looks like very fun game, too bad that it didn't work as expected at the party. definite thumb up!!!
(note: even that says that it will work on ocs/ecs, it crashes the same way it did on the stream/party - on plain 1200 it seems to work just fine)

Simple game with nice graphics and good music. The code needs some serious fixes though, the system-check at the beginning spits out completely wrong results and except for a plain 68020 machine I couldn't get it to run anywhere. Final version is definitely needed!

As it is written after the system check "minimal requirement : Amiga 500 + 1MB Chip Ram". Why 1MB of Chip Ram ? Just because I like the way to distribute my software embedded in 1 executable.

BTW it is OCS/ECS and it works on all Amiga with 1MB of Chipram (A500+,A600,A1200,A3000,A4000 and it also work on my Amiga 1200 + 68060) Amiga 500 Rev 6A with this mod http://amigaga.chez-alice.fr/classic/bidouilles/hack/a500_1mo/a500_1mo.htm are also welcome.

Very nicel, but the Jaguar game Downfall has a much better playability IMO.

What has the requirement of 1MB of Chip Ram got to do with delivering your software in one executable? :D

Game itself looks rather mediocre. So no thumb in either direction.

Looks good, but doesn't play as well. Too slow, gets boring...
added on the 2014-07-14 12:01:01 by Daniel Daniel
@britelite for examples: intro gfx and menu are always in memory even when it is not needed (+ No disc access ; - Memory hungry), so shut your mouth and put your thumb in your ass...

Just tested on my A1200 with Blizzard 1260/50 64MB. The game works like charm. There's just one snag. How do you exit the game? ;)

@britelite, Nothing, but I prefer to distribute that way... and you ? have you release something on ECS (without 2MB of chip ram, cpu cache & aga) or are you still coding demos effects on a BLACK background that everybody has seen 20 years ago ? glad that you finally put your thumb in your smart fat hole.

From the one YT clip:
If you have 512k and 512k of Slow Ram it won't work

You could have used "Fake Fast" Ram (public memory, that is) to store graphics in there and copy them to a chipmem buffer if blitting would've been necessary or if it's just loading a static picture, one can just copy it with the CPU.

"game looks rather mediocre" sounds like an insult to me. The game is in 5 bitplans and looks nice to me if I compare from what I have seen in the DP. I'm in Amiga since 1988...Now when it comes from somebody that only show (with a good disassembler) the same visual that I have seen 20 years ago (visual invented by others people) don't be surprised if I answer by an insult. Some of your demos are so boring that first : I don't even put them in my hard drive, but moreover I fast forward them in Youtube... Yes Britelite (& others), your demos are boring, and *don't worry* ... I won't put a thumb down your productions because you don't like this game. BTW, not to find any excuse, but 4play asked me to have this game ready for the Solskogen and I did what I could... Of course it is a Party Version and it's going to be improved... Hey Britelite, code a better game, and wake me when it's done...
added on the 2014-07-14 16:42:37 by gibs gibs
@gibs: ok, I wasn't talking about the graphics, but of the game as a whole. The visuals are actually ok, even if I think it'd be better not to rip off donkey kong. But I've seen prettier games 20 years ago ;)

As for you not liking my demos, that's ok too, not everyone's a fan :)

Really? Funny, after reading your posts here I had figured you for much, much younger...

The game itself looks rather mediocre indeed, so piggy it is.
added on the 2014-07-14 17:20:47 by Kylearan Kylearan
Geez... this is becoming quite an issue. As for me, I really like the game. Nice drawn graphics and a good tune... Ofcourse, game-idea is rather simple but still it doesn't look like it's been rushed together. Certainly thumb up!
rulez added on the 2014-07-14 17:22:40 by kwe kwe
@Britelite, If you knew your standard you would have noticed that except the sprite nothing is coming from DK. And even the sprite is not coming from a Nintendo game, it's an original draw, a tribute by Semijuggalo. This is like this, some people like to do tributes... Your demos are tributes too ?

Oh you have seen prettier games 20 years ago in the domain public ? some names please ? Deluxe Galaga (oh shit it's a rip off) Deluxe Pacman (oh shitt again)... So do you have some good home-brew games in mind ? Again, code a game as you seems to be clever and show me... Perhaps you will excel who knows... Now as you can notice, you are coming here to criticize my game, but I don't even loose my time to put a comment on your productions... But be sure that the day that you will do something outstanding, I will come un put a thumb up...
added on the 2014-07-14 18:44:15 by gibs gibs
@gibs: I have not critized you personally at any point, I've just commented on this particular game. You really should learn the difference.
added on the 2014-07-14 18:56:19 by britelite britelite
Britelite: resistance is futile.. ;)

Gibs: please give birth to more games, intro's and whatever you do more! Keep em coming!

cool tune, gfx, nostalgic fonts - felt some nostalgia
even if gameplay does not look that interesting thumbs up for the amiga feeling
rulez added on the 2014-07-14 19:43:48 by whizart whizart
Thumbs up for Amiga game, but no thumbs for Donkey Kong sprite (that's not the Amiga way).
@gibs: do not take the remarks too personally. Have a distance. You were working on it and have a different point of view, that's obvious...
Take it as easy, as you can.

Nice game..
Althou I have some small remarks...:
1. Would have use different ingame fonts. Would be nicer to have 16x16 somkinda oval, cartoonish ones..
2. The same for intro. Those 8x8 looks too... (sorry dudes) Atarish ;),
3. Woild be nice to see the background moving too, even a little bit. To give the game more going-down impression.

Once again: good stuff.

I confirm that it works on my a600+1MB
my comment still stands, tho

Yes Britelite (& others), your demos are boring

Why a pouët account then? And bashing britelite seems odd!

Deluxe Galaga (oh shit it's a rip off) Deluxe Pacman (oh shitt again)... So do you have some good home-brew games in mind ?

How original, yours is a nicer but less interesting version of Man Goes Down (2004) or Downfall...

Thumb for attitude!

Well according to you, britelite has already done something outstanding at least 4 times. ;) a thumb up for that! =)

@britelite The fact is when you qualify the game "mediocre", you should understand that the game has been done by me, so you are criticizing my work, and by the way you are criticizing me... "mediocre" is an attack as not everybody is sharing your point of view... you could have said "average" but ok, it is "mediocre" for you. but coming from somebody that has never release a game... I wonder how your game would look it if it is running like most of your demos in more that 1 VBL... Be aware that I know that you have lot of friends here that are on your side just because you put them in your greetings list (LOL)... but outside pouet, I start to think that this game has more success than your latest production :)
added on the 2014-07-16 13:34:21 by gibs gibs
@gibs: ok, for me mediocre and average are pretty much the same thing, so you can mentally change my use of the word mediocre to average if that makes you feel better.

and seriously, grow up
added on the 2014-07-16 13:37:12 by britelite britelite
No "mediocre","mediocrity" are words that makes me feel much better when finally I saw the work of the man that use them.
As for "grow up" well... It's not me that is spending my time with "I give you a thumb down because blahblah". Hey back on earth dude ! Non mais hallo quoi !

BTW I'm not in RSE anymore (I left because I don't feel comfortable with this childish thumbs things and because I don't plan to release anything in the scene (music or so), I have my own followers and I don't have to move in a demo party to collect thumbs things. so if one of you don't like the way I talk, RSE has nothing to do with that.
added on the 2014-07-16 14:17:51 by gibs gibs
Personally.... do not know what to think (I know, I can think whatever I want)...

I think noone has a thumb-up/down only attitude. It is only a way of voting, sure, not too flexible, but still.

It also helps to see other ppl's point of view, when our is taken by devotion to a product. And here (I mean on this portal) as well, ppl are different, have a different point of view. But hey, they are not agressive, afa I'm concerned, until you say sth quite offensive. And also understand in that way...

Communication, and respect is the best way to understand each other. Here too, even this is only a "scene" portal... or is thought to be one...

Skipping the popcorn ztravaganza and voting a piggie for basically the gfx that are cute and neat, and the music is definitely better this time :)

But the game consists of reading the joystick and collision detection. Sure, a few frames of animation, increasing a score counter and playing sounds. But that's the start of a game, not a game. Why not build on this and make it a full game? :)

Cos now it's walk left, then right, then left, then right, level finished. Who will want to play that?? Think about collecting, avoiding, swinging from vines, I dunno... :)

@Prot-DHS Did your father did anal before jerking in your mother's pussy ? (I know this message has nothing to do with this production [like your comment]). I ask this because you are half of a human, half of defecation... Take a the computer of your choice, a do the same as what you see above in code, gfx & music... Then, you will be authorized to talk with me. For now, shut your mouth full of shit, continu to take pictures of you. Poser. And admit your level is as high as my hankles. But as you are probably not able to control a pixel on a screen, shut your mouth forever...
