@Tuna. Thanks it does have a crazy Gauntlet feel now that you mention it. music has been added to the final version and it mixes between two songs depending on the amount of action. It's a not perfect. but hey.

@Ugotsta. Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like the mouse aim. i'm still on the fence myself about it. I think ultimately I would like to have both mouse aim and all keyboard/controller as options. And as browsers keep updating support it should be easy to add.

Can't really ask for better then that. Thank you Sir!
Sadly I had to take out the starfighter room for the final entry . I needed the events for the final boss. It will return better then ever "and less annoying to find" if a few weeks. Plus other new secret rooms. If anyone has suggestions for room parodies they would like to see I'm all ears.

@BoB Thulfram If you tried the last demo. try the final entry the difficulty was tweaked a lot, As I wanted people to enjoy the story and see the end . Everyone has to check out the final boss! Please :angel:

@So fist. we talked in IRC about this. Also thanks for the suggestions and feedback you gave. I highly suggest everyone join the IRC channel and I have gotten loads of input and feedback that way.

@valkyriegames. Glad you like the music. That was one of the harder parts for me to do. I was looking to have a decent juxtaposition. and funny enough all the feedback on it has been just as polarizing. some love it some hate it. one of my friends who helped me test it liked my game until I added the music. :biggrin: I'll let him know someone who made a music based entry liked what I did, that should help me with the debate . Thanks! Also I'm not sure if I should spoil the plot and answer the question. it's getting explored in the bigger game

@Joannasalfa Zelda is an inspiration also rototron you nailed it. Zelda sendup/inspirational is how I can trick my wife to try out my game. Robotron and smashTV is how I pretend i'm cool. Thanks for the feedback about the odd fireball animation while standing. Your right. Warren only has two animations walking and standing. Triggered on movement I plan on adding more but for the contest had to limit it.

Finally got back to play the game past the demo stages...

That music was probably the most appropriately absurd inclusion I've seen in a game in quite some time. I *still* don't know if I like it. I think I do, I want to, but it's so zany that it doesn't seem possible. I guess I'm to thank you for that, but it seems wrong. Just awesome.

I really like your game onzephyr :) Iv been following your games development since the beginning, and it turned out great. Are you going to continue developing it after the contest? I really think you should then you could add more animations to it :D It is a lot of fun to play, and very well made, and like CrayFlail said the music was perfect for this game :D

Good luck with the contest :)

@Crayflail I'm getting a lot of these mixed feeling about the music in feedback. Some like it some don't. I do like "appropriately absurd" as a description for the combination of game and music. So I guess I should thank you for the phrase :thumb: I hope it grows on you, in a good way.

@Wink. Thanks for following the game. Glad you found it playable. Curious to what you thought of the difficulty, as your game "good game by the way" slants toward the more difficult. Also yes I plan on continuing with the game. I am taking this week off from the game. But after that i'll be back, well until ludum dare then i'll be a traumatized. But after that I promise i'll be back working all I can with warren to help the poor guy figure out what's going on.

@Venetia. It is insane. This next one will be my 4th time entering. I've never succeeded, Well I've submitted but trust me, nobody would call my entries a game. But the stuff some people can pull off is mind blowing. I highly recommend people check it out, and join in if they can. It's such a fun wild ride, regardless of if you finish or not.

Isn't Ludum Dare the thing that notch entered when he made Minicraft? I love playing that game on my phone :biggrin:

Well onzephyr since you asked I wasn't going to say anything about the difficulty because at first when I realest my entry no one commented for a while so I though oh-no it sucks. Then Tuna commented, and thanked me for the ending so then I thought ok maybe it doesn't suck. Well after that people started mentioning how hard it was. I even got 2 PM's in my Scirra account asking me how to make it past the first level. lol So then I started worrying that I made it to hard to finish.

But to answer your question your game is really easy at first until you get to the fifth level then I am so happy that you put a pause function in your game like I did in mine because it gets insanely difficult :D lol I literally got a cramp in my mouse hand. lol But I like games like that it makes me determined to try harder :) That's probably one of my favorite parts of your game so far :D I just haven't been able to get past that level yet, I think it's just because I played to many games in a row before yours. But I will keep trying :)

So I was going to DL, and open your .capx to see how far I have to go to get to the final boss but I got this error when I tried to open it:

Image

ludum dare, I don't know if I could make a decent enough game in 72 hours not to mention staying awake for that long. lol Good luck though with that!

@ wink.
You're most of the way to the boss. if you got to the mini boss "moving large turret" your about 2 rooms away. Also it has bonus rooms/paths but you don't have to clear everything to get to the boss. Also exit the bar "first room" and snag the extra booze and free ice staff in the two secrets room at the start of the game. if you have not already. besides spoof rooms are awesome!
Also thanks for the feedback on difficulty. my goal is to have it ramp up , while teaching game play. it's not perfect yet, but that is my goal.

Oops sorry I should update my original post and make note of the plugins people will need to open my .Capx. Can I update my original post now? I'm not sure.
Anyway If you wish to open my .CAPX you will need these two free plugins/Behaviors by RexRainbow
[Behavior] 8directionMP, platformMP
and
[Behavior] Zigzag


And Please Please check out the .Capx I'd love to hear what you "and anyone else" think , if you have any suggestions on how I can do things better. or even if you just want to laugh at my bizarre habit of talking to myself in my comments. I posted it because I'm a big fan of sharing and learning, I can't count how much I learn from others willing to share so I figure when I can I should do the same.

Thank's onzephyr :) That's good to know I'm that close. Iv been missing the extra booze, and free ice staff I will get it now :D

I was missing the platformMP plugin. It's funny C2 didn't let me know it usually tells you what plugins you need for a .capx.

Now that I know I'm so close I want to try to beat the game before I look at your .capx. But I will check it out after I finish your game, and give you some feedback :) I'm also a big fan of sharing, and learning. I forgot to thank you earlier for sharing your .capx. You got a real good game here, and I think your .capx will help a lot of people learn quite a few new things. So thanks for sharing :)

@Wink. NP beat the boss and let me know what you think, about the boss or the .capx.

@Jason. yup minecraft least in spirit started at a ludum dare. Notch also is always part of the fun. last two he would live stream what he did. I think at the last one he made a 2d minecraft as his entry "I know big stretch for him" but it's pretty cool. Lots of other fun games started at the ludum dare then went on to a popular full release. I'd bet you and Tuna could pull off a pretty cool entry , this contest is proof of that.

And besides how much fun would it be for the HBGames community to have a presence "maybe they already do". Especially with the new arcade up and going. I've been reading back through some of the completed and in progress sections. I'm thinking a good number of people here could pull off a ludum dare just fine.

Lol, "God dam you just died you drunkin bastard"

Image

OMG that was hard! I just spent the last two days dieing but I finally beat him :D He is huge almost half the room size, and he is constantly spawning waves of spiders, and those blue bug things. Don't even think of going for any coins here it will just get you killed. Just when you start to think your almost done, nope. You got to shoot him like 10,000 times to kill him. But just finishing your game was a rewarding experience :D

Your game was a fun yet very challenging game :D I thought mine was difficult. lol

I also had a little time to go through your .capx. "horrible way to do this, saves events. must set lockout to never open as of stage one. "recharged. " post contest. fix this evil" lol Hey, it works :) I like your way you did some things, very creative. I think the next contest I enter I might try some of your event techniques. You seem to have accomplished quite a bit this way.

Nice job!

@Wink Well Played Sir. Well played.
Image

I had to be a little creative with my events to keep it under the limit. I did have a few left over and I know of at least 3 I could condense. But by the time the last day came I was just in rush mode. Much like the comment you found, I had to do some cheap tricks to make it work. if any of that crazy mess is useful to someone. All the better. I'm still trying to beat your game. it's got good balance. I'm just awful at platformers. If there is anything I can do to help you let me know. You have played and given so much good feedback i'm in your debt.

Thank you for sharing your project file. Although it's pretty code-riffic, it'll definitely help aspiring construct 2 designers dive into it and help them with their own projects.

I created an account just to thank you!

@ Cpryd001. thank you sir. My file is a mess, but that's all part of the fun. I'll gladly try to help make sense of it if you run into any "huh?", type of moments.

@ wishy. Kind words, thank you.

Hey I played this yesterday, not really my kind of game (I was rather crap at it) but it was very professionally done. Congrats on the win.

You're asking for something pretty specific and it has only been two days. Patience.
