  • Just a quick note,

    In the controls section of the options menu, I haven't yet updated the image of the controller controls.

    X is entering and exiting morph mode, B is shooting.

  • Well, you have an interesting idea, but I did know what to do : /

    Not sure I get what you're saying, you mean like you knew your games whole story and such?

  • Looking good@ Nesteris!

    I found the movement to be a little fast, as it was hard to accurately jump on small platforms due to the left/right movement accelerating to speed almost instantly.

    Having the morph ball assigned to a key instead of having to crouch twice is really nice though.

    I'd sure like to see where you take this next. it looks like you have most of the Metroid basics down.

    Thanks

    It's currently only that fast since it's still in the testing phase and I want to be moving around the level as quickly as possible to cut down on play-testing time.

    Yeah I thought that was a nice little feature

    I know that in Metroid Zero Mission and Fusion there's a lot of places early in the game where you have to change into Morph Ball mid-air and double crouching nearly instantly after jumping before hitting the ground can hurt your fingers, so I did that for gameplay comfort.

    I think my next goal is to set up save slots like in Metroid and Zelda, if you want you can help me out by making a .capx and sending it.

    Right now I'm thinking of using Dictionary keys to save values so the game knows how many energy, tanks and missiles to show on the save slot.

  • looks good!

  • Some screenshots for those who want to see the game but can't be bother playing it, keep in mind I've been focusing solely on mechanics and gameplay and that I'm using a lot of placeholders.

    Main Menu:

    Game Select:

    [attachment=1:3rzvs159][/attachment:3rzvs159]

    [attachment=0:3rzvs159][/attachment:3rzvs159]

    I plan to add sprites that show what items the player has in each file, along with the number or energy and missiles.

  • [attachment=2:2x46a3i6][/attachment:2x46a3i6]

    Starting point in the demo, you appear here when you start a new game.

    [attachment=1:2x46a3i6][/attachment:2x46a3i6]

    The save station in action. When you step on it the game saves your progress to the save file you're currently using.

    There's no worrying if you're going to accidentally overwrite another save file.

    [attachment=0:2x46a3i6][/attachment:2x46a3i6]

    Shows the speedbooster upgrade (placeholder sprite I made) and what the HUD looks like with 2 energy tanks and missiles.

    • Changed export option to not make window border appear when playing export version
    • Moved game layer to bottom, player will now be shown behind objects such as walls.

    Updated HTML5 demo is sort of up, but it's lacking a couple fixes from the current version.

    NW.js version is hella outdated!
