code red (metroid/castlevania type game) *postponed due to broken macbook*

Code Red

i started writing out a script for an movie. but then decided that it would be better fit for a game. ive just started and its my first iphone/ipod touch game but i have experience in making games (in windows). the game will be similar to a castlevania/metroid/shadow complex type game. the story is completely original. (it promise will have better grammar and spelling then i use in my everyday posts)

its bassicly you wake up in the huge prison type laboratory were you were a test subject and you have no memory of anything (yes i know cliched) the main goal is to get out. but the story progresses as the game continues. including finding out that you and 24 other humans were us soldiers were put into a secret project called code red. a expirement that makes humans much more agile. and stronger. however they are flawed as they require a certain element only found in human blood to keep their strength and agility. and you have all escaped

some gameplay info.

you have a energy bar. near your health bar the slowly depletes the lower it gets the weaker you are (as in attacks and agileness) and the only way to get it back up is the drink a guards blood (guards are all over the prison trying to stop the escapees. if you drink their blood you regain energy but you dont gain the exp you get if you kill em (every guard you kill you get exp and you can gain levels and you can unlock new powers and abilities)

the game controls with a 2 arrow buttons (left and right) (i got rid of the virtual joystick. because before my macbook broke i realized that the virtual joystick didnt really work well and since your only going left and right i decided that arrow buttons would be better) and there is a jump button (and you can press the arrow buttons while jumping to go in a certain direction) and two attack buttons (you can use the two to do combo attacks)

(also please keep in mind this is a 2d game similar to the older metroids. or castlevanias.)

the game is also being made entireley out of code im not using torque or anything like that

*IMPORTANT PLEASE READ* hey im sorry i haven't posted on this in a while its mainly cause im kindave upset about this. the game has been postponed indefinitely because my macbook pro broke a while ago (it fell out of my car) so until i get a new macbook this game wont be made. im sorry for anyone who was interested in this. but ive been raising money for a new macbook pro since it broke so it shouldn't be too long until i can start working on it again

Might wanna work on being a little less vague. Definitely interested in seeing those screenshots, however.

im not quite ready yet to give screenshots. but ill give some info on the story.

its bassicly you wake up in the huge prison type labrotory were you were a test subject and you have no memory of anything (yes i know cliched) the main goal is to get out. but the story progresses as the game continues. including finding out that you and 24 other humans were us soldiers were put into a secret project called code red. a expirement that makes humans much more agile. and stronger. and you have all ecscaped

you have a energy bar. near your health bar the slowly depletes the lower it gets the weaker you are (as in attacks and agileness) and the only way to get it back up is the drink a guards blood (guards are all over the prison trying to stop the ecscapeees. if you drink their blood you regain energy but you dont gain the exp you get if you kill em (every guard you kill you get exp and you can gain levels and you can unlock new powers and abillities)

the game controls with a virtual joystick (im still decided wether i should keep it though) and there is a jump button and two attack buttons (you can use the two to do combo attacks)

Code Red sounds good, you should stick with that. It might take you months to make the game itself though since it's not that easy...

Upcoming iPhone Games: World of Midgard,Paper Monsters, LostWinds,The First Attempt,Blade Slinger, Kale in Dinoland, Prevail
