Tumulus (r38) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

I don’t have much time to dedicate to it. But this will eventually get completed. New version. Now the sword disappearing on the far right is fixed. Pits should no longer override monsters, when overeyes is active. And a couple minor tweaks, that probably won’t be noticed.

Tumulus (r37) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

Fixed some of the screen size issues. I believe the only time the screen goes to 263 lines long, is for one screen, when you first start. The sky now only changes color, if the enemy is one you must defeat. Fixed the recently introduced bug of losing the horse if you were touching the horse, while you hit it. The potion no longer makes the opponents act as if they are hit. It simply changes their color, and reduces their life. This change helps with using a potion on a creature you can’t reach. This caused them to sometimes stay there forever, and you could never defeat them.

Tumulus (r36) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

Significant reorganization of code. Changing the way enemies are chosen. Switching to a routine to randomly choose enemies. For now, it simply increments through all the basic ones. This saves more than a 100 byes. This is probably the first version, that I think is playable. You can score points, and you can die. Remember to press fire to start.

Tumulus (r35) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

I hope you enjoy it, sodarun. If anyone sees any bugs, please post them here. I’m trying to stomp them out. A few more fixes, and improvements. Trees and pits no longer change color when you hit them, since you can’t destroy them anyway. Pits have returned, I improved the graphics a little. I have increased the shake with the eyes, and turned the pits back on. Potions now decrement when used. This one was completely my fault. At some point for some reason I can’t comprehend right now, I had put in code to randomly remove a potion when it was used, instead of always doing it. Don’t know what the hell I was thinking, putting that code it. But the offending has now been removed. The game now starts off paused, to play simply press the fire button. And now you can die as well. Removed a few bits of unused code. This is going to be an ongoing thing. I need to find some more space in the rom, for adding more monsters. Still need to create 2 more bosses, and figure out how to fit them sprites into the ROM. At some point I’m going to create a routine to set up the levels. I don’t have the room for the levels. This will also make replay a little more entertaining. Enjoy the new version. Also need to fix the bug that causes extra lines when you touch a boss.

Tumulus (r34) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

The potion no longer damages the player. Touching a boss, no longer causes an extra line. Number of potions is now a max of 5. Still trying to figure out why when you touch a regular enemy sometimes the screen becomes 261 lines instead of 262? I haven’t tried this out on a regular TV, yet. I don’t know if you would even be able to tell this happens. Also, it seems that the number of potions doesn’t always decrease when you use them.

Tumulus (r33) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Changes/Notes:

Improved the potion. The potion was not damaging the enemies most of the time. I kept thinking I needed to lengthen the fire time. But it seems it would damage the first enemies, but not the rest. Now it does damage everyone, however it may be a little too powerful. I’ll have to wait and see, as the levels shape up better. I might try to extend the time but reduce the damage. It seems that sometimes when you use a potion that it isn’t decremented. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s getting decremented then incremented by something dying? I will need to look into this. I’m at the stage where I need to rid the game of these pesky bugs.
