SDL 2 Shooter - 2D shooter with online highscore table

I was stuck for something to do today, so I took one of my game tutorials and slapped an online highscore table into it. The game is a free download from

The aim is simple: shoot the enemies, collect the points pods, and get a high score. Arrow keys to move, left control to fire.

Binary is included in the archive. There is currently no way to adjust the sound and music.

There’s a limit of 8 score positions. This is just for larks, so let me know how you get on. And if you have suggestions for improvements.


I’m currently working on this tutorial you posted for this project. Thanks for putting it up. It’s a great intro into SDL2.
