Ever since I have started crafting it, I have always set out to create a balanced and fun game in Starsss. That has not changed one bit but there comes a moment when you have to make the game end.

So when is that moment for Starsss? Notice that you can see your health (HP) on the top left corner of the game?

Starsss - Top Left Corner

Now if it reaches 0, the game will end automatically and you will be shown the game over scene.

Starsss - Game Over!

If in the case of a game over, you will be able to see how many stars you have collected thus far. You will also be able to see the accumulated number of enemies that you have defeated thus far.

Every time you knock into an enemy or get attacked by an enemy's projectile, your health will decrease. And to prevent that from happening, you will have to be alert and be ready to jump away to safety at any moment.

Starsss - Jump away from danger!

Did you also notice that enemies' projectiles were mentioned? That's because I am currently in the process of adding new enemies to Starsss! Here's one of the new enemies that you will encounter in the brick stage.

Starsss - The new Brick Head!

The brick head is a rather chill enemy. It moves randomly and will sometimes stop just to chill and relax. However, if it manages to spot you, it will launch a brick at you (no joke).

Starsss - It shoots bricks!

So if you do not want your health to decrease, be sure to avoid it.

Starsss - Avoid those bricks!

Now what fun would there be if only enemies get something new? I have also added a new weapon for you - the fireball!

Starsss - A new weapon - the Fireball!

The fireball does more damage than wave but has a longer recharge period. So you will have to carefully time and aim your shots to avoid being vulnerable. So what do you think of the new enemy and weapon? You can also check out how the game over scene is added to Starsss on Youtube below!
