Games created with Backbone

After our SEUCK game competition ends we will launch a Backbone game design competition - before then I would be interested to know about existing games created with Backbone -

If you have completed a game with Backbone or know of games made with this package can you please provide details in this thread about them and where to download them from.

I will then create a top ten (hopefully there are enough games to make a top ten) similar to the SEUCK list to provide some inspiration before the competition launches.

PM Cammy, I'm sure she used Backbone and had some friends who were designing some games using it... mind you I haven't seen Cammy on EAB for a while... still, worth a go.

I have been playing around with backbone for a few weeks now. Its a bit sluggish at times but has bags of potential. I'm starting work on my game asap

Is th source available? There are tools to convert code from AMOS to Blitz, and from there, it could be optimised for speed which AMOS could never ever hope to achieve.

Thank for the mention. It's called 'Cornelius saves Christmas' by the way.

I had so much fun making this game I intended to create some more using Backbone, but the complete lack of feedback discouraged me. I think I am to blame for this because the first stage is a bit too hard and perhaps people give up on it on first try. It should have been something like 4th or 5th.

Gameplay of Statoscuro (High quality graphics with smooth robot animation and excellent music but all battles are almost face to face because of short view range.): [ Show youtube player ]

Death is on the Way seems to be created by the same programmer who did Charly the Merc.

I will make a longplay of that game too soon.

I think Tuesday is most complicated Backbone game as it's action mixed with adventure.

Indeed. This game is pretty bad.
