Evil Australians

by gameblabla - Mini LD Entry

EDIT: I have greatly improved the 3DO port, it runs fullspeed now. If you downloaded the 3DO port before, please download it again.

Evil Australians is a small game i made for the 3DO, Dreamcast, N64 and Windows NT4 (and 95).
It's a platforming arena game made from scratch with the help of my own library, Gameblabla's Wrapper.
The game has several missions and in each mission, you are stuck in an arena where
you must defeat all the remaining enemies.
To defeat the enemies, you have a rapid-fire gun that can shoot several bullets at the same time.
There are 4 missions in total.

However, he learns from the news that the Australian government is soon going to ban video games.
John became furious :
he grabs his weapons and swears vengeance on the government.

However 7 years ago,
the government collected his own DNA as part of a secret project.
This secret project allowed the government to steal DNAs from all the aussies.
The Government learned of John's plan and they used his DNA to build an entire clone army of himself.

John is now facing an entire army of himself,
will he make it alive and finally kill the law ?

How to Play
============
-Windows-
The executable has been tested on Windows NT 4.0 on SP6.
It should also work on an updated Windows 95/98 computer and out of the box on Windows 2000.
It requires 5Mb of free RAM and an SVGA card supporting 16-bits at 320x240.

-Nintendo 64-
Only tested on MESS 0.152. (later versions broke libdragon games)
To play it on real hardware, you need either a 64drive, Everdrive, or a Doctor V64.

-3DO-
Just burn the ISO file with ImgBurn on a blank CD-R and you're ready to go !
Note that this may kill your 3DO's laser in the long-term if you abuse it.

-Dreamcast-
The Dreamcast port can be played by burning the CDI file on a blank CD-R.
You can also use an emulator such as NullDC or lxdream but note that they are not very accurate.

That's a nice game, I tried first the windows version and it's smooth. Then the 3DO was slow and unresponsive but I will try the new version you just uploaded.
