I've created this demo to showcase some of the features of my FPS engine.

An Xbox 360 controller is required for each player, although you can still try the demo with just one.

I'd be grateful for any feedback, and I hope you enjoy it!

Update : By default you couldn't fall from walkways. This was done to match the gameplay mechanics of Goldeneye but as it's proved frustrating for players I've added the ability to toggle between collision modes with the spacebar.

This is a finished project. Whilst it's a demo of my FPS engine, it's also a complete experience on it's own.

Did you try the game yourself? I'd be grateful for any feedback on it.

Good luck with your project, and thanks for checking this out.

Hmm, aside from being strangely 4:3 ratio based, it played ok, movement pace for aiming was spot on, maybe 5% more room for improvement, will test this out on the weekend with some friends to see what they make of it, they are hard core Goldeneye gamers... not me though... but I did enjoy some levels

Physics needs improvement such as erm jumping from a balcony to a lower floor...

Nice work so far!

Awesome, thank you!

I know the borders can seem a little dissapointing, but it's actually to help correct the aspect ratio. This is a technique used in most modern games and helps prevent the view from appearing stretched.

Examples :


Call of Duty



Halo

And the physics, or rather the lack of them, was also a design choice as you were unable to fall from heights in Goldeneye.

Rest assured though, my next demo will not only allow you to fall off of things but also jump over them!

Anyway, thanks for the feedback. It's much appreciated and I hope you and your friends have fun with this.

I had a quick go of this. I don't have a second xbox 360 controller so can't comment on the multiplayer aspect.

The only thing I didn't really like was the invisible walls for the walkway and on the ramps. I can understand why you did it but it felt wrong to me.

I like the graphic style and the HUD. Controls were good. I like the idea of a split screen FPS game (would prefer a single player game myself). The black borders didn't bother me, didn't even notice it to tell you the truth.

I don't think jumping and falling are all that necessary but it might add an extra dimension to the game. Crouching would also be a good addition.

Nice effort.

Thanks for the feedback, 29 games.

The response to the gameplay has been extremely interesting, and it's clear that certain mechanics I've recreated haven't aged well.

Thankfully, additional player actions already exist within the engine and I'll be sure to include them in future projects.

I also appreciate the kind words on the games visuals and controls. Thank you.

Just a note to say that I've updated the game to include the ability of toggling between collision modes. By default, you can't fall from the walkways, but pressing spacebar in game will change that.
