New Game: A Prelude To Chaos CPC
« on: 20:55, 22 March 16 »
At long last, I am ready to release my new game.

It's based on the ZX Spectrum game I did with the same title, however its is much bigger and more complex. Its basically what I wanted that version to be but couldn't due to limitations on AGD.

Its an adventure/shooter/collecting game with a few puzzles to solve.

UPDATED Grab it here: version 1.1 https://app.box.com/s/b8pvbnkl6o2c6otm8edqzbm8hrtsrht6

There are now 40 collectable jewels so the game is finishable. You may find yourself ending up with 41 if you are lucky. I also fixed a room which should have had a lock, so that "spare" key now has a use.

Screens:



I would also like to thank everyone who helped me playtest and debug the game, epecially @SRS and @SuTeKH/Epyteor

Great!  :)

I am really pleased you finished it. It was worth it!  :)

I love the intro and the presentation. Really slick.

I haven't played it much yet..

Now go enjoy a break and I look forward to the next one when you have recovered  :)

Hey, it's great !


I played it for half an hour, killed the first boss, then I admit I got stuck (in the dungeon with the 4 flames and the rooms that bring you back to the beginning). Too bad there is no save game!
The gfxs are very nice, the animation a bit rough but the gameplay is fine. I was especially impressed by the "level up" that increases your skills. The monsters are also surprisingly tricky to kill.


I found some bugs, but nothing that prevented me from playing (however, moving the character in diagonal to the top right corner of any object will erase a few bytes!).


Great job!

Thanks.

I'm aware of the graphical glitches but you will just have to put up with them as there was not enough memory to use masked sprites. There should be no bugs that prevent you playing and completing the game though as I had play testers who have completed it.

[spoiler]Opposite way around, you need the torch to see in the dark dungeon that contains the first weapon :)[/spoiler]

I'm glad it's finally released. Now I have something to keep me busy during the Easter long weekend!!
