I was trying to get this done for Halloween, but...

Ahh, that's very cool, and more difficult to program! Have any other games on the 7800 used this technique?

 

..Al

Other 7800 games that used this technique

 

Commando

Tower Toppler

Dark Chambers

If I might suggest - I know movie tie-ins are cd letter bait, but I think a property like Shaun of the Dead could be used here and Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg would love it. Add in elements of the film, fence jumping, blending in, killing Philip, finding your way to the Winchester Pub.

 

And then you could use yet same engine to make the entire Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, following with Hott Fuzz and the World's End.

...and now we have the name: "Zombie Brigade" Thanks guys! (although "Streets Of The Dead" was very close!) I originally wanted to call it World War Z but I think a certain Movie Studio might have an issue with that. :ponder:

 

@RandomTerrain: :lol:

 

Thanks for the compliments... I think I need to rewrite the collision detection section but when I have at least a demo I will post a binary... But it won't be for a little while because I am pretty far behind. :(

 

 

LOL at some of the names

 

Collision detection, you say? :) Might you be up for adding that to Missing in Action too? :)

 

By the way, everyone over in the 7800 group on Facebook is singing high praises in your honor, Bob. That and they love the pics of your custom 7800 paint jobs.

I think you're going to call this game, "Save Yourself Using Extreme Violence Upon Oxygen Deprived Brain Damaged Puffer Fish Toxin Poison Victims".

Death Street 7800

+1. Because it reminds me of Death Race 2000.

 

Fantastic looking work to all involved. Can't wait to play it!

Attack of the video game collectors who only purchase games in sealed plastic slabs which have been graded by an "expert" grader...

'Blending in' has been in several different zombie movie franchises, and would be a great mechanic to have, maybe for bonus rounds or something? Walk back and forth over a dead zombie a few times, then only move slowly or your cover is blown. Maybe only lasts 20 seconds or something. Just a thought.

GTA meets Zombies Ate My Neighbors? I recently picked up Zombies Ate My Neighbors at my local Game-X-Change. Pretty fun for what it is.

 

Is your new homebrew more of an avoidance game, or do you simply kill everything in sight?

Holy Crap!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. :) I hope this game lives up to your expectations...

The only reason I might not call it "Streets Of The Dead" is because the scene depicted above is only one of a few environments (i.e. a graveyard, neighborhood, etc.)

 

hmmmm..... so many good ideas here. I probably shouldn't put the cart before the horse though.

 

We're having a Halloween day at work, so I won't be able to work on the game today. I'll be leaving for work in about an hour:

Yeah I was thinking of Death Race 2000 when I thought of Death Street 7800. That movie is my fav. along with Mad Max.
