    Die Hurrrrr

    This is my first of hopefully many LD submissions, and I decided to take on the king of all action movies, Die Hard. I instantly thought of Contra (for the NES) for some reason, and I had planned on making this a vanishing-point psudeo-3d-in-2d style game (like the Contra base stages), but it’s turned into a vertical twitch scroller. Controls are mouse-and-keyboard; you control the crosshairs with the mouse, while moving with the arrow pad. Since I suck at spriting, the John McClane sprite bears some resemblence to the Contra characters as I redrew them.

    The game will feature multiple stages with (hopefully) humorous cutscenes between each. The level files have a simple flat file format, so making custom levels would be possible. There is also a rudimentary particle engine.

    Yes, there will be unicorns.

    Back to the grind!
