Default 2nd Sky Warrior Experiment - 07-03-2012, 09:10 AM

I've decided to try some more experiments with the Sky Warrior games.

This world isn't very impressive at the moment, but the goal of this world is to create new bosses and enemies to fight.

The grey ball to the right is codenamed "Seeker". It is (or will be) an enemy with low health and simple attacks. At the moment, it needs to be glooed together.

Let's see what this experiment will bring!

Awesome. Checking it out now.

Edit: Cool. I like the background stuff you are doing, but I think you should focus more on the actual game and not these test/experimental projects. It takes quite some time and you could be using that time on the real game.

Default New Experiments - 07-03-2012, 01:48 PM

==========Additions===========
-Enemy Bullet Shooter from the Robotron-Like Game added (24 Enemy Bullets can be onscreen at once). Press 1 to fire.

-Enemy Bullets change properties before being fired. This means multiple enemies can fire different types of bullets by using only one bullet shooting object.
(To change bullet types, go to EnemyBulletShooter's EntityShoot method. Watch the "type" local variable, and change it to 0 or 1. If you do this ingame, it is recommended to wait until no bullets are onscreen.)

-Enemy Bullet Shooter's "Fire Rate Controller" removed. Bullets are shot ridiculous fast.

-Press 3 to Clear Screen of enemy bullets.

-Seeker's body absorbs bullets.

Default Unusual Idea - 07-03-2012, 05:57 PM

I just had this strange idea...

What if you could somehow take control of some of the bosses and use their weapons to fight other bosses?

I think I got the idea from Darius Gaiden. Watch how the player takes over the giant fish robot.

In this idea, the player is inside of the boss (somehow), and a targeting reticule appears on screen, showing where the boss is aiming.

Maybe if your player got out of his ship, jumped on the boss, dis-appeared behind, heard some cartoon hit noises, and then hacked it so you could control it. That would be interesting.

Default Experiment 2 - 07-04-2012, 01:31 AM

======Additions=======
-Revolver Force added (No attacks, but it can be killed.)
-Seeker can be killed. (Respawns shortly afterward.)

-Background Changed Temporarily.

-New Player Animation: Possession
Press Enter, and the player will be enveloped in strange energy. The player is then compressed into a small energy beam and flies toward the enemy. If you hit a weakened enemy, you can assume direct control of its weapons.
(Not functional)

I think what you should do is not release all these tests, but make the full game and then release it finished.

Default I'm thinking of removing the Possession power... :( - 07-06-2012, 08:55 PM

It's a real pain to program it, and I have used it in a way where it glitched and utterly broke the game. Also, I don't think it was really necessary for the game anyway. So I'm going to remove it.

I was, however, able to get it to work. It's just annoying to program for.

However, I didn't want all that effort to go unseen. Here's how the possession attack would have functioned in the game.

Sorry.

====Additions======
-Possession functioning (soon to be removed)
-Step 1: Weaken the Seeker's health to 200 or less.
-Step 2: Press Enter to begin possession. You are invincible during this time.
-Step 3: Take control of the Seeker and it will begin attacking automatically.

-To Exit the Seeker, press Enter again.
