Hi guys.

I want to share the first demo rom of my newest project for 2600.

It's (for now) called Slide and its mechanics is pressty simple: slide through the room, avoid obstacles, activate some switches and exit the room.

The current rom includes only 14 screens, but the engine is pretty much completed, so it is totally playable.

 

You just have to use the stick to slide. Pressing the button PAUSE/UNPAUSE the game

 

Testing and feedback will be appreciated.

This is diabolical. I felt proud for having cleared 4 levels.  🙂

I've managed 340 for a score so far. Only bug I've seen and it could be an emulation thing. Sometimes just when I get to the exit, I will see the CLEAR for a frame or 2 where the exist is before it is shown in the middle of the screen. Otherwise like all your other games, this is damn addictive stuff!

Thanks for testing.

I think I know why that bug happens, I will add an extra drawscreen between the moment you exit the room and the CLEAR sprites are defined and that should correct it.

Impressive! I like the action-infused tilt-maze mechanics.

 

The only suggestion I'd make is to eventually include a difficulty level choice, which would relax the timer.

I have plans to add difficulty levels. I am testing different settings to avoid to make the easy level too easy.

Man, I can't believe we had the same idea in the mechanics of our games! LOL! 😄 😅


This is the "K-Jo in: Chasing the cheese" that is about to be released here in Brazil. I've been working on it since September and is currently in the "Release Candidate 01" version.

 

I will make a topic of it soon.

Great idea to combine puzzling with some action.

This is a blast!

 

This is my current high score on the latest build on norm difficulty. I've not tried easy as normal was what you started with. But this looks to be as high as I can get currently as I've scored this 3x in a row now. So...lets see those high marks!

It is a lot of fun and I think there are more ways to shave even more time on some of the screens but haven't been daring enough to try hehe.

Can't pass the 576 mark. Being beat again in my own game is kinda cool in certain way, right? right?!

That new last room was a right bear to figure out! Really liking the changes made. As usual Vlad... another hit on your hands.

I tried all versions in the real console, and it is hard. There are some places where you have to be precise. To be able to reach the end, I need a way to recover lives, at least one per screen.

 

Req: I found no way to return to the difficulty menu (select switch?).

 

Bug: when entering some screens or leaving the pause mode, some objects with non-symetrical horizontal bitmaps are shown in the mirrored shape, at least for one frame.

Thanks for testing.

 

- This game is a hard, but it's fair. Recover one life per screen would make it too easy for my standards so is not an option.

- I will implement select to return to Select screen, that was always in the plans, just forget to add it 😛

- I have not noticed that bug, thanks for let me know about it. Fortunately I think is pretty easy to correct.
