Cool.  I feel like the best DrTypo games are well deserving of a cart release.  

I've got 3 of his on carts. I'd totally want this on a cart. If not and there's a CD you may be the one to make the CD case insert for it ;) I've seen your other CD inserts and they have really helped me make my shelf look great!

Works fine on GameDrive... graphics style reminds me of Commanche on the PC in the late 1990s I think.  Jaguar seems to be well suited to this style of 3D graphics... silky smooth framerate.  Great work!

What a very nice release this is..

 

I've only made it to the water level.

Anyone got further, how many levels are there?

There are 7 levels, including 1 bonus level.

Boss fight ?

No boss fight, sorry. I did consider adding a boss fight at the end but a boss must have all kind of interesting moves and I'm too lazy to program this kind of stuff.

The bonus level is more like a comic relief :)

Here's a playthrough of the entire game. The levels are gorgeous with Canyon being my current favorite. The red is beautiful:lust: The others are remarkable as well though and Water was a close second.
Really like the enemies (towers?) on the ground. Shooting them is a lot easier as they don't zip around or go higher than your crosshairs are able.

 

Video breakdown:

Level 1/2 transition screen starts at 2:27
2/3 starts at 4:49
3/4 @ 7:11
4/5 @ 8:40
5/6 @ 11:03
6/7 @ 13:24
End screen @ 15:47

 

 

 

Is there a way to increase the volume on the yellow sphere pick up sound? Sometimes I can't tell if I picked it up as the (awesome) soundtrack muffles it. This then leads me to think the hit detection is off, assuming I missed the sphere, but looked dead on it on screen.

Either way, EXCELLENT game and another go-to for some quick play joining the ranks of TubeSE, Rebooteroids, Fallen Angel, Breakout 2000 and a few others..:thumbsup:

 

 

 

 

Original darker version and stats here

 

Level 1/2 transition screen starts at 2:35
2/3 starts at 4:56
3/4 @ 7:18
4/5 @ 8:50
5/6 @ 11:12
6/7 @ 13:33
End screen @ 15:54

No way, I'm just that good :P

sure..... lol. I like how the level that says Computer actually looks like it has buildings and houses on it. I know that's not what they are but I like them and am going to continue to think of them like that  :)

I thought of buildings/houses initially. Looks so damn good.

Great videos Saturn! Appreciate the effort of making and posting them. 😊

 

The game looks fabulous. 

A cart release with hi score saving would be a day 1 purchase for me.

Having finally played it it does seem as if the shields regenerate themselves automatically even without having collected the yellow orbs, is that correct? Also I didn't see a reduction in the laser where it overheats that's actually what I thought the right bar was until I read the instructions and realized that was your distance to the ground. So you could just mash the laser button the whole time then right?

 

All in all this is awesome man! Now if this doesn't get a CD release then need Travis Touchdown/Rick Dangerous to make a CD insert for this one if he can.

@UHATEIT The shields regenerate between levels. They don't regenerate while you play a level unless you collect a yellow orb.

The laser doesn't overheat, you can mash the button the whole time. Now you're giving me ideas... 😈

It was odd watching Saturn's video on YouTube as it seems the shield goes down very minimally during gameplay but then seems to regenerate without collecting an orb. 

 

While there isn't a bar for the laser (which I thought was the right bar) maybe one on the bottom so it times out or overheats otherwise just bash the laser like a mofo!

 

But again I tell you your homebrews are my favorite. Tube SE is the shiz and it's great. I wonder tho if there's a way to ad some more to Gem Race as well since it just goes and goes without an end and then if you run the meter down it never actually kills you when you get to 0. 

 

Sorry for the off topic but I do love your stuff!

Yes indeed. That's an unexpected behaviour! Is Saturn cheating????

I follow Saturn's Sega CD hacks page and have used a hex editor to hack in infinite lives/invincibility codes. I imagine he found a way to hack in some sort of life replenish or invincibility as the meter barely moves haha. 

 

Nothing against Saturn, I wish I knew how to find those things! I can hack them in only if someone tells me where they are. I need that hack for Microcosm.
