New Platform Game - Jigsaw Rescue
« on: 22:43, 30 October 13 »
Story:
Princess Amy was playing around in the abandoned laboratory that exploded in Lab Escape. On the way she had bought a jacket potato for dinner, which she dropped in a puddle of slime. Just as she was about to pick it up, an electric shock caused the potato to come to life. She kept Potato as her pet.

One day not too long afterwards, Potato was trying to do Amy's favourite jigsaw in the garden, when all of a sudden a gust of wind scattered the pieces throughout the castle grounds. Now, you must guide Potato to collect all 30 pieces before Amy arrives home.

Controls: Joystick only.

Download Tape (thanks to the Dinamic utility): * Jigsaw Rescue.csw
Download Disk: * Jigsaw Rescue.dsk


This game is about 95% finished. It is fully completeable, there are just a few minor things missing due to AGD bugs. I will have to re-do the entire thing in the next version so I thought screw it, I'm just gonna release it now as-is, and start a new game from scratch when the new AGD is released. There may be random crashes. I cannot help that. But I have played the game through without it crashing. I will not be working on this any more, and there will not be any fixes. Sorry.

Removed the attachment as the CDT doesnt load... (Perhaps you had a bad WAV-CSW conversation)

Well, I usually record tapes with JavaCPC as WAV.

Then I use the built-in feature: Samp2CDT, what is a GUI for the command line tool "Samp2CDT" :D

I created the csw in CPCE. I dont usually do tapes so I don't know much about it, but I like the pretty colours it makes on the border.

Well, at least the crashes look kind of cool. I was expecting just a boring reset.  :)

How did it happen? I have not seen that crash before. Any info would be useful, maybe Jonathan could use it to fix the bugs.

I think I was jumping out of the screen on the right side (from the top platform). The switch to the next screen happened while I was in mid-air, so I suppose it has something to do with jumping or getting joystick input during screen switching.

Of course the exact way the freeze looks might be emulator-dependent. MESS isn't exactly the most accurate CPC emulator out there, so I suppose the graphics effect might look different in other emulators...
