Grelox (Zillion inspired)
« on: November 18, 2017, 03:21:44 AM »
Along with plans for an MSX version (slightly different gameplay and graphics), I've been tinkering with a Windows Grelox. I'm aiming for a sort of Master System feel and it is (obviously) inspired by the brilliant Zillion.

Here's the first bit of progress:

Here's some floaty orbs I added a few days ago.


All the main structure of the game is working now. Making maps is easy enough, but the main hurdle is coming up with more varied enemy types so that not everything is a patrolling, shooting thing.

That looks great!  I love that the character here seems a lot more nimble than Zillion's cast.

BTW, Zillion was one of my favorites growing up - I must've beat that game like 500 times bitd. It was just a notch below Phantasy Star, Dragons Trap and RType in my list of essential SMS games, so great choice for inspiration.

Nice work! I might change that "computer read" stinger at the end of the computer sequence though, it's a bit grating!

Yeah it's just a temp. It's hard to find a good source of Master System sound effects to sample.

It makes me appreciate all the great sound rips from PC Engine games for sure.

Agreed—nimble and a rapid slashing weapon...very kool.
