The Legend Of Color (working title) [DEMO 2: Electric Boogaloo]

Root / Submissions / [.]

Download:X5VXDVHV
Version:DEMO 2Size:~1 MiB
https://youtu.be/W70lVpl4wzM Footage from an unreleased version, where the map system doesn't suck [Winner of the SmileBASIC Source Color Contest] It's a TLoZ-like game! Except that, you just have a stick and nothing else. Explore dungeons with color puzzles! Beat up enemies! Things! TBRW (To Be ReWritten)

Instructions:

D-Pad/Circle Pad: Move A: Interact B: Use Weapon

Notes:

Known Bugs & Glitches:

  • By moving and pressing A on the same frame when you transition between rooms, you can interact with an object that would despawn immediately after loading the room.
    reproducingOnce you have the Big Key for the overworld, open the big door east of your house. There, tap D-Pad up until you go to the north room. Once the screen transition happens, press Down and A at the same time. The big door cutscene should happen again.
    Probably fixed in next update, as you can lose keys forever with this glitch.
  • Warmup Dungeon skip: If you die in an area where the puzzle has been completed, dying in the same room and restarting the same file will make the game think you have completed the first dungeon. If you exit the house and reenter, the effects of the glitch will disappear.
    reproducingMake sure your last save was in your house. Go to the area with the first Browblin. If there are no rocks blocking the path, get damage until you die. Otherwise, defeat the Browblin and re-enter the room. Now either press A or B. If you pressed B, restart the same savefile. The glitch is now in effect. Leaving the house puts you where you would go after using the big key in the overworld.
    tl;dr sequence breaking. This will be probably fixed in the next update.

Future additions:

  • Character customization.
  • Bug fixes.
  • Ability to name yourself with a mailbox.
  • More dungeons.
  • Sidequests.
  • Stuff I don't remember.
  • A proper name for the game.
  • And lastly, a logo that is not ugly.

tentative title, could change any moment

Demo 2 has only one dungeon

Awesome!

This deserves to win.

Very nice! Every time, I try to make an RPG, I get stuck in the 'build best maped' stage. EDIT: I don't really get how this fits the color theme though, besides that ANNOYING RED TINT when you take damage, lel

SpoilerColor additions, fine Floor tile puzzle, could be done without color. I did not realize the boss was like that, lolfail
Spoiler"NOT IN DEMO"!!!!! :(
I'm just being picky about color, I don't really care that much and it's still a great demo :P

Spent 5 seconds playing and I already like it.

It's amazing! I had hopes for it since I saw what I think was a screenshot of it in a certain Discord server. It's very "polished" looking. I hope you know what that means~ Lovely job!~ help i can't write proper stuff
Spoiler My entry for the 2016 Summer Programming Contest: A game baring a resemblance to The Legend of Zelda franchise. But, rather than a sword, you only get a stick. Explore dungeons as you solve color-themed puzzles and fight enemies. Although you were just an ordinary person going on a walk, the one who happened to notice the road was blocked, now you're on an adventure!

This deserves to win.
It doesn't really fit the color theme, though.

This is really cool actually! I hope you keep working on this! I'm hoping this could be the new Drow for SB! Drow is like one of the best original games on PTC IMO.

Thank you! And yes, I will be still working on this. I will be shifting between working on Village SB and this.

Great game! But a few things I think would help. -Slower movement. (The game moves too fast. Moving the circle pad make you almost make it in the end of the room in a flick. Not only that but it feels slippery.) -Enemies knock back after you hit them. (I constantly have to run away from monsters because they're in my face all the time. Think of it like having a really good friend. But he's always in your personal space, you want to like it. But it's annoying that he's always in your face. Also here are somethings that would be nice to have but aren't necessary. -Extra frames on the movement of the stick (like a swing maybe?) -When your low on health, the bottom screen should be red. Or maybe the black part of the top screen. Besides that you did a great job :)

Thank you! 1. I'm too lazy to go around the diagonal speed boost lol 2. I'm planned to add knockback, but I was low on time. 3. I had planned to have a swing instead of a stab, but again low on time. 4. Mmm.. I'm not really sure about this. Maybe I'll make the red tint only appear only when your HP is too low? Or add a bleeping sound? And yeah I can make the red tint appear on the black area too.

Have you thought about incorporating turn based rpg elements like The Magic of Scheherazade? It was one of the earliest games I remember playing, but it stuck with me. Another Zelda-ish game you could pull from is Crystalis. Keep up the work!

I think its hilarious that you beat up the enemys with a cane.

This is great, man.

I think that means the server is having problems(or maintenance) rather than the public key being broken.

The weird thing is that I was able to download other games. And I also tried to download this one and it also errored out.
