Danger at US Robotics

by rgbDreamer - Competition Entry

A 2D platformer built in pygame. Mainly inspired by Megaman X.

The robots at US Robotics have all gone insane and started destroying everything! Except you, a self intelligent robot named Robbie. Find and rescue the scientists.

Now the windows link comes with a win32 exe. The source link is smaller and requires python 2.5-2.7 and pygame 1.9.


arrow keys/wasd. More explained in game. Listen to those wordy engineers.

Good playing!

I should mention that this was made using The GIMP, sfxr, and audacity as well as pygame and Python.

This one includes python26.dll. You may have to move the .dll to ...\windows\System32 .

A good entry for LD. A pity you didn't have time to implement the sort of laser charging at the end.

Nice entry overall, you managed to get lots of stuff in there and good adherence to the theme - keep up the good work!

Even it it is a bit unpolished: it wasn't really clear where I should go to and in the beginning I fell off landed on a platform and found an engineer then saw another one above me and couldn't get back up so I had to restart, then later I couldn't see where to go so I tried jumping off again - to my sudden doom 1 floor down... a bit more linear level design may actually be a good idea for this type of game, like needing a gift from an engineer to progress to a next area.

Nice game if a bit unpolished

Tried running the game both with game.exe (complains of a missing 2.6 dll, I run 2.7) as well as through the command line where it complains about bad magic numbers (both in your pygame source and my own).

Any last-minute suggestions?
