Almost there…

I’m again on a reflexion turn-based game.

This time, it’s roughly based on chess, but you can’t move pieces, you move the screen, and pieces are pushed by the screen edges. See the gif below, I pressed right arrow to scroll the board right, and everything else is played automatically.

Chess

All “required” code done. But of course some polish might help.

Half the levels are done.

I have to do the sounds.

So I’m pretty confident, it’ll be completed today!

 

BTW, check this Jamiroquai clip, it was my first source of inspiration 😉

A game of life variation to relax

It’s the first time I enter the Ludum Dare, and I’m quite satisfied with the result : my compo entry is submitted and everything looks fine.

 

The bad part was the theme that I really hated because it did not narrow the reflexion at all. I had to reboot from 0 on saturday afternoon, because my first proto was too far from the theme. And even my final entry seems quite far : you only get 1 cell to save them all.

 

The good part were: code, graph, sounds… everything else. It went smoothly on every topic.

I decided before the LD that I will try to make a game looking flat with no sprites (only code generated geometric forms), and that was really a good choice to speed things up and make it feel alive, because I’m so bad with graphics :-(

I had no major code issues, appart from some variables not being accessible where I needed them, but it’s the usual shit.

Sound was a major challenge as I did not use my drum machine for over 10 years, but it was like cycling : just 5 minutes and I remembered most basic features, and I just had like 1h of work overall to make an easy track + some sounds.

 

So, now have a look at my Game of Life and rate it please!

PS : I might do an android export next week if someone wants it (just need to make sure sounds, buttons and screensizes are OK)..
