Lynx Blast Demo 2020

Let me share some game preview/demo which (for obvious reasons) did not make it into the Lynx 2020 Programming Compo. The game is fully playable with comlynx, but restricted in several places (again for obvious reasons).

With the current situation (COVID-19), it was impossible to do any large-scale testing, thus I cannot guarantee that it works for more than 5 players.

The available game settings are chosen a bit on the not-too-much entertaining side. Two modes are single shot games with too much items at the beginning, thus cleaning up should be very fast. They differ in the way the extras affect the players. The second two modes differ in the same way, but have a much lower drop rate and (close to) unlimited lifes, thus one can build up an inventory and play a longer time (well, I wont call it a beta testing mode, but anyway).

The full version might become available later this year if the situation allows.

The differences between the full version and the demo version:

  • More background graphic sets
  • More playfields
  • More possibilities for configuring the game
    • game mode: win points, best of n games etc
    • start items and lives
    • item drop rates
    • switching on/off for any extra, configurable if it affects all players or only you or all others
    • loading/saving config from/to eeprom
  • no slide show ;-)
  • bug fixes for anything found in the next weeks
  • ... some things I forgot ...
  • Packaging and cartridge😀

Even so this should be completely clear, let me remind you that is is strictly forbidden so sell this ROM in any way (in electronic form or on cartridge).
