    Vector Chain Attack

    My humble entry: Vector Chain Attack! (pygame source 191kb)

    Chain Attack screenshot

    I think only pygame is needed to play the game. Will try to make a py2exe executable too. Samiljan made one for me, can be found here (6.9mb).

    Move about with ASWD, and shoot with the mouse. Hit the blue chain bits to start a chain reaction, or the red bits to whittle down the chain little by little.

    Lots for me to learn this time, as I did not have much experience with Python or pygame before the competition.

    I spent quite a few hours making my first music track too, so I hope you enjoy the SNES style music (the full 13 seconds of it!). Had lots of fun making it with DrPetters Musagi tracker. Before you go mad, press M to make it stop.

      Very fun! The graphics in-game are worse than the screenshot… The jpg artifact actually helps lol. Maybe if you could add a glow filter or something to the art.

      Anyway, it’s a good start.

      text = font.render(“Vector Chain Attack!”,0,(0,0,200))
      pygame.error: SDL_ttf render failed

      I have no idea what the problem is there. :-(

      Someone in this thread says there has been a problem on Ubuntu with the font rendering. It’s the default font, so it should be fine.
