I Wanna be The Boss Hunter - V0.4.5 [INCLUDES GMK FILE]
« on: January 12, 2014, 04:21:46 pm »


DISCLAIMER: Cool Background boss not included! All of this stuff was abandoned 2 years ago and does not reflect on my current capabilites as an Artist! Actual Game may not live up to graphical expectations!


Hello fine folks! Been 2 years since I've last been around. I was a participant over at the YoSniper's 2014 contest, unfortunately my game "I Wanna Be The Boss Hunter" wasn't very successful.
I made a few attempts at improving it, but eventually lost my throttle at making it and left it to die. After I bumped into the original files again 2 years later I decided to let my work help someone else.

As of this day I make the latest version of Boss Hunter 0.4.5 with all it's unfinished mess bugs and unplayable glitches completely free to use in any way you like(ReadMe included in the file details on this). Take it as a "glorified engine"
Tear it apart to see how it works, use its assets and coding, fuck it up, or finish it. Do with it as you please. But first I'd let you with a few notes you may wish to use.

-The Pack includes version 0.4.4 which is the latest "stable" version of the game, able to be played till conclusion. (Or not)

-It also includes version 0.4.5 as a GML and GMK files, unfortunately, glitches of all the sort plague these versions and are the result
of me leaving work half finished. But it includes a couple more scenes and an unfinished boss with over 20 different attacks.

-If you want Music to work, you either need to get SuperSound, or change the way music works.

-The game was originally built with Game Maker 8.0, if it works in the newer versions is up to you to find out.

-I don't own all the assets, more on this on the Readme included in the pack.

Thank you. I'm not a great artist on the graphics part, being the majority of them drawn by myself. It's the best I could do with only Game Maker's integrated "paint".

So i tested it. I have stoped at boss. It looks nice and the Enemys are also cool. but what i realise is that u can save every pixel if u want. I mean i can save off screen or jump over jump like Boshy and don't need really dodge this missles. I think u need to put some BulletDestroyObjects on some Screens and If u want to change controls u get error message about sound or something is missing. Keep up your work :)

-Well... I don't really get the saving problem, if it isn't attached to any hotkey then it shouldn't be possible. I'll take a better look and possibly change it.
-Jump over jump like boshy??? Wha'd ya mean?
-No need to dodge the rockets you say... Actually you're supposed to stay the hell way from it because dodging is nearly impossible in that cramped spot. You're gonna need to dodge them latter :3.
-The control changing... Yeah... I haven't really touched that part and what's left is mostly stray code infected with a load of bugs.

Thank you for testing and I await the report for the rest of the game :)

Edit: I have a question: How difficult is my game exactly excluding from all the buggy shit it has... I mean... In terms of tedium and trap originality. I think my bossfight is alright. But I don't know... What's your opinion in the game's aspects?

Well, I did try the new version out.

What I do like so far:

The particle effects and the graphics as a whole are awesome.

When you die, the view shifts briefly just to exaggerate the fact you just screwed up.


What I would like to see improved:

The music that loops has a lot of silence at the end of it, so you have about 30 seconds or more of silence before the song loops.

This is WAAAAAAY too difficult, mostly due to the block placement and enemy placement.
: DETAILS • show


--> In the very first area (not counting the first screen) it was impossible for me to dodge around the rocket launcher and get to the next platform. You have to wait for the platform to get to you, and by the time it does, you have a bunch of rockets shooting right at you and along the path you need to take.

--> Next, you have the rubber band physics spike ball. It seemed simple enough to dodge around for the first fall, but it bounces in such a weird way that I could not get past it legitimately.

--> The boss you have is just too hard, and I couldn't really figure out the order in which to attack him. While dodging around all of the missiles and having blocks destroyed from underneath me, I couldn't get to the ! drum AND shoot down his turrets.

--> I'd be interested to see you beating all of this yourself, because I was playing on N00B difficulty and had to save hack my way through everything. Please put in a more reasonable difficulty curve.

Thank you for playing it, I really didn't had any one experienced look into my game and since I suck in most fangames, I tried adjusting the difficulty level, accordingly. I agree that its too hard on some parts.

-On the looping music: My mistake, I've been working on another areas and really didn't noticed the problem or gave it too much importance. It will be fixed.

-The first rocket launcher: I've been placing it around and really didn't worked. Although getting past it is possible, since it ain't random. It's just too hard for a "perfect" playthrough. I've been lazy, and i'll fix it.

-The ball is essentially a rocket with high speed and high turn speed, it collides with invisible blocks surrounding the screen, I'll put them so that it doesn't follow you to the boss without messing up the jumps.

-The 1/2 area Boss: I actually never though it was that hard, with the barrel destroyed, all it needs to be done is blow up one of the rocket launchers and get his laser to target the door in the end. I'll probably make that more idiot-proof.

-I can record it, and it is all possible. It just took me 2000+ deaths and 4 hours. This is one of 5-10 Main Bosses in the finished version. I'll make it easier.

Most if not all of these problems should be fixed in 0.2.2, if there is another problem then just point out. Thanks for playing  ;D

EDIT: 0.2.2 Is probably discarded, 0.3 will be released instead with MAJOR engine overhauls. And a whole new look.  9_9

EDIT2: Graphics are incredibly improved! For those that are curious, follow me on twitter! Else, you will see when 0.3 comes out.

Hi !

I tried I Wanna be The Boss Hunter.
This first level is good !
The rocket launchers and saws fit the background, and Super meat boy fans will love.  :)

The first boss was nice too. A little disappointed that it was just a square, but it is minor.
During the second cycle the lights in the background are really flashy, my eyes hurt  :P

Do you have a little story in mind ? Or something to indicate why the kid is going this way ?
Since we boss hunt, you can leave some clues there is a bad blue square close ! (you may not have time for that right now though)

Configuration of control : the window is shortened on the right side, and a sound error pop up.

Seems good overall, any stage 2 soon ?  :D

Good luck for the contest !

Thanks for showing up and criticizing it :D . You see... what you played till you finished it was around 4-5% of the game's expected size. The first level/path/stage is not even finished yet XD . Still going to add two more minibosses and a boss to wrap up the level.

About the square boss(which is actually a miniboss) is the main character of one of my buggiest games: The STAR . The reason why its evil is probably the same why you fight mario in other fangames even though the game hints to something else. About the flashing background... Yeah... It accelerates a bit too fast, I might change it.

About the overall plot... I plan to add cutscenes or kind of collectibles to help explain some of the stuff in the "realistic" stages. Both of which are time consuming and will probably done along the way once I get "inspired" to do them. However... In the next update the kid will now have big fancy hub to play around ;) All I can say about the plot right now is that the events are "after" the kid killing the father and becoming the guy.  :-X

This is the second time people pointed it out. The control page is bugged to hell right now since I haven't bothered to put any real effort into the menu, All the controls are rebind-able but they aren't saved after closing the game. I will probably take it out and put it back in when I feel like it. :P

If you can expect stage 2 soon... hum... Probably next month and half I'm going to add two new areas. I cannot say accurately since the game is expected to have a semi open level structure. But expect 2 non-gray areas in less than 2 months. Hopefully :)


All I can say is thank you very much for playing the game and taking your time to write this review  ;D ,  you can leave a suggestion if you'd like. I hope you stick around to see the full version and well wish me luck for the contest. Thanks! :)

Damn, that took long enough... NEW VERSION! Also comment  ;D !

EDIT: I Wanna Be The Boss Hunter will be dropped. I might release 0.3.2 but it will never be finished. I will remake the game from the ground up with vastly improved graphics, better difficulty progression, lots of new goodie gimmicks, and a whole new engine.
