Although busy working on his Dizzy-like-adventure “Dylan The Spaceman”, Chris Clarke has taken time out from developing this game to begin work on a side-scrolling shoot-em-up, provisionally titled “Kingdoms of Steam”.
A few words from Chris
“As well as a Dizzy Game Maker – Reality also has a horizontal Shoot Em up creator – had a quick look at this, using some background tiles from the Dylan the Spaceman game and some quickly drawn Steel Empire type / inspired sprites, I have a working demo level – perhaps this will be included as a bonus game with the CD release of Dylan the Spaceman.
The Shoot em up construction kit isn’t as good as the Dizzy game maker but better than SEUCK – the only two major flaws are – no in game music – and the enemy and background tiles are limited to 16 colours – whilst the main player ship can use a different 16. Also you can’t change the speed of the scrolling.”
If there’s enough interest in “Kingdoms of Steam” Chris says he would work on turning this into a full 4-5 level game. A two level demo has been released and you can download it as usual from the link below.
