SPACE TANKS
An exclusive game by CRTGAMER


Got inspired by fvgazi who mentioned here about game programming ideas.
http://www.racketboy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=278703#p278703

First off, some various do it yourself game makers.

KliknPlay
A very old Gamemaker called Klik n Play, anyone try that one?

3D Gamemaker

2D Game Maker
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_Maker


I made a game years ago with the help of Klik n Play, inspired by a couple very old Arcade games:

BLASTO

SPACEWARS

2600 COMBAT
Maybe a little of Atari 2600 Tank level too.

SPACE TANKS
A CRTGAMER exclusive Retro game. :mrgreen:

PC (Works in Windows 98, XP and Windows 7 with Virtual PC)
Extract both zips to same directory and run SPACETAN.EXE (F8 gives a Menu)
Joystick option looks for the old joyport soundcard connection, keyboard works fine.
Mame keyboard defaults. Customizing Player 1 and Player 2 keys is also optional.


Been a contributing member so thought I would share. Maybe even live in my 15 seconds of fame. :D
Don't worry its not a Virus or Spyware, I wouldn't do that my co-Racketboy members.

Its free in VGA color, so enjoy, would love to hear comments.

There are additional screenshot Pics a few replies down.

Does anyone want to try my Retro inspired game above? Would love to hear comments.

A tutorial and download, what's involved in making a Klik n Play game. Actually not too difficult.

Good old klik n play. I've been using MMF Express (later version of k&p) for over 10 years now. Still haven't bothered to buy MMF2, but it does have a lot of good features. Definitely worth the $130 they charge for it if you want to invest the time to learn it. It's great if you don't want to learn to program but want to make some really impressive games (in 2D)

So did you gave my game a try?

Arcade Blasto on youtube which inspired me to make a VGA version.

Finally got around to putting up screen shots.

Apologies for lousy pics, CRT scan shows up on snapshots.

F1 brings up a text help screen.

F8 shows a menu bar. Click players then the X to change keys.

Enjoy my FREE game inspired by BLASTO and SPACE WARS at the OP above. :mrgreen:

The Texas Instruments version of Blasto.

Image

Link shows an animated SWF file.
http://www.videogamehouse.net/blasto.html
http://www.videogamehouse.net/screens/blasto.swf

This game is a port of the 1978 Sega/Gremlin Arcade game Blasto, making it one of the earliest Sega arcades brought to the home.
You can see in the animation how the bombs explode, sometimes catching yourself or opponent off guard.
I implemented this, along with the Spacewars and Combat aspect in my homebrew.

The Arcade version.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blasto_(arcade_game)
According to the Killer List of Videogames, (Arcade version) is considered very rare.
A very unique type of gameplay. A reason I made a VGA homebrew version.
