Title: Redshirt Fodder - Code a game competition - May 4th to June 30th New
Post by: therevills on June 30, 2018, 01:19:47 PM
My entry for the Mixed Genre competition is "Redshirt Fodder"

Option 1 : Retro / Strategy

Inspired by the great Cannon Fodder game on the Amiga and Star Trek  :P

Again I ran out of time for everything I wanted to do... (last week I was in Brisbane for a holiday) but it was fun to code :)

I enjoyed playing this one, especially as I completed all 5 missions on my very first go!  ;D :P

Admittedly I was responsible for the deaths of far too many Redshirts, so I will give it some more plays with the aim of not getting quite so many of 'em slaughtered.

Perhaps this game's a bit too easy overall? Of course, I would rather a game be relatively easy (at least initially) than be frustratingly difficult right from the beginning. But that's really just the non-game-player in me speaking.

Thanks guys :)

@BasicBoy - I was going to create more levels which got harder over time, I wanted to increase the skill level of both the Redshirts and the Clingons. Also different types of enemies were on my TODO list but of course I ran out of time :(

Uploaded v1.01 which fixes some of the cracks which were appearing in the tile maps.
