Maximum Security: DT's (formerly) unnamed puzzle platformer
« on: September 12, 2012, 08:08:46 pm »
I have no idea what to call it, because I don't have a story. (I really need a good story on this thing. The plotlines for all my platform games so far have been lacking, to say the least.) For now it's named Turret ... because it involves turrets.

But here's a screenshot of some things I've been trying out. This will be a level-based puzzle platformer in 6x6 blocks. Turret guns, dynamite crates, steel crates, water, boulders, shock lines (instant death!) and other awesome things are planned. Currently only the first three have been implemented, as you can see here.

The basic idea is that you have nothing (no guns, knives, etc.), but there are turrets trying to kill you. Instead of having them shoot you, try to get them to shoot in a direction you want so you can escape. (It's made with Axe.)



That's 6 MHz, by the way. Plenty of room to add more stuff :D

I was amazed at this when you showed it to me for the first time, when it was running 3x slower XD Still looks just as exciting!

Deep Thought, this is awesome!

Good luck with your storyline!
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

You'll be able to swim in water (moving up and down freely but slowly), which means it's another way to get around. I'm also planning a breath counter as a bar on the side that drops as you stay in the water, so if you're in for too long you drown.

Added shock lines today, and did some more optimizations.

Oh, there will be. But it's nowhere close right now—just some random pretty effects.
