pog! Just trying it out, can't hear what they're saying, but the game plays great. (I'm trying both 6581 and 8580 SIDs on Ultimamte 64 - but I'll try enabling one at a time and see if it improves it)
So, I really want to like the game, but I am confused over a few things. The manual says I should find artifacts, I found an artifact, and sent my ship into it (assuming collecitng artifacts was the same as anything else)... but no, the artifact was destroyed and my ship lost half its shield. I didn't find another artifact in the next 3 galaxies... What do you have to do? shoot them?
Also, I get 1-3 gold per ship destroyed, but the next level laser costs 4500+ gold. Seems like I won't ever play this game long enough to upgrade that.
Also the first level laser seems perfectly good enough to kill every enemy I found until the 4th Galaxy ( I gave up at that point because there didnt seem to be any variety in the dogfighting ). Enemies dont seem to be able to do anything to even your basic shield, unless you get attacked by 3 of them and you stop your ship and do nothing.
Are there any plans to maybe balance the game a bit or add some variety? It's super fun at the beginning.
Another bug spotted... Thanks so much!
I did some refactoring in the lives code... then forgot to call the lives reset on the start of the game... great spot, fixed in v1.3.1!
The in browser version i'll need to fix later, but the download files are up!
How do you save the game on Metal Warrior 4 - I tried using the cartridge then Save - Slot 1 - and it won't load from it - I tried using the disk - and inserting a blank disk before saving - and the same - loading any save doesnt work - and nothing gets saved to the blank disk.
(Using Real HW + Ultimate 2+)
Please note that 1.3.0 is only available here on itch, the version currently on Android is not the most up to date - so for testing please only play in the browser on the Thrust 30 page here on itch (it will open full screen when you go to the page and click Run Game.
Please be aware there's a bug in the highscore table still in 1.2... if you get the highest score on the highscore then the scores don't get pushed down properly. I'll need to make a patch and release a v1.3
1.3 is now available. Highscores should be fixed now!
I've seen the issue, and fixed it and uploaed a fix for it a few days ago - I'm not sure but maybe itch.io caches old files or something.. could you try a new download and see if it's fixed for you? I've noticed you're not the only one who's seen this bug either. Thanks for playing and letting me know.
edit: I see the issue too, ye it's after you play the game once - I'll patch it in the next release, thanks again.
The game took me about 5 months working in my spare time - I developed a large portion of the game live on Twitch most Mondays. You can follow here : Hayesmaker64 on Twitch
