Turtle Rescue

Post by jsherman » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:40 am

So here's the result of starting with nothing and roughly 8 hours of exploring NES Maker's capabilities:

I give you the worst video game ever! ;)

I still have a lot to learn, but my goal is to make a cute little game where our hero turtle collects seashells while dodging crabs and maybe other nasties.

Second attachment didn't seem to take, so here it is again. Sorry... learning how this particular forum works here.

Awesome! Love seeing that someone made a non-human protagonist! You're the first, that honor belongs to you! :-)

Don't worry, in the next beta update (at least, for May) you'll be able to do cool things with collecting objects and whatnot (and a lot more). Great job!

No one's done an inanimate object yet! I'm doin' that one.

I tried to upload a video, but wow, did YouTube compress the hell out of it. In the meantime, I cooked up a slightly better title screen. I found the special screen editor was very stubborn with setting multiple palettes.

Youtube seems to usually work just fine for me. I wonder if it was another issue that lead to the high compression.

I really like this idea, it's cute and sounds like it'll have a classic arcadey feel to it. I could have easily seen this being on the NES back in the 80's.

Played around with the graphics, added some mean crabbies, and finally resolved some bad tile definitions. This is almost passable for a game.
No magic win button yet, though. :D
