[Halloween 2015] Ghoulsts 'n Arthur
« on: October 29, 2015 »
Greetings guys,

being kinda stuck in game coding mode recently this is my entry for the Halloween compo. It's a bit of a scary Frankenstein itself. Tiles and level data were ripped from the Amiga version of Ghosts'n'Goblins using Maptapper (great tool btw, you should check it out if you haven't already) Arthur and the zombie are from Super Ghouls'Ghost, the reaper from Ghouls'n Ghosts. The boss is from a well known Taito game. SFX are mainly from the arcade version of Ghosts'n'Goblins. Last not least the tunes are from the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine version of the Japan exclusive Ghouls'n Ghosts port named Daimakaimura. All was professionally put together with the finest spaghetti code I've ever done.
The goal of this Gametro is *drum roll* to kill all enemies! If you've killed all zombies, the boss will appear. If he's dead, the door to exit will open. Pretty awesome and never seen before, eh? ^^ Collect the weapon chests to get more daggers or lances or whatever these things are. But use them wisely as there's only a limited amount available and they also won't respawn when you die hitting an enemy. So don't go berzerk when killing the undead! Also keep an eye on the time. You've only got three minutes!
I didn't have (and won't have either) time to include some of the planned features like tombstone obstacles, more enemies, water, etc. I think I overextended myself on that idea anyway looking at the tight time frame that was available. But I'm quite happy with the result. Hope you like it, too! Oh and if you spot any bugs or the exe suddenly dies: that's perfectly normal at a graveyard... ;)


 :rip: :rip: :rip:

Use the following keys:

Cursor Left/Right/Up:  Move Arthur around, jump
Left Alt: When in front of a ladder, press this key to make Arthur climb up.
Space: Shoot lances/daggers/whatever
Esc: Chicken out / exit

Compiled with Purebasic. 5.40 LTS. Successfully tested on Win7/8.1 with Intel HD gfx. Uses DirectX

Enjoy & have a happy Halloween you all!

Pad :)

Thanks guys!  :)

@Dr. Death: Hmm, somehow I can't believe that the space bar isn't working, if the other keys do.  And you need space to get past the title screen. So it's gotta work in general!? ??? You did collect a weapon chest, right? Because you start of with 0 daggers and you have to collect a chest first to get some to be able to shoot at the zombies.

I really enjoy it and good boss at the end :)

First you have collected the chest to get the weapons then when you fire with spacebar then it would work otherwise you wouldnt have weapon to fire!

Overall of the game is really good on how you put all of them together.....Work very well!

Well Done!

P.S. I am on mobile broadband as at the moment as my 38MB Broadband is down until this wednesday when come back up :)

Hehe nice, although I am easily missing the ammo and there is no way to jump over a zombie if this happens.
