Inviyya - OCS Shoot Em Up

Since this is becoming more and more a real game, I wanted to leave my dev thread in the factory forum, and present this here...

Inviyya is an R-Type-inspired shmup for vanilla OCS 512K+512kslow Amigas.





Stats:
1 player (maybe second player will be able to play the satellite sidekick, not sure yet), SFX and Music, partially 3-layer-parallax and some transparency effects.

Since it seems at the moment that I will get a table to present this game in Neuss at the Amiga32 in the end of October, I will release a playable demo version of the first level at that time.

Greets,
Michael

I had a look at the videos on you tube and have to say it is very promising. Will probably match quality commercial titles.

Good job dude!
If I may suggest something from the visual side, I think your graphics could use some shading. Maybe work on dithering between color changes and stuff, things like that. I think it looks a bit "rough" as it is because of the colors changing suddenly, in "bands". Maybe it's a palette thing too. Dunno, just minor nitpick I hope you take into consideration when you are done coding and focus on how it all looks together!

Keep up the great work, I am looking forward to play your game, R-Type being one of my favorite game series ever.

@everybody: thanks a lot...

@Whitebird: Yes, 50 fps. Everything. On a real machine with a CRT connected it looks smooth as butter...

@Akira: Well, I guess that comes down to graphical style preferences then. I am not a big fan of dithering, and usually try only using it sparingly.
Regarding the palette, it's only 7 colours for the foreground, since this is running in dual playfield mode. I think I am already making most out of it, but you are off course welcome to come up with something better with only using those few colours...

Greets,
Michael

The colours have some kind of Amstrad CPC tinge.

Hopefully the game will only inherit the style from R-Type, not the technical performance as R-Type even in its second edition is far from excellence when it comes to smooth scrolling... (note the dependency between scrolling's speed and the amount of displayed sprites.)

That's one of the reasons I went for dual playfield.

(mind, that I am still in heavy debugging phase, so there are some graphics bugs to see in that video. Plus that's taken from FS_UAE in debugging mode, so that's looking much more stuttery than on a real machine.)

(yes, I know, they look like flying penisses... )

Only on the Amiga!

Also there were at least 4 other R-Type games after that

Maybe because the developers considered tha Amiga a "CPU-centered" computer as any other computers and completely forgot it has custom chips...

I actually like the non-dithered look.

Dithering made sense in 1990, with our fuzzy 14" CRT's .
Now, with razor-sharp 24" LCD screens not so much....
