Welcome to the fourth installment of the beloved community puzzle game: Befuddle Quest 4 Dead Using a specific product, RPG Maker 2003, we will each make a single map puzzle using RTP OR your own supplied graphics (that mesh with RTP) and I will link them together in a quest. Why RM2k3? Because it's accessible to the majority of people and because it's pretty easy to link maps together using it. Plus, I'm running the show and that's what I use (because I'm old). Also, that's what we used last time and it worked out okay.

For those of you new to the BQ scene, check out this game: Befuddle Quest, or this game: Befuddle Quest 2: Charmed & Dangerous! or this game: Befuddle Quest 3: Love is a Four-Legged Word

When we last left Zack and Broomhilda, they had absconded with the late Duke Drake the Rake's airship and were sailing off into the sunset. Now happily married, the happy couple went on a happy vacation to a happy little island...or so they thought!

Zack's and Broomhilda's honeymoon on an island turn out to be....AN ISLAND OF ZOMBIES! Of course, Broomhilda is wisked away by evil zombies and now Zack, stranded and lost on the island, must make his way through the perilous perils of the mysterious island to save her!

Befuddle Quest 4 Dead Goes Live!

After a bit of a delay (on my part) Befuddle Quest 4 Dead is finally released!

Even after my exhaustive and extensive testing (I made sure each map loads and is at least solvable :D ), there are a few known bugs:

- In the Pillar map, near the entrance there is 2 pillars with no rocks. If you try to jump from the ledge above it to the pillar on the right, the event will hang and you have to shutdown the game.
- In "My pet Zombie" if you guide it onto your Reset Switch, you are stuck :). (why would you do this?)
- In Cabin Fervor, the second chipset should be activated when you kick the fire behind the cabin from the top, causing the cabin to burst into flames. Instead it loads ... some other chipset and renders the map not only ugly but also unpassable! (because I didn't point it to the right chipset!)

Kazesui has fixed the first two already and re-uploaded the game (it is pending still) but the last is still an issue. But the game is playable - just avoid doing the stuff that leads to the bugs!

Overachiever Award:
Befuddle Guns

Didn't really see one this time around! I guess I need to play more games!

Shake Fist In Frustration Award:
3 Cup Flip (actually, I think this puzzle is brilliant!). Also, Befuddle Guns.

THE KENTONA THOUGHTS ::..

kentona - My Pet Zombie
A neat idea, but never realized it's full potential due to the lack of creativity and cleverness of it's implementer.

Liberty - Diggin' the Dead
The tinting was a bit much, but the twitch puzzles were kinda fun!

AABattery - Switching Things Up
One of the funnier maps in the game - the dialouge makes it. The puzzle itself is a simple shell game. My freind.

Aten - 3 Cup Flip
Brilliant!

Kazesui - Time is on my side
Kazesui is either a genius or a madman. There are 4096 combinations to try, and my brute force methodology was not up to task. I had to read the walkthrough. Cool idea, though!

Kazesui - Befuddle Guns
Kazesui is either a genius or a madman. This game is really cool BUT OH SO HARD! I was never really good at Duck Hunt, either. Very impressive, technically!

Hexatona - Perilous Pillar Paths
A fun and funny little puzzle, perilous to those of us who need to open every single chest!

AznChipmunk - Casette Collector
A really great puzzle that is a good blend of puzzly fun, interesting game mechanic, and difficulty. I liked this the most because it was challenging without being frustrating.

Gibmaker - Crystal Crag
Another really great puzzle that is a good blend of puzzly fun, interesting game mechanic, and difficulty. It is based on some old game I had never heard of, so it was fresh and new to me! One of the few hard puzzles that I managed to beat on my own.

Mary4D - Haunted House
A tad on the simple side, but a nice quick puzzle. Small puzzles like these help break up the game, so I like them.

SquishyWizard - Scarlet Facade
This is a fun and frantic puzzle! Dodging the zombies in town was a lot more fun than you'd think, and the final battle is even more so!

thedjt - Bridges. How Ironic.
I love the name. The puzzle is a little simple but the dialouge in this makes up for it.

VideoWizard - Zombie Room
Another quick small puzzle. It was okay.

Mikemc - Cabin Fervor
Now that song is stuck in my head. Thanks Mikemc.

Fractal Advocate - Zombie Hard With A Vengeance
A close runner-up to the Overachiever award. This is a long a clever 5 part puzzle that served as the basis for the story of BQ4D this time around. For part 3, you have to push the bad guy into the pit.

Craze - Zombieconomy Sim
Craze's promise to make a new economy sim was the reason why BQ4D was even made. Thankfully, he delivered with another great minigame! #!@$% bones!

That is the most Majestic background I've ever seen.

Am I doing this right?

Just looking at this page is making me hungry! ^.^
You oughta make the background fixed.
Finally. The background's cool.

Due to the promise of a few last minute submissions (and due to the fact that I haven't made any progress on this :) the release date will be pushed back a few days. Let's say....the 18th.

UPDATE:

I am making some progress on this. Slowly.

I have currently added the following puzzles to the game:

kentona - My Pet Zombie
Aten - 3 Cup Flip
AznChipmunk - Casette Collector
Mikemc - Cabin Fervor
Fractal Advocate - Zombie Hard w/ Vengeance


Incidentally, who sent me only the MAP0003.lmu file?
That could have been me. You'll probably need to add the charset from the befuddle guns for it to work(Object617), rest is rtp.

Welp, I've added all the maps to the main project (finally). Now it is a matter of playing through the ones I haven't played through yet (and trusting Kazesui when he says Befuddle Guns is winnable). Oh, and adding a (lame) ending, of course.
They escape on a helicopter. I'm pretty sure Zombie Games don't use that one.

Welp, did up the ending, made the credits - now all that's left is testing out about 7 more puzzles and then uploading it! Expect it tomorrow sometime.
