White Dwarf is the second Homebrew project for the Nintendo DS by preussie. It is a small Arcade style shooter.
Move ship over the map and kill everything that moves. After wiped out all nasty enemies, player would advance to the next more difficult level.
Every time an enemy is destroied (discounting meteorite fragments), this will release a power-up that will help resisting the attack of the upper levels. These objects come at random, and nothing guarantees that go the same for each item:
- Energy (Power): Increases the life of the ship in 10 points.
- Shield (armor): Makes the ship invincible for 10-20 seconds (variable).
- Power Bullet (bullet power): Each X shots, one bullet to be a (white), which does double damage.
- Helper Energy Ball (assistant energy ball): Appears to be around a ball around the house (up to 5).
