Although I finished this yesterday at the deadline, I’m posting it now because the site isn’t (as) super laggy.
Proudly presenting Volcanox:
Volcanox is platformer that takes place on a distant planet, coded entirely in my own programming language. Our hero is stranded alone with a volcano in his path, and he must find a way out! There’s only one level and enemy, but it’s a fairly long level and the enemies are annoyingly hard. So plenty of replay value. There is an end for those brave enough to get there. It also times you, so you can share results with your friends.
I put up a small homepage for the game as well, so it’s not lost in this blog.
Extract and run the executable: volcanox.zip
The source is hosted on GitHub.
After speaking to some Windows players (after the deadline) I’ve found out that some of them have a problem with moving, where one direction is faster than the other. I also have heard of an issue where the sound effects break after playing initially. I was unable to reproduce any of these problems on my development machine (linux) so my apologies to those who encounter these problems during their playthrough.
