Maggoo has released a new version of his fantastic MSX Platform game engine VScreen. In this new version the following things were changed:

  • Two new bonus types: Power (invincible) and Life (1up)
  • Independant movement and collision properties for NPC (any mix is now possible)
  • New collision types:
    0) Normal (jump on NPC to kill)
    1) No collision (no collision possible)
    2) Platform (treat NPC as a moving 'platform')
    3) Deadly (any contact kills main character)
    4) Bouncy (bounce on NPC but can't kill it)
  • Parallax 2x8x8 scrolling (tiles 165 & 166)
  • F1 = Pause Key
  • Support for Joystick enabled
  • Basic menu available to selecting frequency/controls/music (music isn't fully functional yet)
  • Links between levels is now possible, up to 10 different exits per stage to different levels
  • Fixed yet another bug in the moving platforms
  • Separated movement types and collision type for NPC
  • Possibility to add new control types (i.e: swimming, flying, sliding), althought not activated yet due to lack of GFX

As you can see, a lot of exciting new features have been added to Vscreen once again. You can download the latest version of Vscreen right here. The package includes some nice demonstration levels and full source code. For more information you can visit Maggoo's website

Yeah, great features... I hope, and suspect, some nice games will be made with this magical 'tool'...
