It is complete. I am not happy about how it turned out (not entirely how I pictured it.. and its slightly buggy), but at least the editor works. I will be working in this game until its the way I would like, but ... in the spirit of the Super Friendship Club
, I had fun and it compiled properly! In the meantime, my goal to be noticed by indiegames.com
will have to be put on pause.
The game is called towers
, and the concept is that you are dropped into a tower, and you are timed in how long it takes for you to escape, simple enough. Each level of the tower consists of small rooms that you have to find the "hole" to drop to the next level. Try to avoid the evil dudes in robes (they will kill you).... and you can shoot fireballs.. square ones (don't ask). I made a default level which is no more than 4 levels. When you finish you are outside the tower and told how long it took you. Thats it.
The editor is very basic. You can make walls, enemies, and doorways (which are holes in the floor). If you try opening a file and then "cancel" it breaks so be careful. I'm working on that. Other than that you can make levels and share them if you would like. I wanted to add different types of enemies, blocks, doors but ... 95% of the work went into the editor. You can make as many floors in the tower as you want, a part of the editor I worked very hard on. Removing levels... well I couldn't get that working in time so that's later.
My goal was for people to be able to make levels to trade and challenge each other, so if you make one and want to share it please do. Post how long it takes you to finish the default level, if you go that far.
Please feel free to share your frustration, gratitude, or anything about the game. This will not win awards, but its my first 3dish game from scratch so its kind of an accomplishment for me. Directions:
To move around, use the normal ASDW Keys. Arrow keys won't work so don't try it. The mouse helps you move around, as well as the mouse button will help you shoot fireballs (square ones, mind you). When you find a hole in the floor, try to fall down it. If you aren't falling move around a bit.. and loose some weight so you will fit through (that was a joke.. another part of the game I'm trying to fix).Download:
PC (VERSION 1.0) - no install neededhttp://jabbyjim.dyndns.biz/download/towers/towers.exeScreenshots:Notes:
version 1.0 - almost no bells and whistles in this one, no music .. almost no sounds... pretty basic and slightly buggy
potential fixes - falling down the hole easier would be nice
- being able to leave the editor without ending the entire game
- different types of walls, etc ..
- editor not crashing if you "cancel" a load/save
- more to come I am sure.. let me know if you see something crazy!
- make time more .. understandable instead of just a jumble of numbers
