#Stay@Home Release _ beta version 2020/04/10

My first intention was to sell digital (via itch.io) and physical games should be done by Luchs Soft.

But with all this madness, I guess we need to take care each other, and we need some relaxing/shooting moments. So digital is (and will remains) free. Physical relase may come when everything will be back to normal. If you enjoy the game, please consider supporting Luchs Soft.

This version may not be the final one, some minors changes (bugs removal or better SFX) may be added in the near future before official release.

#Stay@Home Release _ beta version 2020/04/10

Raid on Tricity is an Atari Lynx ROM intended to be played on real Lynx via a flashcard or on an emulator on other devices.

A physical edition is intended in the future, but you can get digital edition via itch.io.

How to play

Well, it's quite easy :

If you have ever play a Tetris clone game, you know how to score : you gain points when a line is complete, the more lines made at the same time, the more points you get.

If you have ever play a shoot'em up game, you know the basis of the game play : just move and shoot. You can move on every brick of the board, you can shoot falling bricks. There are some bonuses that can be collected once down, some other that need to be shoot. There are also some malus, destroy them before they are down or deal with them :

  • 2 of them let you increase (max 5) or decrease (min 1) your number of max shoot allowed,
  • the bomb will also destroy the 8 surrounding blocs when shoot (can be shot while falling, but also on grid)
  • the laser will destroy all blocs on same line when shoot, (can be shot while falling, but also on grid)
  • the monster bloc will create a monster when fall down : the monster will move randomly on grid. You can shoot it. You could also destroy monster bloc while falling
  • the line shield will disable the ability the remove a whole line when complete. If you didn't destroyed it while falling, the only way to remove it is to shoot a neighbour bomb, or a laser on the same line.

Pause will display an help screen.
