More screenshots from "Space Tunneller"

Everything thinks my attempt at a spaceship looks like the TARDIS!!  (Well, I guess that IS a spaceship of sorts, so maybe I shouldn't feel too bad...??)

Added Hull and Shield status bars, sorted out the intro cut-scene, and added more tunnels to traverse through.  It's actually really easy to make simple arcade games with AGS, who knew?  Might make a few more.  Have been wondering for a long time about making a Super Sprint type game.  But anyway, first things first... need to get this one finished by the end of December.
