New TND Contributor's SEUCK game

Did you enjoy the SEUCK Compo 2017? It doesn't mean the end of SEUCK. In fact, here's another great SEUCK game to keep you entertained. :)

NERO by Igor Errazkin


Igor Errazkin delivers yet another stunning SEUCK creation, with a classic 80's style loading picture (Which I felt the black+blue border loading scheme fit nicely into the loader). The game is called NERO. It features not only a nice retro loading scheme, but also the front end is built like a star chart. It also features a Galwaynized tune, which I composed specially for the title screen. You play NERO, a space agent from Earth. A red planet is under siege by space pirates. Your mission is to fly to the Red planet and fight the pirates, in order to restore peace to the planet. After you have thwarted the pirates, locate the control centre, kill the guards and make your escape back to earth. Otherwise NERO MUST DIE.

2 CONTRIBUTOR'S GAMES

Main Ninja by Igor Errazkin

We have two brand new games from Igor Errazkin. First up is Main Ninja. A SEUCK game, which unfortunately had many problems with the original version of the game. The plan was to submit it to the SEUCK Compo 2016/17. Sadly the game didn't qualify.The player always got stuck on the background after losing a life. Instead we both agreed on getting this game working, by installing it into the SEUCK Redux source, and add a ninja style tune. Guess what? It worked :). In this game, you become a fearless ninja who is on his way home, after a day's training at the TND Dojo. Trouble is, however you have a treacherous journey home. Enemy Ninjas and other enemies will be awaiting to fight you. Watch out for bird poop, and also watch out for the lose bricks falling from the old TND HQ building.



Main Ninja



Super ACE 1942 by Igor Errazkin

Finally for today, we have Super ACE 1942, also written by Igor Errazking. This is a stunning SEUCK WW2 game, inspired by Capcom's classic 1942. This SEUCK game features a couple of in game enhancements I added to the game as well, such as flowing water and a nice Ikari Warriors style in game tune. The game idea is simply to fly through each sector fighting the enemy forces by land, sea or air. So why not strap yourself into a WW2 fighter plane and shout out Tally Ho. Once again, it doesn't class as a SEUCK compo entry, because it wasn't inteded to :)

ANOTHER SEUCK COMPO ENTRY

The Hunter by Igor Errazkin

Another entry makes its way to the MOD SQUAD category for the SEUCK Compo. This time it is a horizontal scrolling SEUCK underwater shoot 'em up, written by Igor Errazkin. In The Hunt,  you take control of a submarine, which must go into the abyss and battle against mutant creatures (which got drugged by a spy trawler) and collect spinning coins for bonus points. Watch out for the giant mutant creatures, and end of stage bosses. One hit, and say bye, bye to one of your submarines. There's also some funny jokes implemented in this fun shoot 'em up. Have fun playing this funny game.

A NEW TND DEMO RELEASE:

The Flame Still Burns
Keeping the spirit of the good old C64. The New Dimension and friends all gather round to produce a farewell demo to DFlame. A few weeks later than planned, The Flame Still Burns demo has finally come out of the production works and is ready for release. This demo consists of oldschool effects, such as static and rolling raster bars. Also there's a simple tech-tech effect. The demo also consists of STE/Meanteam's logo, and finally a nice piece of music by Mr. Mouse/Xentax. Finally there's a few messages from various people who contributed messages of respect, to DFlame, who sadly passed away on 23rd December 2016. This demo is dedicated to him. R.I.P :(



THE FLAME STILL BURNS


NEW CONTRIBUTOR RELEASE:

Zap Fight 2 - Zapped to Oblivion by Alf Yngve and Psytronik Software
I just love futuristic blasters. Alf Yngve and Psytronik Software brings yet another free contributor's game, which was originally planned for the Fourth series of the Shoot Em Up Destruction Set. However the game was removed from the round up, due to a limited number of games for the compilation, and also another  futuristic blaster existed in the compilation. So Alf, Kenz and I joined forces to submit this game to Reset's Mix-I-Disk, and we also have the rights to upload this brilliant blaster on to the TND contributor's page. Zap Fight 2 is an excellent tribute to Slap Fight. Although this game was created with SEUCK, and enhanced with SEUCK Redux. It consists of many great features, power ups, new front end and also thumping trance music - which suits the style of game. Happy blasting everybody!
