Lobachevskiiby myachin - Compo Entry
Shooter in Lobachevskii geometry.
(Flashdevelop, Haxe+OpenFL, Photoshop)
ARROWS + [X]
FX: [P] [L]
My first idea was a huge world on one screen without scrolling. I wanted to make adventure/rpg in big world but on one screen with lens effect. Fortunately I'm mathematician) So i looked for some beautiful map from space to screen.
Originally spaceship was just test for geometry-engine. But 50% of LD-time I spent for geometry calculations. It was really hard and i'm lucky. So I decided: no adventure/rpg) Then I generated big space image for lens and wrote lens-algorythm. Then I made tutorial for this space and basic gameplay. I haven't time for music, sounds, level-design, deep gameplay etc. But this is really model of Lobachevskii 2d-space. And I proudly presents Lobachevskii-game for you) And I hope you enjoy it.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
