This is an homage to the old Spy vs Spy game that my friends and I used to play when we were kids.
I'll share a more polished multiplayer online demo in a few weeks, but due to some requests to try out the game, I've tossed this together for ya...
This will be a mulitplayer skirmish game, where you may be one of four Spy types - Black, White, Gray or Mech. Each will have their own Embassy or home base, a house, and multiple areas in which to try to eliminate their enemies. It's a combo of old and new, it should appeal to the retro gamers that have played the old Spy vs Spy games as well as the younger folk that like to run around killin' each other ...
This first download demos the basic stuff.
-Character selection. (white spy only)
-Basic level objects
-Reactive weather (with pitiful "thunder" sound effect)
-Ability to "search" objects (press up while on object)
-"power-ups" (heh, hafta draw better ones)
-classic cheesy "Spy vs Spy" music and midis
- ability to enter/leave buildings
Things I'm working on/
- multiplayer (mostly done)
- traps (oh, those are fun! SPLAT! BOOOM! SQUASSSSSSSSsssssssSHHHHH!)
some of them are pretty funny, a few are a bit EXTREME...
- more levels
- graphics and sounds
What to do:
Then, download the two files to your desktop, or any folder on yer computer. (just make sure both files live in the same spot)
Double-click the .exe to run the game.
It's pretty straight-forward.
-I'll make it so you can select your spy without having to use the mouse...for now, just click on "white spy".
- if you get the Spring-boots, you can see other parts of the level when ya jump high enough...
- you can pick up more then one umbrella at a time...oops! (Hafta stick a rule in there to make that NOT happen... )
-sometimes, ya can't drop yer umbrella
-I think I should to change the jump key to a separate key, rather then the "up + left or right arrow"
- I'll add a "mute music" checkbox (for those who detest the music)
In the finished game, you will normally be slower (thus making the power-ups more enticing)
As always, I appreciate yer comments! Thanks in advance for trying this out!
wanna become a beta tester/help me create some of my games?
