The idea of the game is a fantasy/scifi shooter game set in some sort of dream like world, scifi tech base, alien hive, hell or whatever. There isn't going to be much of a story. The gameplay, etc will be the more important. /-- The story is this:"Lots of evil monsters attack. Only one person can fight back."
I thought maybe it's easier to draw sprites for a 2D top down game. So I'll only need to draw the sprites from one direction.
At the moment there's a triangle that can be controlled and moved in 8 directions + jump, and shoot small squares.
I haven't completely decided on the movement. It could have controls like in FPS games.. WS: forward/backward, AD: strafe left/right and mouse for aiming/rotating the player, maybe the camera rotates too. Or 8 direction movement, but mouse can aim a crosshair anywhere, bullets/stuff would fly toward it.

S = spawn player
X = destroy player
A = shoot stuff
Arrow keys = move player
