s0c7 Posted August 21, 2005 Share Posted August 21, 2005 (edited) WIP game... WIP name.... This started life earlier this evening as a proof of concept test to determine whether a Bard's Tale or Telengard type game is possible. I like it enough that I'm going to try to finish it up and try to squeeze it onto the end of the F-4 bin. This is similar to any number of the primitive adventure games you used to find in the really old computer game books. You have landed on a 5x5 island looking for the treasure of the dreaded pirate Upchuck LeDuc. Upchuck has been dead for awhile, but his spirit still haunts the island. You need to wander the island, first looking for a shovel. On the right of the screen will be a diagram showing which directions you are allowed to move. Tap the joystick to move. When you find the shovel you can pick it up by hitting fire. The screen will change color to indicate you have the shovel. Now find (if you haven't already) the X. When you find the X and have the shovel, hit fire and you will dig up the treasure & win. Upchuck wanders the island looking to protect his treasure. He moves every time you move. If you encounter him, you have the option to fight by hitting the fire button. Fighting is pretty much a 50-50 affair. If you win, his spirit will be laid to rest and he won't bother you anymore. If he wins, you die. At the moment you can simply move away and ignore him. My thinking is to make it where your only options are to fight him or move back in the direction you came, thus making you waste time. A score is kept. It is the total number of moves it takes for you to complete the game. You should be able to play a complete game in about a minute. Nothing fancy. My attempt at tropical foliage is probably very goofy looking if you aren't sure what it is supposed to be. Anybody have any great, smallish ideas? I am happy to say you should be able to do any number of adventure type games if you keep the world small enough. BTW - it's not readily obvious, but you will need to hit reset the 1st time you play.
