I’ve decided for 1024×128, also teaming up with a skilled graphic artist. Here’s what we’ve got so far: (it’s FLASH, try it in your browser)
You are in charge of three different thief characters, each having a different field of expertise (camouflage, lockpicking, explosives).
Your goal is to traverse 4 levels without getting caught by guards, get a hold of (yet undefined) artifact and then backtrack through all the levels to the beginning.
Controls: LEFT / RIGHT – walk, UP / DOWN – switch character
The game is now feature complete, just waiting for more graphic assets to come in.
