Down - a platformer for LMS

Post by CaptainToenail »

A sidescrolling elimination game for last man standing.

You are falling down a pit, a very deep pit. The object of the game is to be the last player left remaining on the screen. Touch the ceiling, your dead. Fall to the floor, your dead. Scorched by a fireball? Crispy and dead. Also, all players have mini-rocketlaunchers, perfect for knocking other players off their perch.

IMPORTANT - limited movement in air MUST be toggled otherwise the game is unplayable.
also, primary fire launches rocket to the right, alternate fire to the left.

It's inspired by an obscure game of the same name that was part of a dev-kit collection on a UK Playstation demo disc years ago, very fun game.
I know people like these kind of fun minigames, so enjoy :)

Note although designed for Skulltag, it runs fine with ZDoom in singleplayer, it will just be a bit of a boring experience without any enemy players to eliminate :P

Shouldn't it be the other way around, seeing as how most people have primary fire set to their left mouse button?

I tried that, but it didn't work, and I couldn't find any documentation.
My dead what?
You are :wink:

Actually it is this way around, pressing left mouse button fires to the left, another small error in the text file. :roll:

Way beyond my current capabilities, BUT I do now have an idea for a space-invaders type thing where one team play as tanks on the planet surface, and the other team control flying saucers in the sky. :twisted:

He said "Tertis" - Tetris is a well known release.

Ah yes, Doom Fall Down. I remember playing normal Fall Down on my TI-83 calculator back in highschool. Was a fun game. :D
