After a high-tech experiment on Mars goes awry, all Hell literally breaks loose........ and you're out of ammo. DamN. Guess you'll have to use your brains to solve 20(?) different robo-demon-infested puzzles and defeat the all-powerful boss!

I'm starting a bit late, and I'll have hardly any spare time next week, but what the hell. At worst, it'll be a fun trainwreck.  :D

Basically it's going to be a top-down puzzle adventure whose sprites look suspiciously like those of DooM (not DooM3), and whose gameplay feels suspiciously like the old DOS game Paganitzu. Once the guts are made (in Flash), level design will be open to anyone who's interested.  Gentleman

Updates:
Aug 16: The basics are working!

Aug 17: Teleporters and Goblins and T-shirts oh my! (damnlevmap3.swf)

Sept 1: Blagh! I had no more time to work on this. Just threw some "frills" onto it and made 2 levels... Enjoy!

Sept 7: Okay there's a few more levels now. Smiley

I just rediscovered a tile-based level mapper I'd made in Flash earlier this year and never used for anything. This will give me the headstart I need. Smiley

Oooh. Were you the flash artist that had that Doom marine with a funny voice in some of your cartoons?

And demaking Doom into a puzzle game is hilarious.

That was me! How thoughtful of you for remembering! </marinevoice>

Haha. I didn't actually play DooM all that much, compared to many other games, but it's still a classic.

DaMn thats an awesome title screen, I hope you include some rip-off of the huge rocket launcher wielding bosses in Doom.

Aug 16: The basics are working!
Have fun pushing the barrels around (arrow keys) and collecting coins in this test-level! The story is that you have to gather up quarters to use in the only "gun vending machine" in Hell in order to get a REALLY BIG GUN to shoot the evil big "boss" with. Paganitzu fans may note the arrangement of those three barrels at the start with a certain nostalgia.  Gentleman

Haha. :D I'm actually pretty impressed with how easy that part was to make. Let me know how the speed works for you. I'm making this on an old-ish PC, and I notice that it runs slower in a browser than just in Flashplayer.
Just wait 'til I add monsters etc - then it'll all start getting quite hairy.  Tired

(Note that the graphics will probably be changed to look more pixelly if I have time, although I will make it look VGA, not EGA.)

Pushing the toxic barrel in the lava results in an AWESOME death scene!

Ah right.  I had checked, but hadn't noticed that the two passageways were aligned differently  Roll Eyes

Actually there's a small delay between the barrel hitting the lava and it exploding, so you can run away if you reverse direction quickly. I wasn't going to bother with having this but on second thought it's quite cool. Once I set up explosion-triggered explosions with those barrels, you'll be able to set off wicked chain reactions.  :D

Ah yeah, I had noticed that, but hadn't thought about the potential for puzzle-fun Smiley

Aug 17: Teleporters and Goblins and T-shirts oh my! (damnlevmap3.swf)

Hints:

* To use a teleporter, just try to run into the face of the wall that has the pentagram.

* Beware, not all teleporters have reversible paths!

* Goblins (or Imps) are the same as snakes in Paganitzu. If anything is between them and you, horizontally, they can't get a clear shot. You can't outrun their shots, and getting hit means instant firey death.

* You can push a barrel-o-radiation into the lava and step back one square to avoid the explosion, which only affects the 8 squares immediately surrounding it.

* Any other barrels-o-radiation within this 1-tile blast radius will similarly explode.

* The only thing (thus far) that survives explosions is lava. So don't blow up the coins or the elevator, or you're screwed.  Tongue


Please feel free to give me suggestions, and feedback - especially on the game speed! That's starting to worry me just a tad. Gentleman

Nice work there Sluggy, it's a fully working game!

I can see the years spent writing Q-Basic games have combined with your Flash talents to create another generation of Sluggy created gaming.

Keep up the motivation and you're onto a winner Smiley

DamMit, I won't have time to work on this until next month. I'll wrap it up and throw a few levels together for the competition deadline, and release version 1.1 after this comp is over.  Gentleman

Um, in your level design you kinda neglected to realise that you push the first barrel down a square to explode it, so no actual chain reaction happens... or am I being a little silly here?  Embarrassed

You have to work out how to set up the barrels correctly so that the chain reaction WILL happen.  Wink
