K, so after a brief-ish period of inactivity, i have begun working again at full blast!  I'm working hard to finish the first third of the game so that if i can't finish it all by the deadline, i can just submit a demo.

Today I worked on integrating a Boss system into the existing platform engine, and programing the first Boss, which, if i might be modest, is EPIC!

The boss is this giant machine that hangs from the ceiling and span all the way from left to right.  The outer layer consists of indestructible laser blasters!  They fire at you several times, and you have to keep moving to dodge the lasers.  Then the machine opens up, revealing the core.  If you don't hit it in time, it fires a massive beam down that sends a blast all the way across the screen, and you have to jump over it.  After you hit it several times, it starts activating multiple laser blasters at once!  And it fires faster and faster!

I'll try to get a screenshot up soon.

Hmmm, anybody ever have any problems with TiConnect corrupting programs it attempts to transfer?  Yay for backups on calc!

This is looking very cool Builderboy, I can't wait to try it out, I haven't tried out many new calc games recently and this is one of the best pure basic games I've seen in a while.

Alright, after buying a new computer (not for this reason XD) and installing everything, it is working!  So here are some screenshots of various stages in the Boss fight.

 

The difficulty gets harder as you do damage to the boss, and it gets faster as well as dealing more difficult attacks

wooo more screenshots!

Screenshots takes using WabbitEmu, and sped up slightly to simulate the speed it would be on an SE, which is what it is being made specifically for.  Also certain tiles had to be changes because they contained 'illegal characters'.

General moving and jumping, also demonstrating 3 different items/abilities:  The Hookshot (Thank you Zelda), Magic casting, and Levitation.  It also shows enemies, which are being represented as the * character in the screenshot, but have a much better 'illegal character' character in the real version.  It also demonstrates Keys (not coded), doors, and elevators.


This is a screenshot of the 1st Boss Battle, also sped up to be SE speed.
