New Game "Sewer Rat"

(1/3) > >>

Hi all, I've been working on a CPC game, "Sewer Rat", see attached .dsk (run "sewrat). Or here on CPC Live... http://mameemu.com/sewerrat/index.htm

Sorry about crappy graphics and sound, these are not my forte!

I've always wanted to write a CPC game in machine code since I was a kid with a CPC, so have finally fulfilled that ambition!

If anyone finds any bugs, let me know and I will fix. I haven't tested this on a real CPC but presume it will work OK as not doing anything clever. Written entirely using WinAPE, thanks Richard for that awesome piece of software, without which I would probably not have bothered.

Oh yeah, aim of the game is to eat all the cheese whilst avoiding enemies!

That's a neat game! Has a very cozy retro feeling to it. Yes, the sound and graphics could have been better, but it's not bad at all in my opinion. Simple sounds are more retro and nostalgic to me somehow, and I think the use of MODE 1 colors are quite good. I wouldn't change a thing in that game.

Levels seem to be random? When I began a new game, it was other levels. That's a good idea, in order to not get tired of the levels too fast.

We are many who always wanted to write a CPC game in machine code since we were kids. ;) hehe. Congratulations on finishing the project!

These are the sought of games the CPC does best... I've had great fun playing around with Sewer Rats, eating cheese has never been so much fun. And I like the basic graphics and sound, gives it a really nice retro feeling. One issue though, it's a shame there is a slight pause when you pick up the cheese, could this maybe improved. Either way, the game it really addictive.

As said by others before, really nice game, with a real cool retro feeling ;D Even the background story is of the same wacky type as with many other games of the 80's.

It's also pretty addictive. I especially like the animated sprite of the rat sticking its head out on the the title page.

Nice going, amazing how many new games that have surfaced in 09!?

PS. I have announced the game on the front page of the CPCWIKI!

Please change / add some parameters in your html-code:


--- Code: ---<applet name="JEMU" width="768" height="544" code="jemu.ui.JEMU.class" codebase="./">
<param name="DOUBLE" value="true">
--- End code ---

remove line:

--- Code: ---<param name="STATUS" value = "true">
--- End code ---

STATUS is an old parameter, which will be removed in further versions...
