A new version of the platform game engine VScreen was released. This engine, that comes with two exciting demo levels, makes it possible for beginning developers to create their own high-quality platform game. Sources are included, so it is a must-have for every MSX user (from newbie to advanced developer). The changes since the previous version, which was released two months ago:

  • Automatic bridge creation when hitting switches.
  • Trampolines (fun!!)
  • Display of text in the score bar . Text can be triggered by any event (collecting x stars, opening doors...).
  • Bug fixed in the replayer routine, now works with FM-Pac as well.
  • Stage exit implemented.
  • Updated demo stage GFX made by Sutchan (very cool ones, try "vsload sutchan" )

For more information on Vscreen or the other Maggoo creations, be sure to visit Maggoo's website. You can directly download this amazing MSX product right here. You can run the demo levels with "vsload newgame2" and "vsload sutchan" from a DOS prompt.

Wow Snout, you're getting faster and faster :-) thanks.

On a related note, I'd like to point out that I'm looking for people who would be interested to help with GFX (for tiles, sprites but also menu/title screens etc...) and mostly level design to produce the first real game based on this game engine.

So show us what you can do :-)
