IkarugaX cheating tool
« on: August 05, 2014, 03:31:01 pm »
So yeah. Since it's been 9 months and nobody reached level 5 yet - I've reached it but never beat it - I thought I would write a quickly-hacked-together cheating tool that allows you to start the game at any level you want.

So yeah, it's a 12-lines program, so not really exciting, but it can help you have even more fun (fun ? yeah, fun) with IkarugaX. Maybe.

For those who don't know IkarugaX yet :



It's a danmaku (Japanese for bullet hell) shoot-them-up based on a polarity switching mechanic. Basically, both you and your enemies' bullets can be of either black or white polarity ; the thing is that only bullets of your opposite polarity hurt you, and you absorb the rest to fill your power gauge. When you absorbed at least 8 bullets, you can do a power release and fire as many power fragments as you absorbed packets of 8 bullets. Power fragments are homing lasers that go straight to the nearest enemy. So using your advanced arsenal, you go destroy tens of enemies, dodge and absorb thousands of bullets (I'm not exaggerating) and kick huge bosses' ass. You have 3 lives though, and have no way of getting them back when you lose them. When you get killed (ie lose all your lives) you get back to the beginning of the level you died in thanks to checkpoints (automatically reached when finishing a level).

Ryan (ticalc redactor) tells you his word about it : http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148436.html
If you just want to play, here's a link to the game's ticalc page : http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/457/45712.html

Also, you can tell the cheating tool  to mark the game as beaten. Because yes, something happens when you start a new game after beating it. Yes, all your nightmares were true. I know it's hard. You have to hear it though. You can't run away from the truth anymore. Remember, the countless hours you've spent trying to kill this goddamn impossible boss, to finally complete this fucking level and move to another one, only to find out it was just more impossible ? You remember that ? Good. Because now, your worst nightmares are becoming true. Yes, you were playing on easy mode. And yes, beating the game unlocks hard mode. Run with ION-compatible shells. Have fun.

Interesting, but is it beatable with cheats at least? :trollface:
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
