8 posts in this topic

I started the whole game: Santa in Trouble, because of this forum, when I downloaded KirbyPC. Now my game have evolved, from 320x240 in DOS with Allegro, to 512x384 in Windows with DirectX. I''m very proud of it, because it has something many games havn''t got now a days: Game play! Check out the screeshots: http://members.nbci.com/nicke84/screenshots.htm The game is near done. And will be(hopefully) published by Crystal-Interactive! I want to thank them here for contacting me! Thank you! But check out the screenshots, and tell me what you think. I really hope you like them. And remember they are only from level 1 and 4, there are much more too the game ie. many other enemies, other tiles, more advance maps. And it''s a nice xmas game, that''s doesn''t learn people to kill(like Postal). MindWipe
