very impressive - how are you dealing with water particles? don't tell me you're doing that much cellular automata at 6mhz :)

Nope, the water is actually part of the tilemap. (Long story. Might post a tutorial on it later.) This way there's hardly any noticeable slowdown even when the entire screen is filled with water (and yes, if you leave it long enough it looks like that) :)

It reminds me a little bit of Minecraft water :D And it looks super epic as well!  The physics of this game look like it's going to make the gameplay fantabulous, can't wait for more updates  ;D

Looks quite nice :D
aka. ZOMG ZOMG SUPER EPICS!


(nice 6x6 sprite you got for the char :o )

Sorta like that, I guess.

Basically, each tile in the tilemap has two bytes. The first byte is the actual tile (block, crate, space, etc.). The second byte is the amount of water in that tile. When water "flows," I look for an empty tile on the row below it and add water to it. (Something like that.)

To make things simpler, all tiles are monochrome, so they get drawn to the main buffer and the back-buffer is all for water. I keep the main buffer static for speed (it gets drawn once at the beginning and only parts that need to be changed get changed), but since water tends to move around a lot, I redraw the back-buffer every frame.
And it looks super epic as well!  The physics of this game look like it's going to make the gameplay fantabulous, can't wait for more updates  ;D
Thanks! I really wanted to make something physics-y a few months back, and this is what I came up with.

I thought it looked like a headless gorilla, but I guess you don't get much room with 6x6 ;D

so it is cellular automata, just with 8*8 cells

this _is_ looking pretty cool =) what kinds of traps do you have planned? maybe this could be some sort of prison-break thing? maybe something bioshock-esque? a high security prison underneath the atlantic ocean.

Well, it's not in a list, so I'd say it's more of a second tilemap.

That's a nice idea :o

It is still technically a grid of cells that evolve in the simulation based on a certain set of rules, so I still think it is classified as a cellular automaton^^

Very clever. Is there any kind of buoyancy involved?

You're right, it's basically cellular automata with seven possible states per cell. I think I forgot what a cellular automaton was there :/

There will be! Or at least that the character will be able to move up and down and "swim" at a slower speed in the water. Otherwise there's not much point in it being there :)

"Watercooling Turret"
"Turret underwater"
"Wet escape"

It's dangerous to go alone without title, take this!
