KotM: Imitation Game
#305 (In Topic #75)
2D city stomping!This is a personal game l've worked on for years based on King of the Monsters 2, but with a greater focus on the destruction of the city. lt started out simple, and in a way it still is, but has since gained a wide array of over three dozen monsters, two full cities, a Starbound randomizer of the tiny village sub-biome, and a sandbox recreation of the Yoshi's Island final boss. After adding all that l've added, l figured it must be worthwhile for at least a few other people. I hope this fits someone's niche interests in 2D giant monsters.
Hotfix 2: Fixed losing control of monster if loading a state that didn't match the current monster.
Not really accepting bug reports, as most everything is done intentionally and what's unintentional l find sooner or later. That being said…
-No audio. The engine l use will crash if too many sounds are played at once if it's not running on XP, and l sure ain't porting this giant mess somewhere else!
-UI doesn't scale when zooming out. I learned how to fix this, l just need to implement it to every single piece of text.
-Helicopter collision with buildings is kinda funky. lt's a result of the implementation, it only collides with the nearest building. Kinda too far in to think of a better method, and l can't really be bothered to care to think of a better method because the focus is giant monsters.
-Starbound village randomizer isn't fully complete. l plan on adding the rest of the buildings and making the randomness more organic later.
-Monster Select Menu is missing many icons. The functionality is finished, l just need to go through the tedium of creating all the icons.
-Nothing happens when Y.I. Bowser reaches his goal other than a silent stat increase. I need to think of a way to remove backgrounds nicely.
-l left in a WIP Godzilla: Domination map. Halted production so l could finalize a public release.
-There are four versions of Bowser and three of them are from Mario & Luigi games. l just really like Bowser, those sprites in particular.
Please refer to the readme or the F1 menu for controls, credits, and additional information.
Ad-ridden MediaFire link:
This fangame hides a certain pair of buildings from KotM2 by default. lf you dislike censorship, remove the NY=1 from the main INI file.
System requirement info:
Tested on an AMD A8-6500 of 3.5GHz. Seems to be just enough to get a consistent full speed with minor background processes, considering my previous slightly-weaker computer would drop frames when the game engine does its random CPU-spike.
Uses around 400MB of RAM.
Uses at most 200MB of VRAM.
lt's just a sprite game, but it does use about 900 graphics (some of which are huge), plus the cities contain over 2,000-3,500 destroyable objects. Good thing l added some instance optimization!
Monster sprite credits are in the in-game monster select menu (End key). The rest of the credits can be found in either the readme or F1 menu.Huge Frogger in the recreation of KotM2's first stage.
Godzilla attacks SimCity 2000!
Oversized T-Rex takes a nap on the city.
Von Leon tramples the randomly generated Starbound village.
Bowser approaches Yoshi's house.
(Mostly good for people who like screen shakes and size difference)

-The taunt messages for Lucario and Mewtwo are partially unfinished. Dialogue is probably cring, anyway.
-Pressing and holding Right Click inside the game window, then releasing Right Click outside the window will get the Right Click stuck as considered "pressed". Just Right Click inside the window to fix.
-No audio once again.

Preview images to come when l can get a chance. For now, here's some screenshots from early development to recent build:
