[ Game -> Article ] - More info on Game: Killa

You might have seen this in a few threads on the forums, but I thought I'd post it up. Here's Killa - The Game, made by DAC member Winston Henry.

I'd like to present you a small RPG game written in Visual Basic 6. I'm the only one who worked on it, so don't expect, I don't know, Fallout for example. I started to make the game 7 years ago, soon after I finished Fallout 2 many times. I wanted to feel the taste of making and designing my own game. So, here it is! I finally released it in public. I hope you'll have fun, for this is what the game is made for. For fun. Enjoy!

The purpose of the game is to find that evil boss and put an end to him. After you enter your name and set your primary skills, you'll find yourself on a map that looks from bird's perspective. You are represented by a small red plus sign in upper left corner. Now, the boss should be found and dealt with. Click with a mouse somewhere on the map and you'll get goin' to that destination. But the boss isn't the only one on the whole map! While you are searching for him, you'll encounter different kinds of enemies and outlaws. The weakest one of them is, definitely, the bandit. He is moving near you, about upper left corner of the map in a radius of about 3,5 cm or 1,4 inches. He'll probably be the first one you'll encounter. Further more, the enemy is getting stronger and tougher as you move diagonally on the map, that is, as you venture towards the lower right corner of the map along map's diagonal. Outside that map's diagonal are various "special" enemies that are MUCH stronger than these "ordinary" enemies on the map's diagonal. So now don't even dare to wander "outside map's diagonal" icon_razz!

The game is, by the way, saved automatically before every combat and before entering each city.

Regarding the detailed description of character creation at the game begining, that is, setting the primary skills' values (strength, endurance...), everything is described in detail in the very game. Consult the descriptions in the game regarding that. I won't describe that here.

The game is played with music, by the way. Start Winamp (or whatever) and enjoy! But if the silence offers you greater enjoyment, do whatever makes you happy, of course smile).

There are 20 different weapons, many different armors and several other items, and there are over 15 different enemies in the game. There is also "Best killas" list system which records high scores that vary from being "the healthiest", "the fastest" (in completing the game), "the richest" and so on... That's specially made for all of you who like to compete. An entry has already been added to the "Best killas" list for you to have a point of comparison of how well did you do when you have completed the game. There are cheats, also icon_razz. You can get them if you can make every main menu item red! Here are also some screenshots for your viewing pleasure (ignore the graphics icon_mrhappy)

That's the complex starting character creation window.

That's the combat window with you (yes, you're the one on the right icon_mrhappy) currently battling a bandit.

And that last one was one of the cities. Pretty cool, huh icon_razz?

So, that's about it.

And the link to download, get and play the game is here ==>

Easily one of the best games I have ever played and a stunning example of the innovation only an independent game developer can bring to the table.
