Kirby's Quest v1.05
Posted by Michael on 4 March 2005, 05:08 GMT

[Kirby's Quest] Kirby's Quest is an 89 game similar to Kirby's Dreamland 1 and 2. This side-scrolling game features five types of enemies and a PC level editor. In the most basic sense, it is like Mario. The most important aspect of the game is that the author lists 130 KB of free RAM required in order to prevent crashes because "some levels are large."

Update: Version 1.06 has now been released. This includes a bug fix and 92+/V200 versions.

Update: Now version 1.08 is out.

130K of free RAM, eh? That is not hard to do really. Of course, I do not put more than can fit into archive game wise on my calc. Maybe I am different in that respect.

As far as the game goes, Kudos. Really a great job.

No, I don't think your diffrent. I always leave sufficent room in the Archive to hold my RAM stuff. Then again, its a lot easier on a 84+SE with only 24k RAM. smae concept though

I have only 109k, I don't think it's easy to get 130k space, I don't want to delete anything that is supposed to do with math. On my main folder, I have the calculus, math1, math2, math3, science1, science2, science3, tiinfo, and zzconfig. I don't know if any of these are important or not. Can someone tell me? Thanks.

No, you just need to get to the third or fourth level... Granted, that's not all that easy. :|

This version has a little Bug btw, when you fly and get hurt Kirby behaves like he had just eaten an enemy. I've uploaded already the fixed version 1.06, that has also 3 more enemies for the editor.

Oh and the game has not 5 basic enemie types but 5 types of powers Kirby can mimic. It has like 25 enemies I think.

Compiling a Voyage 200 version is as easy as modifying compiler settings on TIGCC. But you still did nothing. >:(

Yeah thats easy, but the problem is that i would have to clip the sprites at the right and bottom border because of the bigger screen. Anyway i will compile a provisional version for the ti 92+ and v200 and upload it.

I tried the latest version (1.06):
After sending lot's of files to VTI, I started a new game: I got the "File not found" message and a crash.

I have only played the first two levels so far, but my first impression is: This is the best jump'n run game for 68k-calcs so far (or, at least, the best one running on a Titanium).

With the level editor, this could become a classic like Mario for the Z80's

130k free ram is not really a problem for me. Just archive stuff.

Kirby's Ti Land is better by one important aspect: IT WORKS ON THE V200!!!

You know, rather than complain here, you could send an e-mail to the author and ask him to compile it for the V200, or even ask for the source so you could compile it yourself.

Yeah, complaining to us won't accomplish anything.

You could also say: Kirby's Quest is better because it works on a Titanium :)

But the keys are too... eck. F1 and F5 are too far apart on the v200 for good gameplay, unless you have three hands (one for F1, one for F5, and one for arrow keys).

The key settings are meant for 92+'s, where F1 and F5 are next to each other...

You can try Sim : this program can remap the keyboard as you wish with a custom script defining the new mapping (see URL above).

BTW Sim worked perfectly with Kirby's Quest to make it work on a V200/92+ before it was ported (one of the latest news items of www.calcgames.org).

Sim quits without doing anything (not even a help message on the bottom) whenever I run it.

(And, yes, I did use proper notation)

You need use Sim on the PPG file, not the assembly launcher.
