Raeff and I present you our MAGS October entry

cheKKen


What if chess wasn't a game of clever minds but of quick fingers?
Find out in this two-player fighting game in the spirit of classic arcade games.



Download cheKKen here

Player 1 shall use the A and D keys to move left and right. Use W for blocking
and S for attacking.

Player 2 shall use the J and L keys to move left and right. Use I for blocking
and K for attacking.

Beware that this is just a demo we might or might not expand...

With less than 2 hours to go, I honestly don't know if I'll be able to finish in time. It's borderline.

OMG cheKKen!!!

DOWNLOADING NOW!!!

What a cool idea, you two! Luv yas!

EDIT: Just played the game and it was amazing in its retro arcade feel. I know it's a demo and obviously you would need all the chess pieces and quite a few more fighting moves to make it into something people would want to come back to and play again and again. An AI opponent campaign would also be nice: in itself a huge challenge, and the final Boss is the king obviously...

But I do see the potential of this idea to really take off and become a popular game outside of the AGS community...

And I used to LOVE playing Battlechess back on my old c64, even though I suck at chess. So, with your game, even people who can't play chess for the life of them can still claim to have won a game.

Don't forget a special announcement for beating the king: "CHECKMATE!" in an awesome FPS announcer's voice like "MULTIKILL!"

Whilst the game is cute in itself and it is quite fun to knock the hell out of each other, and I know its a kind of demo but it's all over in a flash and the scripting really was not over hard. I would say it should have had at least 8 levels with variants as it is it's a one-roomed wonder that ends not long after it begins which is a shame.

None-the-less: Not a bad bit of chess thumping (laugh)

Not quite cigar time :~(

Hey guys, please bear with me... This was my first attempt at coding a game with AGS. And it was my first attempt at coding a fighting game. There is still a kick-style lower attack on the to-do-list, which I couldn't finish in time. And there are even more vague ideas floating around... So, depending on spare time and a proper mood we might flesh out the game a little more. No firm promises though :grin:

Kind regards, Raeff.

I just tried it. I enjoyed bashing the bishop very much.

If this is the case then you did well with your first game in such a short space of time (nod)

Another fun game from Slasher! I really like the use of different characters in this one, and the puzzles were very good. Great work! :D

This game has a lot of potential, and works really well as a demo. The concept is great, and the graphics and animations are lovely. A full game would be fantastic!

I'm a bit disappointed at the lack of entrants this month. I hope it picks up next month (nod)

Yeah. There are many factors at play. But I've come to think that more conceptual topics (like shifting genres) tend to get a lot of early buzz but little in the way of participation.

I will say I loved the topic and really did intend to submit an entry that I was working diligently on, but did not complete in time. I was somewhat hoping for a small extension like VampireWombat, but can't be upset since everyone has the same deadline. Which isn't a big deal except that I'm sure most of us like more entries to play and vote for. I will post my game to the completed games thread sometime soon (as there is no rush now) for whomever to play.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Sorry Twirly. I missed that you were also working on something. Of course what I said to VW would have applied to you too. That's totally my fault. I hope to see the game soon. It will get special mentions :-)

Everyone. 5 more days of voting. It's pretty close but we could do with a few more voters, if you have time :-)

Just finished Sonic and I must say, it's a nice little game! I enjoyed that each character had his own special abilities and how they had to work as a team. I also enjoyed the puzzle about walking on the roof.
I just wish that it was a little more polished, for example when
Spoiler: ShowHide
using the toolbox on the tap there was just a generic response. I'd have expected some information that there is no appropriate tool inside and was a bit confused why I can't do it.

Also, Luigi walks to some weird locations after interacting with any of the kitchen cupboards.
