Sweet, but you know...

...I was thinking about it last night and I might just take a liking to this blood. After all it is 2D and not 3D so this could be really interesting and may just serve to compliment the already perfect (in my opinion) game.

Thats because with savestates i didnt really need those - as for health, when health is full, it wouldnt pick it up of course
But if you dont want to change that, mabye just make the weapons auto pickup, as for those theres no point NOT to pick them up

I've made some changes with this. I'm not liking with the lines/points thing above the guys head, but I've gone half way with you on this one. It's maybe not quiet how you maybe wanted, but it's something that keeps the original game play intact, and won't have people shouting you spoilt my game. The way they work now.......
  • Standing + throwing the grenade works the same as the original.
  • Running then throwing grenade, extends its distance (new).
  • Crouch + Grenade = Rolls grenade at a slow speed. Less bouncing. Used for rolling down stairs or off cliff with enemies below (new).
  • Crouch + Direction + Grenade, same as above, but with greater distance and speed (new).
Yeah the line might destroy the atmosphere, but i was thinking kinda like in Worms to help the player aim - but its better without.
Good changes - but one more thing - when the grenade touches an enemy can you make it instant explode? That way its abit less random compared to the original where it was pure luck

That's already in now, but thinking of removing it. Every time it happens i can not afford the cleaning bill.
Make it an option in the menu?

Hi all,
just to keep you updated.
This last week I've been adding the Achievements page to the game. I drew some little Trophies in D-Paint and been putting them in the secret rooms for you all to find. I counted 16 hidden rooms. Also got some of the other achievements working too, including 'The Killing of that damn Level 6 UFO' for Predseda.
If any one else has an idea on an achievement now is the time to tell.
Added more sound FX, one of which makes the character shout "Arrrrrrrrrh" while he is falling from a great height. It uses a lot of memory so A1200 only. On that topic, what I don't know is; how to get my game to know how much memory the Amiga the game is running on has. There are commands in BlitzBasic2 to tell me what Processor the game is running on but NOT how much memory. So, at this moment in time if you have a A500+ or A600 computer WITH extra memory, sorry to say my game will only use 1 meg of it. A long shot, but if any one would know? please say.

The game is still coming along nicely. When I do finally get it out the door I'm sure you will like . I did say coming soon, but I can not stop tweaking it .

What about a secret ending or sort of?
For example if you manage to find all the Trophies, or/and all the secret rooms, or/and kill the LEvel 6 UFO, and so on...
Something that push you to play the game in every little bit...

I guess Iím not allowed to enter, I would thrash everyoneís scores. .
Could I make a suggestion, maybe delay the start date of this, and then use the NEW version for this compo? Maybe put up another game in the meantime to give me time to finish it?

I don't see any reason why you cant compete, you might be surprised by the competition. In fact i think most people would welcome the opportunity to compete against the games developer!

There is no chance to delay the competition, it has already begun. Unless some significant bug exists perhaps??

You are more than welcome to enter! I think it would be a first in the history of the competition

The timing is a little unfortunate with regards to the development of the new version but we can't delay it as mihcael says. We do have a tight schedule for the league and we have to completely stick to it to avoid messing the whole thing up so not a lot we can do I'm afraid. And people did vote for it to be played so it would be a little unfair on them if we just went and changed it at such short notice.

Excuse me, why not?
If you manage to master entirely the game, if you discover all the secrets, I think it's a good idea to have, if not a different ending, a sort of "easter egg", something that can push you further the usual game.
Or, like other games out there, you can have a "proper" ending only if you finish it with the maximum difficulty, it's just another idea, if you don't like it... oh well, that's fine!

I'm all in for a secret ending, just threw in the typical cliche ending sequence stuff My favourite would be a 'gag reel', where made up funny stories with the hero and the enemies are presented Ah well, maybe in version 3.0?

Haven't played aff yet.. So not sure it would work, but what about a bonus game code which is given at the that end, you enter at the options screen.. Would be a very simple bonus like space invaders... But using aff sprites...

I am not an achievement whore myself, but unlocking achievements would be quote good...

Looks good.. Although Dieing is incorrect and should read Dying

But I would keep dieing there, it is a kind of AFF slang. Few similar typos were in original AFF as well.

Incorrect spelling is not slang, not by any stretch of the imagination!

Still it is not my game and doesn't detract from the gameplay so where is the harm
