Indie developer Contralogic has released a new procedurally generated maze game Chompston, in which a Pac-Man type character uses bombs to deal with ghosts instead of power pills.
According to the official site, "A game mixing elements of Pac-Man and Bomberman. Collect dots to score points. Drop bombs to defeat enemies.
I made this to experiment with procedural level generation and musical gameplay, where all the sound effects are played in time and in key with the background soundtrack.
I used BASS to handle audio playback which simplified things a lot, but to ensure sounds are played in perfect sync I ended up having to write my own mixing routine to combine the music stream with the effects. However because of this I was able to add a simple stereo ping-pong echo which thickens the sound up quite nicely."
Large grey ghosts are immune to bombs (but are still killed by explosions). Red ghosts shoot fireballs, and small green ghosts are fast.
