Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

One 'bug' I have discovered is that sometimes I disappear off the top of the screen and can still fly left and right (unless this isn't a bug and have become invisible). I have managed to replicate this now ;) still not entirely sure what's causing it but it is something to do with colliding with e...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

Hey there - no worries at all, I appreciate the continued input! I should be able to take a look at that bug as I have an Xbox controller. I haven't posted any updates as I've been flat-out working on it. Achievements are done now, as well as a settings page and user-defineable keys (including a 'cl...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

I wonder if disappearing off the screen is either linked to the recoil from a weapon or you are bounced off screen when bumping into a baddie? I even managed to have just the board showing on screen in my last game. May or may not be linked to the mutants? Will try and identify exactly when it happ...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

Had a go with the gatling gun and I quite like it - recoil isn't too bad and fire rate is good. Great! Did you find the Uzi yet? With regards to making the map clearer - perhaps a mini-tutorial to show what each icon means or a mini animation that you get if you hover over them? Saying that - as yo...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

I think I was just being a bit thick. Definitively missed releasing the guardian on the earlier levels, as well as the significance of the key at the side of the map. Doh! :lol: well - if you think of anything that would have made things clearer I'm all ears! Getting used to the grenade launcher - ...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

Hey there - thanks again for playing this so much and taking the time to give me the feedback. It's really, really helpful! If the first weapon you've unlocked is the grenade launcher then there's an awful lot you've missed! I'm wondering why that was - do you think it's not clear where to go on the...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

Yep - they are definitely not quite as zippy! I read quite a lot about Defender when I started this game and one of the things I never realised before was that the reason the baiters are such utter bastards is that they move relative to the player, rather than relative to the world, making them pre...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

Played again tonight using an xbox pad and played well! Still would like to compare to Defender controls. I like the way that the games saves your position on the flow chart/trees you don't have to start at the beginning each time. I'm sure I saw a baiter chasing me at one point. Good fun game and ...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

One small request (feel free to ignore) - I can't help getting that old Defender vibe and Defender style controls would be great. There's nothing quite like flicking fire and the pressing reverse as you are zooming along. Thank you very much for trying out the game! I'm really glad you liked it. Yo...

Re: Jetboard Joust: Next-Generation Retro Arcade SHMUP - Steam Page Now Up!

One of the things I’ve been doing recently is improving the algorithm I use to calculate explosive damage in Jetboard Joust . I’ve mentioned this in passing before but, as I’ve spent quite some time on it throughout the course of the project, I felt it warranted a devlog entry all to itself. So here...
