Blockman Gets Twenty

Blockman Gets Twenty

Screenshots
Hey everyone. Following on from Vic Nibbler, I was looking for the next game to make that would be suitable for the Commodore Vic 20. James has kindly given his blessing for me to make a version of Blockman Gets which would be ideal for the humble 8-bit machine.

I'm tentatively titling it Blockman Gets Twenty and this time I'm targeting a Vic with an 8k (or greater) RAM expansion so I have some room to fit more in.

The core game play will be present although I have some ideas on the direction to take. I'll keep updated of progress, at the moment I am working through the ideas and the initial graphical look - the Vic has a limited palette of 8 colours (and another 8 in limited scenarios).

Latest Update

A version of Blockman Gets for the Commodore Vic 20.

Thought it was going to be an anniversary edition for a second! Is blockman anywhere near 20 yet?

Not even halfway!

I've been fixing bugs and adding stuff to TRSE (the dev tool I use) so I've not made a lot of progress on the game yet, but I have found the graphic style I want...

If memory allows - I have some things to hopefully make each level a little different

Sounds like fun!
One thing I've found is that anything "real-time" seems to break the game's pace.
Leaving any and all elements up to the player's movement speed, keeps things much more easy to plan ahead.

But .. yeah, interested to see what you come up with!!

I've not decided if I will have anything real time yet. I have ghosts, which may only move when you move.

BTW, the twenty in the title is a little more than just associate with the Vic. The target is going to be multiples of 20. I'll have 20 slots to fill up, and later 'buckets' for multiples of 20 (fill one bucket at a time).

Just a quick update, I’ve not abandoned this but with Halloween approaching I have become temporarily distracted. Normal blockman activity will resume after 31st.
