Have been fooling around with a game concept over the last week or so. Something perhaps similar to a Pitfall or HERO style game (single screen platform scroller I guess), set on some strange world where the player can jump and also use a Jetpack in certain areas. I don't envisage any shooting, just a "jump and avoid" style game.
Not sure at this stage if it should be something like Pitfall where it is one large continuous world, or more along the lines of HERO where each individual level is made up of several screens. I think I like the hero style as it seems to offer more flexibility.
Have a few ideas on how to draw each screen efficiently without using too much memory but do expect to rely on loading from disc from time to time. Would be XB compiled and need sprite flickering turned off, or have F18 due to the multicoloured sprites.
I have put together some screen ideas and experimenting with basic themes. I do like the overall feel of it so far.
