Last-Out - A Z-Out Remake

Hi,

After Blazing Wings, this is Last-Out my second project.

Last-Out is a PC remake of Z-Out made with Game Maker.

I have already remade the three first stages and a new version (0.4.2) has just been released three days ago :

- The frame rate of the game is now 60 FPS.
- Level 3 playable.
- 7 crystal-made paralaxes for the background of level 3.
- Press J+K on the title screen to toggle the Amiga difficulty mode.


Enjoy !

Nice one Aligarion Looks really close to the original. Do you plan to include custom levels later? Will give this a closer look when I'm back home

well, those crystals with "bubbles" looked not so awesome after filtering, I think you should use same resolution as in Amiga game but increase framerate

Yeah, I know and I think the next levels won't be filtered at all, only scaled 2x.

The framerate is already 60 FPS... isn't it enough ? I think it is.

more is overkill But you have those people with very special eyes that can see the difference between 60FPS and 100FPS.

Yes, there are SFX, but they are going to be remade by Marco.

That's very good, I got killed on level 1 as its been a while since I played on my laptop (well that's my excuse )

The hard part was finding the link in the wordpress page which comes after "télécharger la" (version béta 0.5.4 de Last-Out) it would be easier to find if the link was in BOLD TEXT for old fogies like myself

Thanks for sharing this with us, its something that I will play with again and again

Wow, I remember play-testing an old version of this many, many years ago, I even suggested you a few changes, and how to make the game run at a better framerate under GameMaker .

Are you still using GameMaker for this? An updated version, I hope?

Huge glitches in sound on my Win10 box - Amiga modules work fine, but the MP3s send the CPU requirements through the roof and end up with very jerky motion.

This is on a 2.7GHz AMD A8 (8GB RAM) btw.
