Star for saturn

Star is a puzzle game originally for the HP48 calculator.

You control little blue ball and you catch all the rings.

But the blue ball can only be stopped by a wall. You can also control a little green wall to help you stop the ball. The movable wall move the same way as the ball.

Button A select either the ball or the wall.

Button X restart the level.

12 levels to challenge and the first one to beat all levels get a free beer.

Let me know what you think ...

In the .zip : the binary that should be uploaded to the saturn via the PAR and the cd image (iso) that should be burn to a cd ...

didn't seem to want to work on my saturn, got a black screen with my rings and my level but that was it, tried it with my arp and without, also didn't make any difference if it was from the iso or the bin :(

You mean that you can't move ?

If something is dispayed ... then it should works ... ??

Tested with Satourne, seems nice. A seems to kill you though[/quote]

Do you mean that the red square representing the selection is horrible ?

Or the game crashed somewhere ?

All the sprite can be easily changed (btw source will ba available later ...)

Well, real test would be origional hardware.....It wont even load on mine, what country is it in? I can only do jap/us so if it's euro that's the prob. on my machine.

:(

What do you believe ?

My fault or Saturnin fault ?

I think it's rather Saturnin's fault ;)

But I couldn't load it in Satourne either, I'll try with another bios ...
 
Here is a slightly updated version, now working 99% on the real hardware.

Here the binary version to upload via a PAR cartridge

[attachmentid=1472]

An iso, for more convenience

[attachmentid=1473]

Thanks to SaturnOrbit for allowing me to quickly rebuild all this.

Finally, it's working on my Saturn!!! :banana

What was the reason it did not before?

Cool game, I like these sokoban like puzzle games. Well, I did need some time to get the game logic :blush: .

Great, thanks Reinhart!
 
Before :

Code:
ANGLE angz[] = {

	DEGtoANG( 0),

};

After :

Code:
ANGLE angz[] = {

	DEGtoANG( 0),	

	DEGtoANG( 0),	

	DEGtoANG( 0),	

	DEGtoANG( 0),	

	DEGtoANG( 0),	

};

:huh

PS : can I submit it to the contest ? :ph34r:

Of course you can! But I would appreciate if you use the time left (until 30th november) to apply some further polish, as one rule says:


don't submit something that has been released before, unless it shows significant updates

Things you could add:

- highscore table in backup RAM

(depending on time or number of moves)

- sound effects (RB_SaturnPCM works fine)

- maybe background CDDA

- background GFX

- title/credits/usage help screens

These are just some thoughts. The more polish, the bigger the advantage compared to other entries :cool: .

Good luck! :thumbs-up:
