I think I’ve just spent the last 3-4 hours completly rewriting my fleet movement/tweening code like 4 times and back again.. and have FINALLY solved my #$^$!@ engineering problem…. arg.

Need a break now… but the good news is I finally have smooth movement of the fleet in all directions and it doesn’t matter how many echeleon patterns you are shifting through…. it is all fine dandy.

Don’t ya love programming?  😉

Fleedom – Fleet Pattern and Movement test

Current build playable here in your browser

Working title is Fleedom. Wanted to handle what I felt would be one of the most challenging parts of my game design which was making a fleet of small ships that you could toggle through various flight patterns while moving.

Got a decent enough working version now.  Z/X toggles next/previous fleet pattern.  Arrow keys move.

Here is the background on my current game’s design

Wall of Space Doom!

So.. finally got an idea I feel like running with on this theme:

First, the mockup!

Anyway.. the simple concept is you are controlling a fleet of the last ships of your race.  You are fleeing your planet as an alien armada of doom approaches.  You will be able to move your fleet up/down/left/right and there will also be a key that lets you toggle the density/pattern of your fleet.  Think of it as able to expand or contract.

You will move through the armada avoiding colliding with capital ships and what will surely be horrendous energy weapons fire as they attempt to anihilate your race.

You must get a least ONE of your ships through the armada to win.  The more ships you get through the larger your bonus at the end for saving a larger gene pool of your race… 😉

Simple idea, hopefully the scope will be one of which I can get a fun, playable game out of before the deadline is up…
