Hi

Had some time to work on the game last week.

I started out by re-thinking the game.
The random level generator was a bit too much randomness at once. I had no way of controlling how the hero was going to progress through the dungeon.

So I stepped back a bit and decided to make a large number of rooms, and then assign them to  10 levels of the dungeon.
So for example from level 1-9 there are 20 different rooms you can get at random.



To get some randomness I have random enemy and random pickup spawns.

I made a gameplay video.

Added two new enemies, they shot at you.



This will be in the next update, I hope.


I did some sketches on enemies and powerup and addons for the hero.



New explosion as well, I really like this one!


And a new door that needs a key to unlock


It would be great to unlock new playable Characters through out the game.
I watched mojam this week and really liked the main character some maybe...

Webplayer http://b-evil.dk/TheDiggingGame/

Webplayer is up again., I'm experiencing some serious input lag in Google Chrome, but for some reason it works fine in Explore and firefox. Let me know how it works for you.

I played in Chrome with no problems.

I really like this game.

-Jumping can be weird. It was not what I was expecting it to be.
-A way of indicating firing rage might be cool.
-You probably already know this, but rats have a collision problem.

I got to level 7 on my second playthrough. There does seem to be good variety in your level generation, so kudos.

Awesome it worked in Chrome, must be my pc that's the problem then.

Yeah I think I'll re-write the jumping, maybe this weekend, need to work on a ladder system as well any way.
Nice idea I'll see what I can come up with, for showing firerange.
The rats suck Sad, but maybe I found a quick fix for it, I'll have it in, in the next update.

Thanks for playing and commenting :D
It all helps to make the game better!

Well, the Cave Story standard of "down to enter doors" is pretty accepted here, you could change jump to W and enter doors to S, making for a rather convenient KB+Mouse option.

I love-hate these kinds of games. The concept and gameplay in these are a kind I really love; but I'm on a netbook with a touchpad that doesn't respond while using keys. And for some reason, every time a cool game like this comes along, mouse-aiming is immediately factored in.

 Hand Any Key Angry Hand Shake Right WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?

Also, I would add either two tiles to your range, or make your gun fire visible projectiles the same way enemies do.

Ok, I'll shift my focus to get the controls right before I go any further with the rest of the game.

The enter door on "S" and jump on "W" seams like a standart Wink I'll do that.

Just for you @baconman (because of your awesome name) I'll try an arrow key shoot option, so you can chose between mouse shooting or key shooting.

Visible projectiles on the shotgun is a good idead as well.

Baconman, a USB mouse is a good investment to go with a laptop - especially with a trackpad like that.

This game continues to impress  Beer!

I second using "W" to jump. There's some dim frustrating feeling I feel whenever I reach over to space with my thumb to jump.

Hi every one.
I made new video showing what's new in 0.3.0.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjzE3lDcS1I

This update has been all about making the game more fun. So some new rules have been added. First, we now have a Heart-cap, this means that you can only carry 5 hearts at the time, until you level up your Heart-cap. You can now level up your weapons to level 3, and add boosts such as Range, Damage and Bullet size.

There is a time limit on the levels, that will start hell-mode if you take too long. I rewritten the jumping so it's easier to control, and some enemies will now charge you. Most of the graphic bits have been redrawn and lightened to make it easier to see where you are going.

Have fun!!


Changelog ALPHA 0.3.0:

Bugfixes:
  • Curser aim improved
    No more than one pet
    More control when jumping straight
    Added features:
    Shake on hit and explosions
    Heart container. 5/5
    One UP extra heart for heart-container
    Volume slider
    New Character animations
    Rewamped Weapons and power-up system
    New tutorial
    Shotgun re-made
    New GUI
    BossFight SHAKE DOWN ladders
    Earth gold blocks!
    Graphic retouch of all dungeons
    TimeLimit on Levels

Tried it out, I got up to level 10 before I got careless and died.  I had kind of gotten bored by that point.  No new gameplay elements or enemies were being introduced and the levels all started to feel kind of the same.  Hopefully you can keep adding stuff to the game and introduce something new every level to keep the player interested.

Also, I really hope you aren't planning to add 99 levels, as it would take forever and I doubt you can keep anyone interested in playing that long .. lol
