A Friendly role play competition where people choose to make games for one of two or a computer to be released on the launch day.
The games have to be made within the Consoles/Computer's limitations which will follow in my next post.
Each game will be reviewed in a mock magazine (I hope you guys can help me with all this) and the final review scores will ultimately affect the success of the three formats.

Everyone is free to choose which format they make their game for.

Awsome!

I'm in for the 8-bit console if you let us at least a month to do it.
As for the magazine, I could try helping with graphics. But no reviewing for me, my english skills aren't develloped enought for that kind of writing.

Flip screen isn't quite the right term for it... (Flip screen actually usually mean that you draw anything that's on the video backbuffer to the screen - something that's irrelevant for click games.)

I don't Click anymore, but I do have some game creation tools I could use to make one of these. Can I still join?

I'll try to keep this topic alive. But really if you guys are interested could you keep posting with something?

Here is an example game i'm working on. It's taking longer than I thought because it's really hard to make nice graphics with double width pixels and such a weird pallete.
This uses the 8-bit console's mode 1. With a mode 0 status panel.

Image
You can pick objects up (by pressing 'Down') and throw them at enemies (Fire 2)

Image
Don't do a Mario on them! slimes hurt!

Image
Uh... you can't actually die yet. Makes it easier to test, lol.

Heh, all three of those screenshots have exactly 15 different colours.

Andy UK: So that' s what you meant by "double width".
I was sure that it had to be stretched in both dimension, which would look like a 160x120 resolution. To late to turnaround

I personally can't think of a console who's graphics were streched only horizontaly, but I haven't seen everything. I'm just curious; Was there really one which did that?
It still kinda feels authentic anyway.

I actually based the graphics on the Amstrad cpc version of Titus the fox. Don't know how many are familiar with the game. But the graphics are very good for the humble ol' Amstrad cpc. The pallete for the '8-bit console' is actually the same as the Amstrad's pallete too and it has it's own double width pixel mode so it's good to look to for inspiration.

Here's what I did so far!
Image

I'm actually putting all my time in the level editor for now(nearly finished), so the graphics are at beta stage.
I wanted to make a 8-bit game at first, but I can't come up to something good with this palette. There's not even a gray, and personally, I need many shades. So this is gonna be for the home computer.

As for the actual game; aside from the frames generating, the player movements is all I've coded, and I haven't really planned on the exact goal of the game. That bird's probably going to be harmless though, with the game play somehow focussing on dodging

"Features"
Level editor:
-Supports background, foreground and actual surfaces
-Tiles rotation and flipping
Platform movement:
-Exact 16 pxls jump
-Slopes climbing

Aha! fantastic stuff.
Yeah the 8 bit palette isn't great, however there is a grey in there. Look at the center of the image i posted.

I'm actually currently working on two games myself, but i thought no one was actually interested since there were very few posts. I guess you guys are just busy working on games
I asked Rikus to make a front page news post for the competiton but ive not had a reply to the dcmail i sent yet...

keep up the good work guys.

Here's some inspiring mockups for the Game boy for you guys to learn from. I was unable to participate cause I hadn't joined at the time. But there is some nice stuff in this challenge.

http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=5016.0

Plus, if you look hard enough there, you'll find plenty of retro style posts to get tips and info from. It's not that hard to get nice looking graphics Andy.

 
All platforming problems can be mostly solved here:

http://www.clickteam.com/mbfiles2/277308-engine.zip
http://www.angelfire.com/games5/psywakd/platform.gam
www.zephni.com

These are very excellent examples by other people and are very informative.

Well, i did mean I found it hard to make good graphics with double pixel width and that specific pallete.
If the guys are pixelation have a forum with those specs I'll find it more useful.

Yeah also it's easy when you have the talent.

Not to be off topic(In case I am) but I think it'd be pretty cool to remake some of our games for different platforms. (Not literally, but with different graphics and the like.)

Say, AndyUK released Buzz the squirrel for the PC. What if he made a Gameboy version? The graphics would be lower in resolution and probably shorter music loops and such. Idk, it just sounded like an interesting idea.

I have a slight problem. When coding it in TGF, it runs at 50fps, and I can't alter it in MMF2 otherwise it screws up the timing. You don't mind if it's 50FPS? (Its the handheld 8bit)

This is a lil' demo of what I've got so far.

http://sonicmayhem8bit.110mb.com/GalaxyGuardiansDemo.zip

It's levels 1 and 4.
The game is for 8bit handheld. The aim of the game is to fight through bosses (guardians). You get a choice of what weapon you want to use at the start of each level. (you can also turn on Pick-Ups in the options menu that gives you weapon pick ups randomly through the stage)You must destroy the guardian to proceed. Just a quick easy game. Not too easy, not to hard.

I like it, it's well made. The boss' life counter does get in the way though. On the second boss i just couldn't see it shooting at me. The first boss did take an awfully long time to kill...
Other than that I can't see anything wrong with it

Yeah, the bullets in the second level have been changed to green now.
First boss took along time? Mmm, perhaps I could cut down the meter to 1000.
The boss life is there because I've got influenced by Gunstar Heroes. Thanks for ye comment.

Btw, Arnold's Adventure is really good. Really does seem totally retro! Defo a keeper on my laptop.

I agree completely. First boss was just tedious, and second one I couldn't see what was going on (at which point I got bored and stopped playing).
You should add a double-size option - that wouldn't be against the rules I don't think, seeing as it's not actually increasing the resolution as such.
Also, why don't you add normal shoot 'em up levels between the bosses? I can't help thinking it would be more fun. But then, personally I *hate* boss battles in any game.

Oh, and I nearly forgot - you need a visual cue to tell the player when the first boss is charging its lasers - I had music playing so I kept getting zapped without warning, until I realized there was a sound effect for it. The same may apply elsewhere, I'm not sure.

Thanks I kinda rushed Arnold's adventure so it's probably as buggy as hell. Then i threw in some of my own lame mods because i can't keep asking Davince to churn out a billion tunes for all sorts of stuff.

Could the counter could be moved up so it's out of the way? or is there a reason why it's a bit further down?

Cheers for the criticism, Sketchy. I've just put the first boss down to 1000 and allow more hits to damage the boss. I could easily put in a visual cue to the laser attack.

However adding in normal level would be difficult, due to the 32 object limit, however I could give it ago. Actually while writing that, I feel like it'll pad out the game more. Considering I've done seven bosses, I could just add in seven levels, and forget the 15 boss structure.

Thanks for the advice.

(The counters down there, just like Gunstar Heroes, although I could just move it up in the top right corner or something.)
(Done the edits to the bosses. Works alot better )

32 visible objects on screen at once.

You can have as many objects as you want, as long as only 32 are seen by the viewer at a time.

Yeah I know RedEchidna just with those type of stages there are more bad-guys and stuff on screen. (Bad Dudes + There bullets + Terrain) However I have made some flying levels, which add more depth to the game.

There isn't a deadline. There doesn't really need to be one at all really.
There's always a few people that spot competitions late and want to get involved but can't due to time constraints.
Just think of it as holding off on the launch dates until the launch lineup is ready.

I don't want to act as an organiser, it's just an idea I had and decided to share. So it's basically still open to suggestions for anything.

You know what? I'd rather start a new one if anything.

Instead of having competing formats to make games for it might be good to just have one format and the best game becomes the game that is bundled with it at launch.

You don't bundle the best game, you bundle a game which looks good, then you send the best game later.
At any rate, I think you should start with Gameboy 3-color monochrome.

You should definitely restart it in a month, but with a deadline this time.
Last time, I kept on delaying my project until I eventually forgot about it.

I always thought this was a great idea for a competition. Andy, I know you don't like too many rules in competitions, but most people like to have a deadline. I also think that making a couple of "template" MMF files would help people get started at the correct window size, etc.

I also don't want to rule myself out as a competitor lol.

I don't see why we can't restart this, although i'm not sure of having multiple formats because people seemed to all choose the same one last time.
