79 Horrible secret in crypt of ancient castle—discovered by dweller.

Hey guys, I thought this compo was very interesting, so I decided to whip up some thing... It's very early, and it has an atari 2600 style going for it. Actually, this was my first game, but due to my lack of GM knowledge back then, I couldn't do anything with it, but now I can... Evil The controls are:

The arrow keys to move
Space bar to shoot.
Touch things to interact.

Here's the link:

Nice start! I like the aesthetic, and I'll be interested to see what you can do with this.

Although, I don't like how all of my windows become 320x240 after playing WTF. That's always annoyed me about Game Maker games; even Cactus' do that!

I would just make it a window with full screen, but the pixels would get blurry...  Sad

Yeah, for this game, I really wanted it to be an authentic experience. I'm working with 4 colors for christ's sake!  :D

But really, to make sure I could make this as close to the atari as I could, I actually started playing my dusty old atari 2600! Adventure, Berserk, the classics... Smiley

Yeah :D I think you caught the 2600-ish feel very good.
I hope you'll continue your work on the game.

Thanks! I currently started adding some traps, and maybe I'll try to make a maze... (I'm not good at thinking of mazes) To tell you guys the truth, I'm making this up as I go along! But so far it's turned out great! Smiley

Problem with the download link, I'm afraid; is the file missing?

Oh NO SPOILERS Moi!!! Nah, I'm just kidding. Hey, if anyone on Tigsource actually likes this game, I'm thinking of extending it, but I'll only do it if I get at least 5 posts telling me to do so. I just don't like to feel alone... Sad

So, if anyone wants me to make this game a bit longer than 4 levels, just post that you want it, or else, this game will be lost forever in the dark void of space.  Shocked

I'd play an extended mix. If you'd enjoy the process, do it.
