By Plaid Notion

Current update: Look at the bottom of this post for the final competition version...
Oh, and scroll down for some old screenies.  I'll add the new ones shortly.

Unfortunately we only had time to finish one level, but trust me.  It's fun.  Arcade mode was tweaked for ease and the tutorial was revamped.  Also a lot of new, nice graphical touches were added.

I suggest highly that you do the tutorial.  Also give both play modes a try.

Yes, but just as with Flash entries though, you'll need to provide it as a standalone.  Then write your launch script to use the applet viewer.  This is, of course, to keep the submitted version the final one.

There is an official entry to the contest, submitted by the deadline.  That should not be updated, of course.  That's why contest versions are standalone and not played over the 'net.

Re: Jellyf15h and Dark Logic Shmup- BETA 1

as an addendum, I highly suggest you read the help file.  and try to get 10,000 points so you can fight the boss >: D

And the options are, of course, the floating diamonds, which have 3 modes you can switch between with the A key: emergency defense, attack, and recharge player energy.

I like. However, perhaps more variation is need in the environment and it's kinda hard telling where I am y-wise. Perhaps, a little bar showing your elevation is needed.

This is pretty fun, and the hand drawn style sprites are looking great (looks better in the game than in the screenshot). I liked the way the options behaved, and the difficulty seemed good. Nice job so far, keep it up Smiley.

Won't run on Vista, here.  I'll try later on at home.

edit: it runs, just can't grab the display.  Had to kill some processes.  Must be a known Vista issue.

Re: Jellyf15h and Dark Logic Shmup- wAive BETA 1

the2bears: Game Maker games made on the 6.0 platform are compressed in a way that Vista can't display it, so we have to make an executable on the 7.0 one.

Not sure I like the way the ship moves, it's just too... limited, but that might only appear so to me. Graphics are nice (I like the water), the options and absorption are interesting, boss is great. Keep up the work.

I see.  The lack of ability to move relative to the enemies...  It's because they target points relative to the player.  Perhaps I'll fix that.

Re: Jellyf15h and Dark Logic Shmup- wAive BETA 1

I liked it, but it felt very different from what I've come to think of as a "regular" shoot em up. I liked the grapics, and the programming was really impressive at parts. Some of the sound effects were not so good, though. When enemies explode the graphics look "Kaboom!", but the sound effect said "Ksplrfrf", and not even with an exclamation point  sad2

The energy sucking was really nice idea. Although I usually prefer games where one hit kills, but that wouldn't really work in this game...

Can the boss be killed in the demo? It's got an empty lifebar so I don't know if the hit point mechanism is in place...

The lifebar is not empty, it decreases in length as you attack it. Dunno about killing it though, I sorta exited out after a bit.

Re: Jellyf15h and Dark Logic Shmup- wAive BETA 1

This game is great so far, but you need to have better-defined motion parameters.  I couldn't really move very fast or very far, and if I held the absorb button(c) down, I couldn't die.  The game basically felt like it was playing itelf.

I had already planned to loosen up the player's ability to move relative to enemies and get rid of the absorption exploit.  I've been hearing a few of these comments in different places, but thanks for the feedback.  It helps a lot.

Lots of potential here. I liked the water effects and the fast pace, but I have a couple of suggestions.

The controls felt unresponsive. I could press Z and nothing happened. It seems like you have to hold it down to shoot, this is a bit annoying. The secondary weapon takes a long time to start firing - again this feels unresponsive. Finally, when you're underwater it's very hard to see enemy bullets.

Re: Jellyf15h and Dark Logic Shmup- wAive BETA 1

I've:

-made the character move independent of the view and enemies
-changed the absorption mechanism to a bullet thing
-added a simple-to-use aiming system
-made the satellites' defend mode worth a crap
-added energy powerups dropped by enemies (which may replace absorption completely)
-massively increased the character's firepower to counterbalance a change in difficulty (*)
-fixed stuff so future coding of EG dynamic view properties and new enemies would work nicer
-added a cool new death animation
-added Tekno's islands [The water is due to be redone]
-*made it so enemies don't shoot each other, and you don't shoot satellites
-changed the menu
-changed water graphics
-added radar
-tweaked other stuff

Demo 5 soon!  ^_^

Also the music is coming along very nicely. Only about 3 more tracks and it's all finished.

The SFX are taken care of too.
