Need betatesters
« on: 2011-Jan-27 »
The first part of KRAKOUT RELOADED is finished. Now I need serious/dedicated betatesters.

I read somewhere about dedicated webpages to "hire" betatesters, as this also would help, as it could create some "hype" about the game before release.

Not necesary iphone betatester as it will be done in windows version.

Of course, any of you guys who wants to join can, just drop me an email.

Hi ampos

Just had a chance to test the latest Windows version, and it's great. The graphics for the most part are top notch (only some of the blocks let it down tbh) - very professional.

Good luck with this :)

You must have been pretty quick, as I removed the "Has no music" bit from my post within a minute of posting, as I found the FULL version. Did you read the post via email?

Anyway, why put two versions for pc and Mac in the archive?

Its a hard game :)

I wouldn't put all the platforms into one file either - it may be a bit of a pain separating the programs and media, but people dont really want to download files that contain programs for platforms they dont have.

When you lose all your lives, I think you need to tell the player what to do next, rather than the game screen.  It could also do with sound effects when you hit those animated obejcts (spacemen etc).

I do like the intro sequence :)

Well, it is in alpha stage, most than beta...

When released, it will be different files for different systems.

You can press CTRL (or 2nd mouse) for turbo movement.

Saw the video with your game.
But downloading 71 mb to test, sorry.

Could you upload your "demo" just to "Win" and without music ?

Hi, I downloaded the program and I've been testing it on Windows (Vista 32-bit) ... in ipad logically tells me that the signature is not good: P (I can pass the UUID by mail if you want)

Parts:

- The spectacular intro ... in fact I intended to introduce an effect "border" charge (as in the ZX Spectrum) in my project: P
- The morphing you do from the old to the new screen is also very cool.
- Graphics and movement seem right to me, although I imagine that the palette is a bit slow (slides).

Question: Are you going to add a menu, etc?

Greetings

Buenas, he descargado el programa y he estado probándolo en Windows (Vista 32 bits)... en el ipad me dice lógicamente que la firma no es buena  :P (Te puedo pasar el UUID por mail si quieres)

Por partes:

- La intro espectacular... de hecho yo pensaba introducir un efecto "border" de carga (como en el ZX Spectrum) en mi proyecto :P
- El morphing que haces desde la pantalla vieja a la nueva también está muy chulo.
- Gráficos y movimiento, a mi me parecen correctos, aunque se me antoja que la paleta va un poco lenta (cursores).

Pregunta: ¿Vas a añadir algún menú, etc?

1.- loading

it was the very first try, and even myself was amazed how cool it was. It is soooo simple:
Code: GLBasic [Select]
repeat
        FOR n=0 TO 120
                sx=RND(20)+10
                FOR sy=0 TO sx
                        DRAWRECT 0,RND(borde),1024,RND(borde),RGB(RND(255),RND(255),RND(255))
                NEXT
        NEXT
        SHOWSCREEN
forever

If you want to move the pad faster, press CTRL or 2nd mouse or 2nd finger on iThing.

Of course there is going to be a menu.
