I have finally finished my game Curse of the Vampire for Mac OS.
It can be downloaded from my website:

Please have a look and tell me what you think. (Unless you think it sucks!)

    Congratulations! … @philltec

    the download site sucks! very,very slow and not easy to spot where to click
    try … it is free!

    nice that the game plays small screen … hate large screen games on desktop!

    I had great difficulty in getting anywhere as my control keys act as shortcuts
    EX … [control]+[upArrow] changes my desktops!

    so, I sucked at doing your game!

    I would have preferred a spaceBar press rather than control press for fire.

    I personally like this old style adventure look/play!

    Tried to download it from File Factory but after several pages of promotions, clicking, waiting for a timer, I was eventually told I needed to wait another 2 minutes, plus the site made a rude ad for online dating appear.

    I strongly recommend you at least change to dropbox, or better yet buy some server space. You can get your own webspace for like $6 a month now.

    So I posted some comments and the forums ate them for lunch. Here goes again:

    In addition to not liking the download site you picked, I did like your idea for the game, but I felt like the enemies were too repetitive, that it needs a mini-map, that is NEEDS sounds, and that I wanted some incentive for killing enemies. I found that most of the time, I just avoided the enemies when I could because there isn't a score/money/powerup to get for killing them.

    Also, if it's a finished game, the instructions should be better/longer and there should be some explanation or story that leads into what's happening in the game.

    I do think you have a good start, though!

    It seems to have eaten my comments too!
    Thanks for the info on file factory. I only signed up as I couldn't upload anything to mediafire.
    @MotherHoose I guess ctrl is used for a lot of shortcuts. I should have thought of that.
    @ tatiang With regard to sounds, I was going for a ZX Spectrum feel, games like Firelord or Curse of Sherwood. Now you mention it, there is no incentive to kills enemies. I was hoping if they were annoying enough, they would need to be killed to get past them!

    Thanks for all your feedback.

    @philltec … click on the link in previous post and get dropBox…

    don't get discouraged … take the lovely advice that @tatiang gave you and go for it!

    we both feel with a little more work you have a very good playing game!
    and, something worth your efforts/talents

    certainly, if you have the beginning and the middle and the end done … adding music and a reward system and a mini-map will only make your good start … a better game!
