Echo Thrust - Thrust With A Twist

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Made in under 12 hours with crude ASCII graphics. Echo Thrust is a simple Thrust clone with a bit of a twist. The aim is simple collect the hearts. When a heart is collected a version of your past self is created (an echo) and these must be avoided. Lose 100% of your shield and it's game over

    Controls:

    Titlescreen:

    Shift - Start Game

    F1 - Clears the current Highscore to 0

    In Game:

    Shift - Thrust

    Arrow Keys - Move

    Escape - Quits to Titlescreen

    I finally finished something. I'm quite proud of myself considering how lazy I am when it comes to getting anything done.

    Interesting game concept

    29 isn't bad at all. My best is 36 I think.

    Thanks

    Thanks. Was thinking of expanding the game but haven't really had enough feedback (from other websites) that suggested investing more time would be time well spent.

  • Bugs: Somtimes no hearts. Sometimes no echoes.

    Game slowdown over time.

    Also, it looks more like a prototype, not game. More levels and sound needed

    Thanks. Didn't know about the no echo bug will have a look into that. Still can't sort the no heart bug, will have to dig deeper.

    It was a prototype. Well I threw it together in under 12 hours. Most of that was getting the bloody echo system working right.

    Do you think the graphics are OK if I added more levels and stuff? I think that might be whats putting people off.

    Thanks again.

    I liked graphics. Maybe just apply different colours to tiles on different levels to vary it? Old good trick, you know

    Agreed - different colours for further levels does at least give some sort of illusion of progression.
