Retro II is a top down shooting game where you have to accomplish various missions to complete the level.

Do not compare this with Retro 1 because it was my very first click game EVER.

The story is not included, but you can read it on the Retro II project archive.

Just to tell you. You do play as a human. You are fighting against an evil robot named Retro (not in the demo)
he looks like a black robot with red eyes. The one with the gold and black eyes is Retro's Second in command General Skull.
The ones with the gold and red eyes are the basic solider.
Part of the Xerox army (not printer company lol) is the main character Carl with silver and blue eyes,Jared carl's friend with silver and green eyes,sargent Astro with silver and red eyes, and the normal soliders with silver and yellow eyes.

There is one other who's not in any of Retro or Xerox armies
who you don't see in the game that often. Her name is lora (not in demo).

All except lora can be seen on the title screen.


Arrows = move

CONTROL = shoot

SHIFT = advance in speech

SPACEBAR = action (interact)

I hope you enjoy the first level of retro II in the demo.

say what now? what is this?
don't compare to retro I? what IS retro I?

ok i won't, but it still sucked. its just too bland.
poor enemy AI that just seem to follow your x and y position and always shoot directly at you. poor graphics. poor dialogue. pistol ammo never decreases? what? i didnt even know what i was supposed to do besides try not to get hit. even though i dont think a single enemy bullet missed me and i stayed alive for well over 3 minutes.

sorry bud. i like the room escapes better.

Well it has the fundamentals that a game needs:-
Player, enemies, health kits and bosses, its nice to see you are working on a story.
But story alone won't get you far when the gameplay is completely un-enjoyable.

When making a game, make one that you want to play and think others would enjoy. Don't make a game for the sake of it.

Alittle advice, i'd remove the mp3 music files, for a game so short these do make the file size alot bigger and less people are likely to download.

Not bad.

I'd say it would be nice if the game was a little better balanced though.

The normal enemies do no damage to you and the boss takes incredibly huge chunks of life away from you. Also its impossible to avoid his random bounces... which us quite a pain.

Also i think it's a bit slow. Bullets and Movement.

You. need. to. never. scale. pixel. graphics. when. the. pixels. are. not. all. even. size.

Can not stress this enough!

DONTCHOO SCALE BY 1.54! DON'T SCALE BY 5.23. SCALE BY 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

With that said, the game itself was alright. No better. Way better than my second game anyway.

But uh... Retro II "comming" soon?

Pistol doesnt deacrease. duh. it would be dumb to fight a boss with no ammo.

fish if you keep being immature about stuff like this you won't get any better. dont go and vote someone elses stuff out of spite just because you don't like what someone else has to say. especially if you most likely didnt even download it, and then not constitute the reason for the poor vote.

take what i said and use it. improve the gameplay, ai, graphics, dialogue, bugs, etc.

it wasnt even at the boss, it was at the very beggining. it NEVER decreased. it stayed at 999. (which is obviously way too much anyways).

work on your game mechanics and make retro III. and make it good. but if it isnt. DONT be immature about it.

cec┐l's right, with both what he says and that the ammo never decreased.
I'd scrap the whole ammo idea compeletly until you can collect ammo.

If you really are 10, then I'm pretty impressed...more by the dialogue/plot and adherence to the game "formula" (kill guys, help your friend, boss fight).

The only thing I'd suggest is making the door close behind you for the boss was too easy to stand outside and shoot into the room, killing him slowly over time. Otherwise, perhaps adding some directional animations and including the ability to shoot diagonally would be good.
Posted by Fish20 29th January, 2008

what if i changed it so you could shoot with the mouse instead of the arrowz.

and the thing about directly shooting. Its obvious because their trying to destroy you.

who said this was my second game?
