Mashup between Indiana Jones and PoP

Recommended Posts

I've been doing this following my last game, and it is mostly the same kind of game, like Dragon's Lair where you must press a key to evade a danger.

But I used the sprite of Prince of Persia. But as I also wanted to do Indiana Jones Last Crusade the Action-Game, but I was lazy to do it properly I established the setting of this Prince of Persia like the one in Indiana Jones game. The name of the game is Prince of Indiana. It is a stupid name. I was about to call it Viscount of Persia which is even more silly. And that is the name that appears in the source code: http://mauisland.byethost24.com/animator/viscount/animat.txt

The other files referred in the text file are in the same folder if you want to look at them.

The file shows only the first level. I hope I can make more.

Like it so far, I've never been a fan of the Dragon's Lair games. Visual impressive but frustrated me to no end, guess I'm just odd. The original game you made is quite a feat and shows folks what the 2600 is capable of given talented programers. I love the idea of this one, I'm a huge fan of the Prince of Persia series and love where this is going design wise. Animations are fluid, is there any way with this game to give control to the character versus the Dragon's Lair style as your other game? Left and right movement of the character with the joystick would be amazing. With your current design it feels like a mix between a endless runner and DL hybrid.

Thank you very much for your comments!! I am not that big fan of Dragon's Lair either. But as a cartoon it is great.

Sadly I cannot put a lot of interaction in the game because just as DL, it is mostly a cartoon. It is a lot easier to do a game like this programming wise. The effort of programming must be put in the "engine". The code that "sends" the frames to the screen. It is a known technique that uses players sprites to create an image. But are better implementations of it out there.

Congratulations on the game! Creative and I see that there is a lot of potential to be explored
in this game mechanic!
At first, I thought it was just an animation with no control over the character! Big mistake.
Keep investing in it, it has everything to be an excellent title for the 2600 👏

Unfortunately I have problems with my computer. I continued developing it and uploading the source code. The source code is more up to date than the binary. I can still develop it in older machines but I cannot test it at least wholly because I need newer Stella emulators to load a 128k ROM. But hopefully I will fix the problem soon.

I finally could fix my computer. But couldn't upload the source so I upload binary and source altogether here.

In case someone has Windows 8 or 8.1 and the updates enter an infinite loop you must turn off the computer three times and that will do. That is what happened to me.

I finished Level 2, Venice and Brunwald Castle all in one level, like the original Indy Action Game.

I consider it finished. I made the last 2 levels, I hurried up a bit. I don't like to be near the end and having it unfinished. It could be more polished, it needs some sound, or music.
