Retro Redux (New Version)

Here's a revamped version of Redux Redux which I'm rebuilding from the ground up.

At the moment there's only one game (biplane dogfight) but new mechanics have been added, such as picking up coins to upgrade your plane, and having to dodge missiles.

Once thing I haven't been able to get right is the HUD. I'm trying to make it look good, but keep it as simple as possible. I wonder if the HUD is needed at all?

Anyway, please let me know what you think, thanks.

Added sound effects
Added graphics effects
Particle effects
Work on main menus and other fixes

Still only one game available, but once I'm happy with it I'm going to create variations such as 2vs1 battles.

The Biplane game now has 4 game modes to play. 1 more game mode to come, followed by 5 new games (eventually)

Very nice start.

* Great Intro
* Nice Menu

What I would do is to get the user familiar with the plane/controls before introducing the enemies. In the first couple of runs I thought I was the red plane since it was in the center of the scene. So maybe you could show the green plane first and after a few seconds spawn the enemy?!?
