New Game Maker Game - Evil Toaster

Post by MyNameIsKooky » Sat Jun 19, 2010 1:04 am

Here's a quick little Game Maker game of mine where you're an apple fighting a toaster. :lol:

No instructions come with the game, so here's an overview:

You're the apple. To control yourself, use the arrow keys. Duh. To shoot projectiles, press space. You'll need to shoot the toaster to damage it. The toaster's health is displayed in the bottom left-hand corner. Once the toaster's health is fully depleted, it will regain its health and you will gain another point to your score. The more times you deplete the toaster's health meter, the more points you get. But there's a catch: The toaster will fight back by shooting toast. Each time you empty its health meter, the difficulty will be cranked up and the toaster will shoot more types of toast. Different colored toast act differently. Touch one piece of toast and it's game over. You can destroy toast by shooting it. If you ever happen to be overwhelmed, you can hide behind one of the red blocks. Beware, though, they disappear after a bit, but they will reappear after a while. The most points you can get is 11, which is when the toaster finally blows up. If anyone needs a guide for the toast colors, then I can post it. :)

Well, I intended to base the game on how much you damaged the toaster and didn't plan to do any updates, but I will if other people want to as well.

Alright! Since everyone wants it, I'll update it! :D

Anyways, here's a guide on the toast colors in order of appearance:

Brown Toast: Basic toast. Moves upwards until it hits something.
Red Toast: Fired directly at you.
Green Toast: Like Brown Toast, but faster.
Purple Toast: Chases for a little, then goes flying off.
Blue Toast: Senses where you are going and shoots to there.
Cyan Toast: Shoots diagonally. Ricochets off walls 3 times before exploding.
Yellow Toast: Like Brown Toast, but slower.
White Toast: Like Red Toast, but much faster. Can't be destroyed by your projectiles, so you have to keep moving.
Grey Toast: Stays in front of you, trying to block any shots you try to make to the toaster.
Black Toast: Homes in and destroys your projectiles, then goes flying off when they're all gone.

Wait, I change my mind about this part. Getting points for damage is a better scoring system IMO.

Also... I don't know how well this would work, but I'm wondering if some kind of 'Versus' mode could be made. One player controls the apple normally, and the other player controls the toaster's firing patterns to make it more challenging for the other player.

Hey, how about adding something like health and lives? It's REALLY hard to win if it's one hit=you're out.

Oh, and Tails, I can help you. I know how to move and my bro knows how to shoot bullets.

That's the point. It's not supposed to be easy to defeat the toaster so you have to keep at it for a while and possibly compete against other family members.

My reasoning was actually considering toasts as enemies, not projectiles. There could be a whole Act 1 with toast coming out of portals then after you survive the more minor wave of just toast the toaster comes out of that random red part in the wall.

The random red part is there for a reason: You'll see if you beat the toaster.

Can you make it auto-fire? Its really annoying having to continueously mash the space bar.

Then I would just stay on level 1 and shoot all the brown toast, but never shoot the toaster :lol:
