I made a game, for Halloween

 

  
So yeah. Here's that thing I mentioned in my last blog post. Sort of a minigame-fangame thing that's kind of like Pac-man and kind of not. If you want to download it, hit up this link right here.  Everything about this game is pretty simple - if you've ever played Pac-Man, that's more or less what's going on here, though there are a few key twists. It'll probably be more fun if you figure those out for yourself, though, as I've made them obvious enough in the game itself that they should not need explanation. If you need controls, they too, are pretty simple. There's a readme if you want more info, but you probably don't need it.
 
As I said in my last blog - I may come back to this later and add a few more ideas, depending on how well its received. But for now, I have to move on to another (higher profile) project. I should also get around to writing that M&S review...

Dude this looks really good, the video was pretty awesome too, I liked how when you were typing in the message to share with friends, you made a mistake haha, made me laugh. =P
 
EDIT: Also, after I got owned on the first level by sucking at the game, I entered my name for the score table, and it just hung after that with a flashing blue screen.

Another great Blaze masterpiece. You should do this for a living. I'd buy your games.

Dude, you could ACTUALLY make a decent next-gen Sonic game.

This is one of the many problems I've been wrestling with. For some reason, the only way I can retain high score data is to have it save to a hard-coded location on your HDD, so I chose C:\luigi.ini - if you don't have a C:\ drive and it can't find the file, the game flips out. I'm working on a fix.

I remember him working on THE BEST 3D SONIC GAME EVER, Sonic Robo Blast 2, and now he's developing a brand new 2D Sonic game called SONIC THE FATED HOUR.
 
But of course, it will take a great amount of time.

Okay, if any of you were having problems with the game getting stuck in a loop on the high score screen, re-download the file. I've applied a fix that should hopefully do the trick. It uses fancy voodoo magic to store the high-score data in your "Application Data" folder.
 
And if it can't do that, then it just displays an error message instead of freezing.

Ripped sprites or?

Making a game is nothing special. Making a good game, however...

Posted by Willy105

I played it!
 
Here are my impressions:
 
THE GOOD: Polish! Just running around feels good, and collecting the coin's (with those sound effects) feels so good. The sound effect for collecting items, straight out of Mario Kart 64 makes you feel all warm inside. The graphics look great, Luigi animated perfectly and the colors are vibrant! The extra helpings of visual effects helped too.
 
THE BAD: It's Pac-man. So it's repetitive.

Wow man .. that looks pretty awesome !! Did you make the game in flash .. or C++ or something like that ?

YOU MAEDZ A G4M3 W1TH LU1G1Z INN17!
 
On a more serious note, awesome :). I haven't downloaded it yet but I will.

@Venom2112: Multimedia Fusion. I really want to learn how to use Flash one day, but I've never gotten around to it. But... Multimedia Fusion will have an update eventually that exports games to SWF, so maybe I won't have to.

Oh hey, Destructoid and Kombo posted about it. That's pretty cool, I didn't think it would be this popular.
