WIP: Elephants and Devils – a run and gun with a twist

leave a comment »


Work on my next game is well underway. This time it is a horizontally scrolling run and gun with a little twist: Instead of having just yourself to protect, you must also protect a large elephant who is under attack from little devils.

This adds a little bit of strategy to the game, as the player and the elephant share the same lifebar, but if the elephant is hit, less life will be drained than if the player is hit.

There are also other strategical elements in the game, often based on when you shoot an enemy, and there will be an elaborate score-system. I am also working on an online high-score feature.

I hope to have a demo out by the end of next week, showcasing the first 5 of 25 levels.

The Wonderful Towers of Mr Imp. A platformer with an 8bit attitude!

with 3 comments

I am happy to announce the release of my first game: The wonderful Towers of Mr Imp.

The Wonderful Towers of Mr Imp is a single-screen platformer with 5 levels and 25 double-edged rooms.

Download a zipped 2 tower demo here: WonderfulTowersDemo.zip (2.6Mb)
Download a demo with an installer here: Towers_Demo_Setup.exe (2.6Mb)

With this game I have tried to recreate the solid, fun feel of older platformers while adding something new. The result is quite a challenging game but one that I believe is fun and rewarding to play. I want my games to offer replayability.

My main gripe with most retro-games is that they lack the solid mechanics of the older games they try to mimick. I hope I have made a better effort than many others.

The full game is only $4.99 and can be bought from here: www.8bitattitude.com/towers.html

Have your say about the game in the comments section and help me make the next one even better!

Welcome dear reader.

I am a developer of no-bullshit arcade games in the 8bit tradition.
8bitattitude means challenging games that do not hide that they are all about solid, unpretentious fun.

This is where I will write about new releases, as well as about games in development and any future plans.
For now my games are available only for Windows but Mac versions are in development. Watch this space for more information on that.

I hope that you will enjoy my games and that I can continue developing games with an 8bitattitude.
I need your feedback and your support, so please do not hesitate in leaving your comments and suggestions on this blog. This is where you can have your say and speak to me directly.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
