Well, I managed to compile this at 23:55 (GMT+1). Not that it's really important anymore with the extended deadline, but I really really wanted to get it done on the 16th.
Normally I wouldn't unleash something as sloppy as this upon the public, but I'm glad that I'm done and it's at least playable. I did many last minute changes and have no patience anymore to be honest, haha. I just hope nothing is broken.
But enough of my babbling...
There's trouble in Horror-Land. It's Halloween time on earth, and long-haired asian ghosts are trying to take over and rule the fear in the mind of mankind. Only one brave little boy, a Slasher Boy, stands between them and a new order in the world of horror.
Arrow keys => Move
SHIFT => Jump
CTRL => Attack / harvester hydraulic
F5 => toggle sound On/Off
F9 => restart game
ALT+F4 => quit game
Unfortunately there's no music in the game. I created some random SFXR sound effects, which I suggest you turn off.
Special thanks go out to SuperV, who did a bit of testing on this. Also to Lucid who did an amazing job with the SpriteFont object. Thx guys!
I guess a little bit of advice is in order indeed for the harvester stage.
You may have figured out that you can die two ways: getting pushed out too far of the screen and running out of energy.
So don't keep pushing CTRL if there are only 2 enemies or less. When you see more incoming, you gotta react fast. Of course it helps memorizing the pattern.
And yes Cecil I know it sucks that there's no music. Too bad I'm really not an audio guy, so I couldn't do it myself. And I didn't want to put something non-original in there. I'll try to get a musician on board for future versions.
Hi, the graphics are very nice. Did you do them yourself? The platforming also seems very solid from what I've played. However I couldn't get very far this time round. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. The sounds are fine and fit the pixel are quite well but I think it could do with some music.
Also the little effects, rain, rope body, the blood, were all done really well. They looked very nice.
with great graphics and very good animations. also wonderful particle effects (the blood) and a nicely engine. only problems are the difficulty and the lack of music otherwise its very nice and shows what contstruct is able to do if you have fixed all directX issues that is
Very entertaining and frustrating at the same time. Took me a couple of 100 tries to beat it but in the end i did. Well done on this one Destiny, even though i almost smashed my laptop in the ground a couple of times, im looking forward to the full game.
