George

Recommended Posts

My game I spent literally almost all morning on. I got up at about 2 and quit at 9 or so. I have as a result, a beginning of a game. I named it George. Right now George is on an alien planet with toxic grass. His goal is to get to the end of the path that stretches out a long winding way. The path area scrolls up and down. Hard parts were getting a second playfield in (had to use bogax's asm code from Castle of Doom), and all subsequent playfields must be done that way due to the weird code I used for the path area. The level here is reminiscent of my climbing stage of my old Jack and the Beanstalk game, except instead of skipping from screen to screen, it scrolls. Some stuff to add is music, which I want to fill up the rest of the bank with. So I should have two fairly large songs: One for the title screen and one for level 1: Toxic Grass Path. So, what do you think?

Good start!

 

A couple of ideas:

- Use the score as a timer. Reach the end before the timer expires.

- Alien Planet? Must be alien wildlife, have some type of flying creature that randomly moves around the screen that the player must avoid.

New version. Score is now health. If it drops below 100 the game ends. Which is kind of hard to do right now, but not near the end of the game. Added a bird that tries to get you. It chirps first before it appears. Sometimes it won't appear. Because you're not in its vicinity, so it's not a bug (at least I don't think.) The longer the bird touches you, the more points you lose. I also made it so going off the path costs 20 health points.
