Notes:

Okay! V5 is done!

This includes:

Boss battle 1

new Alien death animation

new extra life gaining system (100 tokens=1 extra life.)

The boss music is only temporary. I’m planning on having a 8 bit baseball organ version of “Take me Out to the Ballgame” for the boss fight and “Charge!” for the boss intro screen.

Tomb Gator v4 (WIP) (NES Game)

Tomb Gator for NES by Christopher Addolorato got an update.

Tomb Gator Gameplay V4

Watch this video on YouTube.

Notes:

V4 of Tomb Gator Progress.

Includes: Working Coin SFX, Fixed music errors, updated player bounding box, larger spikes so you know if you made the jump over it or not and level adjustments.

Right now I’m noticing the game over screen has a tan block in the HUD and my player just sitting there on the top. I tried the fixed disappear block with solids underneath, and the screen using gravity, but my player falls through the screen out of bounds, and it doesn’t fix the hud. I tried holding the R key on it, but that did nothing.

My next step is the boss fights, followed by an instruction/title/end screen

and If I can figure it out, a high score/last score system. I know Ellen Larsson did that with her game so its very doable. I messaged her on twitter and she did say, its a lot of code. I’ll basically make this the last thing I do, if she can help.

Relic Hunter v2019.06.03 (WIP) (NES Game)

Relic Hunter is a NESmaker game currently being in development.

Relic Hunter – Up to World 2 gameplay

Watch this video on YouTube.

Current notes:

Some progress of Relic Hunter so far. I’d like to flesh out some of the stages some more, and it still needs some polish, but it’s a W.I.P.

Objective is pretty simple: collect all the gems and defeat at least one monster. There are energy powerups available to take them all down if you want the points, but you better not miss or you may not be able to reach further platforms!

And yes, those frogs really did kick my ass. I was going to make an excuse about me dying on purpose to show you the checkpoints work, but you deserve better than that. They owned me hard.
