Crocodingus in Cube Island : the game

on: August 20, 2008, 11:50:06 pm
hello all

finally I made a new game with a french coder named Birslip
It's a reflection/platform game for the Nintendo DS. This game is full 3D and it runs at 60fps. It includes 10 levels with differents features.
You must collect all the bananas of each levels in order to finish them.




Enjoy here

I hope that you will like it, all the textures are made with promotion in a pure pixel art :D

[EDIT] A new version it out with a lot of new features ;)

Oh wow, very very nice.
I am however a little upset that it's not a 2D platformer :P

You may be interested in the homebrew bounty over at GBAtemp (the bounty is now over $300), I think you have a very good chance at winning

Uh, I think if you press start at the game over screen it will act as if you hadn't died and that you're just unpausing.

No$GBA runs it...although it crashes after the first level.

I am very impressed! not too long ago this was just a mockshot!

no$gba crashes because the save file format is FAT :)

you must play in a DS game system ;)

That's amazingly fresh and funny. Congratulations !

But now that i look at your mock-ups i noticed one small error in the mapping (don't remember if it was here in the game)
The textures of the reflected terrain in the water was not inverted. The reflected "piece of grass" should be downside.
You could also make the texture fade as it sink into the water (just a suggestion).
And maybe you should try to change the texture on top of the mound to make it stand out a bit more from the rest of the terrain because it is now sometimes hard to read.
The camera is also rotating too slowly which is a bit frustrating.

Keep up!
May the pixel be with you  ;)
