Got a demo of my game up and running. Demo has one level and 16 missions.

A little about the game:

2d Platformer.
1 player.
similar style to megamane but with strider style slashing.
You can use keyboard but pad is highly recommended.

Picture examples:

It would be great if people could give me any feedback on bugs or concerns for the game.
Thanks for taking a look.

Added keyboard functionality to the stage select... seemed like it was kind of important to add in.

@mapmerry


I think you should upload it to dropbox instead so people can play it live from your dropbox rather then downloading the file. Personally I prefer to test games live.

Although the presentation of the game does look pretty good.

Ok ive added a link to a non dl version of the game above and here:

marauders website

Wasn't fully intended for web play so music can take a little to load before it plays but the gameplay seems to work fine as far as ive tested.

Excellent! I can't believe no one has commented on this yet.

The amount of work in this is impressive; I like how you put in a lot of animations to keep the characters and background alive.
I also think the slashing attack is great; it's difficult to do right but satisfying when you do.
The J and L buttons are also a great combo for dodging and attacking; overall, a very flexible range of controls.

Just 1 thing, though: I hope you give the main character more than 3 HP. Usually in a game with enemy bullets, your health is longer, because there's a lot of them to dodge. Even classic Megaman could take 8-10 bullets before dying. I hope you can increase the health so I can enjoy the game better.

But besides that...this is fantastic! I'd like to see more of it. :)

The 3 hp was made to give enough challenge to the level without being too hard. There are checkpoints throughout the level in small 1-3 minute chunks that gives you full hp back once completed.

Hey there mapmerry, your screenshots were doing injustice to your accomplishment. I watched the video and I really liked what I saw. Are you going to enhance the graphics somehow or is this more or less the final look?
