HailBent DEMO 1.0
Submitted:|| 17th October, 2002
Originally a Games Factory game, it took me a month or two to transfer HailBent to MMF and make it into a full-fledged scroller. This is also my first MMF game.
Guide Hail Bob through this 3 level demo, find keys to open doors, get the magic shovel and show the "Cool Heads" and "Evil Snowy" who's boss!
Collect spinning snowflakes for 1-ups and discover secrets in every level.
At the title screen press any key to bring up the menu, then select keyboard or joypad control.
Keyboard controls -
cursor up arrow = up/shovel up
cursor down = down/shovel down
cursor left = left
cursor right = right
shift key = jump
z = attack
x + up = look up
x + down = look down
Joypad controls -
pad up = up/shovel up
pad down = down/shovel down
pad left = left
pad right = right
fire button 1 = jump
fire button 2 = attack
fire 3 + up = look up
fire 3 + down = look down
When you have the magic shovel hold down the attack button to charge up and then push up, down, left or right and release attack to launch a fireball!
If you get stuck on a puzzle in level 3 press 'ESCAPE' to restart the level.
Note block - these give you hints
Snowflakes - collect 100 for 1-up
Gold - equal to 10 snowflakes
Shovel - attack enemies/break stuff
Shield - collect up to 6
1-UP - collect up to 99 lives
Key - match key color to door
Silver key - collect certain amount
of these to open exit!
Present - who knows what pops out!?
Switch - opens and closes gates
Tech talk -
The enemy AI is limited so far but the "Cool Head" knights will block themselves from your attacks.
Sound effects will probably be improved and in-game music will be added.
The multi-layer parallax scrolling and uneven landscape (hills) are some extra touches I added to create that "Super Nintendo/Arcade" feel.
