Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on November 05, 2015, 09:32:25 amOne suggestion I have would be to add background variety, eg have a different background for each world.

Background take a lot of space though :( The 65k limitation was what forced the appvar use, actually, otherwise if everything was embedded in the program, it would have gone over that limit, making the 8xp invalid.

You could have backround types (like lava for some maps and trees for others) just reusing a few would add allot to the game without using to much RAM (I would think)

Couldn't the backgrounds be compressed to a lower color depth then decompressed? They could also be a lower resolution.

Otherwise what you could do is make the current background color different in each world and flipped horizontally.

Here's an english review of the original computer game :

How come you're the pale guy in a white suit on the cover, while the yellow dudes are the killer androides, but it's reversed in the game? And if the androides look humanoid, why don't they kill each other? Game questions that may never be answered. I'm gonna make that a topic. :walrii:
Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."

Here are two playthroughs of the original Androides game, with the first 10 levels :

Darn, that is quite old school. Kinda odd to see a calculator port with better backgrounds (not from a calc programmer point of view, but I mean that people outside the calculator community probably don't always expect calculators to be more powerful than old computers)

Also those walkthroughs will be handy if I play again. I couldn't even beat the first level >.<

But the takeover is happening! Soon all the people with XP computers will sell them to Best Buy and replace them with CEs, which will rule the world!  >:D
But then again, they'll be replaced someday.
