Cubes on Steroids
« on: November 22, 2012, 12:00:11 pm »
Hello everyone,

I was learning OpenGL and I came up with a game like Cube Runner where you have to avoid incoming spinning colorful cubes. Here's a screenshot. I uploaded the full source code here on Github.

For GNU/Linux users, it should be easy enough to build it yourself:

Code: [Select]
git clone [email protected]:davidgomes/cubes-on-steroids.git
cd cubes-on-steroids/

You just need a few dependencies (Vala, OpenGL, SDL and SDL_gfx).

For Windows users, a friend made me a build, which is attached as It's a .zip because you need some .DLLs.

I made this game mostly to learn and I ended up discovering that Vala+SDL+OpenGL is a great and easy way to make cross-platformly native games.

Any feedback? Maximum high scores?

The procedure entry point g-atomic_int_dec_and_test could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0-0.dll.

I tried running it both unzipped and zipped. Do I have to put the dlls somewhere in particular? Or are they excluded from the zip file?

Also this looks kinda fun to play. It would be nice if future versions required no separate dependencies, though.

Code: [Select]
git clone should do.

Otherwise, it's pretty cool :D
