The Red Wedge is an experimental game that mixes two popular genres of games. While shooting enemies, you must also jump on constantly moving platforms to avoid falling off the screen. The game progresses with a constant curve: harder enemies gradually appear in greater numbers, and the platforms get further apart. The game (both in graphical style and in theme) is based loosely on the famous Soviet propaganda poster by Eliezer Markovich Lissitzky, Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge ('Whites' refers to the Czarist White Army of Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution, not people of Caucasian race).
<LEFT> and <RIGHT>: Move left and right
<X>: Drop Bomb
- This game's graphical style is entirely vector-based. There is not a single visible sprite image (some invisible sprites are used for collisions).
- I would like to extend my thanks to Smarty, for his GM BASSMOD extension (with which the MOD music is played) and to Jedlas, for his PC Internal Beep extension (with which the opening music, composed of motherboard beeping, is played).
- NEW (Version 1.1): I have made the variable jumping a lot more responsive. I have also added a small amount of friction, and made the horizontal movement more realistic.
