This project is read-only.
Project Description
Based on "XNA Platformer Starter Kit", but greatly modified to become a mix of games such as MSX's "Castle", "Castle Excelent" and "Maze of Galious".
Open source, all code avaliable is well organized and documented, being a great source for learning or for creating your own games.

This is a first, very stable, version of the project.

See Credits page for code, graphics and sounds credits.

Check out the Screenshots to see the progress of the current version.

Help needed:
  • Creating original graphics - game suport skins, so it's easy to include and test new graphics and sounds, with no programming required
  • Creating original sounds - skins also suport specific sound
  • Level creation - still no level editor - planned for version 3
  • Ideas - I have plenty of ideas to implement 'til version 5, but new ones are always welcome
  • Documentation - Level creation, Skin Creation, code main classes...
  • Tests - just play the game and fill in an "issue" to help us make the game better
  • Programming - Level Editor, pushing objects, and other features planned for version 3 can be done without any conflict with current work
