So You Want to Create a Game

by Zyll - 48 Hour Compo Entry

1/2 demo / 1/2 game. This was done in about 8 hours after I learned the technology. It should only take 2-5 minutes tops to play through.

Used MS Paint and SketchBook Pro on the iPad for art. Used Screeming Bee's MorthVOX Pro and sfxr tools for sound effects. Programmed in GLBasic.

Was unable to test Mac or Linux version. Let me know if you have any issues.

Bug in the linux version, the graphics are cut off, the window isn't being made large enough to show everything.

I have the same issue as @Rapto85, MacOSX the window is to small and I cannot resize it.

I also have the screen being cut off in the Linux version. And I have no idea what the controls are. Maybe they're on the bottom half of the screen?

Haha hilarious game! Made me have a good long chuckle :) I wish it was this quick and easy to make a game hehe

LOL Cosmo it's the TOP half of the screen that's cut off for me...maybe we could get together? :D

Interesting 'game'. Very different!

How do you exit one of the menus?

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. MadGnomeGamer, there's only one correct answer to one of the menus and the other one is open ended. Time constraints. I'm not familiar enough with GLBasic to troubleshoot the Mac and Linux versions. Sorry to everyone that tried.
