First Victory- anywhere!
« on: April 08, 2007, 23:33 »

First off, I'd like to say that I've been playing RL games for quite a while, and have been lurking around here since I first found out about DoomRL. I've become a fan of Mr. Kisielewicz's games, especially Doom, Berzerk!, and now Aliens.

That being said, AliensRL is the first game of this sort I have completed, ever!

Let's see... I started out with no real strategy, used the M43A and combat shotty with Advanced Sidearms for about the first half of the ascent, until I ran out of 9mm and luckily found a Colt. The run was rather uneventful, I almost starved out of ammo on level 5, however. I couldn't find that darn elevator up!

The RNG seemed to tease me on this playthrough. Tons of .44 ammo, until I started using a Colt, then no more. I found about 5 smartguns (the earliest of which was on Storage or Military 4) before I saw the matching outfit on level 7, just before the top. All of my early xp went into getting Expert Sidearms, then Basic Medical and Light Weapons after that. I got Heavy just before fighting the Queen, and most of the rest were almost randomly chosen on the way down.

Speaking of which, I notice that the aliens seemed to spawn a lot more frequently, and near my position, on the descent. Which is fine, but unlike usual, there wasn't a message alerting me to this occurrance. Bug or feature? Not noticing being hit by Elites and Hunters suddenly getting 1-3 free shots is the reason why I escaped with 0 medkits. There was a scary moment where one such Hunter left me with 0hp on level 2! That is when I used my last medkit, only a minute or perhaps two before I won.

Speaking of speaking of which, there was a rather startling scene I was greeted with when leaving from Engineering to Main on level 4. On the way down and frantically searching for an elevator, I moved into the new corridor and saw enough aliens to completely block off the way ahead for a good five or six spaces. Like the buggers were waiting for me! I turned back. :)

To cap it off, thanks to Kornel for making such entertaining/addictive games, even one that I can win!

The descent uses separate spawning mechanism.

Good job and congratulations!

Thank you :).

Ah, I forgot that I had another question: what exactly is that graphic in the mortem labeled Graveyard supposed to be?

It's the graveyard, aka a screencap of where you were when you died. ;)

Broken is such a harsh word. I'd call it "Modern Art" and ban anyone who dares to doubt your creativity ;D
