By the way, this game is still in production, but its undergoing major changes, mainly due to everyone saying that its a rip off of the underside. And yeah the gameplay kinda was, but the ideas and graphics and story and pretty much everything else was totaly origional. Anyway so this is a link for the majority of the graphics i made for it, it includes some paralax backgrounds, objects, the player, enemys, faces for npc's, and quite alot of other interesting things. Anyway i have to get back to work on AOP, its taking up most of my life lol.
Heres the zip, let me know what you think!?
I just noticed this again since Nastyman bumped it. I checked out the graphics and they're very good. Don't be discouraged by people saying it's a rip-off. If it's a true 100% rip then fair enough, but you said that your ideas and story are different. I think it's unfair on yourself to give up on your ideas so keep working on it if you're still motivated.
Yeah you will often get a lot of tactless comments like that. I sometimes get the odd comment saying my games are rip offs of something. I knowingly take inspriration from games so I know what my game is.
Yeah my game has a jump mechanic in it so it's a Pitfall rip off.
Yeah, don't worry about people saying it's unoriginal - the genre has been done to death already - I can't think of a really original 2d platformer made in about the last 10 years. Unoriginal games can still be fun though.
I don't know about you, but I make game rip-offs all the time. All of my games are electronic just like pong and all those other electronic games. I know I should try to be original and make something out of a paper board with real pieces and such. Oh wait.
