Recommended Posts

Check out our first completed game, "Lander Forever"! First some screenshots:

Now the downloads. Go to the main page to see the comic: www.cruciblesoftware.net Or just get it directly here: binary / source I did the coding, and my friend Andrew did the graphics. (his website) He's currently living in Japan, so this game proves that international collaborative efforts over the Internet can be successful. [wink] Play the game, tell your friends, and let us know whatcha thinks! Enjoy!

I can tell you that I spent five months researching this game by flying real spaceships and landing them on platforms all around the galaxy. I worked out the precise equations for triangular spaceship handling and put them in this game. How the ship handles is as real as it gets. [smile]

Anyway, glad you enjoyed it. There are fourteen end-game taunts in total. Try to collect them all!

Meh, incomplete. Good start, but incomplete.
No fuel burning? No winds? As was stated before -- too easy.

What about increased gravity with fuel burning? Thatd be intense.

and what is this "A winner is you!"

"Sorry mario, the princess is in another castle."

yeesho

Hehe. Yeah, the cartoon is only a joke. [smile] I was worried that it might be a deter some folks, but you should be totally fine.

And the game is pretty simple, but we just wanted to get something done! We've started other projects that were more complex, but never finished them. BTW, those taunts at the end of each round were supposed to make the game a little more interesting. They're mostly phrases from video game pop culture.

We had thought about adding a fuel gauge, but I think adding a fuel gauge and changing the gravity at the same time is a great idea. Maybe I should add in a couple of planets floating randomly placed with their own gravitational pull. An idea for version 2.0. [wink]

Thanks to all for the feedback. It's good to get some outside opinions.

I know the original lunar lander is nothing more, but without any whistles and bells this version seems to be a little incomplete. Maybe I just miss an animation here and there, for example the explosion.

How about expanding the gameplay. Not only land on a platform and master the gravity. How about scolling caves, enemies, doors, ... Hm, I think I am talking about the game "Thrust" here :) Sorry, I just enjoyed that one so much.

Well, however, the controls are fine, feeling is great, it's fun to fly with this ship! Keep on this good work!

Heh :))

Give me to guess...

It's a "lander" for ZX Spectrum (BASIC) & Crazy Gravity for Win95...
I'm right?

I think it need some edit.

p.s. sorry for my english... ;)
