Re-release of Sniper (game I made in '99)


I've been trying to transfer all my old a1200 data to my laptop without succes, but in the meantime I did transfer an old lha of a shoot-em-up game i made via floppy.
I made this in '99, so I must've been... twelve years old. I went by the alias of Ropy, and I think I uploaded my shoot-em-up to aminet. Since it's no longer there, I announce the re-release of Sniper!

Coded in AMOS, and never actually "finished", it'll still give you a few minutes of fun. You can shoot and drop mines, killing critters in two different worlds. And I'm LOVING it, seeing my old game work in e-uae.

Description I wrote back then:

Short:      Cartoon-style shooting. Lots of blood and explosions!
Uploader:   snowboard_ropy@yahoo.com
Author:     Ropy (Robert van Engelen)
Type:       game/shoot

This is the 2nd upload, the first didn't work. That's fixed now.
Not yet finished: -2 player mode
                  -Viking world (partially working)
                  -Atomic bomb in jungle world
                  -Real gameplay
I'd like to get some reactions about my little program,
because this is my very first game available for public.
Any ideas are welcome too. Mail to:

Of course the mail doesn't work. ;-) Two videos showing the two worlds:

Viking world (unfinished)

Download lha here:

I must say I'm pretty amazed at what I was able to do back then. :P I especially enjoy the game menu effects, and the fact that the options get saved on disk.

It might interest you to know also that right now I'm working on a new game for the Amiga, this time in Blitz2. It's more of an adventure game, you play a red wizard. Working title: Red Wizard Island. Latest vid [ Show youtube player ], EAB thread here.

All pixels, code & mods of both games made by me. Although I think I stole the sound fx for Sniper from Worms and AB3D. No updates will be done on Sniper, focus is on Red Wizard Island. Hope you have some fun with it. :-) Compiled on an A1200 btw.

Wow... That's great work for 12 years old, I really must start up an AmosPro project, but looking at red wizard island, blitz2 might be the way to go.. I have coded some stuff on the pc version of blitz.

Thanks! Yeah, I'd recommend Blitz. AMOS progs tend to be slow, but it's an easy language. Come to think of it, it was my first coding language.
