Hi everyone,

just a little topic to present my 4K entry for this year.

Click to play


Gameplay is very simple, run, shoot the ghosts and survive over the ten levels !

Collect items dropped by ghosts, they will give you life, speed and power boost.

Good luck...

Hey, I love the graphics  Cheesy The game has a nice ambience to it. The most confusing thing for me playing the game was the projectile collision detection with the ghosts - I wasn't sure whether most of them go through them cos they're ghosts, cos I'm not exactly the same height as them or some other reason?

I like the graphics style but it was very hard to hit the ghosts with the fire balls, with them crashing into the mountains and the hit boxes being so small. D:

This is very pretty indeed, I love the destructible terrain.
Though, I agree with the previous posters that the hit box for the ghosts could do with being slightly bigger.

Thanks for having tried it !

The hit box is defined by the size of entity, but the difficulty is that you are in a box of 512*72*512 and ghosts can climb on each others.
So sometimes you can think the ghost is in front of you, whereas he's above and beyond.
But i agree that's not easy to kill them.

I like the graphics, but keep missing.  I'm probably at the wrong height, although it's difficult to tell.  It's definitely different, which is a major plus Smiley

The design of your game is great and it is also impressive technically. The gameplay is quite good, however what about indicating the number of remaining enemies on screen ? Because cleaning each country from all its invading ghosts is the goal of your game, isn't it ?

I tried to add this information on screen, but the pack.gz final file size explodes with every change in the source code Grin
I'll try again, but I don't know if I will succeed for tonight...

Good job!
Very nice graphics and good flow.
The only thing i didn't like was that the ghosts spawned too fast, i didn't had any time to play the en environment Smiley

This looks absolutely amazing. One of the best-looking 4k games I've ever seen or tried, and I've tried a whole lot of them. Excellent work! Smiley

Thanks for feedback !

Not enough time to make adjustments, but i will do better next year Wink
Each byte has been used for the engine and the storage entities, so in the end this is why the game is just a basic "shoot them up", without additional goals.
But if you get through the first few levels and collect enough speed and power boosts, the game becomes more ... fun Undecided (or not)

Ok, now time to test the other games !

Hi, just to be honest with you,
I inform you that I've corrected a bug in the physics engine that now synchronizes animations with cpu. Shocked
So now, everybody plays the same game, I hope !  Wink

If there's any problem with that, I can put back the old version.
