Bubble shooter
« on: November 09, 2011, 02:32:47 pm »
Hello
i'm making a bubble shooter game for nspire cx cas, and i have already quite a lot of coding, but i'm quite a while looking for the right code to find the place where the ball has to fit into the upper collection of balls.
for those who dont know bubble shooter, here's a screenshot:



any help is greatly appreciated :)
btw, in the screenshot you can see that i can shoot balls to the first row, but not to a second one. as soon as a ball takes place on the row, i just cannot shoot to that place istead of taking the next row

btw, did you notice this:



watch the time, that's nice :)

well, it is a game that wasn't possible for black and white screen (unless you make it with textures xs) so i thought, let's try it out and see how far i can get. Well, i came here, but now i'm stuck :)
and if i have to advise something: buy you one, they're really nice, but i noticed that a nspire cas (NOT cx) with OS 3.0 has a faster render of images due to it's black and white screen...

:D This is great ! The CX is really adapted to this kind of games.

For the help, I don't know if that helps but there was a game for TI 83+ that was called Sn00d and that was open sourced, but it is coded in ASM so you'll have to understand it XD

I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I like this game and I myself though of possibly porting it to a calc ever. Looks good.
EDIT: Nick, you should try avoiding double posting(so quickly after each other) and edit your post instead.

Nick, funny post times :)
But I would recommend not to double post, rather edit your last post ;)

Wow looks nice, so this is Bust-a-Move, right?

Also in your screenshot is it me or do the balls zoom in/out slightly at one point? O.O

You should add some backgrounds depending of the stage. :D

I think they are all separate screenshots, which aren't exactly the same.

If you want me to do some beta-testing again I'm here to help! (since I don't have any projects as of yet :P)
You just lost the game.

well, at where i am with coding it isn't really possible to test it, te bug's just too big to play it, cause you can only shoot at one row. But as soon as i fixed it i'll put in online
