***** NEW UPDATED VERSION *****
Right, I think this is the finalised version of Level One and I'm ready to start making Level Two now. This is highly improved, a bunch of bugs have been fixed and a few new features have been added and the presentation polished.
# Player Shadow directions bug - shadow now synched with player's animation
# Monsters no longer show through walls
# Player can't shoot through walls anymore
# Strafe Button allows you to lock on current direction (CTRL)
# Monsters have fierce jumping attack
# Flamethrower collectable on first level
# Game Over message/menu on player death
# Some new sound effects
# Music On/Off option
# Sprites to show remaining barrels
# A skeleton dude
# Some extra polish
The game stars Barry Kippel, and this week has been bad for him. He's fought monsters on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and he thought he'd seen the last of them until he finds out a nest has been found in a cave in Wigan, and it's up to Barry to take it out.
Barry must infiltrate the monster's lair and plant drums of explosives everywhere where there is a nest entrance hole, then set bombs on the drums, get the hell out of there and blow the base up.
ARROWS - Walk
SHIFT - Shoot
CTRL - Hold to Strafe
CTRL - (Near drum) Hold to arm bomb
NUMBERS - Weapon select
¬ - Rifle: slow firing and weak (200 bullets)
1 - Machinegun: rapid fire and weak (200 bullets)
2 - Shotgun: slow firing but strong (25 shells)
3 - Flamethrower: collectable only, short range stream of fire (200 fuel)
The flamethrower is hidden somewhere in the cave.
There are 8 other weapons available if you use the cheat mode, which is activated by pressing the asterisk key (*). At least try to finish the level without cheating though, okay?
4 - Shocker: Emits a short range beam of electricity
5 - Napalm Cannon: Ball of fire that ignites on impact
6 - Bazooka: Fires a rocket which explodes on impact
7 - Grenade Launcher: A short range bomb which explodes after 3 seconds
8 - Shrapnel Gun: Shoots chips of lead which ricochet off surfaces
9 - Frag Cannon: A ball of lead which fragments on impact
0 - Laser: Obliterates monsters in one shot
- - PlasmaBomb: Explodes into electricity on impact
# 12 weapons (35 in the full game)
# Some nice special effects
# Comedy gory death animations
# 3D rendered graphics
As ever, this is a bloody game, so it's not recommended for wussie little girly fairies, and I think I may have also squeezed some bad language in there too.
The music ingame is kinda placeholding for the real music which was made by one of my (musically talented) mates. Some of the graphics are also going to be replaced / improved in the full game, and the large download size is not destined to be a lot bigger as new levels are added because all the important stuff is kept global.
Also, you'll need an above average PC to run this game, especially with all the effects going off, but you can turn them off.
Download it now. Also, I'm not sorry about the big file size, get broadband you cheapass.
