Ok. here we go!

I's a game i made back in 2001 in Director.
It's pretty much the essense of what I want in a game > challenge.
I'm no designer you'll notice for sure :D hehe
as far as I've seen 2 people have beat'n this game! yes, you read right - TWO and I'm aehummnotcoff one of them!
on both ocassions it was a challenge:
1. at my old job - a youth center winner got 2x200gr bags of potatoe chips and 1˝ liter coke! about 1˝ year ago.
2. at my bros old job a high school last year a 16 years old kid beat it. he got .. the honor! :) heh

also a friend of mine that helped me with some design on this game - ship on 2nd level and Boss, he is telling me he beat it!
and o'right my friends, the few but Good ones that i have, don't lie! ;)
so there we go -> 3 guys have beat'n this game!


1. Everybody can paticipate, overseas and all - I'll pay for shipping!
2. You have to make a Print Screen of the end screen and tell me what song/tune is played at the end!!
it's 97% chance you've heard that tune but if just show me the end screen then .. I'll be lenient 8)
3. This challenge will end on monday 28feb 19.00 hrs CET!
4. the 1st to beat the game post here and PM me with the link to a print screen (No link on this thread!!) or to get my e-mail to mail it to me!!!

if no one wins the price will go on to 1 of my stick2trax challenges :D

have FUN!

oh! btw almost forgot to mention it - may be you knew it but anyway:
All the code to this game has been lost and as you will see it's completed to 95%
there are some bugs that you will most probably become aware of :mrgreen:
but see it as a part of the game! ;)

go here
klick on zargzAttack and don't forget to turn the sound ON! 8O
:roll: you'll prob'ly need to press F11 for fullScreen .. :?

zargz, you already own me on stix2trax so I can already count myself as eliminated!

but I will keep watching.... :shame

23rd February 2005, 10:08 AM
thruster & y'all:
I hope this will be open to all of us that don't have SE Zargz, not that I would honestly expect that of you ;)well, this one will not take place in the wipEout world bit in the .. zargzWorld!! :twisted:
so whoever, with some arcade skills, could take it! :mrgreen:

23rd February 2005, 10:22 PM
does this count as the final screen?

23rd February 2005, 10:38 PM

http://www.wipeoutzone.com/user_files.php?user_id=31eer .. no :)

first level u gotta kill the 'fish' in the first seconds .. he dies s l o w l y .. that's 1 bug
the boss was something like - when u kill him dont shoot him in the eye coz the game freezes :| --> (shem)

24th February 2005, 12:27 AM
*SIGH* What a game!!!! :x I'm gonna have to let someone else win before I break my computer!!!!! :D

24th February 2005, 12:28 AM
what do you mean ' kill em all in 20 seconds ??' everything?!? :o

24th February 2005, 12:37 AM
quite simply you have 20 sconds to hit all the targets on screen, the timer is bottom-left of the screen.
The game is very buggy, please dont complain about it because we're all playing under the same conditions.

24th February 2005, 12:38 AM
20 sec .. everything? aha! :mrgreen: tehe! *nodding

thruster: Very buggy!! please! you are hurting my feelings! :D
just kill the fish 1st then you'll be ok for the first level.
and after you kill the boss don't shoot him in the eye again! ;)
or else! > the game'll freez .. :|

hey you made the effort - unlike my empty promises for a flash game!
sorry if it hurt your feelings, it wasnt meant to.
A little buggy. Like a radio controlled buggy.

i will have nightmares of fish for sure

24th February 2005, 01:21 AM
:shem nope that is the only controller I am still looking for. I have a few weird and wonderful pads, but the negcon is the by far the weirdest, and the best pad for reducing your lap times. It truly is the one pad to rule them all.
Contratulations, well done! 8)

24th February 2005, 01:44 AM
thanks Thruster!

i'm really happy with this one, not only because i played the game that long, but because it's the first contest in my life which i'd won!
Zargz is a solid mate, he deserves the props for the will to give away a negCon just for playing his game 8)

Cheers everybody!!

24th February 2005, 02:30 AM
Well deserved!!! :D Congradulations, my man!!! Thank goodness I hadn't played for long!!!! :D

24th February 2005, 04:09 AM
doh! Trust me to not get here until Shem'd won lol, nice one though shem, enjoy! :wink:

well done shem! you beat that monitor smashinly good game I just played for fun since I already have a NeGcon lol couldn’t get passed level 2, on one occasion the game didn't stop me after 20 secs and just kept on counting and letting me shoot, I tried to make it do that again but with no luck

24th February 2005, 01:40 PM
Boss is after that 2nd level! keep going! ;)
