Jumpman Forever Level 1 Screenshots
I posted these on Facebook and Google+, so I thought I'd toss them up here: These are Work In Progress screenshots of Level 1: "Out Of Retirement" for Jumpman Forever. These are fully working level shots, not one of the "workbench" test levels - after I figured out how to improve the backgrounds (making the game elements "pop" a little better), it's all pretty much coming together. There's still some bugs here and there - for instance, for a split second when Jumpman appears, he thinks he's on a rope. Not game breaking, but, annoying, since it overrides the fairly cool spawn animation for Jumpman.
Now, one of the things about tossing up screenshots - the minute you do, you notice "things" that are wrong. Internally, the game is tracking the score and the number of lives left. On screen? Not so much - gonna have to add that :-)
Later today, I should be posting the new Jumpman Forever trailer, which will show a little bit of gameplay footage from the "Out of Retirement" and "Rocket, Rocket!" Levels. "Rocket, Rocket!" is sort of fun, for a trivial reason: at the beginning of Jumpman, it has a level it auto-runs through, showing all sort of stuff that never happens in the game. For instance, a rocket chases Jumpman across the screen. Great... except, there's no level where it actually happens. Well, I've corrected that ;-) Enjoy the screenshots, and look for a video, hopefully before the day is over :-)
