ABOUT/CONTACT US
Abraham Lincoln Land is a sidescrolling platformer, with 100% original music, multiple layer parallax scrolling in 640x480x16-bit mode, lots of action and lots of levels, lots of secrets and secret areas, and lots of things to do and lots of ground to cover. A lot of work, testing, and fine-tuning has been put into this game to make it the best it can possibly be.

This is a demo beta version, which means that this is not the full game (i.e. it isn't finished yet) and that there are a few minor bugs and stuff in the game, but nothing major and nothing that crashes the game as far as I know (see the Known Bugs section of the readme.htm file for a list of the currently known bugs.) Because this game is not finished, suggestions for improvement are welcome, as long as they are reasonable and go along with my original design OK.

Current features include:
  • 16 large levels (1 world)
  • 13 music tracks
  • At least 10 enemy types
  • Many different object and powerup types
  • Gamepad and joystick support for generic 2/4/6/8 button gamepads or joysticks, MS Sidewinder gamepads, Gamepad Pros, and SNES controllers
  • Customization options for keyboard and joystick controls, sound, and more
  • Save your progress in one of 10 save files
  • Want to know more? Read the readme.htm file

The full, finished version will include:
  • Support for 16-bit and 256-color graphics modes and multilayer parallax scrolling at 640x480 resolution
  • More than 32 different environment types
  • 800 large and varying levels in 50 different worlds
  • Lots of secret levels and areas
  • Many different enemy, powerup, and object types.
  • At least 36 tracks of music
  • External level support and a level editor using a flexible level format, allowing you to add new levels, worlds, episodes, graphics, environments, and music to the game, and even change the way the game acts to a certain extent.

FAQ

Taken directly from the game manual/documentation, these are some frequently asked questions about Abraham Lincoln Land. If you're having a problem with the game, read this first to see if your question is answered here before emailing me.

Music

I wrote all of the music in Abraham Lincoln Land. This page has 12 of the 13 music tracks that are in the ALL demo available for download as zipped XM files. (To play these, you'll need something like Modplug Player.) I'm working on redoing the tracks in Abraham Lincoln Land so that they sound the best that they possibly can, and as close to what I originally had in mind as they possibly can, so I'll probably post new versions of ALL's music on this page in the future.

Development Timeline

This gigantic game has taken a few years to make thus far, and I've put a lot of hard work into it. This is where you can see my progress on the game, past, present, and future. Also useful if you've ever wanted to make your own game, and want to see what it takes and the kind of problems you can run up against.


Level Completion Timeline

This page shows my progress on all of the levels in this huge game. It has a U.S. map showing the month I completed each state (world), and a couple of tables showing the date I completed each state and my weekly progress on the levels.
