[Axe] Towers (or some other name)
« on: May 14, 2014, 05:00:42 pm »
Those of you who frequent IRC may have seen me talking about a game I've been cooking up. I'm looking at you, pimath  >:D . Anyway, I'm here to announce the first version of this game. Screenshot available below. It's a variation of the classic sliding tile game. I hope I can get more into this.

Looks great! I like the player's sprite and the "next level door".

It's funny how detailed a sprite can be in 64 pixels or less.

Looks nice indeed. Just make sure to offer some different puzzles than the existing towers games (The Psyche and Cubes come to mind), so it stands out. Maybe pushable blocks and deadly obstacles too? Since the game is called Towers, this reminded me of Tower Defense games, so maybe there could be towers that shoot you if you pass nearby. :P

That is a PERFECT idea. Now I have a lot of ideas to implement.

Makes me think of my game Escape. It looks nice though, I always like these types of games.

Nice!
Also, is there any reason to the huge slowdown when drawing the tilemap?

This is just a little animation I added because my friend thought that each map was pre-rendered. i will probably take it off when I start optimizing.

Wait so you mean that each level is randomly generated?

I think he meant that his friend thought the levels were pre-rendered as images, while they are stored in an other way (most lickely as tilemaps).
Random levels would be cool though, but I think it would be very hard to create a decent level generator for that kind of game.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Oh that would make more sense.
And yeah, the levels would likely be impossible :/

Looking very nice so far, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. I can't wait to see what's to come with this. ;)

And ClrDraw, looks like, with your game "Escape" (wasn't it written in pure Flash code?), you have some competition. :P
Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?
