Yes it is a crappy banner… but what are you going to do?
This is the final preview for Spiderhead and this game is 80% complete. This game was formally a tribute to Hayo Van Reek for his Fishhead game series, which some "different views" to certain members not to be named. "Spiderhead" is officially my character which has a storyline at least (not much of a storyline is featured in the first game, which is... this) and it has no relation to Fishhead any more, although Hayo Van Reek will still be credited. By the way Hayo will be releasing Fishhead 4: World Tour as "abandoned" very soon, more likely next week.
The story is still the same as the last preview "The story is about industrial pipes, which have been appearing through fields recently, Spiderhead has been sent to investigate these pipes and who caused it, the story is minor but it builds up throughout the game".
Anyway this game is a action/platformer where you play as Spiderhead, you must battle Eyeheads after Eyeheads through 6 stages with 6 bosses, and if you complete the game you will receive an "extras" page which will contain:
*Full level skip*
*Boss secret data*
*Spiderhead game designs (paper)*
(Big extra)*Secret bunny level*
(Big extra)*Spiderhead game retakes*(comedy)
There will be many Eyehead enemies featuring:
Berserker Eyehead: An Eyehead with two crowbars and a metal mask.
Soldier Eyehead: An Eyehead in heavy armour with a rocket launcher
Armoured Eyehead: An Eyehead cannot be killed and will kill you if collided with. It also moves fast because of gadgets attached to the armour.
This game will use a variety of sound found from the Internet, a couple from certain games and some cartoon noises created by me (don't worry, it sounds fine)
The music previously was ripped from the mod archive, but thanks to Josh Whelchel he will be composing MODS for this game, this will certainly be one of the best parts about the game
This game will use four different kinds of weapons; you will receive a new one at the end of each stage until you have received the last one. The weapons are:
Twin Pistols: First weapon received, not the best of weapons but it will start you off
Shotgun: Effective at first, but not very useful later on throughout the game.
Flamethrower Like the Shotgun, very effective but not very useful later on.
Rocket Launcher The most powerful weapon, slow reload though.
Like I mentioned above, this game will feature 6 stages
The Fields The first stage, this stage will make sure you learn the controls of the game and such
The Factory This is the next stage, which is set inside a weapon factory occupied by Eyeheads.
The Red Cave This is a red cave which contains the natural material "Rydra".
The Barracks You can tell who occupies this
Space Blast Spiderhead in space? It's true.
Space Station The final stage, the final battle with Lord Snowhead (main villain)
I have not started work on the save system, but it will take some time because Spiderhead is delayed because of homework and all. You will receive one save slot which will be saved after each stage, if you die and load the game you will start at the first level of the stage (3 levels + boss per stage, except stage5) so... don't die?
This is a new ability, which I have added (thanks Circy for a part of the idea ) which makes sure you're invincible for a limited time, you will also duplicate yourself and the screen becomes red (see screenshot 3). This is completed in the first 2 levels, but it has to be coded for the rest (Not every screenshot featured has bloodlust)
Also mentioned were the 6 bosses, I am not revealing who they are but they are BLOODY HARD, except for the first so have fun
This game has also been delayed of bugs, I have coded this game well but it may feature some minor bugs, but nothing is perfect and I hope it will not affect your gameplay
Spiderhead doesn't feature too much of a storyline but here is the 3 main characters
Spiderhead: An undercover agent who investigates this "pipeline" problem.
Snowhead: Lord of the Eyeheads, and the master of this plan. He is bloody evil I tell you, except for his corny name, which makes him MORE EVIL.
General: This is an Eyehead born different from the others, different as in advanced. He commands most of the Eyeheads as well as the leadership from Lord Snowhead
Well I hope this game will finish soon, I really REALLY want it done, and all I can say is:
Hate or like Like Marmite, hate it or like it. That's all I can really say to you about how good this game is, I would give it a review of 8/10 personally.
Delayed Spiderhead has been delayed to 2005 because of homework, new features and bugs.
Screenshots Enjoy these 7 screenshots below the "Special Thanks".
Special Thanks Special Thanks to:
Steve (File hosting, upcoming website and letting me join Newklear in the past), Hayo Van Reek (part creation of Spiderhead and the permission for the game) and Josh Whelchel (Creating music for this minor game when he is busy with other projects, also because no one else would make the music, or it would be heavily delayed.
Thanks for looking or somehow reading my preview and lets hope this come out soon
