The game code is old and i had to rewrite bits.

Report physics issues like jumping you find and other bits.

Great tunes and used some in my old game and replaced playonloops music ;)

Looks lovely.

Will purchase/donate when i get some money in the bank :)

There is a new update with many fixes and added bits so let me know how it runs :)

Fixed the trophy screen errors also.

It got a bit messy when the game where created with the old pixelstein engine.

Thanks for all the feedback mark..

You help the game get better ;)

Darn thats the mobile code that dont get sorted properly …

Going to look thru it and make a better help screen.

The engine is supposed to detect windows,linux or chromebook or android mobile device and sort all data.

But the blame is on me as i have bin lazy with the 8 breed updates and checking everything properly.

The game have pretty much bin dead in the wather until lately so i have bin a bit lazy with updates on it.

But i will improve the update rate now when i have people that buys it also.

Iam one man small indi dev so iam a bit slow sometimes ;)

You guys that motivate me to keep them coming :)

The screen you show is the android player screen so thats even more weird?

Its used when playtesting on android ?

When i know 2.3 works better so will i release a new demo also.

Could you try version 2.3 and let me know if its better for you?

Fixed and added a few things also :)

I develop the game on a windows surface i7 with windows 10 64 bit ?

So weird the error happens?

The latest have auto pickup already?

Thats really weird ?

This is a hack because its originally a mobile game for smaller screens.

Iam going to see wath i can do about it ;)

Missed that one..

Its very annoying because its a update to my compiler and editor that messes up sprite depths.

I had to manually go thru all sprites and check them.

I updated from classic to studio and it is still in development and a bit buggy.

Thats me being unclear there in the game.

Complete a map gives one skull

kill all one skull

all gold one skull

all scrolls one skull.

so you can complete one map and all gold and kill all for three skulls.

or 

so you can complete one map and all scrolls and kill all for three skulls.

Iam going to make it more clear in next update.

I might have to make doors enemies opens be unlocked :)

Did not think of that so far.

Iam working on a update so could you let me know how it plays later?

Its windowed and now do you auto collect all pickups to not break the flow in the gameplay.

I had to fix a bunch of weird new bugs because they updated my compiler and ide so many old commands where broken now.

I use sprite commands for buttons and they have changed something in the depth sorting that broke some of my code.

So if you find any broken grafix let me know…..

I will try to make some more updates during the week.

It is 50 + maps made by hand that get mirrored and flipped randomly to generate as random experience as possible.

This where my first experiments with some random generation so there is probably some hickups sometimes.

And the hardcoded parts to make it play better on computers is a bit messy.

Sadly so where 8 breed and pixelstein written and developed for mobile phones from the start and later converted to work on computers as well.

Aiming for mobile play is probably one of my largest mistakes since i started doing small games again.

Toons of work for peanut pay :(

Thats why i develop its dark bob for computers only now.

Sadly so is the source code a bit messy in 8 breed and pixelstein after upgrading tools and compiler 2-3 times during its development.

The tool i use to make games upgraded with a visual placement editor for 2d assets during the later development of the 2 games.

And messed up the code when edited in it at the start,it had autotabs and things like that so the code have random line spacing and bits :)

More irritating for me to work with now :)

But iam actually going thru the code of 8 breed now and trying to clean it up for a update later on.

Please report any bugs you find so will i try to fix them.

While i ported the 2 games to computers so did i also have many forced updates on google play for them so i could have messed some bits up.

Cheers and thanks for the feedback ;)

Iam implementing a trophy system like in pixelstein and got delayed.

Let me know if you guys want a early release anyway?

Its not working but logging some data for the Trophys.

Cheers play8bitars.

Love your stuff and use them again :)

I do use modified assets in the game.

I use assets from.

Kronbits.

Moose stache.

I cant find the name of the artist that made some very nice background templates i use in some of the menues so cant credit this artist?

The zipp where only named matriax free assets????

The rest is painted by me so far.

When i use assets in a new projects so do i try to pay some extra to the artists once again.

I know now why i use fullscreen.

The mouse controls for turning got messed up in windowed.

But i will try to look in to solving it sometime later on.

That is pretty simple to do i think.

Have to check it..

But could release a windowed and full screen version if i cant solve it in the same app.

Iam happy to see some early birds supporting the game by buying early builds :)

I only want to say thank you and much more fun stuff is coming and will be added.

Hi xaby i will try to look in to it in the future :)

I do not want to sound grumpy but iam swamped with work and other bits right now ;)

Thanks for the feedback.

The game is still in its very early stage so much of it is placeholders and are going to be fixed.

The lack of work on it is more or less that my payed games neads my attention and i am a single dev that also work fulltime at a factory :)

I have to support my paying customers first and then update free games ;)

I have used libgdx,unity and c++ before and switched to the current one to focus on mobiles and try it out.

The current framework makes it very simple to publish on ios and android and charge no extra fees after purchasing it for 60 gbp/us dollars.

But i have looked on godot and unity and are ready for a switch soon maybe?

Made it more clear on the main page.

I will add more at a later stage.

Use as you please…

I neaded a plain and simple font for my game and wanted to share it.

Its a retrurn favor to all great people on itch that share free stuff i have used for prototypes and more  :)

Thats pretty much that i coded the engine to use simple flags when compiling for wath version it is.

I will look in to it for next update but it will be at a later stage :)

Wrapping up a playable prof of concept alpha for its dark bob game :)

Thanks for the feedback :)

Thank you :)

It inspires me to keep on working on more in the future :)

Iam using your asset pack as a base for alien gfx in this new game.

Ok i credit you in the help screen of it?

Want to credit when your assets help me alot.

Iam going to do a larger update to improve performance on more systems.

More options on sync and vsync etc.

More clear controls.

Wath updates do you request.

Iam thinking about updating and repainting all artwork in to color art.

Also add a progress dungeon map betwen dungeons.

I love the gb colors but sadly so are we very few and the downloads are so far disapointing to me.

Do you want me to have two versions?

Give me feedback.

Looks very nice :)

Made a first mockup for Linux and windows users.

I might have forgot to add gamepad support on some screens also i have to check :)

Do you think this is clear and still in right style?

Have to add it in pixelstein and 8 breed so wanted a neutral style..

Supported a artist on itch by purchasing a gui asset for 5 us dollars so iam on a minus in earnings again ;)

But think its fun to support others when i can.

Purchased and supported ;)

I will look in to it during the week :)

I should manage a update by thursday or friday..

Maybe i have to make it more clear in the image at the boot ?

The game engine used in pixelstein and 8 breed where originally coded for android hardware so i do forget sometimes  :)

Iam actually rewriting a new toolset and game engine more aimed at retro games for Linux and windows.

Or more or less aimed first for computers and work on android devices also.

The old engine where coded from the ground up for mobile phones where i later ported it to computers that made it a mess.

Thats why the old help screen is a mess also.

Will put together a specific control info screen for computers.

I work night shift at the factory thats why it will take a few days.

Thanks for your feedback.

Opened the board for any suggestions and feedback.

So had to remove the comments as i have to choose.

A forums board where more requested.
