Thanks. :)
Yeah, probably only a couple people here have a Mindstorms NXT.
Maybe whoever does can help. :)
Thanks, saint. :) :)
Have a nice day,

Yeah that's the issue actually saintrunner. Most people here are into TI-84 Plus, TI-Nspire, Casio PRIZM or Casio FX-9860G calculator programming and others into computer programming. Since some people here like Spyro543 and Juju likes messing around with electronic devices, I wouldn't be surprised if one of them had a Mindstorm NXT or would be interested in getting one, though).
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I've wanted to get an NXT for a long time now, it's just that those things are so expensive. :/ BTW thanks for mentioning me :)

Well, for the stuff for my game, if you get it off ebay, it cost around $130, with the connector cable and touch sensor and NXT, because the software is free, the one I am using.

Hehe I knew you liked devices like that, hence why I wondered if you had one, but yeah I agree the price is sometimes an issue. The only thing that made me thought you might possibly not be interested is that you tend to be attracted more by very old devices and computers, like the Commodore 64 and TI-99, rather than newer stuff, but sometimes we never know. :P I myself have some money left right now though so I will see.

Hmm, maybe so! cool. :)

EDIT: So how could I make this more like COD Zombies?

Hmm I wouldn't be able to help much on that point, since I never played COD Zombies. What about something similar to the 2D Doom? Of course platforms don't have to be this complex, though. http://www.silvergames.com/flash-doom-2d

Well, I was thinking of how I could make my game more suspensful and creepy, without being a platformer, but a shooter.
Currently there is chunks of guts when the zombie explodes.

Yeah, I do like older computers. Actually I'm currently trying to get my hands on an Atari Portfolio or a CC-40.

That's cool. But you may need to add a few platformer elements in to expand this game much more. I forgot to ask earlier (or I never saw it in this thread): what programming language are you using?

Well, it seems it is sort of too late to make it a platformer. :(
I am using NXC.
