Chibi Akuma(s) - Coming 31st Dec 2016
« on: 13:04, 17 December 16 »
Game is now released! Please see:
http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/games/chibi-akuma%28s%29-out-now!/

Get it from:
http://www.chibiakumas.com/download/

Can I take this opportunity to announce my upcoming CPC game?

I've mentioned that I've been working on something on here from time to time - and have received a lot of help from people on here, but I am finally at a stage where I am happy that it is developed enough to show - and that I will actually ever finish it!

So I humbly present to you...

Chibi Akuma(s) - A Spoof-Horror firepower crazy shooter!

The game play is heavily inspired by Death Smiles, and I tried to give the game a more cartoon style like Cotton - be warned though, the humor is much darker (and stranger!) than Cotton.

It has two direction (Two firebutton) shooting like Deathsmiles, you also have Smartbombs and Drones - the player move speed is slower when holding fire (it has autofire) allowing you to weave around the bullet waves - Drones also move closer to the player when holding fire - so you can target your firepower

The game has 4 unique levels, with different enemies and style, and a different 'level boss' battle... I added a few extra tricks to the code with each level - so each level has something quite new!

The graphics are '4 color' Mode 1 with CPC plus sprites. The game engine allows 255 enemy bullets onscreen - so the action is pretty crazy

You can view the website at : http://www.chibiakumas.com/

The game will be free, and I will release the source code once it is done - I expect the game to be finished by new year.

I made an Animated Gif of the first boss battle below:

Looks very nice. Looking forwards to watching gameplay on real machine.


Quoting from another message, my thinking is exactly:
Looks like producing games is something like the new way of democoding.
Crazy times, incredible year with so many new games.
Kudos to all of you guys! It does really seem that CPC scene is alive as ever.

Oh my! That is looking very nice indeed. As I said before, we can't have too many bullet hells on the CPC :)
As a sidenote, I assume the hit zone is just a dot, not the full sprite? Is it the red dot I see, where the heart would be?
Also does the game have crazy bullet patterns (is this even possible on the CPC?)? I just love beautiful looking walls of bullets. I still have that picture of the first Mars Matrix boss pattern on level one (difficult to explain, but I loved it and it was very striking).
Cheers,

Loic

Crazy! Sometimes I wonder where guys like you come from. Completely out of nothing. Seems to be a great place...

@Overflow

Nevertheless I hope there will be another demo-release from you one day. :-)

can it run on a standard CGA XT ?
 :P

I soemwhat feel like using Mode1 properly (or mixing it) can actually be quite a nice challenge on CPC.
