Triplane Classic & Apricots
« on: July 31, 2011, 08:39:38 pm »
Hey there.
It has been a while since I released anything. For the last few months I've been occupied with my own game (which took part in the RIOT Tag coding competition). Now the compo is finally over, so I found time to finish some of my old wip-ports. So here they are:

Triplane Classic

Triplane Classic is a side-scrolling dogfighting game featuring solo missions and multiplayer mode with up to four players. It is a port of the original Triplane Turmoil game for DOS and aims to match the original game exactly so that high scores remain comparable to the original.

Controls:

Menu:
D-PAD - control mouse cursor
A - mouse left click
B - mouse right click

In-game:
D-PAD DOWN/UP - fly up/down
A - shoot guns
B - engine power
X - roll
Y - drop bombs
SELECT - exit map

The controls are remappable via the game options.

Download: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,30,521
NOTE: I was just told that the game does not work with legacy kernels. So please run it on OpenDingux until I find and fix the problem. Fixed.

Apricots

Apricots is yet another dogfighting game, although it's much more simple. There are two game modes: 1) reach the target score and get back to base 2) destroy all enemy bases. The game also offers 3 different plane types to choose from.

Controls:
D-PAD LEFT/RIGHT - fly up/down
A - shoot
B - drop bombs
SELECT - exit game

Apricots doesn't have any in-game menus, so in order to change the game options (like game modes) one need to manually edit the apricots.cfg config file.

Download: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,30,520


These two will probably be my last ports to the Dingoo, since from now on I'd like to focus on my own game developement.

Triplane was a commercial game back in the days, which most likely means they actually had artists, in contrast to most open source games ;)

That's how this game was designed. I can't help it.
