[NDS GAME] Bilou : Apple Assault
« on: August 16, 2010, 08:07:34 PM »
Nickname: PypeBros
Projet name: Bilou : Apple Assault
From: Belgium
Division: GAME
Platform: NDS
Original enter: YES
Support Motion: NO
In last NEO Compo this project have won in the top 10: NO

Project description:
(v1.2)

Bilou and Bouli have crashed on a strange planet. While Bouli is repairing the Astrocruiser's repellor shield, Bilou (the blue ball) has to keep hordes of crazy applemen away ! The game feature the four fields surrounding the cruiser that you must clean up so that Bouli can finish his job and provide you a safe retreat for further exploration. Stun the applemen by stomping them (A). That will provide you more punch power to dispatch the assaulters further away (B).
In each assault wave, the applemen will come back with reinforcement. How long will you stand ?

How to use:
- download the game
- Control Bilou with the D-Pad, jump with (A), punch with (B).
- you can build up your punch power faster if you press (A) again when bouncing on applemen
- yellow worms can't be dispatched, but they can "help" Bilou building punch power while staying at safe distance from apples
- once you've gathered enough power (stars will start appearing on your punch bar), you'll shoot a devastating shuriken instead of merely punching.
- the more bounces you chain without touching the ground, the more you'll score.
- visit the "apple assault thread" if you need more instructions.
- engine sources available on project CVS.

Cool - I like the game a little better now that I've had longer to play it than back during the compo.  ::sm-09.gif::

Oh yes. That's partly why I like it more... especially the music. I'm one of those people who likes to crank the music in a game up. Games just don't seem right without music to me. I know people who turn OFF the music as they say it interferes with the game. That ain't me.  :D

That game is so much cool now, and that red apples are still the most original enemies that I've seen xD.

PypeBros I hope to see "Bilou 64" next compo  ~sm-63.gif~.gif

Wow. That's more than challenging ! ...

I think I'll stick to my Bilou : Deep Ink Pit milestone and see where it brings me ...

Long after Apple Assault, I've been working in the School Zone on a speedrun-oriented game named School Rush which I usually present as "Donkey Kong Country-like running in Raymanish world".



Don't hesitate to post your score with #BilouSchoolRush on twitter, as I don't have an official leaderboard feature yet.
