Hello and welcome to this thread. To be frank, I need help. Not with programming or coding, but with IDEAS. If you people could just help me a bit with some ideas in the listed areas of my new game … that would be great.
(That was a quote from Office Space, for those of you who have been deprived of popular culture altogether.)
Well, here's a description of my game as it is right now:
- GLADIATE RPG -
Gladiate RPG is a Turn Based Role Playing Game in which you step into the shoes of a Gladiator in an arena. You kill randomly generated opponents in a text based environment on your TI-83+ (or 84 etc.). During your 'life' as a Gladiator, you rise among the ranks by leveling up and buying items such as weapons, armor, and spells. Health potions and mana potions are also in the process of being programmed in.
What I need is some help with the spells. I don't play any RPGs; I'm more of an RTS person. So I was wondering if anyone here played 'RuneScape' or 'TitanQuest'… or in that area/genre. So please give me some of the following in your ideas and I'll put you under "Credits" or "Special Thanks". Under rare occasions, I'll program you into the next upgrade as a "Boss" that the player must beat before progressing through the game. Heh heh… Under request of course. Anyways, the first version of this game, the one that is so close to being released, needs some polishing up and also some ideas for SPELLS. The first version of the game will only take place in the HOME screen, so forget any graphics. Also, I wouldn't want to use up the picture slots.
So, any ideas? Please, be honest and give me a good lengthy description, including cost (when a dagger costs $50 and a short-sword costs $200) and mana cost (where you get about 100 mana to start out with and each magic LVL gives you an extra 5 mana points).
