AoD - Demo v0.5

*EDIT #1: Re-uploaded links. Addressed the FATAL ERROR: Unable to find instance '-4' issue.

It's a long way down.

Added a whole bunch of functions like simple sequencing to game intro and game over handling. Also, there is now proper handling of player game-over. That means (for now) if you are defeated, you will have to restart from ROUND [1] (but I included an option where you can just skip to the boss).

I'd like to know how you'd find the difficulty of the AoAudacia so far. So let's see you trying and reach the boss in ROUND [10]!

Also, I've been thinking if Bosses should have their own animations. It only makes sense to reward (the animation to) the player for having beat the Bosses, but that also means more animation work for me. For now, the Bosses will be using the same animations as the lesser enemies, until I decide to include Bosses-only animations.

This release really took a long time. I'm freggin' exhausted.

Release Notes - v0.5
  1. Spawn enemies up to ROUND [10] with Boss at the end.
  2. New skills "Double-edge" and "Bulwark".
  3. Player can now fall to death when step out of arena.
  4. Player now can be defeated upon losing all health.
  5. Changed aim-direction of shield throw.
  6. Simple intro sequence.
  7. Round restart handling.

  1. Nothing happens after ROUND [10]. You will have to restart game by jumping off the cliff or pressing F2.

Known Bugs
  1. You might run into a fatal error (game will abort) stating "instance cannot be found". I have applied some codes to curb this error but I might have missed some parts.
