Crabator

Postby rodot » Sun Aug 03, 2014 1:09 pm

Crabator is the fist game I made to showcase Gamebuino's features. I'm taking it out of the Gamebuino's examples as it's not really... exemplary. The code is a real mess as I kept adding features without restructuring.

Description
Crabator is an intense action game where you kill crabs to make money to buy weapons to kill crabs to make money, etc. but watch out, the more crabs you kill the more they are. Each small crab killed gives you $1, each boss gives you $5. Once you have at least $5 you can buy a crate which will give you half a heart and upgrade your weapon. If you run out of ammunition, your weapon is downgraded.

The best and my favourite game on the gamebuino!
My high score is a measly 80 though

Thanks! :)
I didn't go over 120 yet... a friend of mine made more than 200 points! above 100-200 (I don't remember the exact number) the difficulty is constant, so it's just a matter of endurance... and luck, as there is only bosses spawning if you reach a high level ^^

This reminds me of a certain Dreamcast game... I can't quite remember it.

Great game, one of my favourites on the Gamebuino.

Makes me think of Vlambeer's Nuclear Throne somehow :lol:

Would you mind if I were to use your code to make a game of my own? Or do you think I would be better off starting from scratch? How much space would be left for sounds and cuteness? LOL, cutscenes. Also, fyi, i'm making (well, going to make) an attempt at a port of Alien Shooter. (MAKE 'EM BLEED!)
[EDIT] I had a look at the file, it says it's 67 kb. How does the gb even run that?

Sure you can use it, but the code is pretty messy so you might prefer starting from scratch ^^
The .hex files are larger because there is extra info in there (addresses, checksums and stuff), not only the binary data.
