Kolumbo! Treasure hunting and action with random levels.

Post your Construct-made creations!

Post » Wed Mar 18, 2009 9:42 pm



The ruins of Kolumbo are all that's left behind of a mysterious civilization. Legends of incredible treasures and priceless artifacts attract fortune-seekers from everywhere. Only the greediest and most brave adventurers dare to enter the seemingly endless mazes, infested with weird creatures.



The goal is to collect all the (also random) treasures in the maze and return to the exit. Don't be too greedy! If you don't know when to quit you will just fall victim to the many monsters prowling the hallways.

Move your character with WASD. Hold right mouse button to draw your weapon and click left mouse button to fire. Your movement speed is reduced while a weapon is drawn. You can switch between a pistol and a shotgun by pressing Q.

Pick up treasures by walking over them. Stand over the exit symbol and right-click to exit the dungeon. Stay out of the enemies' sight to save ammunition.

The HUD shows the direction to the exit, the number of treasures remaining, your health and remaining ammunition.

This is a "one-week project" that took our two-man team couple of months mostly because of the lack of free time. This release includes most of the features planned in the beginning.



Some Features:
- Random levels (with adjustable parameters)
- Random treasures
- Mostly original soundtrack
- High scores

Sweet game, man. Very slick :)

And hard as hell... combat is definitely a last resort in this game. This really isn't a game where you want to hunt enemies. Avoidance is key, fight only in self-defence :P.

I did manage to get out with all the treasure, but it took me like four games to figure out that I should be wary rather than brave :P

I haven't played the game yet (not at my home PC), I just want say thanks for actually putting a decent intro post together. So many people post items in this section with no info, no screenshots, no real description - just a link and something like "here is my new game". It annoys the hell out of me!

I wish everyone posted their creations with as much detail as you have. It's really nice to have some idea of what to expect on the other end of that link. Thanks.

Any chance of a random-maze algorithm tutorial?

Oh hey you posted this before I got to fix the minigame scoring system. You know, so that it actually works. Let's hope nobody notices... :)

Edit: Welp, looks like you fixed it. Awesome.

Wow, that's really entertaining!
I liked how the treasure names are generated, so simple and creative!

Keep up the good work man!
