M.E.T.A.
« on: June 30, 2012, 10:49:38 am »
So this is my new entry that I'm coding and it's working smoothly. :D
So far, I got most of my game mechanics done and some maps as well.

META will be Metroid-like platformer that contains enemy and bosses as well. Since there's not much time left, I'll release the demo by the deadline. :)

I don't think I'll be posting screenshot though, because it'll be a huge spoiler. :D

So far, some awesome thing that works so far is wall scaling and wall jumping. :D

Good luck on this project. Sounds promising although the deadline is very close now O.O
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

If you submit then, this will be the earliest Omnimaga contest submission in history I think? O.O
Good to hear though

Just wanted to clear some stuffs out:
1. the thing that looks like water is lava. That's why you're taking damage.
2. The thing that looks like the spike is actually a grass/moss XP
3. You can kill the enemies with the bullets even though bullets go through. some of them take   some time to kill XD
4. If you quit, it autosaves. when it loads, you start from beginning of the map, but you keep all your upgrades. Just like how Metroid works XD

Nice, this is a pretty fun game, I just got around to playing it. It's really weirdly glitchy, tho - I ended the game with 65423 health.

O.o how did that happen? O.o
Which part did you get below 0?
----------------------------------DEMO Version----------------------------------------------------

So, since the contest is done, I'm working on a real version now. I'm working on a sprites right now, so there will be no screenshots for a while. But it'll be improved graphic wise and bigger maps. :D

EDIT: For people who didn't read the readme, META stands for Metamorphically Enhanced Transgalactic Astronaut.

It seems that everytime you touch a bouncing thing back and forth, it subtracts 2 from your health. Thus, you just need to get an odd health number, and then let it continuously kill you until you go 1-2=65533.
So here's what I did:
1) Get an odd score (I'm not sure how I did this)
2) Get the MetaBall (couldn't get it to work with other players)
3) go criss cross the enemy, subtracting 12 from your health each time, thus you keep your score odd.
