First flash FPS for PSP!

First Person Shooter Portable (FPSP)
Alien Invasion Episode 1 is almost finished! Once it's done i'm going to work on a second episode, once I've finished Private Portable 2.
_______________________________________________
Alien Invasion Epi. 1: [Coming Soon]
Beta 3:                     http://www.resiststorage.org/images/FPS6copy.swf
Beta 2:                     [Removed]
Beta 1:                     http://www.resiststorage.org/images/FPS6.swf

Stuff you might want to know about episode 1:
I've added a new level called 'Nightime Attack' featuring 4 enemies to kill   I've also added a boss level, and another level which I have yet to name. In episode 2 there will be:
~ more enemies
~ more levels
~ more storyline
~ cut scenes (hopefully)

Beta 3 stuff you might want to know:
I completely changed the whole timer thing, so now the timer indicates the number of seconds left until the end of the level. The enemies are now moving, and if you let them escape you lose, so you will have to have killed all the enemies to advance to the next level no matter what. I also added a new level called 'Cinr Complex' where I changed the crosshair and added new enemies. There is no time indication in the Cinr Complex (CC) level.

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

First of, it's not a fps. It's like a button press thing. Second, I made something similar AGES ago. I would give you a link but it's really not worth the hassle. Thirdly, game play on the PSP is rubbish because you need the analogue stick. My advice? Give up whilst you're ahead.

Fair enough about it not really being an fps, but everything else you just said was pessimistic. And don't even think about replying and saying you're not a pessimist but a realist because only pessimists say that. And seeing as I've gotten quite far already and it works smoothly on a PSP even with the analog stick, giving up is a no no.

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

i think it would make it more fps-ish if you could see the gun, and the bullets coming out. and maybe the enemies should fall down instead of evaporating? as for a name, how about "FPSP" (first person shooter and psp together lol)

Yeah, you should at least make it so you can see a gun.

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

If you insist. My point is that it's going to be a boring, awkward and repetitive game unless you re-think some stuff. And to be honest, you aren't that far. What you have is a proof of concept type thing, only this time the concept has already been proven many a time. Which brings me to my next point. Claiming that this game is a first is wrong. There are tons of these games made. There's a difference between pessimism and the truth.

I'm trying to draw a gun on LiveSwif but it's really hard xD and I already suggested FPSP above I think... (First Person Shooter Portable?).

You've got a valid point, but to be totally honest it will definately be boring unless I do something to it to make it better, which is why this thread is open to suggestions! After realising this game isn't the first of it's kind, I tried to change the title of my thread but the option to do so isn't available when editing my post. So if a mod could change it to something different...

Perhaps I should make some kind of storyline? A main character? Cut scenes?

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

I've added a menu and everything now, a 'lil intro scene, instructions, a timer and a background information type thing now. But I need help with the actionscript with the timer... When the timer gets to zero the game over frame is shown, but I want a 'Level Complete' frame to load instead if you've killed all of the enemies. Any help?

Why not just import a picture of a gun into your flash document?

Because:

A) It's hard to get transparencies working properly in LiveSwif
B) Most of the time there are random dots on each corner of any image you import to LiveSwif

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

New beta added! See first post. All i have to do now is add more levels, enemies, maybe some collectables (they're not really necessary) and a gun. Hope y'all enjoy!

Lol, OK, if someone could just link me a picture of a gun that I could use I'll use it! I'm no good at searching for decent images.

EDIT: This is the best gun I can draw in LiveSwif:

I think you should make the aliens shoot at you and if you shoot the bullet while it's in the air it blows up and if you get hit by a bullet you die.

Re: First flash FPS for PSP!

oh and one more thing, you could use the gun you drawed as a gun in the game and also draw a hand that holds the gun that would have been cool.
If you cant draw a hand in liweswif you could use an image for example.
