"Erodine Means Fertile Soil" new game project

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,
couple days ago I started new game project, my aim is to create a game similar to Invasion of the Zombie monsters on ZX Spectrum. The game engine is more or less ready. What you see is bitmap mode, not the character mode, so there will me bigger variety of shapes, because there is no limit of characters. The fifth colour is achieved with sprites. Hope you enjoy it, and have some remarks and advices,
take care,
Kamil

The running animation looks very good and fluent. Reminds me of the game „Impossible Mission“. The jumping animation is in contrast very static. I feel like a similar fluent animation would greatly improve the visual impression. Overall, the graphics style so far sets the right mood for a zombie game 👍

Hi starfighter and _The Doctor__, thanks for your comments, the jump sequence will be changed, already have animation frames for that, the arm movement is also good advice, so far the game is not very spectacular but I can assure you that it will be more exciting while the development progresses

I love going behind objects and that you dare to move screen and sprite in "char res" :)

thanks popmilo, putting objects in the foreground solves problems with masking, that's a very nice trick used in Zombie ZX Spectrum game, and moving sprites each character also reduces number of frames needed and also decreases the computation time, very smart idea. Meanwhile I'm working on adding enemies, should show playable level on Sunday!

thanks mikesk8, but it would be really hard to fit it into 48kb, the screen memory alone takes up to 12 kilobytes

Not sure if you intended that way

but when game starts the screen shows the drawing from left to right not a big deal, but , if you can shut down antic do your drawing then restore it to see the screen instantly appearing ....

 

well done . Very nice progress !

yes, that's still to do, but I like to see how my program works, it's somehow pleasing :)
Thanks for the kind words and your comment!
