     A very cool VB space simulation game. This project is for everyone that claims VB can't be used as a game engine. Using home-made buffering methods, I re-wrote the Raptor game engine in VB. Your ship shoots, the bad guys shoot, ships explode, music is played (mp3 format) - this engine has everything. If you've liked the little arcade games people have posted (pong, etc.), you'll be blown away by this full-scale game using hundreds of blits simultaneously. Everything you need is included (including the ocx for playing mp3's), and the code is very concise, clever, and fast. One thing - it's not quite commented fully and the user interface needs some work. I had to rush and finish it for a school project, so there is much left to be done. I am looking for someone to do custom graphics (I am using the ones from Raptor for now) and I will revamp the game to be entirely like Raptor (level editors, weapon upgrades, etc.) for commercial distribution. Contact me ( if interested. BTW - use the arrow keys to move and the space bar to shoot.
