Games : : VoxelNoid
Posted By: Daytona675x. on 2014/10/2 6:23:03
Hi, our new MorphOS (and AmigaOS 4 Warp3D) game "VoxelNoid" is ready for download here.

For free! Although donations are welcome, of course. There's a press-kit and DVD-cover-art available too.


An Android-port is also available (that one's free version is limited though).

The game was first presented to the public some weeks ago at the Gerp 2014 demo-party where it won the first place in the Wild competition.

In its core VoxelNoid is a break-out-variant with 3D voxels: the bricks, balls, extras, even the bat, all voxels.
The voxels ain't just eye-candy though. They are an essential game-play element:
If a brick is destroyed then it explodes into the tiny voxels it is built of, filling the playfield with voxel-debris.
As soon as the ball approaches such debris it starts to swirl around and flies to the bat, where it is converted into energy to charge the laser.
And guess what: with that laser you can blast away those bricks in rows! Even those harder blinking bricks the ball cannot destroy cannot withstand a well aimed laser-blast for too long. Besides that the laser can be your last resort in critical situations since the ball is slowed down while firing.
And real high scores can only be achieved by true laser-masters.
When you destroyed all normal bricks the next level is entered - and there are 30.

And then there is that 2-player-simultan-splitscreen-mode...
Clean up your playfield first to win. And if you know how to handle your laser: use it to beam penalty-bricks to your opponent's playfield, one for each two bricks you shoot. Harhar ":-)"
Please check out the readme.txt inside the archive for further information.

    It seems to be a bit crashy. Hangs the whole system quite soon on Mac mini and on Powerbook (on two users). We didn't succeed to complete the first level without a hang with few tries.

    Hmm.. now I got to end of the level, but I can't press the "next level" button...

    After your post I have tried the 2 Player Mode - it crashed immediatley.
    But if you reduce the "Camera FX Strength" to zero, the game runs ... ok we ended the test at 3 to 5 rounds.
    By the way Donation send :-)

    thanks, that was a good hint! Indeed: just found and fixed an issue there. An issue that most likely is the reason for jPV's crash too.
    Will tell you as soon as an update is online.

    EDIT: forget it. It did look like a potential issue but after checking more in depth I found that the critical situation I thought I spotted could never happen. Until now I neither had a crash nor did I found anything suspicious yet nor do I have any hit in ramdebug :(
    If it crashes for you and if you can get any crash info from the OS, please paste it into a p.m. Thanks!

    Btw.: I'm still on MorphOS 3.6. Do you use 3.7 ? If so, maybe I should update...

    It is Morphos 3.7 in Fullscreen mode 1024x768x24 and 2 Player Game no way to print anything.
    The System goes into Fullstop with a black screen.
    But I have to admit that I have a problematic Graficcard (a Mac flashed PC Radeon9250 with128Mb Ram) so it might be a
    Hardware issue.

    Happens here with one player mode too. I just switched to full screen mode and go for 1 player game. Hangs with frozen display or with black display and buzzing sound after a while. Can't get anything from log at that point. Friend said he tried in windowed mode with same result.

    Mine too. I have no problem with my setup. Must test on my Ibook next to see if I can replicate the problem.

    Same crash here, something like shutdown, but I still use Mos 3.6 (MacMini).
    Thank you for really cool and polished game. Reminds me of old Team17 quality. :)
