New game - Bushido

Recommended Posts




I made a fighting game, it's strictly 2 player only.



On the start up screen, you see a cherry blossom tree, this is the stage selection screen, move joystick to the right right to choose a level, then player 1 hits the firebutton to start the game.


Joystick to the right or left moves your samurai, moving away from the opponent is quicker then moving forward, enabling swift dodging action!


To jump press up + right or up + left, and push the firebutton to swing your katana while in the air.


Firebutton swings your honorable katana, but be careful, it takes a little while to regain your focus to swing again, this is the prime time to cut your opponent!


Reset switch resets the game.


Notable features:

 3 levels to choose from:

The refreshing spring stage with a blossoming cherry tree, oh, so beautiful.

The Harsh winter stage, set in a freezing cold blizzard
The bridge of destiny - Many legendary samurai duels have been had here.

Players get 3 hits each, on the final hit, you decapitate your opponent! Oh, the gory horror!


Super simple, yet deep - Let the mindgames commence!



As far as I can tell there are zero bugs. I worked very hard on balancing the gameplay and hammering out all the bugs I could find. I think it's perfect. Yet, a fighting game on Atari 2600 can only do so much...Sure, a 1 player mode where you fight an AI samurai would be great, but that is beyond my reach at the moment...Maybe in the sequal...If there will be such a thing, who knows.

Enjoy, and let your inner samurai shine!

Alright, adding jumping is easy enough. I attemped at keeping it somewhat realistic without jumping samurai, but I guess it is more fun to jump around and stab someone in the head, hehe...
