Turn Fighter Foo – post compo version

Posted by
Sunday, September 8th, 2013 3:37 am

After the ludum 27 48 hour compo, I continued to develop Turn Fighter Foo in order to bring out a version that is closer to what I had imagined.

So whats new?

The first major thing (not visible though) is that the code base has been ported from Flixel with Actionscript/Flash to HaxeFlixel  with Haxe/OpenFL. Doing this has the advantage of being able to port it to other platforms natively. Expect something like gamepad support on desktop or a mobile version sometime in the future!

Improved graphics/music

There are a few new hit animations for the fighters as well as new animations for the new moves that they can perform. The background has been spruced up a little to make it less bland and some background music thrown in to accompany the fighting. Here is an example of what to expect:

Improved gameplay

The first major change is a rebalancing of the play matrix for moves. You might have noticed that kick is probably the most overpowered move in the 48hr compo version. I’ve tried to create a version where there is always a counter to any move. For example, kick is now countered by the low sweep like the picture above shows. And air attacks can now be countered by a new uppercut move. The play matrix is still not perfect but it is far better than the 48 hr compo version. Along with the new normal moves, there are also a couple of special moves that I’ve added which were inspired (aka ripped off) from most fighting games. The first is a ranged fireball attack and a move called the phoenix punch which kinda resembles a dragon punch (very original I know! 😛 ). Have a look at the moves list below for how to execute the new moves. More special moves to come in future versions hopefully.

The post compo version now has several options that can be customised such as the ability to hide your inputs from your opponent, increasing/decreasing the number of inputs per turn and changing the turn timer duration (or have unlimited time). The last option enables Turn Fighter FOO to be played in Ippon scoring mode which means that a turn ends as soon as one fighter performs a decisive blow on the opponent scoring one point. The decisive blow occurs when one fighter performs a move that naturally counters the opposing fighter’s current move, thus getting the hit. Score three points and the match is over.

Last but not least, I’ve added an AI player for those that do not have anyone to play with. Yes, there is now a single player mode! The AI is not great but it should be enough to get a flavor of what the game is all about. I’ve gotten feedback regarding my compo version about how some players didn’t have a partner to play with so this one is for those players! :)

The post compo version of Turn Fighter Foo may be found (along with the original version) at my ludum 27 entry page here.

New Moves list

  • Upper cut – down, punch
  • Low sweep – down, kick
  • Jump punch – up, right, punch (if facing right)
  • Fireball – down, right, punch  (if facing right)
  • Phoenix punch – right, down, right, punch (if facing right)
  • Duck – down
  • Idle has been removed as an input. Use block instead.
  • Controls for player 1 has changed to w,a,s,d for up,left, down,right and j,k,l,n for punch, kick, block, clear move list.
  • Addition of new ready button for the unlimited time match. When both players hit the ready button, then the turn plays out. Player1 ready – space, Player2 ready – end.

Hi!

I’m trying to write a postmortem, but so far I’m not very good at it.
The first day I started the stream on Twitch. If you’re interested, you can watch the record. But it will be available some time (problems with uploading).

 

In the game was more important animation and sound. So I’m not worried at the expense of code. It there is very little and it is very simple. And anyway I am very bad programmer. So I decided to focus on the atmosphere of the game.

 

I had an idea in my head to make the main character of the game by myself. Just fun to see myself as the main character in the video game. The character really took over some of my habits from life.  He pulls it out from his pocket like me.  It’s fun. It’s like I went for a walk and fell into my dreams.

Only a little more than an hour before the end of LD. The game as a whole was ready, but there was a very important part – the music. This is the basis of my game. And if I had not had time to make music, then I would not have made the game. Just would not make sense to load the game on LD without music.

 

And luckily I was able to do everything! Yes, I wanted to make more sounds and music, but the time is not left.
All in the game musical compositions 8, 4 individual sounds, 11 phrases (when something cosmic talking with us.)

 

The game turned out not as what was supposed to be, but it was a great experience for me. And it was fun. I love LD.

I will try to write a few more facts about the development (of course if you are interested).

And yes, my English is very bad, sorry for that.
Thank you!

The Escapist – Post LD

ENTRY :: PLAY :: TIMELAPSE

  • I don’t know how to draw.
  • I don’t know how to compose music.
  • I’m not a fast coder.

But somehow I managed to send something for this, my first LD.

I thought about making use of my previously designed Framework, as I posted before, but it turned out to be useless for what I wanted to do. In fact, most of the bugs I had were because of the framework, so at a point I decided to don’t use it. I ended up embedding all the animations by myself, using Actionscript 3 default listeners, and only relying on TweenMax for the animations.

Talking about animations, I mentioned that I don’t know how to draw, so I decided to make easy drawings, but that wouldn’t look good… That’s why I decided to create the line-moving drawings (I don’t know what is the actual name, I’m sure it has one). Also, glow always looks good, so everything was glowed by code.

At the beginning I didn’t like what I was doing, but after I started adding animations, I really liked what I was achieving, I just couldn’t believe it.

I really wished I could have done other scenes (The Escapist tied on a wood plank, going to a chainsaw), but the animations took me so long to make, and the code was getting so messy, I decided to put just one scene.

The code is far from perfect (but it’s really close to hardcode-perfect), and I have some random bugs that attacks and freeze the game without saying a thing, but I think it’s playable (I hope so!).

All I want to say is thanks for making me draw and thanks for making me code fast. Thanks for this opportunity. It was beautiful to see people all over the world uploading pictures of what were they eating, pictures about their workstations, their design docs… It was an amazing experience, and I hope I’m back next time!

I’ve made a few improvements to Col-4, so that now at least I think it’s fun.

Relevant changes are:
– Smaller playing area, but higher.. kind of
– Different speed scale
– Special block
– Now middle area swappable instead of the upper one
– Preview of next block

Download source and Windows binary. Extra clarification note and reminder: this is post-48h, and shouldn’t be used for the voting.
