Edited By Spiderhead (Newklear Studios) on 4/2/2004

This game was inspired by the Fishhead games, with permission of Hayo (Fishhead)
Spiderhead is a fan game of Fishhead; this is the remake of the game. This is a short demo for people who would like to see it, counts as a beta.
It has 1 level + 1 boss. The level and boss are special levels for the demo and will not appear in the full game.
Read the readme for the controls of the game.
Special thanks to Hayo Van Reek, Steve and the rest of the Newklear staff.
*Read* There was an INI file bug before that caused a death at the start of the game, this is now fixed with some other bugs. The beta testers and me did not know about this major bug until now.

Have fun playing this game.

Pretty good, this. Although I think the rotated jumping animation is quite lazy...
Posted by Retired Kliker Lazarus 2nd April, 2004

Hmmm...Not bad. The custom movement is pretty good, but like Circy said, the jumping animation is bad.

The music is not bad though, but I guess you didn't create it.. If you did, Nice work.

thats right smeggle-deggle-smeggle-pop!

Jon, the music will be changed in the full version (original). I would use original sound effects IF I could make some.
Posted by Blackgaze 2nd April, 2004

Oh and my other games dont turn out that well either.
Posted by Echisketch(PS) 2nd April, 2004

I make SFX, Im thinking of reposting a link to my SFX archive site there are 3 different gunshot sounds Stay tuned at the links until it pops up... jeje

Very promising for a demo ... havent killed the boss yet though ... maybe Im not concentrating ... or I have something else besides the dual pistols??? Nah, dont seems so. You are right ... the boss music is not original ... its the title tune for "LOTUS III - THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE" a game released for Amiga and Pc in 1992. Recognised the tune right away. Jon, youre right, there IS a Sonic sfx in there :D Anyway ... I would like to see this done ... would be a game Id try out ...

Great demo! I couldnt help but notice the springs from sonic... not only by sound, but by weaker yellow and stronger red! I never sounds use from other games, i just use MMF sounds. Good music! (assuming it is yours)
Posted by ripthor 2nd April, 2004

Argh! Please add joystick support! X( Beside that the game look quite promising! (even though I didnt beat the 1st boss yet...)
Posted by AndyUK 2nd April, 2004

pff sound effects. i dont even bother anymore. My new pc pauses with mmf or tgf games if two sounds are played at the same time. (did anyone notice the sparkster sfx?) This is great though nice and solid unlike most of my efforts :). If i had to critisize in some way i would say that the jump is too fast and high for my liking, and spiderhead would probably get dizzy after spinning so much (although i can think of some characters that spin more than that withouth a problem) on the boss i tried to jump over his bullets but clipped a box on the way up and fell back into the line of fire almost instantly, Which can get anoying as the 'stop dead' in the standard movement.
Posted by pulsecode 2nd April, 2004

Not bad at all. I'm not sure why, but there is a certain appeal to this for me. Good work! As for the music, the Lotus 3 Title tune (by Patrick Phelan) and Activity (by the old Amiga Demoscene musician XTD) seemed totally out of place to me. I guess mainly cause i know them well, and from totally different settings! Sound effects seemed fine to me. The only one i thought seemed totally out of place was the Sonic spring sound, but the rest fitted fine IMO.

Not bad, not bad at all! The only compain is the walking animation...the hands and legs are moving at the wrong direction... and the rotated jumping animation, i think he should bend inside somewhat of a circle.
Posted by Hayo 3rd April, 2004

I don't think we will miss you Atarikee
Posted by Blackgaze 3rd April, 2004

I'm surprised that people knew the music (I didn't know it was official tunes :P, I just thought it was music people made at the mod archive) Most people have complained at the music and sound, all the music will be changed as I said and most of the sound effects will be changed, including the springs. The springs will also have new colours now. Spiderhead's jump animation will not be changed, nor the walking (I know the walking isn't great, but I REALLY hate doing walking animations) Does any1 know a good sound effect program? So I can make my own sound effects then, less bitching ;) * Spiderhead *
Posted by Smeggy 3rd April, 2004

The Game itself is not bad at all, only the current sound effects annoy me. Anyway good luck with the game Spiderhead, I just hope you finish this one. :)

Kool Demo. Everything is working fine. Looking forward to the final tweaked out version. OldSkoolGamer

If he's ot coming back, then there's no need for his comment stinking up the download
Posted by Smeggy 3rd April, 2004

Thats a sound editing program, for music etc.. Not Sfx creation.
Posted by AndyUK 4th April, 2004

i think the walking animation looks funky. Its how all spiderheads animation looks. You can tell its his style.
Posted by Cazra 4th April, 2004

great work even though it's a demo. Is it possible to beat the boss though? No matter how long I fire at him, he doesn't die.
Posted by Alex Scobell 6th April, 2004

Downloading looks good
Posted by Alex Scobell 6th April, 2004

Pretty good engine and nice graphics, but PLEASE change the jumping animation not only does it look bad but its also rushed.
