Thanks for the positive comments on this game. As for the understandable criticisms, no of course I don't think SEUCK is the perfect game design platform, though of those available for the C64 it does have the best graphics options and does make the most playable results (as opposed to the 3-D Construction Kit, Games Creator etc). Having said that, I use it very little these days, as I prefer to program in a freer environment, but indeed I do not have coding skills on the C64, nor the huge amount of free time it would take to learn them, so I do all my non-SEUCK coding on PC. It is sad but inevitable that fewer people will bother to learn strong coding skills on old computers as time goes by, and so the majority of new games will be construction kit-type games. It might help bolster the scene if coders would work on making better construction kits or improving existing ones (as is already happening with SEUCK, and indeed this game itself was an experiment by Richard and me, albeit a limited one, in making the kit work a little beyond its set parameters).

if everyone hates S.E.U.C.K so much, why not use your 'skills' and make a new game creation system that everyone can use... sheesh..

TheRyk is right. Sometimes I wonder why these talented game graphicians don't try to code their own game or try to find a coder who's capable of bringing their ideas to life. But maybe that's because this is a scene of it's own.

This is the first SEUCK game, which have an excellent atmosphere.

Nice music, nice gameplay.

For the final updated version of the game, download the .zip file. There were some issues which Anthony pointed out that have now been fixed.

No hard feelings, please. I might not be a SEUCK expert since I never tried (and most probably never will) to create anything with it but I know some 100 SEUCK games and I'm roughly aware of its limitations. However, I also know that some ppl try to overcome those limitations, that's why I suggested jumping without having any idea whether it's possible to realize in SEUCK.

Of course I rather see those gfx on SEUCK than never seeing them. But for sure, the majority of users won't even bother transfering seuck games, let alone trying to play them. And if they do - like I did and like I always do if a game (seuck or not) looks interesting -, many will just see their negative attitude towards SEUCK affirmed by this one.

Nobody is forced to use SEUCK, coding skills are no argument I let count. Of course it's great if you are skilled at gfx, music plus coding. But only very few ppl really can do each on their own and it's not necessary at all. If skilled gfxians/musicians don't know much about coding but wanna make games and not "waste their talent on SEUCK", they could just achieve some/improve their coding skills or find some skilled coder for their project.

Of course I know that there is a true SEUCK fanatics scene which I don't wanna offend. :) Go on, don't let anyone talk you out of it as long as you like what yer doing. I'll keep releasing dodgy games and demos and whatsoever myself, no matter how few ppl may really like 'em. But nevertheless, I like constructive feedback - even if it hurts sometimes - and try to realise it in future releases. Everyone whose stuff ends here, should want criticism. It's still a different kettle of fish whose advice you follow or not, though. Of course Anthony and Richard can also say: SEUCK rules, TheRyk and everyone who doesn't see this is a cretin :)

I appreciate the looks and the sound but stick to my opinion that both gfx and zak deserve a better game, just my 2 cents.

How is it wasted exactly. If that's the only medium the graphician can use? At least you get to see what they are capable of. You'd never have heard of Alf Yngve if it wasn't for SEUCK and where would WEC be now if he hadn't have done SEUCK games? If you think their talents are wasted you only need to ask about hiring their services :)

I agree with Ryk, a lot of good graphics are wasted on SEUCK'ers. See also Alf Yngve.

I think most people who post reviews here must have little understanding about SEUCK and it's limitations. To suggest jumping is quite laughable... if only :D Another fine effort from Anthony, SEUCK is a great tool for anyone who doesn't program too well to get across ideas and graphics which would never see the light of day otherwise, and Richard's extra programming gels it all together very nicely. Kudos to all, I particularly like the parallax effect on the backgrounds, nice little touch.

Great animations <3 and awesome music. Having said this, I must add that I sometimes ask myself if skilled gfxians and musicians do not waste their talent a little with S.E.U.C.K. I think without the restrictions and flaws of S.E.U.C.K. you could really build a game much greater than this with the same gfx and zak. But S.E.U.C.K. will remain a matter of opinion. :)

However, very promising, but I agree on the limited range of movement. How about at least letting her jump?

This is a preview, right ?

The atmosphere of the game is actually quite pleasing but the limited movement of the main character is simply ludicrous.
