Hi guys! How are you all doing? I hope you all are OK in these hard times. I wanted to let you know that we (Kai Magazine as developer and Elektronite as publisher) are working on the remake of the Intellivision's original TNT Cowboy, with the same essence that you enjoyed so much (as many people told us) but better graphics, musics and longer game-play. The game has the same depth and fun as the original: A "Final Fantasy" kind of game (where you can level up your character, accept quests, earn money, build your reputation, buy abilities and better equipment, etc) but instead of boring turn based combats, you get to blow up all those mutant beasts and undead creatures with TNT charges in real time! Regardless of this last statement, it is family friendly, it is aimed for all ages. The game will also have new features such as multiplayer! We thought it would be fun for those who played the original game, to be able to compare certain key elements and areas of the original game versus the remake's same elements and areas, so here you can see a bunch of pics, showing the original Intellivision’s graphics, and the remade graphics of those areas. I hope they are shown in the same order I uploaded them, so they are easier to compare ^_^! Many graphics and elements still need to be improved, such as the main character itself and some background details, so the final game will probably look much better than this. We are developing the game in Unity, so it can be easily ported to any modern console or device. We are aiming the game performance to work (with different quality settings) to the following systems: -Amico -Atari VCS -Nintendo Switch -PC (Steam) Other systems might be considered in the future. We will publish a promo video shortly, so stay tuned if you are interested in this game. Please let us know what you think about it, and for which systems would you like to see this game published in. Stay safe!
Hello everyone, I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine (Developer of Ninja Odyssey). Here we are again to let you know that we FINISHED the second game for Intellivision (now it is in beta-testing process) and that it will be published by Elektronite on April if the betatesting process checks out. The game’s name is: TNT Cowboy An explosive Western Action RPG. Imagine playing a game such as Zelda or Final Fantasy, in which you defeat your enemies by blowing them up with TNT charges. Yes, this game is a full blown action RPG with experience points, level ups, money, quests, etc, but also, the combats have Bomberman elements. Just watch the video and you will understand (NTSC colors): https://youtu.be/Ws0aIlTEql0 It can’t be appreciated on the video but the game works completely smooth at 60 fps (50fps on Pal/Secam) but the video conversion and emulator and vsync problems make it impossible for me to record a 1:1 video. This game also features a real time shadow system which modifies the shadow casted by the solid elements in the game as they change (due to the explosions) and the main character gets affected by the shadows as well. This game took us thousands of man hours to complete and it is really big. There is a full screen intro with several images, an ending with the same, several complex BGM, many many areas to play etc. The game is more than 200Kb big, which if I am not mistaken, it is the biggest finished game for Intellivision ever created (not demo, there are bigger demos). I usually make Kai Magazine covers myself (such as Ninja Odyssey and many of our other previous games) but for this game I hired a professional cover artist who did a really nice job. I also hired a music composer and I wrote and adapted the music on Intellivision format. We all went the extra mile for this game to make it as big as we could. I really hope you like it and that you will support it so we can continue making games for Intellivision. On that regard, I can tell you that we started the development on the third game already. “Antropomorphic Force” will be a fast-paced frenetic Sci-Fi Arcade Space Shooter with humanoid shaped robots, weird aliens, multiple scroll layers, multi-colored sprites (player and enemies) and lots and lots of stuff moving on the screen at the same time. We will show you something as the game advances further, but I can tell you that it already looks better than Ninja Odyssey and TNT Cowboy. As we learn more about the Intellivision hardware we can do better stuff. Thank you everyone for your support! Special thanks to Elektronite, Artrag, Nanochess,Victor Sanchez, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Xavi Sorinas for making this possible!
So what do people think of this game so far? Generally I am enjoying playing it online and with friends. I have it for Genesis, SNES, Saturn, N64, etc. How do you guys feel that this game stacks up against some of those versions. Things I like about it: -Its Bomberman, which is always a good thing -Nice crisp attractive graphics -Good soundtrack -Good gameplay options for the most part so far -Online play and ranking system seems good A few minor annoyances: -You can't play in league mode online with a friend, just as a single player. -No local multiplayer two player mode. You have to play VS two Computer opponents with really good (ie cheap) AI. No place in options to change their difficulty level. Yes the idea of playing with eight people and four switches sounds fun, but it's more realistic that you will be playing with a friend. Why no good two player only option? And three player while they are at it would be nice -Control seems a little sluggish, which makes a game like this tough. Sometimes my Bomberman takes an extra second or two to react when I am frantically moving the analog stick. Also the punch bomb and kick bomb buttons don't react well for me, only working some of the time. Pretty annoying. -The "online manual" doesn't have a section which explains the power ups and what they do. Enjoying this one so far but it doesn't feel quite "done." Hoping a small update or two might rectify some of these issue. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and reading a review or two as they come in.
