7DRL Success: Fuel
« on: March 18, 2012, 09:12:20 PM »
without further ado, here is our 7drl Fuel:

http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/index.php/Fuel

In Fuel you play a space miner and your singleship has burnt out the monopoles that power its engine (also the resource you mine for). You land on a large asteroid to look for more monopoles, finding a likely looking crater you start your decent. You need to find 5 monopoles to refuel your ship.

The roguebasin page includes screenshot and executables for windows, mac and linux (32 bit).

Spent a ton of work on this one, hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it :)

-Ido.

Cool game, but there is a control bug at least for me:

CTRL holding down works, but X does not.

I really like the tile based movement in a side-scrolling style.  Nice job!

Oops! Forgot about that one, will add it to the list of fixes for the bug-fix version. Gonna need at least a week away from the game at this point tho, had a really intensive week working on it :)

I'm glad you liked it & appreciate the feedback :)

I had more fun playing Fuel than I did playing Spelunky.

I'm playing flash version and I seriously cannot understand what to do :)
HP is decreasing each turn at somewhat frightening rate.
I can find and collect a few crystals, but cannot understand what to do with them.
Tried to return to starting point, but nothing happened.
Any hints?

Ok. After many tries I've found an elevator.
I've spent crystals on healing and recharging.
When I've clicked one last time, I'v got immediate game over:

Oops, that's a pretty terrible bug that happens rarely (I suspect it is because I didn't clear the previous level appropriately). It's high on my todo list to fix on the weekend.

Sorry! Ido.

There are two important features on each map- a purple flashy thingy (monopole) that you need to pick up and the exit door. Find the monopole in each level and go to the exit.

There are also crystal formations- shooting them (or standing on top of one and pressing ctrl) will convert them into a crystal pick-up. After you exit the level, you choose which 3 powers to recharge. Health is most important, the gun is necessary to get more crystal, and the jetpack recharges on its own over time already.

Monsters don't matter- just be wary, they move at the same time you do. If you're adjacent to one and shoot it, you'll both hit each other.

Been playing this a bit, and must say it's really entertaining. Kind of made me think of the old C64 game H.E.R.O (heh, playable online right here), though the differences are many.
