MEGA Challenge - 09. LEDA

Topic: Software

Entry number nine for the MEGA Challenge comes from John Hassink (DemonSeed) and Paco Santos Ramirez (EVPON). LEDA is a vertical shooter like Aleste, but then in 64x48 pixels. Here, clearly the advantage of this particular challenge shows: multilayers! It's therefor a cute little shooter, supported by FM-PAC music. There was a brief demonstration of this game last week in Den Dolder, and now you get to play it yourself!

GREAT GAME DEMONSEED!! You have to port it to C and enlarge the window
I'm pretty sure it can work at the same frame rate in a 128x96 area.

Congrats! You made it! Finaly some sleep for you Smile2

Great gfx, great music!

@MRC guys: Where are those frickin' screenshots. Al those entries for the challenge feel a bit empty without a nice screenshot. That can' t be too hard to do.

Thank you to all. The merit is for John, he worked hard against the clock.

Much thanks for playing the game and for your kind reactions!

Unfortunately, LEDA was far from finished. Lots of things that were to be implemented didn't make it to the final cut.

In a later version which I really intend to make (especially if people would want to play it) I wish to include:

* More stages than just one (!)

* Graphics from Robert Vroemisse a.k.a. yum as well

* Storyline, visuals

* Sound effects

One of my goals being to learn how to properly program in C, to me the perspective drawn by ARTRAG sounds exciting and a splendid opportunity to get into it.

So, it has been 2 months and I wonder:
Which ones of you have managed to beat the game?

I understood people found the final boss to be extremely hard.

I have a version laying around here that has an introduction, title screen and three stages. I can send it if you'd like. There were some plans to move this to C and have a 128x96 screen.
