SkyScraper Scuffle

by Rococoman - Mini LD Entry

Hi! This is my first LD entry... on a mini... Late :).

As is the case often, I guess, I only had about 8 hours total to hammer something out, but I really wanted to get in on the action. For my first entry, I picked something basic. The long, 8x1 aspect ratio made me think of fencing, or fighting on a long plane, and so I put together a fighting game. I vastly underestimated the amount of artwork needed, so it looks pretty lousy. Still, I'm pretty happy with how it plays, for only a few hours of work.

EDIT: I uploaded an archive, rather than the .exe so AV programs don't wig out. Also fixed an error with player 2's punches not reflecting shots.

For such a short dev-time, it's absolutely sweet. =)

Thanks a lot! I feel that fighting games deserve to be distilled down into bite-size chunks more often - the genre really hasn't changed since the early 90s, and we might learn something by just hacking off major components of it.

It's fun and challenging, I like that^^ Nice graphics and good movement, maybe it would be nice if you could shoot while walking and also some sounds and music^^

Also thank you for the hint about the fuzziness :)
