Major New Update:
I'm re-working this game for flash. It's going to be a scaled down version, yet still (hopefully) retaining all the meaty goodness of my original idea. The reason for this departure from XLIG is because of Greenlight...So basically this new game, "Sole Gunner" is a prototype version of a big final game.
Test the latest public demo 'ere at NG:http://www.newgrounds.com/projects/games/606367/preview
(To collect a weapon, when over the icon, press down to collect. Same goes with health.)
(I'm aware it's an power hungry flash game, so when the final game is completed, I shall be uploading an standalone exe for people with slower computers.)
Those bloody robots are at it again. Trying to take over the world and attempting to destroy all human life. I guess it's up to you to defeat these metal anarchists as everyone else is busy...doing laundry or something.
Full on, action platformer with tons of explosions. Featuring:
4 Levels (each with 3-5 areas.)
Lots and lots of explosions!
Level 1: One of the gems is hidden among this forgotten place. Go find it before the Robots do!
Level 2: The Tower, a sky-high complex that houses a multitude of rockets for the Robots to use against us. Find the gem and destroy this place!
Level 3: Quickly re-claim the crystal that the Robots stole. It should be on this train somewhere!
Level 4: ? ? ? ?
You start out with your normal pistol gun...but I'm sure you'll love to upgrade, right? Well find these weapon icons through the stages and you can!
A more powerful version of your automatic pistol gun!
A rapid firing laser that can go through walls. Sadly it's not overly powerful...
A highly powerful weapon, however you're unable to move when firing this weapon. (Always a catch eh...)
Slow firing, but extremely damaging, this rocket gun could be your best friend!
The king of kings. This weapon is powerful, goes through walls and is rapid firing. Hell yeah!
So that's all the juicy details. I hope people are interested in me little, well tribute to Treasure's old run and gun style of games.
I'm aware it's an power hungry flash game, so when the final game is completed, I shall be uploading an standalone exe for people with slower computers.
I'm aiming for a mid November release.
Hope ye likeths,
Well I'd thought I would post a topic about my new upcoming game for XBLIG, which is called Twin Gunner. It's basically a little homage to Treasure's run-n-gun styled games.
I've been dabbling with making flash games for a wee bit but I've now decided to up the pace and make a bigger and badder game. I'm still learning stuff but I've just finished university so now I've got all the time in the world (until I get a job) to work on my hobby of creating games, and that is why I've decided to create something close to the heart.
It's going to feature retro gameplay, sounds, toons, bosses and action. I've decided to include an local two player mode as well. I was thinking about making it online but I really want to give this game some sort of retro appeal. (Nothing beats playing co-op when ya buddy is in the same room with ye.) I'm aiming for around six/eight levels with at least three boss battles per level.
Anyway 'ere be some screengrabs and an old video. (As you can see, I updated the sprites/HUD).
Anyway I hope you like what you see, I'm aiming for an October launch but we'll see what happens, =)
And if anyone wonders, I was working on this project ages ago but got lost through many HDD crashes. This used to be my old old account until a lost my password and email.
