So you finished it!
It's cool, you already know I like it, but this is even cooler. It's also very hard. I tried about 10 times, and I still haven't gotten over 4000 points. o_O I will beat the highscore!
Haha good luck with that
When I set my record I forgot to submit the score, but that was a sweet 28,000 ish
I've got a few gripes, though. First, the music. There is none! I know you have a music on/off button, but whichever way I toggle it, there is no music.
Ah yes I forgot to mention that there is indeed no music in this version- I will be updating that when my composer sends me the final piece, I thought I'd release it now for some comments on the gameplay
I don't think all the sounds are suitable. Also, I think it lacks a few.. i.e. a jumping sound. I know it doesn't sound like much, but you'd be surprised how much a simple jumping sound adds.
Ah yes nice idea, when adding sounds I wandered if I had missed any, so i should get them in for when i add the music too.
The figure it not animated? Surprised me at first, didn't mind as I played the game. I still think, having a little running left/right animation, say, 2-3 frames, and a single 'jumping' frame, (kinda like a Mario jump)
All the die animations are the same. Wouldn't it be cool, if when he got struck by lighting, he went all 'shock' like, when he gets crushed by blocks, there is a kinda.. err.. well maybe keep it family friendly
It just adds a little something extra, ya know?
Yea I agree I think a little animation would be cool- I tried but although I did actually do all the graphics for this game, when it comes to side-on animation I just can't do it, maybe I'll ask in the graphics forum. And I think it would be cool to have different death images aswell, I'll have to add them in too
@pinpickle: I believe it spices up somewhat, the higher your score gets. Not that I've managed to get my score that high...
It's true, as time goes on more hazards start appearing, and already existing hazards get more hazardarous (extra lightning from thunder clouds, etc).
Anyway, apart from those gripes, it's a really great game, good work. This is a better than a lot of games I've seen in the Cage matches lately, so hopefully you'll get entered I would rate it, but I'm wary that you would consider making this an entrant for competition 05... the gameplay would suit it well.
Thanks alot for this, really useful
As for competition 05, I decided I wouldn't enter this, although it was the first thing I thought when I read the specifications of how perfect this would have been for it. i tried the game scaled down to 320x240 so it would fit in the rules, but it just wasn't the same somehow, so I think I'm gonna just work on something completly new for it (keep me occupied for the next few months then). As for cage match, that would be cool, I've never been in one! Thanks again
