Oh hi there.
I've been working slowly at this game in C++ using SDL and Box2D.  It's coming along nicely, and I'm at a point now where the core gameplay is down.  Now it's time to tweak the controls, polish off some art and have the level generator work off a difficulty seed.  Also you'll notice the tearing in the screenshots, compliments of Blargg's NTSC libraries.  Music is in the pipe too, with thanks to the guy who was the Audio Director for the fictitious company we made 5 or so years ago to get into E3.


There are hammers.


There is climbing.


Oh boy.

Looking at it now I probably should have quoted you.  When I do another build (inevitable)

EDIT: WOW THIS GAME IS HARD

Having made this game I've gotten pretty good at playing it (I think), but I notice watching people play for the first time that there are some elements of the control that aren't very explicit.  For example, holding up or down when throwing a rope changes the rope trajectory, climbing and slacking the rope while swinging helps build momentum, etc.  I'm not sure how to get this across to the player elegantly.  Suggestions, as usual, are welcome.

Also, how's the speed of the game;  too fast?  Too slow?

It's a decent speed, it's just a quirky method of moving around and such that makes it difficult. Also that is some EVIL momentum you've got going on, haha.

Added an update to the game with about 965 KB of changes.  This should make the game significantly easier and actually somewhat playable.  If you have friends, the 2 player mode is pretty fun.  Read more about it at the head of this thread: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=13422.msg400256#msg400256

There's also SECRETS in this version, which I will leave as an exercise for the the player to find.

Finally, because you guys and girls are special and you deserve it, here's some box art for the game.

I have to admit I almost didn't play more than a minute because of that music loop ... it's not that it's bad per se but it is so short and repetitive that it was kind of driving me insane ....

Then I realized I can just turn the volume off, and played through a mountain.  I'm pretty terrible at it, but the grappling was fun and it was pretty much impossible not to make progress because you seem to reset me above where I fell from, half the time Smiley  I never used the hammer thing.

I like the lo fi look it has -- the way you do the rope as little segments is cute.

Zaph, thanks for your input!  It means a lot to me!  The hammer is really useful on harder maps, where parts of the level are covered in ice blocks.  Also, you getting bumped up a block is usually because you jumped to the same height of that rock but didn't attach to it.  This is intentional.  You have to understand the game used to be really super hard before without this feature.

Important side note!  I noticed earlier today when I was trying to play my game at a computer that isn't my development computer that the game is unplayably fast on computers that are good.  I've updated the version with a clamped time step version, and also added a video about the not-so-secret-anymore area that you may want to call all your friends and tell them about.

Is that the blowing out the cartridge noise at the beginning?

Haha yeah, though I think that may have been accidentally stripped from v2.1.   Shrug
