TO MODERATORS: I know this is a duplicated topic, but this is the one that will be active.

Poke Wars: The War.

Poke Wars is about poking all of the Pokers. Pokers are the creatures you have to poke to get to the boss. The first is the Dumb Poke, in the menu beside the text "Play". The second is the Medium Poke, the one under Dumb Poke. And the third one is Smart Poke, the one under Medium Poke. The idea is simple: poke the Pokers to get to the boss... easy. But don't get all exited. In the next update, there will be modes: Boss Battle, or Survival. Boss Battle is already in the game, but Survival is when the Pokers fight back. The hardest poke to kill would be the EnderPoker.

DO NOT PRESS E, Press enter.

Pictures will come soon!

v1.5 Download link:
Mediafire
Direct Download

v1.5 (current)
- Added new Pokes: Explode Poke, and Smarty Poke
- Level 2 pokes do damage now.
- Level 3 (Boss) does damage now, and you can lose.

Old Updates

My Highest Miss Points was -1! Whats yours?

Hey, I want to play but your link isn't working for me. Can you put a mirror up?
I'm a man who crawled out of hell. It'll take more than this to kill me.

A nice simple idea, that could become something very fun. Here's some feedback and ideas:

You really need to change the text that says E to fight boss, or change the key to E. That's a 2 second fix and infuriating. Better yet, make the play click somewhere to fight the boss, as having to reach for the keyboard is unnecessary in this mouse controlled game. Like a "click here to fight the boss". or maybe you don't need that at all and just start the boss fight.
Put the feedback/score text somewhere outside of the play area (make the play area smaller). So place the text low on the screen and make the pokes' random placement be limited to above this (eg y=random(room_height-100)
Have a penalty for missing during the first round of play. Lie you do during the boss fight.
Stop counting misses in the boss fight once the boss is dead.
Count up instead of down for misses.
Have rewards for successful pokes in a row. Either a score, or some audio/visual feedback
Remove the ability to press F1 for help, or put something there. (Global game settings)
Allow the player to click the text as well as the poke thingy to select things in the main menu (make a mask for the main menu sprites to do this)

It's a nice simple concept that could be fleshed out into a fun game.

Good luck,
Bjorn

Lol, I'm seriously getting deja vu here...
Is it just me, or is this the exact same version that you have in your old topic for this game? I realized it after reading it cause that one's on the first page too.
I also figured out the secret to beating the boss. He moves after you have the mouse over him for a second, so you have to click him right away.

Good ideas there. I am working on a completely new interface, but the same concept. I'll probably use the clicking thing

Put the feedback/score text somewhere outside of the play area (make the play area smaller). So place the text low on the screen

i am fixing that, i made Poke Wars when i thought that the gm variable score was awesome.

and make the pokes' random placement be limited to above this (eg y=random(room_height-100) Sure I will.
Have a penalty for missing during the first round of play. Lie you do during the boss fight. Sure will
Stop counting misses in the boss fight once the boss is dead.Yup
Count up instead of down for misses.Yup
Have rewards for successful pokes in a row. Either a score, or some audio/visual feedback Sure.
Remove the ability to press F1 for help, or put something there. (Global game settings) Sure.
Allow the player to click the text as well as the poke thingy to select things in the main menu (make a mask for the main menu sprites to do this) Sure.

It's a nice simple concept that could be fleshed out into a fun game.

Thank you!

Good luck,

Nevermind. In 3 weeks is my spring break.. grr... Anyway.. tomorrow I will probably have part of version 1.1/0.1 done. So ill upload that.

By the way, has anyone played it yet? Does it have potential? Since you know what the next updates will be, will you want to keep playing? Should I get new graphics? Should I not? Should I stick with this till the end? Please, if you play, comment, and answer some of those questions Thank you. :)

If you are giving up after a week (or less) of no comments on these relatively inactive forums then you probably don't have what it takes to finish a game. Not trying to be rude, but just focus on making it what you want and people will try it as you make updates. These forums aren't really all that active so don't get your hopes up on tons of feedback.

No offence or anything, but I remember you starting and abandoning about five games cause you kept thinking of something better. Stick with this one first. I wanna see you finish at least one game instead of constantly starting new ones. :thumbsup:
