Second Legend

by misson20000 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is the game I made, and I think it's my best LD48 game yet. I am very happy with it, and everything you need to know SHOULD be in the game.

This has a great amount to it for being done in 48 hours. Great work and game

Nicely done, except... Boy did you forget that the only tiles that need displaying are the ones touching the screen, which you could have utilized to make objects not display unless they were on the screen... Also some sound would have been nice. And there is no reason to fight any enemy in the game, so I just ran past and did fine. Pretty interesting implementation of the theme, if only I knew where to go... Eh. 2/5.

Nice solid roguelike. The later levels with all the boxes got a bit boring, and the game certainly had plenty of health potions!

I get the error "could not find the main class" when I try to run it. Couldn't get the web or local version to work.

Lots of content and I like the graphics. Would be good if you could move faster and the enemy AI could be a bit more aggressive, just now it's too easy to avoid the encounter.

The gameplay was nice and simple, I especially liked the idea of using items directly from the (very Minecraft-like) inventory. As I recall, though, the beta version of this game had nice hand-composed music, and I don't hear any audio of any kind, online or in the applet. Also, it would have been nice if the levels later on had been more interesting instead of being made of mazes full of empty chests, but the super-speed effect of "punching" through the doors made it less bothersome. A pretty nice game overall.

The game DOES have sound, but the javaxsound.sampled API is the worst sound API I have EVER seen, and I couldn't get ANY sound to work outside of my IDE. It made me sad, because I made pretty good music for the game, too. I also didn't forget that offscreen tiles didn't need to be rendered. I was just too lazy to implement it...
The slime AI worked pretty well until I implemented skeletons, and then something borked up with the AI and I was too lazy to fix it. I sorta lost my creativity for the last few levels, and I was going to implement a key-door system like Legend of Zelda and many other games, but I didn't have time. Seeing that so many people played it, though, I might try to port it to flixel, which should fix some stability and performance issues, and add more features/levels/FUN!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
