Fadest Posted April 17, 2011 Share Posted April 17, 2011 The 3rd edition of the AC coding contest was helding this WE in France. Like 2 years ago (A Bug's Lynx), I choosed to code for the Lynx. The thema was Tetris/puzzle game, with this constraint : add bonus/malus. Of course, all has to be done in a bit more than 24h. Well, if you are expecting a new Tetris with lot of option like Tetris Gaiden on Lynx, I'm sorry, it will be Tetris Raiden in fact... Yes, Raiden, like the well known games with a space ship, and shoots... So, the gameplay is reversed, Tetris bricks are falling, the only way to interact with them is to shoot one or more block while falling. You can move on all the bricks already fallen (this is why there is allways a bottom line). Of course, the main goal to score is to make lines, like in real Tetris. You lose if colums are too high, like in real Tetris... But you also lose if the ship is captured by a monster (hey, have you ever seen a Tetris without monsters ?) or if you are dumb enough to shoot a bomb in front of you while you are on the bottom line. There is also another way to lose in this demo : score over 500 points (sorry, I would not want to see this ROM onEbay like it occured with A Bug's Lynx, so it is restricted). To have a summary of bonus/malus, just press Pause while playing. Here are the special blocs : - 2 of them let you improve (max 5) or decrease (min 1) your number of max shoot allowed, - the bomb will also destroy the 8 surrounding blocs when shoot (can be shot while falling, but also on grid) - the laser will destroy all blocs on same line when shoot, (can be shot while falling, but also on grid) - The monster bloc will crate a monster when fall stop : the monster will move randomly on grid. You can shoot it. You could also destroy monster bloc while falling... - The "protect line" will disable the ability the remove a whole line when complete. If you didn't destroyed it while falling, the only way to remove it is to shoot a neighbour bomb, or a laser on the same line. Some more infos : - this is a demo version, for Handy of flash cards, limited to 500 points max - it is not allowed to resell this ROM - there are still some bugs, the most annoying known is that the music doesn't loop, and stop on a continuous note. - it is normal that a full line does not disappear if your ship is on this line, just move up or down and it will be destroyed - the game ended 2nd of contest, the winner was a game on GP32 by Orion_ Have fun, I am waiting for your feedback...
