New Atari Jaguar game Rings by Dr. Typo
« on: April 13, 2020, 00:19:09 AM »
A cool "never ending" game by Dr. Typo was just posted in the Jaguar Forum at AA
https://atariage.com/forums/topic/305398-rings-beta/

I've played through to level 64 and it's a blast!
Being a .cof file it can probably be converted to .cdi for use on the Jag CD player if anyone still uses those..
Here's a link to JiFFi to convert it: http://reboot.untergrund.net/new-reboot/jiffi.html

Very cool!  I had not seen that thread.  Will check it out now!

And here is the video you posted.  Sounds and looks cool!

The game is fun.
I don't understand though, if we're all living in these rings where are the houses?
Looks like undeveloped land and canyons :p
Maybe the aliens are attacking one that hasn't been moved into yet :p

Still, this is great and the music is very nice!

Well, isn't the game still a WIP? Maybe that stuff hasn't been added yet.

Well, it's Dr Typo so once it's posted that's pretty much it-based on history.
I wish he'd go back and 'finish' the likes of Tube SE, Gem Race and Fallen Angels-if they're at all incomplete.
Seems like a little more could be done with them all but I have no idea what he's doing in the background
over there in France. Might be putting them all on a compilation disk or cart, which would be AWESOME.

Hoping to see more from him sooner than later. Haven't seen him around in a couple of years.

Dr. Typo just posted that he's tweaking the game and adding stuff!
Looks like this is NOT the final version. YES! ;D

Release Candidate 1 was just uploaded in the thread ;D
At least one different sound effect when picking up the yellow orbs.

Finally had time to play through the game and the additions are awesome!
The new graphics on the new levels are great. Instead of it being one long endless battle there's an ending :D


Level 1/2 transition screen starts at 2:27
2/3 starts at 4:49
3/4 @ 7:11
4/5 @ 8:40
5/6 @ 11:03
6/7 @ 13:24
End screen @ 15:47
