Hi guys.

Knight guy in low res world  was originally my first attempt to program a platformer for the 2600 (and my second attempt to program a game after the primitive Drakko) back when I started to learn batari back in 2018. Now after I remade the "engine" I decided to re write it from scratch, but now with some humble metroidvania touch.

 

I have completed the first public beta and I am sharing it here. Testing and feedback will be appreciated :)

NEW BETA 2020-05-31

Third boss added.

New Item (bubble).

Also I THINK I catch and all those pesky overcycles.

It's looking great so far! I enjoyed seeing it on the show.  🙂 

 

One nitpicky request - I love the looks of the springy-thingees, but I think they should extend a little bit more when you jump on them.

 

Apart from that, the visuals are amazing, as always!

Yeah, I suppose I can give them a pixel or two more :)

Game looks good and plays good. I saw on my PAL-console, that some colors are correct even in PAL, but some not, for example the most enemies have wrong color. Can you release a PAL60 version of your game please?

Really enjoyed the beta. It looks and controls great.  I liked how you build upon your current inventory to open up new spots. The boss battles were also fun and a nice change of pace from the platforming.

Really awesome vhzc!! Love the two new bosses.

 

The first new one took a bit to get the pattern. The second one was super fun to fight but was a lot easier. As per usual, the new levels were tons of fun!

 

The new Greensleeves music is a nice touch.

I played some on my Jr, and didn't notice any overcycling issues with this version. It's looking good!

Cool, thanks  for testing.

I was doing a gosub call to a check lives routine when I shouldn't and since it is a bankswitching rom the gosub cost several cycles and that was causing some problems, but I think all is ok now.

I bet these would go well in Orlando, home of the UCF Knights...
