Hi, folks. Just a quick message cause I'm short on time. I've been working on a puzzle game since about October, and I'm finally ready to release a demo. Enjoy!


Download available here

The title screen looks craaaaaaaaaazy awesome! I've said it before, and I'll say it again here... Chris Covell is the pioneering master of special graphic effects on the PC-Engine in our little community. Really addictive gameplay on this thing too. The whole package is very polished and smoothly presented. Excellently done, Chris. Make sure you follow through and finish this up. Something this slick should never just be left as a demo. Wink

I call them the Yu-no Puzzles -- great stuff :D

Amazing piece of code too. Chris is indeed a talented PCE developper. Oh, how I wish we had a decent PSG soundtracker to play with... Something like FamiTracker...

WOW!

This is a masterpiece! Seriously Very Happy ! When you said it was a puzzle game, I was expecting something unoriginal and boring, but your game really blew me away after I learned how to play it. This is one of the most original puzzle games I have ever played, I would consider it a mix between Minesweeper and Pictionary Smile .

The graphical effects are extremely well done as usual of course and I even manage to find a color count of 109 when you complete a level. I don't know how you create such effects (I'm not a programmer), but they're amazing.

I was playing this game for maybe like an hour straight just now on my first time loading it, it's incredibly addicting. I can't wait until it's completely finished with a PSG soundtrack as Kaminari said Smile . Well done man, and I dig the peace opening.

Cooool!

I got to try this out when I get home. I was just thinking recently about a 'project/game' you mentioned in a post - a few months back.

The only thing I'd be worried about is the extremely tiny text...other than that, looks prime. Very Happy

Oh yeah, I was meaning to post about the text problem, it's pretty hard to read.

Sorry, but I have nothing special to release right now. The game is coming along. I'm adding more puzzles, fixing bugs, and over the last few months I've prettied up the puzzle selection screen:


I'll get BRAM saving working, and then I need to cram in more puzzles, etc etc.

One big problem that I am still facing is a lack of sound/music in my game. So far a couple of musicians have come forward, offering to add some songs into my game, but they both are using HuSIC, which is not optimal for games. For one, the size of a HuSIC file is about 50-100K for one song, and multiple songs plus sound effects in one file can't be made with HuSIC. (sigh)... I wish there were a better music tool for the PC-Engine. Something compact and useful for games.
