Hi, I am working on a mini-metroidvania with C64 graphics:


some mockups...

     
animation tests: descending, climbing, digging, sliding




(teaser video)

More about Pharaohs Return in the web:
- devlog homepage (lazycow)
- graphics genesis (pixelation)
- will there be a C64 version? (lemon64)

'hope you like it!

Ha, seems like you like it! I wasn't sure if the C64 graphics could still gather some attention. Most of the player movement in the gameplay prototype seems to work now. Time to slide the project gauge to 10%!


I have added some break-animation when the player stops. There's some inertia there that pushes him a few pixels ahead on a stop. This is annoying on edges, as he constantly falls down, so what about an auto-break on edges? (there's no autobreak if you continue to press your joypad)


Jumping: jumps immediately, but there's some friction again while landing. Ok, you might already know the hat! I am not sure if I should enter this sequence anytime you press down to slither or only if you barely manage to slide under a block. Also, I would like to add some more "hat"-actions, but I am out of ideas. Anything? Someone on tigirc made the suggestion, that you actually play the hat instead of the guy. (it's seducing... but... no)

@happymonster: Yes, some statues and hieroglyphics should be there. Good point!

Looks really cool.

Since you're doing the hat coming off in some animations, may as well apply it to the jump falling anim?

Hm... And then the hero continues without hat?


Ah, I forgot: the monsters!

Hmm, multicolor sprites with hires overlay. You weren't joking about using c64 graphics, eh? Wink

Very nice, can't wait to see some further development.

the title picture

@jonarkanix: Yes, I mean "real" C64 graphics...  Wink I am also planing to emulate a CRT monitor with some shader code. So if you like hires sprite overlays, here's another one: The logo in the title picture features blue hires sprites over some multicolor background blocks.

Unfortunately, this high color density with sprite overlays is not possible in the playfield, because the C64 can only display 8 sprites in a row and I need the sprites for the gameplay action...
