MONSTER MANAGEMENT SECURITY BUREAU OF CINCINNATI
This is an eye-catcher for a booth at a comic convention. Writer/Artist Ricky Henry wanted something to draw crowds in for his comic/manga work Monster Management Security Bureau of Cincinnati.
The comic convention is in September so development and production obviously needs to be done by then. This is my only project wth a hard deadline right now.
Instructions (as of FINAL build 027)
Players may use the fire button to launch lasers at the Giant Enemy Cicadas (grey rectangles) for a point each.
Friendly fire will cause target player to warp to a random location.
The round bonus that randomly appears on the screen summons the giant robot to destroy some cicadas.
As the players score increases the volume of cicadas invading increases.
If all the letters in Cincinnati are destroyed the game ends.
At the game over screen you can view which player (blue or red) got the higher score.
Given enough time the title screen goes in-game and the game over screen cycles to the title screen.
Progress reports will follow in subsequent post. The current build should be in the first post unless some weird account restictions prevent it.
Programming and some design and in-game media by me.
M.M.S.B.C. is the work of Ricky Henry and Chad Schoettle
Big thanks to R.T., RevEng and AtariAge in general. No way this would ever have a chance without you guys.
