Learning from experience

The basic gameplay of Railgunners will be familiar to anyone who's played a shoot-'em-up side-scroller. You fly your ship around, zapping alien enemies. Each combination of pilot and ship provides different advantages. However, there are two important twists. The first is that during each mission, your ship's energy will eventually run out (and, of course, you might be killed). When that happens, you return to base, where you can upgrade your ship. The second innovation is that you're launched into each level by the titular railgun, which launches you further into each level as it is upgraded, saving some time. However, each enemy wave is different; they're procedurally generated, not the repeating patterns found in other shoot-'em-up games.
