Jindo, you should include a way to save your progress
The game automatically saves your progress, have you not noticed this? o_O

There's even an Erase Progress button in the options.

How are these sections done? I put a flag before the first one and I just died repeatedly trying to jump underneath the lowest blocks.
The first jump is partly luck, but also the timing of your jump, remember to fall off of the block before it so that you can get 2 jumps.

The second one is falling off of the platform and jumping once or twice to avoid the spikes, not as difficult.

Yesterday I attempted Hard Mode from level 1. I made it all the way to level 20 (due to impatience, I ran out of check points often and found myself having to beat several levels in one run). By level 20, I had no check points and couldn't do it.

So, advice for Hard Mode: Keep hold of check points in order to beat the last level, you might need atleast 2.

(Also, as a reminder: Hard Mode isn't online yet and might not be for a while)

It only does everything.
He meant save progresses, like.. If you're at lvl 15 medium mode, you can close the browser and come back to that same level later without having to go through the previous 14 levels.

At least, that's how I interpreted it (and want to implement :D)

Ah.

I agree, I myself have wanted to quit and come back to where I was at, and I guess it wouldn't be so bad including this. It would start you at your exact last check-point, storing your current score, time, death count and checkpoints.

I'll have this added before release ;P.

When are these updates going to go online? :p

On the website for the game, you need to actually make some of those pages you have links for; especially the videos page (I think I made enough ;)).

Probably not until it's done ;P.

I know I do, I'll get to it eventually D:

Offline Progress:

  • All Bosses Finished.
  • Level Progress is Now Saved.
  • Cat Rescue glitches partially fixed.
  • Cat Rescue continued.
  • Achievements added.
  • More statistics (for Kongregate's systems) added.
  • More character(s) added.

NOTE: This progress thing is only to remind myself what I've done over the day, so that I don't feel that I've wasted my time, since I've effectively got the rest of this week and part of next week to finish it ;P.

Shanty Town is getting redone, I'm replacing the old levels since they were incredibly ugly, disorganised and annoying, in comparison to this. This is prettier, more organised and frustrating.

Level 1, think of it what you will, I beat it in roughly 15 seconds without dying, it involves hitting a switch to open the exit, and it involves timing your jumps to avoid the Shoop Wall.

Also on an important note, the game has now gone into some kind of closed private beta testing state, 3 people from each forum that has tested this game has received a code required to remove the box that now covers the game (you can still play with it there, it just gets in the way). 1 person here has been sent a passcode, I need 2 more volunteers (PM your interest).

The Game Is Almost Finished!!1!

Although it may be a few weeks before we see the game live on the web, here is the current progress to give you an idea:

  • Levels - 100%
  • Music - 80%
  • HUD + Layout - 95%
  • Pages - 80%
  • Bonus Content - 40%

TO DO:

Pre-Release:

  • Get the last few tracks off of Jimpy (Who has done a great job I might add)
  • Finalise buttons and overall layout.
  • Add dialog screens for when a boss is defeated.

After-Release:

  • Design and create 30 levels for 'Himalayia'.
  • Design and create 30 levels for 'Volcanicity'.
  • Take 30 of the game's hardest levels and use them in the 3rd unlockable package.
  • Find more music for these packs/get Jimpy to make them.

---

So yes, Cat Rescue is finished, Shanty Town is finished (including the boss), the game now has a total of 23 achievements (and more will be added possibly).

Everything has came together very nicely, what started off as a glitchy test, evolved in to a nice looking gameplay, which has now fully grown in to this beautifully frustrating game of control and skill, thank you everyone for your support, I hope to see you on Kongregate in a few weeks :3.

Ahh, no wonder I didn't think much had changed. >.<
I'm interested, as before.

I just spent about 10 minutes testing the old version. Fail. :p

Public Demo Now Up!!

There are a couple of glitches that are exclusive to this version that occurred while compiling some levels. The most obvious being that you have to unpause the game whenever you start a level pack, and for some reason Auto-Restart is Off by default, so be sure to turn that on :).

Have fun! Includes 5 levels from each pack!

I'll try to devise a reward for the first person to get an A or above on all level packs (including available unlocks), only 5 levels per pack so it shouldn't be too difficult ;).

I get lag upon death, and turning off sound doesn't stop game sounds. I also absolutely hate the death sound. Haven't played past practice.

I get lag upon death,
Turn limbs off... Make sure quality is set to low, the graphics aren't that intensive either but yeah, the Options are your friend..

and turning off sound doesn't stop game sounds.
Oh really? I hadn't noticed.

I've said this many times: Because of the AS' sound functions completely screwing up, all sounds had to be done with the interface, which means they're played by symbols rather than code, toggling the music with this was as easy as with code, sound effects, not so much.

I'll try to make an option that disables the death sounds, but I won't be able to turn the game sounds off...

I also absolutely hate the death sound.
Take it up with Jimpy.

Haven't played past practice.
I have... :rolleyes:

Useful comments are however appreciated. Preferably glitches that are actual glitches, and not just impossible fixes/gameplay features.

Level 3 on practice. The left side still isn't blocked off.

I've gotten an A on Practice, Easy and Medium so far. =)
Hard, Shanty (<3) and Cat Saver coming soon. :D

    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    That's about right. I'm just emulating that old-school RPG feel on the Game Boy system. If I had more free time, I would definitely want to add more things.
  • jonas jonas:
    I guess you folks were too old, but those games were our childhoods:p
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Well, I'm about to hit 30 this year, so I'm now officially old.
