Almost 22 months after the last demo, I'm once again proud to announce the next demo of my Spectre Clone, Virtua Combat!

  • To activate grenades (level 10+) , press the "1" key, and "Control" to fire them afterwards
  • I'm only looking for bugs in SP Challenger and the menu system only, so:
  • Any problems due to commands entered in the in-game console don't count
  • Infrequent math error causes strange things to happen if you are facing exactly north/south, start moving then turning
  • [added] Some enemy tanks are stuck on the edge of the maps.
System Requirments (known to work on):
  • Windows 2000/XP
  • Linux users: Earlier test seemed to work under Wine, not guaranteed yet.
  • OpenGL compatible video card - works on TNT2 and up
Screenshots:

On level 6 the green squares looked like they were moving, and at the edge of the map I saw one of those odd-looking tanks (the ones that need 3 hits to kill) not moving, and wouldn't die or shoot.

Pretty great feel to the game, and looks very professional. I especially like the demo camera and the horizon effect.

Good game! Almost exactly like the old spectre :)

A few comments:

It's Balance not Balence (misspelling)

I'm not sure how the physics should work but sometimes I pass near an obstacle, and I get stuck, only way to move is to back out or turn and move. It's not the lack of movement issue, it's when I get stuck, I thought I'd have some room between my tank and the obstacle, but get stuck unexpectedly. Not sure if it's the original game's way. Too long ago for me to remember :)

Just played your game, it brings back all the memories of playing Spectre on a mac.

Anyway there is a bug with the menu. I took a screenshot:

All the menu screens have messed up text like that making it hard to start a game or do anything. Once I start a game the game itself runs fine.

It is running on Vista RTM. My video card is a 7900GTX GO.

Since Mac's are now running Intel processors with a Unix base operating system, it will be easier to port to a Mac...
