MeAndMyShadowX (new release)


Recommended Posts

by hcf


This is a port of the amazing videogame "Me and my Shadow" (http://meandmyshadow.sourceforge.net/).

Me and My Shadow is a free libre puzzle/platform game in which you try to reach the exit by solving puzzles. Spikes, moving blocks, fragile blocks and much more stand between you and the exit. Record your moves and let your shadow mimic them to reach blocks you couldn't reach alone. Included:

* Tutorial for beginners
* 2 level packs containing over 40 levels
* 18 different block types
* Original music by Juho-Petteri Yliuntinen
* Cross platform

moving in the menus
After launching the game, select "PLAY" in the main menu, and you will go to the "Level Selection" screen. In this screen, you can select a "LEVEL PACK" (pressing LEFT or RIGHT), but I recommend to start with the level pack named "TUTORIAL". There are other packs named "DEFAULT" and "CLASSIC", and another named "LEVELS" that is empty.

After selecting your level pack, press DOWN and then you can select one LEVEL to play, inside of that level pack. At the begining, only the first level of each pack will be available, but you will get more levels when you finish them.

NOTE 1: In every screen/menu, if you don't see the cursor/options, press DOWN and they will appear.

NOTE 2: In the Xbox version, there are only 2 working options in the main menu: "Play" and "Quit". The other options (Editor, Options, Addons) are disabled.

how to play
After selecting a level, the gameplay will start. You must move your character (the white man) to try to go to the exit with him. Besides, you can RECORD the movements of your character and then replay them WITH YOUR SHADOW. Shadows can only be controled by recording player moves and let shadow mimic them. If your shadow goes to the exit, you win too.

Lots of elements will appear in different levels, like teleporters, interchangers, recorders, switches to move/stop blocks, breakable blocks, blocks that only affect to your shadow... I recommend playing the tutorial to learn about them!

D-pad: Move your character. Move the selection in the menus.

A button: Jump

B button: Action (push a switch, activate a teleporter...)

X button: Press once to start recording your moves. Press again to stop recording. After you stop recording, your shadow will mimic the moves that you recorded! You can record movements, jumps, and even actions like pressing the B button.

The X button is also used to go to the NEXT LEVEL, after you have beaten one.

Y button: Toggle between viewing your position, and the position of your shadow.

WHITE button: Load game (this is useful to load your progress in a level, after you saved it pressing B-button in one of the "checkpoints").

START: Restart de current level

BACK: Exit from the current level. Exit to the upper menu.

You can beat a level arriving to the exit door, and you will get a medal. But the kind of medal will be different, depending on the time that you spent to arrive. If you want to get the GOLD medal, you must arrive to the exit in less time than the "Target time" marked for each level.

I want to say thanks to all the people that helped me in my projects and my learning: Neobomb, Hyper_Eye, Madmab, Freakdave, weinerschnitzel, XtecuterX73, SPPV, the Surreal64 CE team... Big thanks too to the creators and porters of the SDL library for Xbox, and of course big thank to the creators of the original "Me and My Shadow" game.

Besides, big thanks to all the people that make possible the Xbox scene and the emuxtras project, Neobomb, Wimpy, Waal, Madmab, Perr, Mega Man, SPPV... Thank you very much for your work!

The sources of the emulator are in the same package, so if anyone wants to see them and try to improve them, it will be very wellcome. You can contact me if you want to do it.
