Alpha Test - Tech Demo
Hi, I've decided to do a small project aside from my main one, doing a little game I always wanted to do. Arkab is a puzzle game where you must shoot a ball to bounce as many times as possible on the blocks. It's the only way to gather enough energy so the vortex gate will open, sucking the ball and letting you warp to the next stage.
Keep in mind it's only an Alpha test of the game, containing only 8 levels.
For now, it'll be closed source, so there's only a Win32 binary ATM.
(Not that you'd be able to compile it easily on your own anyways, since you'd need to compile some libs I modified myself. :P)
You need a GPU capable of Pixel Shader 2.0 AFAIK, since the game is very pretty with them.
Download from Mediafire. (CG Dlls included)
Sorry for using a Download site, it's 13MB big, the uploader here doesn't work with it, and none other better download sites worked. So if someone can mirror it for me, I'd really appreciate it.
Or download it from a.cc directly in 2 files:
Download part1.rar from A.cc
Download part2.rar from A.cc
CG Dlls in case you need them.
So, the reason I'm releasing this is that I want to test various things.
I want to hear opinions about the gameplay since I'm at the stage of adding whatever I think I could need.
Some of you might have noticed that song really isn't mine(it's from Super Mario Galaxy), so I would like to know if someone wants to make one or two for the game(I know there are various composers here), or direct me to some free songs(which I really doubt). The game will be free of charge, and I can't really pay anyone to compose one, since I have no ways to make a payment online.
Other feedback is really appreciated too. Do you like the quality of the visuals? The gameplay? Everything is welcome.
Have fun playing it as I much as I had making it.
