PERIL wip game

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I was never totally satisfied with the previous version of PERIL, so a couple of months ago I decided to remade it from scratch as a 32k game, keeping the same concept, but with new sprites, playfields and some new mechanics too.

 

Current Version (Feb 24)

Corrects a little bug and tweaks some timing.

New title screen

NewPeril20200224.bin

Mainly cosmetic changes, some tweaks in difficulty.

 

NewPeril20200217.bin

 

Corrects a bug that avoided restart with the button after lose all the lives.

Corrects a bug in Pause.

 

NewPeril20200207b.bin

 

New BETA (Feb 07)

NewPeril20200207.bin

 

So here is the first public beta:

NewPeril20200110.bin

 

Testing and feedback will be appreciated.

 

James from the excellent twitch and youtube channel ZEROPAGE homebrew featured it in his show, so you could check it:

Fort Apocalypse is one of my inspiration, yes. But also has a little of Caverns of Mars... and a lot of my previous game Knight Guy :P

 

It remains me Fort Apocalypse from a8.o

"Don't touch anything, everything will kill you", you should call this game "Australia", it has a big spider anyway!

I really like this. Is a .bin file available?

 

Not yet. I have 7 screens coded, when I reach at least 10 I will release a playable demo bin. My goal is 28 screens as in my previous game.

Just tried the bin. Liking it a lot so far. Frustrating, but good! And I like the graphics as well. Keep working on it!

Little correction: Last night I shared a version with only 11 screens instead of the 12 that I announced.

Now I have added a correct 12 screens version to the originial post.

I like the new "flashlight" level where only a circle around you is lit, which is an effect I know from the game "Fear of the Dark" from @MemberAtarian.

 

I wasn't aware about that game, it looks great and that TIA rendition of the iron maiden's song is really cool!.

Very cool game so far. One thing I would suggest adding is a time-based bonus for completing each room.

 

That's a great idea!, I added a new rom to the original post that includes it.

If you are making a tribute to Fort Apocalypse then you may have a stage with "plexar was here".

or at least to mention Plexar :)

I am not making the game as a tribute or port of any especific game. It has obvious similarities with Fort Apocalypse, but I get inspiration from various sources, including platformers as Megaman
