Steel Saviour Episode I

Submitted by DENJ
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[​IMG]
Overview

Steel Saviour is dynamical an action-arcade with which you help the doomed people. And what to do, if gold mines aren't enough for military budget? Here also it was necessary to rely on heroes like you, without looking at a sad condition of your "ship". So, dress a helmet faster not to become deaf from own motor, and move forward for the sake of justice. It is necessary to tell about good avoidance of your fighting helicopter, and also super-modern weapons which can be established by the helicopter. And all has begun that humans have decided to expand the territory for the account of undead, but, apparently, wanted to indulge the same. Only an occasion wasn't. However humans had a whole squadron of helicopters of fast reaction. Though your reaction is necessary too.

Console commands

  • 'farzlow' - setting camera view distance to low and increasing performance (use this if you have low FPS)

    As an owner and big fan of Jets'n'Guns Gold the computer game i shall take it as a basis for my review.

    Bad things:
    -Game is resource-intensive, i keep having low fps even without high quality settings
    -I find it pretty hard, even in "very easy" mode, but then again maybe it's because of the above.
    -Nothing in quest menu to tell you the list of weapons available, their strong/weak points, how energy is spent and how it depends on the type of bomb you're using.
    -You can't choose your weapons, neither your ship.
    -Hotkeys are not customizable.
    -When you die you wish you were near the ground because you fall awfully slow and you're missing frags while doing so.

    Neutral:
    -I have no clue if difficulty is recalculated when there's only 1 player, but if not, it should.
    -I didn't see any shop to upgrade your stuff at, but then again since nothing is customizable maybe you didn't want that.

    Good:
    -Terrain is good-looking, and doesn't distract you too much from the action.
    -Interface is pleasant, intuitive, and doesn't feel like it's taking up much space.
    -Custom (great) music.
    -Map is damn fun, just like J'n'G the game, and side scrollers are pretty rare around here.
    -No bug detected.

    +Rep for the good work, originality, taking in account feedback from players/reviewers, and J'n'G music ;-)
    3/5.
    Take a look at the list of bad things and fix them for higher rating.

    You used WEU?
    Hmm WEU is too outdated, nothing I would suggest to anyone, I suggest you use JNGP.

    Dj0z, thank you for your commet and for + to Rep. But I want to say a few words:
    1) About low fps. Is my english-speaking so bad for understandig? In the description there are console commands and there is command 'farzlow' witch increases performance. The only reason about low fps is very high farz of player camera (the warcraft 3 engine is not so good) and not powerful enough videocard.
    2) About chosing weapons, ship(if you want to chose an other helicopter play as a player 2), about shop. Sory but you want just too much, this is a classic game so Im not planing to do such things, besides there are people that want to get right into the action without losing the time for bying weapons and customising the 'ship' and there regulary drop weapons from the monsters.
    3) About hotkeys, slow falling of the helicoptep. I'l think about this.

    Kael, I used WEU only to set map size to 128x480, to create skybox and to create loading screen, I dont use other features of WEU. I know about JNGP and I think that JNGP is useless.

    Sory if my english-speaking is so bad.

    WEU sucks as there is many bug about it.

    You're welcome to use it, but don't cry if it corrupt your entire map cause if that does happen; you better pray you did a backup of your map.

    as for credit list, there is no need for it if you do not use a single custom resources that are not belong to you.

    from the look of the file size, it seems you does use a custom resources.

    I'll try it, then maybe I could find a suitable minimap image too :D

    EDIT:
    Still looking...
    Anyway, pretty fun map! Although add some powerups like spread fire and rapid fire too. And when there are huge clusters of floating things along with the giant frost wyrm that pops up every now and then and the stupid land dwellerz that CONSTANTLY aim you, you've turned easy into hard for me. I think it's jsut me though...

    EDIT:
    Couldn't find one suitable, so I made one from scratch. WEE!!! If you wanna see it, just tell me, either here, through a VM, or a PM.

    there's no 999999 stars button, rating it 5 would be too shameful for this
