Weekend Download

JohnBSerious question: if you were a failed experiment of genetic engineering, what would be your weakness? In the case of the poor critter from this week's game Abandoned, it's a limited supply of oxygen. Personally, I would be unable to comb my hair without first dislocating my left shoulder. Think about it. That'd be a rough life.

caster.jpgCaster (Mac/Windows, ~20MB, demo) - A 3D action adventure game that brings back a lot of memories from the Nintendo 64/PlayStation era. Dash, jump, fire, super jump and walk your way through a series of missions as you destroy bug-like creatures and collect energy orbs they leave behind. After each level you can upgrade your abilities tower defense-style. You (and some enemies) can even deform the terrain, which is a nice (and epically dramatic) touch.

abandoned.gifAbandoned (Windows, 12MB, free) - A simple game of exploration that brings back fond memories of Super Metroid. You play a creature who is the result of a failed genetic experiment trying to escape the lab. You have a limited supply of air and must move quickly to find the right power-ups to clear the way to freedom.

greentech.gifgreenTech (Windows, 15MB, free) - Eliminate global warming in this deliciously retro strategy game from the creator of Shellblast. Steer the wind by moving the hurricane (cursor) to pull clouds of pollution from factories into the cleaning facility. If only it were this easy (and fun) in real life!

Abandoned: It seems to work fine on Mac + Crossover. It has a 10 minute time. I didn't like the music- it was eerie & creepy. Use arrows to move, "z" to use the laser once you find it. That's all I know so far :-)

hmm..I appear to have hit a dead end in Abandoned...

so far I have 4 laser powerups, the first radioactive light and have found three oxygen tanks. What I need is a way to get in to the room with to change laser colour, and I can't. I can't find either a direct or hidden pathway into where I need to go in the red rooms.

Anyone offer any help?

Hm.

Don't know if its just my version of abandoned but... I seem to have found a slight error (nothing big)

the readme says z to shoot, x to change abilities, and c to interact, but I found for me, that z was shoot, a was change ability (one that I wasted precious minutes trying to find out, only to find my mistake) and x to interract.

other then that, good game.

For some reason, I have also hit a dead end in Abandoned. I have:

the Laser, Hyperspeed, truth torch(?), and maybe 2-3 lights. Not sure how many o-tanks.

How would I get to

the blue weapon?

To get to the blue weapon you first have to get the triple laser.

To get the triple laser you have to play around with the red arrows (so that they will change position in one of the areas of the map)

Oh god, I forgot about spoiler tags... I can just hope it was vague enough so it doesn't spoil the fun for anyone :-/

You have to get the triple laser, and by triple laser I didn't mean the third level of the laser, but another skill - a laser that shoots 3 beams at a time.

I seriously have to find another oxygen tank.

I have 2 minutes left and I'm in the red room with the really large flowsing bluee arrow streams...

I find this game really hard to navigate so any help appreciated!

I got pretty far.

lots of oxygen tanks, radioactive light, truth torch lvl 1, hyperspeed three, laser 4 and triple laser 1, TK 1. I got 50% done, and how you use the computer 1B thing in the pink heartbeat area? also great game! i got a total 82 min b4 i died, good thing I saved ^^

They also mixed up X and A and S. A and S change weapons, while X interacts with objects, and saves at savepoints.

@Zace

Those are not computers. And to use them you have to activate them with a panel somewhere first.

73% and 80 minutes when I got outside. I could have explored a bit more...

Am I the only one having problems downloading Abandoned? When I open the zip file, I get a message saying "Unexpected end of archive", and nothing is there but the music folder. (using WinRAR) Any ideas?

@VicousChicken:

I had exactly the same problem with both Chrome and Firefox. The download only worked for me once I switched to IE!

Success! Thanks!

Yeah, I've been thinking about making a game with a time limit for a long time, thinking it would be an interesting mechanic. It certainly is, but not for an exploration game. The point of an exploration game is to explore, and that is hurt by a timer, even if the timer is very loose. However, I'm not sure the same applies to RPG games, especially the ones that are like "OMG SAVE THE WORLD... But if you could do my errands first, that'd be great." Those need a timer in order to be considered a "role-playing" game. You know, in which you PLAY A ROLE. Sorry, done ranting now.

Walkthrough for Abandoned:

Walkthrough:
Keys: Arrows, Z, X, A, S
Map: Rooms are listed as A1, B3, and so on. The room you start in is A1,
the letters increase as you head right, and the numbers increase as you go down.
Once you get the map, the upper-left corner will be A1. Z and 0 will be used for
off-map excursions.

This walkthrough is based more on "where do I need to go" than "how do I get there".
It's also not the most efficient, because in most cases, you start at a savepoint, get one item and return.
Also, I may have confused directions a couple times....

Light:

From the start (A1), head right one screen, up one screen, and left one screen (A0).
Pick up the light, head right, down, (B1) then save.

Laser level 1:

From the savepoint (B1), head right, then down one screen (B2).
Go through the arrows, down, then left one screen, left some more, then down one screen (B3).
Pick up the laser, then go back up, then to the upper-right. Use your laser to destroy the green blocks.
Head up one screen, up some more, then left to the savepoint (B1). Save.

Laser level 2:

From the savepoint, head to the upper-right and though the green blocks to the next screen.
Go to the lower-right exit.
Use your laser on the green blocks, then go though the arrows and to the right.
Go through the lower-right exit, pick up the green laser powerup, (E1) and return.
Go through the green blocks again, use the upper-left exit, then the upper-left exit on the next screen.
Go through the green blocks, and head to the left to the savepoint (B1).

From the screen with the savepoint (B1), head to the upper-right and though the green blocks to the next screen.
Go to the lower-right exit.
Use your laser on the green blocks, then go though the arrows and to the right.
Go through the upper-right exit, destroying the level 2 blocks.
Go right one screen, then through the arrows, then right another screen.
Head down and right, through the red arrows, and save (G1).

Oxy tank:

There is a secret passage to the upper-right, that leads to the right.
Go through, pick up the tank (H1), and return to the savepoint (G1).

Hyperspeed level 1:

From the savepoint (G1), head down one screen, then left one screen.
Take the second exit in the top, head left more, then head down through the arrows one screen (F2).

Go through the green blocks, and head to the left to the savepoint (B1).

Laser level 3:

From the savepoint, (B1) head to the left one screen, then continue until you see the green blocks. Destroy them, and the level 2 blocks behind them.

Truth torch:

From the savepoint (B1), head left one screen, and up one screen through the red blocks.
Loop around, and when you get to the dead end, use the secret passage in the floor.
