Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:58 pm

I recreated the game "Nohzdyve" from "Bandersnatch" that is on Netflix. This is pure Brightscript using roScreen.

It is a non-certified channel so you will need to click "ok" to the warning when installing through the web portal.

More info about this game.

What did you think of "Bandersnatch"?

Well it works okay up until you die, then (at least for me) it just freezes and does nothing, no matter what button I press. I have to exit via Home then start over.

(By the way, I love the cool "tetris" piece screensaver)

Hey Komag,

Thanks for playing.  You are right there is a delay between rounds.  I think I put in a button lockout to prevent the game restarting too quickly and it will continue to play if you wait just a little bit. I probably made the delay a little too long and I will fix it the next time I have a chance to work on this. The screensaver object makes more sense if you watched bandersnatch on netflix.

Thanks for the welcome but I have been here for quite a while. I am not that great at publicity and marketing. Any suggestions on where to promote Roku games?

My published games  http://mattmoores.com/roku/

I started really retro in 2011  but never published

and this demo from 2014 I never finished porting  (Playable but there are issues.)

Me neither! I was looking at your Run CMD just recently and realized you used a particular "stock" image I'm  using on an unreleased game I'm working on :)
But I welcomed you as a reference for the fact your did a remake of an existing " retro-game"  just like I did with Prince of Persia, Lode Runner, Donkey Kong and Moon Patrol.
BTW I really hope Roku team don't deprecate and actually improve the Draw2D framework, when all supported devices become OpenGL machines, we could develop so much better games with more resources.
