Play the Alpha 1.0.0 Pre-Release 1.

It is interesting and not to be bashed to harshly as it is obviously very early in development and I assuming it is your first proper game, judging by your website, but there is definite room for improvement like the graphics look kind of like paint Cheesy and the collision detection is a little off.

Yet I do wait to see where you take this and wish you the best of luck.

Well got that one bug fixed in Pre Release 2 It was some thread concurrency issue where i had to put most of the "stuff" on the main menu game thread.  Grin And yes i notice the collision is a little off Hmm.. i think its something with the player width and height or the tile width/height will look at it!

I played the game and I must say that I had a fair bit of fun with it. There are some collision problems on the corners of blocks but I will look pass that since it's so early in development. One thing that does worry me a bit it your FPS counter. For me it read 16 fps the whole time I played. It didn't really feel like 16 fps but I should not get anywhere near that on my machine. Other than that stuff, the game look pretty good so far.

Lol it is actually pretty good, major collision problems with the corner of blocks though but the downside is the graphics, they are pretty bad lol, but that's ok, it runs without crashing and runs smooth so that is all that matters,

What you got planned for it?

Yeah, I am working on fixing the collision and definitely the graphics are gonna be updated (They are going to keep their pixel-like form because it is based off of the NES game Spelunker if you've ever heard of it) but more enemies and levels. I am thinking of adding bosses but probably not until 1.1 well I'll see how far I can get with this  Smiley

is the punch/shoot not implemented? or are the keys not working?
going back to the first level when you die makes it a bit discouraging to keep exploring.

yeah, I left out a lot of bugs but the gun and punch are implemented the controls are x and z for them I changed them at the last minute in pre2 so when Alpha 1.0.0 is out the help screen will be redone. As for the going back to the first level when you die.. the way my game is set up I would have to create multiple death screens to go back to the level you died in. But, I will look in to it!  Wink

Now i'm sure to be flamed for this, or perhaps get a shiny metal, but I need to tell you something that will keep you better off. Now you don't have to listen to me, thats fine. (but a lesson in a lesson, listening to all will help you in the long run).

First and foremost, On the behalf of what I've seen, no one looks up to game devs who don't make games that they like.  What you need to do first is CREATE an ENTIRE game, and then start trying to show themselves as a person.

What I mean by this is, make a product, then you'll be known for it. If someone suddenly said "I'M GOING TO CREATE THE BEST GAME EVER" no one will care, or they will say, do it. But if someone creates a great game, the person will then be known, take notch or redigit for example, they were just doing there own thing, people loved their games, and thus they became well known people. But have you ever heard of the guy who said they were going to create a game and get instant famous (without having made a previous product). No. you havent.

In summary

MAKE STUFF ==> GET FAMOUS
GET FAMOUS =/=> MAKE STUFF

or if it floats your boat

BE MILEY CYRUS ==> GET INFAMOUS


I personally dont like el little kids who act famous. *coughicoughtrycoughnotcoughtocoughbecoughone*


FAQ

Q. Swords, Why do you always b so mean.
A. Because im harsh.

Q. Why are you flaming/derailing
A. Because Devin is pretending he is famous and everyone cares about his weebly.com websites. and quite frankly, thats very unprofessional in my mind...
Ok we have a new website!

I don't need any flamers, I'm just inputting my opinion, it stops here.

@SwordsMiner: that's a perfectly valid point you've made, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that he thinks everybody cares. Why else would you put a project up on here if not for exposure? Whoever likes it will like it, and for them the website might be a great way for them to constantly follow and stay updated with any developments.
