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.

    Fails on load for me. running ubuntu feisty, thinkpad t30 (x86)

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “”, line 521, in
    if __name__ == ‘__main__’: main()
    File “”, line 497, in main
    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.
