Fireball Dungeon (C64 style) - 8bit wars compo entry
« on: March 14, 2019, 12:02:26 PM »
Hey all,

The story of my entry.. is a strange one..

I didn't have internet for quite a while. I got back online in January, just as I was fixing up an old prototype from 2017. I really didn't know which direction to take it. It was a convoluted mess of ideas :)

Then I found these forums again (I used to lurk a looong time ago) and noticed the 8-bit compo. Somewhere on the forums, Xerra mentioned MultiPaint, so I gave it a blast. I loved it! Thanks Xerra! After a few hours I knew I'd be doing a C64 style version of my game. I didn't think I'd be entering the compo, but it did give me a solid direction for the game. So I started from scratch developing it once I had enough graphics to test.

The game is quite far along that I may just get it done in time for the compo. Who knows :}

The main menu/title screen..

Gameplay is coming along but needs more levels and balancing.

Glad I could help you out and good luck with your project as it looks great. I'd love to see some new faces get a game out for this competition.

@Qube Thanks man! and I appreciate the welcome :)

@Xerra Cheers matey. If you hadn't posted about MultiPaint, I doubt I'd have gotten as far with the C64 style graphics :)

Construct 2 is one of the most powerful, easy to use 2D game engines out there. Believe me, my game won't do it any justice at all :) Thanks for your vote of confidence though :)

dungeon screenshot looks preeetty cool - especially with the old dude and his cat.

"you're dead"-screen is a bit ... hard to recognize - a bit "too big" when scaled up. So on your old 13 inch screen it might look cool but on todays big screens you might experience the effect of sitting in one of the first rows of a big cinema: you cannot "gasp" the whole screen presentation at once.

Thanks man. Still not happy with it so no doubt it'll go through some changes :}

Cheers matey. Yep you're absolutely correct. I had planned to replace it at some point, but for now, it serves its purpose :}
