Xero's Warriors


This game draws largely from Death Worm by JTR. It has been made for the ancient civilisations YoYoGames competition.

Story
----------------
The Xero's get greedy and decide to try and poach a kraken. Poseidon reanimates a severed kraken limb, which only has one purpose: Revenge!

Features
----------------
o Special abilities are achieved by getting large combos.

o The wave moves! It's actually made up of many triangles. There is a option to turn this off though if your computer is struggling.

o The Xero enemies range from defenseless Xero fleeing on floating crates to a mighty battleship (which you can break!).

o A custom scoreboard!

o The options menu saves its configuration so that the game will remember your options (inc after closing down).

Information
----------------
Version: gm7 (Vista compatible!)
Fullscreen: Default yes but you can change this in the options menu.

Screenshots
----------------
Screen001
Screen002

Here's a lower resolution version of the second screenshot:

Highscores

Shade-----331-----12

Have fun!

You should host your picture online so that nobody has to download them just to see what the game is like.

Interesting Looking. I Think that you should also upload the screenshots to another site. That would make it a lot easier than downloading it like I did. It almost made me skip looking because I was a little lazy

This is really fun. The only thing i was annoyed by was the inability to crush things with anything more than the tip of the tentacly green thingamajig.

I liked the random little guys in boats that shot at you with arrows... But how do you kill the strange flying people? >.< I can't reach them.

for some reason, whether it is intentional or not, the waves at the top of the water are a slightly darker shade of blue that the water they are connected to.

Anyway, I like this game (despite the fact it's 11MB, but I have a feeling I know why it is so big.)

But what is the point of the celtic pattern at the top? It seems completely random.

Oh, and i like the radial menu. ^^

This, here, this is a signature. And if the above post doesn't make sense, chances are I'm messing with your brain.

Thanks quadriseene,

Hmm I think thats a good idea if other people agree, I'll add it in and update the game.

You can get em' wit the first three combo abilities. :)

for some reason, whether it is intentional or not, the waves at the top of the water are a slightly darker shade of blue that the water they are connected to.


Yeah I suppose it was, just to give it more definition.. but I'll see what it looks like in the same shade.

But what is the point of the celtic pattern at the top? It seems completely random.


Lol, it's the healthbar, I should have put that in the tutorial! :D

Thanks for your detailed reply!

Yeah I got that error as well just now.

This game is highly amusing :D I had a blast just jumping like a dolphin!

I do agree with quadriseene that it was a bit difficult trying to hit stuff with just the tip of the head.

Good luck in the competition!

Got the sake as Kyle_Solo. It seems nobody got this error before the update, you should thorough-test before releasing updates.

On the good side, this game is pretty cool. Simple graphics (a nice style but i think a bit of shading would help) and a fairly subtle influence from Death Worm. To me, it's just Death Worm with combos. But I like the simplicity of the game.

Oh my... That was pretty dumb. I've uploaded v1.1b and the download link should point to it. This time I made sure all the combo's work and the tutorial still worked (when altering the comob's it can adversely effect the dependant tutorial).

Thanks Rhys! I value your comments :3

I'm pretty much just a programmer I don't do much graphics at all, the only time I do sprites are for my competition games (apart from a few stand ins). :skull:

Your right, it pretty much is Death Worm with combos... :) and yeah I wanted to make a more simpler game, a game that I could get done quicker and a game that I could do all the content of.

Out of curiosity, has anyone clicked the 'story' button of the main menu and enjoyed it? You never know there could even be a political comment...

Yeah I think it would be hard to beat the original outright, unless 2Dcube decided to make it :P

Thanks, though if it were with a sea serpent eating people what would be the difference? Wouldn't it just look different?

Wow thanks! I'm glad you got so much enjoyment out of my game! :GM073:


Lol I like how you quote me in the subtitle :skull:


Lol I should quote that next!

btw, it was a great line, it would be a shame not to quote it! xD

yay for screenies!

what is the point in the game? is it just to kill as many as you can before you die? the story is good at the start, so i know u should be capable of implimenting some kind of story throughout the game. it would be soo much better.

this game is kindof the same as deathworm, if you have heard of it before or gotten the idea from that game? but personally i like this game better, i like the boat 'n' stuff.

GIVE IT A STORY THROUGH THE GAME! 8/10 pretty good.

Thanks for the 8/10!
The point is simply revenge! Get those little Xero XD
Thats a good point actually, I decided to not end the story because of the score based gameplay. However I think that I could have made an ending when you get killed now that I think about it.

---

I've added a high score list to my first post, so if you get a good score post your score & combo and I'll add you to the list. :)
Btw Shade is a friend of mine
