Yuyuko of the Netherworld - Alpha 2

Yuyuko of the Netherworld - Alpha 1

 

Current features:
-Nearly all of the first 3 stages (the only things missing are the boss fights, since I don't have a spriter.)
-Miniboss encounters, (The same miniboss is used as a placeholder in all stages except stage 3, which has it's own unique miniboss.)
-A Variety of enemies, some unique to specific stages.
-The first room is a "Tutorial room" that visually shows all the controls.

 

Controls: (all but "Start" are listed in-game in the tutorial room)
Start - Enter
Movement - Arrow Keys
Jump - Z
Fly - Z repeatedly in midair
Inhale - X
Shoot - C
Quit - Esc

Known Bugs:
-None as far as I can tell.

To-Do List:
-Add the rest of the stages.
-Add more minibosses. (after I get a spriter)
-Add Bosses. (ditto)
-Add more background elements to Stage 1.

 

This is a platformer game I'm working on called Yuyuko of the Netherworld (or 冥府の幽々子 if Google translated it right...). This is essentially a Kirby game with Touhou characters (Like Yami no Rumia (I think that's the title), but I did not know *that* game existed until after I started this project.). The gameplay is closer to the original Kirby's Dreamland (with added elements) with one stage per level and no copy abilities.

 

Here's a play-test video:

This is a fun platformer. It feels fairly complete so far, but I guess you're adding more levels. So I suppose that's why it's still here in the WIP forum.

The gameplay has some of the usual platformer features: obstacles, jumps, enemies, etc. But there's a twist here in how the player defeats them. For example, like jumping on them or inhaling the walls. Funny, but fun.

The graphics are pretty good too. This isn't my favorite style, but you've stayed true to the Touhou look, so that's good for fans of that series. One thing that seemed a bit odd, however, was the game's graphics seem very "cheery" and upbeat. Not what I expect to see in the Netherworld -- but I've only played a few levels, so maybe that comes later.

The controls are responsive, although not everyone will like the floating feel to the jumping. But I did, because I usually suck at difficult jumps, so this was great for me. I also liked how you introduced the controls with in-game images at the beginning. That's a nice touch.

So all said, this is a very good start. I enjoyed what I've played so far. :thumbsup: +1

Thanks for the feedback, it was much appreciated!

There are some things missing, Alpha 1 is only the first stage out of 7. It's also lacking a boss fight (since the spriter left and I now have nobody to make other Touhou characters because I suck at spriteing the more humanoid or organic it looks...)

 

In other words, Alpha 2 is out (it was actually out yesterday, but I was waiting for some feedback before I released it here, It's already released on MotK)

 

Yuyuko of the Netherworld - Alpha 2

New features:
-Added nearly all of stages 2 and 3 (minus the boss fights)
-More enemies, some unique to specific stages.
-Added a unique miniboss to stage 3
-The Black F.O.E. serves as a placeholder miniboss for now.

Known Bugs:
-none, as far as I can tell.

To-Do List:
-Add the rest of the stages.
-Add more minibosses. (after I get a spriter)
-Add Bosses. (ditto)
-Add more background elements to Stage 1.

 

Now with moar video:
