I just watched the video, and I must say I'm dissapointed.

The extra Frisbee weapons are cool - but the gun and hammer just look stupid.

One of the reasons I fell in love with this game is because of it's cute style, as if it were Kirby or Mario. But I feel that's been ruined by these out of place weapons.

JUST KEEP THE FRISBEES! NOTHING ELSE!

This is really an original idea to have an Frisbee/YoYo for an weapon. The system works well. The graphics are nice as well. I haven't gone through much because I keep on dieing. (Reason: I keep thinking jump is up).

This makes me think about original weapons.

Good Work.

Btw, why is the topic link split up, with the Page Numbers in between?

The star symbol in the title is weird. I think it causes it.

Anyway the progress is slow at the moment :rolleyes:
About the hammer and the gun - I need more opinions to decide :(
The new video is not from the final demo... when I give it to my friends to test it, maybe some things will be changed.

Well, I really enjoyed this (short but sweet) demo of Purple. The graphics are nicely put together. The music fits the experience. The game play was very smooth and enjoyable. Not much so far (as with level variation and such) because of the length. No worries though – this has potential. Keep up the good work, I await the full version! ;)

I think the new weapons look cool. You don't want your game to be exactly like Kirby or Mario anyway, and those things will help you differentiate further. It's great.

This game rocks!

Things you will need to add are secret levels and a world map. Keep up the Graphics, Gameplay and Level Design and I will DEFINITLEY RATE THIS A 10/10.

Also if you want to make your game run smoother, disable un-needed instances outside of view.

They are disabled... don't worry, the second demo will run faster than the first :blink:
I optimized it a bit... I turned some decoration objects into tilesets and used surfaces for some things.

By the way, these days I'll update some of the uglier screens on the site (the intro and map one)
I'm very busy with school and other stuff, that's why the progress is so slow... sorry.

Hi there,

I was really looking forward to playing Purple, but unfortunately for me its not Vista compatible, is there any chance of a vista version or is it too much hassle at this stage ;)

10/10! Very impressed! Cute graphics, great music, good controls! Love the sounds when you get Game Over!

I felt it as a very enjoyable game that wasn't too easy, wasn't too hard, but just completely satisfied!

I have returned to this forum, a lot more mature than I was back then. I will improve my game making skills, and not give up unless a fatal error occurs.

I like the new demo a lot. The music is good; it probably does fit better. I like the new frisbee controls, as they feel much smoother.

Those growing and shrinking diamonds in the world-select screen are mesmerizing! How exactly did you do that?


Anyway, keep up the excellent work!

O M G

DOWNLOADING NOW!

EDIT: Played it, just as good as it was before.
Only thing you need to do is allow ESC to exit the Highscores room ( I know you can use the jump key ), I just think it would be good.

Great game, keep it up.

Thanks for the comments!

@thetagames
It's hard to explain how I did it, but I used only this

@brod
In readme.htm see the "Tested on" section...

@Doogie Forever
I'll fix it in the full version (i'll also make it that you can select with Enter on the map screen).

You actually waited for 8 months :P
(I released the first - June 2007)

By the way, I'm only going to continue the project if there is lots of interest in it - reviews, comments, suggestions... I'm currently taking a break from Game Maker but next month I may start working again. :P

hah, i knew it. I couldnt find the screwdriver in level 4.

Anyways:

Gameplay: It was really good, and the weapon variety was perfect. All I can suggest is that you allow for more than two weapons to be held at one time.

Graphics: Simple and sweet, no fall back here. The night and day effects impressed me.

Sound/music: Again, the music was varied, and fit with the game well.

Replayability: Well, considering I've played it over 10 times, you get a good score here. Possibility to save after completing a level?

Overall score: 8/10. Great job on this demo, I'm extremely addicted to it.

Thank you!

@CaKsTeR
There will be a save at the start of each world... and I'll probably put checkpoints in the middle of the levels + more extra stuff.
World 1 will be better in the full version :skull:

@drazzke
You downloaded the fixed version, right? :GM072:

There are a few more unpleasant bugs that need fixing, I'll probably reupload again next week, meh :/

Oh and also, that stupid brick that drops on you in level two, is really annoying Q_Q.

I died 4 times because I got hit with one hp left.

You can get stuck in level two, if you get the hammer, hit the first pink block (with the arrow), and go through and get hurt. Then you're stuck between two pink blocks and you have to restart.

Just remember to be careful at the end of level 2 :D
When it falls, run left...

And the part between the two pink blocks is EASY, how did you get hurt in there :?
But I'll put a hammer block there if it's so annoying :D

There will be no more demos until I finish the game (if I finish it).
