It's an incentive to stop people killing it ;P.

I got stuck in the first cave at the end with the two huts and the tiny little hole. :( :D
That was the end of the game so far, but I've been working on the last part of the level, which I will display once I've added the second cave ;P.

Another thing, when you're in "motor run" as I call it with the animation where Winky's feet spin super fast, if you're in that, the jump is delayed, so I often fall because I'm running fast, and then I try to jump but it doesn't jump till a second after. Don't know if it's on purpose or anything, so...
That's part of the jumping glitch, supposedly fixed, except for steap hills.

Thanks for the comments!

I'm back!
I changed it to Space for now because Enter was screwing it up in Flash's built-in Player, Enter acts as a shortcut to play the movie, meaning that it treats the game like a cartoon and skips through the frames, which is not what I want D:.

Doesn't seem to affect it online though, which is just as well, I'll add it in again another time ;O.
Yeah, I know that, I encountered it as well, I meant that you should add it when the game is finished :p.

  • Fixed bug where Winky's speeding animation only played in one direction.

Enjoy!

Good lord.

I should make something like that happen in the fight against Jazz Hands ;P, or the final boss at least.

KNOWN BUG:

  • Leaving the segment of the level you're in after losing health will reset your health.

I still can't run to the left with the swirly feet.
Same. Alot of the changes don't show for me.

And are you suppose to be able to play the speeding animation while in mid air?

EDIT: There we go, fixed now!

Awesome, :).

Nice dust effects, but you should make them last a bit longer, like when you are in "motor run" form and you turn around, there should be a slide and larger dust effect maybe.

There were some points where my guy was walking through the dirt into the ground. :eek:


Good job! :thup:


I was bored... grrr, it took me 4 times of winning to get fast enough to screenshot it, lol.

The dust is fine unless there are more complaints.

Will fix those, thanks.

The first part of level 2 is well under way, though I will have to keep alot of the interactives to myself for now, you'll have to wait until release for now ;P.

As for upcoming interactives, I plan eventually to release a Demo version, which will include 3 levels, with an undecided boss at the end of the third.

You will however get screenshots of levels, progress and other stuff. You may also get interactives designed specifically for testing certain added features (such as the ability to spit stuff out of your mouth).

Thanks everyone for testing level 1, I'll most likely have a couple of screenshots of level 2 later this weekend.

Boss Theme

One of the ideas I had in mind when making this game was the music. I'm aiming to find an artist that can make some very catchy arcade songs, most of which will be based off of existing, well-known tunes, but mixed up to suit their respective environments.

I figured I'd give song-making a try for this one, so I decided to do the Boss Theme, and chose a tune that I know very well (the boss theme from Jazz Jackrabbit), after some work, this is what I came up with:

http://labs.topaz-games.com/winky/Boss1NO.mp3

The original had a different lead in a higher octave, more of an echo + some other jazzy effects and more beats.

I kept this one simple, but think it turned out quiet nicely.

---

As for the game itself, Winky now has proper jump animations, he can shoot stuff out of his mouth, and 2 of the enemies have been scripted (one of which will have different sprites for when you face it in the day-time and in the night-time).

Comments on the song is appreciated, though I probably won't be using it in the game unless I can't find someone to do a better job ;P.

Nice music. But in the game, don't make it too loud. Right now, the song I think has too much focus on it. Makes you concentrate more on listening than playing. :D The sounds stand out too much, so it should be used only for bosses. :thup:
