personal comment


I wanted to join a NES GameJam a while back, but I never found the time to actually sit down and finish it, anyway here is my prototype I made for my idea I had, I was sort of aiming for some old school Metroid like game, but I was mostly focusing on trying to make the art be 100% legit for NES.

please note, this is just a test map, i made, so there is no end to it.
and this has only been spend very little time on, so don't expect anything majorly.

and I again, this is just a prototype of a game idea, not a full game.

Also I haven't done anything on it for ages, I just thought I'd upload it so you guys could have a try at it. :)

I like it. I actually like the concept of grabbing onto the edge. I thought that was a nice mechanic to add for wall climbing.

May I give you an advice for the future? :3
Please avoid laying your controls on "z" and "y". Especially when you try to keep the controls close to each other.
Z and Y are switched around on european keyboards, so it's a bit uncomfortable to play this way.
However, there's a reason why wasd is such a famous pc-gamer combination, because these keys are the same on every keyboard.

In the end, it's just friendlier for international gamers ;)

I guess it's not all around europe like that, I live in Denmark, and it's more or less the same as an english keyboard, so did't really notice it, but i will keep it in mind for the future, thanks

The controls really mess with me. I'd probably get used to it eventually, but I'm used to space or up for jump and usually WASD instead of arrows. The game itself seems to, as some people have said, have some cool ideas that weren't around in the days of NES.

LOVE the ledge grab mechanic. I can think of a few NES games where that would've saved some extra lives. :lol:

The style looks NES-authentic (I love the use of an all-black background with sparse background/foreground objects; very Batman-esque), the character controls well, and the short psuedo-level feels like a proper "tutorial" for a larger game. Kudos to you on your hard work — it certainly paid off.

Neat c:
I found a glitch though; it's possible for the ledge-grab animation to be facing the wrong way, but it's hard to reproduce.

Personally i would put some sort of limit on the weapon, 'cause i can just run around with x held down all the time. Some sort of ammo system, or a limit to how many boolets per button press.

it's just a quick prototype so there is a lot that sucks though, and need to be tweaked.
