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

Hello all, it's been a while. To say I've been hard at work on the game would be something of an understatement. A few weeks ago Freedom! Games came onboard as a publisher. It wasn't the first approach I had, but I liked these guys and signed up. Since then it's been full-on with a release date set ...

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

Hi All, Time to come up for air! I've just uploaded a new beta making the changes to a more 'roguelite' style of gameplay. This has been hard work. You can download it here . Please let me know what you think if you have a chance to give it a spin. In the meantime I'm off outside to try and catch so...

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

Hello all, Sorry - no updates from me for while. I have been hard at work though, as well as gathering feedback from the beta and figuring out how to respond to it. One main issue has arisen and it's that the 'meta-gameplay' as it stands (i.e. the way you move through the world, upgrade weapons and ...

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...
