Inviyya - Development Thread (Space Shooter)
 
Hey EAB Folks,

just wanted to keep you a little bit updated on my "learning Amiga ASM by coding" game in future, which goes by the working Title "Inviyya"..

http://i64.tinypic.com/241wowz.png

The whole thing started as a design exercise for myself, I wanted to create a space shooter level with only 8 colours for everything. I think I did a good job, and after implementing I noticed I still have some things were I can have more colours now, playfield 2 and attached sprites for instance..


Stuff already implemented:
* blitting tiles into a level which I created using the Tiled Editor.
* one way Scrolling (uses two screen method, but after learning about the "aminet scrolling trick" I will soon switch over to that method. You can never have enough chipram left...
* Dual playfield mode (still with a static pf2 background, though).
* 16 color attached 48px wide Sprite. Want to "multiplex" that to have more action.

I think it already looks quite nice in motion

My next steps:
* implementing the "scrolling trick method"
* scrolling of the background playfield
* blitting the players ship and enemies into the playfield.
* doing some kind of level progression scripting. what stuff happens at which position, etc.
* Boss fight design

Well, that will keep me busy for the next months, I guess...

Hopefully I can finish this into something playable...

Greets from cold Munich,
Michael

Ha! This thread is now under an observation! :)

Your project looks cool.

Overflow 07 October 2016 05:30

This looks very nice, and gives me a R-Type vibe, which is a compliment btw ;)

I love scrolling shooters.

Ah, there it is... It's exciting to see another new Amiga game appearing on the horizon.

One downside of the dual playfield mode is that backgrounds and enemies share the same 7 colors. But in the current preview, you managed to disguise that more or less. If you manage to add lots of sprites with different colors, then this might help even further.

Also, I see that the background repeats rapidly, so you could change to the 16 color mode and the "R-type-sprite-parallax-background-trick". (but somehow I guess you are already aware of that) :blased

Nevertheless, a very promising preview. I am curious about further updates.

What I really like so far about coding and drawing/designing stuff on the Amiga is, that you can really design things to go hand in hand, if you know its limitations.

It's surprisingly fun to develop for once you understand the basics, which can be a pain in the ass at first.
I get ideas how to do stuff all the time, and want to try new things out.

For somebody who likes both, doing pixel drawing stuff and coding, it's really a dream machine.

I have to admit, I gave up on the idea of a sprite parallax background, and like my new concept with the dual playfields and big fat sprite enemies a lot more now.

Thanks, Lazy Cow.
Means a lot to me coming from you... :)

Paying close attention to this one!

Selur 09 October 2016 00:21

another interesting asm project.
Keep going...

Adrian Browne 09 October 2016 02:59

Hope it works out. So many good new and boxed amiga games about these days, good stuff.

Dual playfield parallax tile blitting works now...

next challenge: blitting and scrollcorrecting the players ship...

Sounds very nice and amigaish..

At the moment I am still in "heavy experimentation phase", though, and haven't even thought about music or sound, and how much CPU and DMA time that will cost me.

Will let you know when I am into that part of the game... :)

greets,
Michael

saimon69 21 October 2016 19:26

i however am trying to infuse new styles on the Amiga Gaming landscape, mostly influenced from japanese console games, movies and indie; did that recently with Bridge Strike and its nice inspiration from Top Gun; have some other stuff in the oven that will be interesting too and hear what i wanted Amiga to sound like :)

Gzegzolka 21 October 2016 23:47

It's really nice to see there is progress in this thread. I would love to play new amiga shump with both great visuals and gameplay.

Let's hope for the best... :D

At the moment I am getting my BOB blitting routines up to par.

Like always, I am shocked that in the very end, you don't get that much stuff to blit to the screen. :D

Plus, I somehow have to think about my "pet peeve bad Amiga port" (imo)which is Pacmania, and how I could do a better version of that... I tried out a few things already and made some graphics.

And forgot also this little thing I am working on.
Has stupid AI, moving, jumps, and one attack already. Needs energy bars, hit sequence, sounds and general game stuff around it. Plus double buffering, the raster is faster than my blitting already. you see that green pole dude vanishing when he is jumping.

OCS rocks.
