Hellion 7DRL
« on: March 17, 2015, 08:52:12 PM »
My 7DRL entry this year is Hellion - a rail-shooter Roguelike, which plays a bit like a turn-based, grid-based version of Starfox.  In it, you must pilot a new experimental fighter-craft through waves of genocidal robots and destroy the avatar of the machine god.

Thanks!

I've just released a post-challenge update:

Hellion v1.0.1

This keeps the same basic content as before but improves the level generation, adds formations and generally tunes everything a bit more than I was able to do during the challenge itself.

Full changelog:

- Amount of fuel per Elyrium pickup increased slightly
- Recycling items now gives you fuel as well as credits
- Enemy and item generation tweaked to smooth out 'clumps'
- Enemies can now appear flying in various formations
- Amount of energy required for active weapons now shown on energy bar
- Field of view adjusted - should now be easier to tell which 'lane' an object is in
- Enemy spawn rates in each zone adjusted
- Out-of-zone enemy types now slightly more common
- Bugfix: Enemies no longer hurt by collision with pickups
- Bugfix: Items you cannot carry are now automatically trashed for cash and fuel when collected


Also; Hellion got a place in PC Gamer's Top Free Games Of The Week, which I'm pretty pleased with!

Hmmm... interesting.  I suspect that the problem is that your graphics card doesn't support OpenGL 2.0 and/or shaders, although if that is the case I'm a little surprised that it showed you the title screen OK, so maybe there's something else going on.  I'll look into it.

I'm sure it supports both. But there is a chance that it doesn't support some extensions.

I've just released a new version of Hellion - v1.1:

http://pnjeffries.itch.io/hellion

This should (hopefully) fix the shader problem that Xecutor was having.

It also adds a bit more content and polish:

- New zone: Water world
- New boss
- Skybox scale adjusted
- Cooldown time now indicated on weapon icons
- Enemy spawn rates further adjusted
- Shields now restored at the start of each zone
- Can now hold down the mouse button for continuous movement
- Energy bar changes are now animated
- New item: OmniCell
- New item: Pulse Bomb
- New item: Super-Shield
- Bugfix: Messagelog text resizes to window correctly
- Bugfix: Shader parsing error with some graphics cards

I can confirm - now it works on my mac mini just fine :)

I don't know if it's bug or not but when I finished first level I've got two upgrade choices with same text, but different icons.
Here.

That's intentional (even if it's not entirely logical!) - there are three categories of upgrade each with a 'deck' of six upgrades from which one option is selected randomly.  The four extra inventory slot upgrades are split evenly between the shield and the fuel upgrade groups.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.
