2023 - November - Blastaway - Ended
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


See User information
Hi everyone,

A new month, a new competition here on Amigans.net. Or wait, is it a new competition?

Yes, definitely, but one can also say it is a blast from the past, because in November
we will be playing a game we played back in the summer of 2022, namely Blastaway from
Retream.





Blastaway is a highly playable and entertaining arena shooter,
gameplay-wise heavily and shamelessly inspired by Wizard of Wor and
graphically somewhat inspired by The Chaos Engine. Graphics have been
pixelled by hand and music has been tracked as modules to let the player
live a true 16 bit experience. And the 50 arenas, spread over 5 different
stages, have been designed to make that experience intensely enjoyable...
and last long! Are you brave enough to step into the arenas and clear
them of the wors they swarm with?


To download the game and for more information about it, please visit the official webpage:

https://retream.itch.io/blastaway

The game comes with an installer, so should be quite straight forward to get it running
on your system.

If you've already got the game installed from the last time we played, please remember to
re-install it with the latest version found via the link above.

The goal of the contest is to see who can get the highest score in the game! Who will become
the Amigans.net champion in 2023 of Blastaway by Retream?

In 2022 it was Levellord who won the contest, with VooDoo 2nd and mcleppa 3rd. Can Levellord
defend his position as the Amigans.net Blastaway champion?

Post scores below - screenshots or photos taken with your cellphone is fine.

The contest runs until the end of the month as usual.



-----( Final Standings )-----

1. VooDoo - November 20th - 663,770 points
2. TSK - November 27th - 479,260 points
3. Levellord - November 5th - 320,410 points
4. mcleppa - November 18th - 305,405 points
5. MartinW - November 10th - 111,750 points
6. 328gts - November 5th - 90,685 points
7. Maijestro - November 5th - 16,235 points
8.


The winner of the November 2023 games contest is VooDoo! Congratulations and well done!

@all

328gts informed me about this competition, so I'd like to thank you for choosing Blastaway (again), wish you fun and wholeheartedly thank whoever paid a very generous amount for the game just a few hours ago (there had been no purchase since January 2022, so I guess it must be somebody around here) :)

Mada a horrible mistake and hit ESC twice during my gameplay. Wanted to get back into the game, but... yea. Check the box with the soldiers at the bottom. I wish it was implemented better how to quit the game.

Run out of keys! Not sure did Saimo did some changes to the levels with the new version, I don't remeber having issues with the keys in the past. Here is the update, I am done for today!

Nope, levels never changed.
Tip: not all doors need to be opened (it's a little puzzle element of the game).

Thanks for confirming Saimo, then it is me who counted bad at previous levels.

@saimo here when using joystick/gamepad when going up/down player stops (get stuck), and I need to press several times up/down to player "start" again going up/down.

Anything I can try/test to see why happens?

Blastaway v1.5 (2022.07.31)

I have never experienced or heard about something like that.
It must be an issue with your devices/system. Blastaway uses the SDL functions to detect the user input, so, if input doesn't work, there must be some issues with the underlying OS/hardware.
Have you checked your AmigaInput settings? Are your devices reported to be analogue or digital?
I'm afraid I can't do much :/
