My new NXT game, about a jumping square (need help!)
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:21:47 pm »
Hi,

So I am making a new NXT game. It is so far just a jumping 3x3 square that jumps around. The game is in 4-lvl grayscale. The collision is checked pixel-by-pixel, by checking if a pixel is on or off.
It works like this for collision:
1) First, it turns off the refeshing of the screen
2) It draws black pixels representing solid pixels.
3) It checks if the player collides with them and saves it to a variable
4) It basically clears the screen and draws the pixels that kill the player when touched
5) It checks collision for that and saves it to a variable
6) It draws what is actually seen, and the player
7) The screen refreshing is turned back on, so you only see the last part, step 6

So the collision is pixel-by-pixel, which is less limited than what I normally use, tiles.
So the question is, where should I go with this? what should it be?

thanks, and have a nice day,
nxtboy III

Check out my game Seeker (in my sig) this game reminds me of it a bit. Also this sounds cool! And I am glad to hear you are continuing the NXT development!

It has potential for a platformer, or possibly something more complicated with RPG elements? I don't know.
Also it would be interesting to have enemies that are circular, triangle shaped etc.

Yeah, it will be a platformer. Thanks, saint!
And what makes the square seem alive is that it bounces slightly when you are not even moving.

What you could also do is put "friendly" faces on the square and enemies. It'd look funny.
EDIT: Oh I tried your game saintrunner and realised that your game does have funny faces. This was after I suggested the above. :P

Cool! I don't know if you have a calculator but if you do, do you know if the language is similar?

Yes, I have a TI-84 plus. What language are you talking about for the calc? And you want me to tell you if what I use for my NXT and what you are talking about for the calc are similar?

EDIT: The language I use to program my NXT is similar to C.

EDIT2: So what should it look like when the player dies?

So, I have a little explosion effect when the player dies, but I need something better. What should happen when the player dies?
Also what types of pixels should I add? Currently I have solid and killing pixels. I'm working on the enemies but they are having some scrolling issues.

When the player dies, you could invert the screen and freeze anything else around him to get a bit of a dramatic effect in there :D

Yeah, that's a good idea! What about a death screen or something?

So now that I have some bugs fixed, what should I add to this game? So far you are just a square who moves around and is chased by enemies. However, I am having a problem with the enemies going up slopes. Could somebody help?

Thanks. :)

Lol, erm maybe. What should the death skreen be like?
Should it say "game over" or "you died" or "You lost The Game" or whatever? What kind of objects should it show?
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Maybe you could make a black screen, with white lines like following the lines of a body? That would be an idea for a death screen.
Or you could invert en freeze the screen like hellninjas allready said, and then after a second or three zoom in on the player or something like that.

PS: looks like it's going to be a nice game
