PointStar (namechange:The gravity of a situation)

Post by masterchief on Mon Nov 19, 2012 4:19 am



Making a platformer game atm :p Already got allot of the core game mechanics, like collision detection, powerups, physics, dynamic sprite Movement.
Here is the game in action of how the build currently is.

The healthbar doesn't work in the video, although I fixed that yesterday. And yes, the sprite doesn't has arms when he is running atm.

I see a metroid style door on the right there! Thought you could sneak that one by me did you? Razz

Seriously though, that's pretty sweet. Are you doing this for class or for fun?

Just for fun. Although the codes I use, I can reuse for school some assignments.
Like for instance how I made the collission, the physics,...

And i've never really played metroid >.< I was more thinking about commander Keen then something else when developing the core.


And Booya! got a new class within the game. Bullets are working!!
They don't want to be deleted though. Stubborn motherF#ckers don't seem to hit anything.
Something new to fix!

If I were to keep adding classes that calculate something per each frame and not delete them. You will get a stack overflow.
To many items for your ram to calculate. If it's empty, every program will freeze.

And we don't wan' the game to freeze computers do we? Smile

Well, maybe that could be the point Razz How far can you get before your computer freezes? Very Happy


So C doesn't have classes, and OpenGL uses code very closely related to C. That means you're probably either using C++/# or maybe Java even?

I'm making it cross compactible. I'm writing it so it can be made in Xna (c++/csharp) or actionscript.

After it's all done it's just a matter of copy pasting the codes.

Blinking red things are checkpoints? I saw a couple times when you went back an old checkpoint turned on, wouldn't you want it to ignore that checkpoint if there was a newer one?

Should be simple enough in code if you give checkpoints integer values to see if the currently saved checkpoint is greater than the one you're running through.

I'm gonna use an old gaming trick, the reusing of game levels Wink
But then with some things changed. So you will probably have to save at a certain point at the same checkpoint again.

Wow, that's certainly come a long way Surprised 

I keep seeing gravity type games in the iOS app store and every time I see a new one come out, since you started this thread I think to myself "THEY STOLE CHIEF'S IDEA!!!"

With graphics that fancy I bet you'll make a killing on the app store.  Cool

 I hope so =p really doing my best! But my game will be a more oldschool dosLike game.
The gravitationchanger is mere a tip of the iceberg of things you will encounter. Most game developer nowadays tend to make 1 specific gameconcept.
Wich they create their full game around it.

And for the hell of it I added another visual aspect.
background paralax!

Nice! Put some videos up there, make an epic trailer, and get some fans drooling over it. Build up the hype!

When you get close to an iOS release you should send the trailer and a review copy out to the toucharcade.com forums so maybe they will pick up on it and give you a review. You should be able to send them pre-release copies for review also.

People in the iOS scene will really get behind a good indie game.

Defenitly. I'm still looking for people to send review copies to. I'm probably going to ask someone I know to write about it in a famous local game magazine :3

This is looking better all the time. I like the new name too. Shorter names are usually more memorable anyway.

That little flying droid, that's the Star Wars influence right? Very Happy

Yeah, love the new name. Can't wait to see how it all works. If you get it written up someplace big (or even someplace small) post some links so we can all drool over your newfound fame and fortune!
