[TI-Concours] Mister Oops!!
« on: April 22, 2012, 11:58:03 am »
I am proud (not really :P) to announce what will (most likely) be my contest entry for the 3rd round ;D
For those who own it on their iPhone/iPod/iPad, you can skip the description.

For the others, Mister Oops!! is a game in which you control Mr Oops, and for some reason, you are trapped on a checkerboard with objects trying to kill you. This is like The Game: you can't win. The aim is only to make score. When you die in a level, you pass to the next and there is only 3 levels in the free version (I don't own any Apple device and I can't convince my friends to pay for the non-free version :P).

But I added the Kamikaze mode (name can be changed) in which objects are "randomly generated".

And for your viewing pleasure:
← Classic mode
← Kamikaze mode

(note: I didn't make this topic before my game looked like a game but it is far from finished)
(note 2: the grey is not that beautiful on a real calc :P but the game runs a bit faster)

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.

The graphics look very nice, and the gameplay too :)
It look kinda hard, though...

The black lasers could maybe look better, I think that you should make them look like electric arcs.

Good luck for the contest!

Wow, amazing o.o When I first saw it, I was worried that it was like my game idea, but it is nothing the same XD This will be tough!

Thanks :)
I tried to make it look like the original game to show people how the iPhone is useless if a 84+ can run the same games :P

It look kinda hard, though...
Nope, it is just me, sucking at my own game :P

Yes, they are ugly. In the real game, they are not black but white inside and orange outside, but, first, the calculator doesn't support the orange color :P and secondly, my program would be too slow if I make it support white objects: I would have to reload the back buffer each time (see, the rolling stones are transparent, not white).
And electric arcs would be awesome but even slower and harder to code x.x
But thanks for the suggestion :)

Good luck for the contest!
Thanks :D

And yeah, this was one of the reasons for making a topic, so that people don't have the same ideas :P

Or you could make them 6 pixels wide instead of 8...
(I'm not sure this will be better, and anyway they are not that ugly)

O.O I just tried this on my calc and it is far better like that !
Thanks a lot :D
(and yes, they were that ugly :P)

edit: This even adds an unexpected effect that the 8 pixels used to hide: see the thing "gliding" on the laser ;)

Edit (Netham45): Removed broken attachment, please reupload it.

edit (Hayleia): Done

But this is also a problem that I am so far: this is my first greyscale program (I made the checkerboard between the 1st and the 2nd round (but not more)) and I only know how to use interrupts now. So making greyscale look better would be hard without rewriting a lot of it :-\

Yeah, I think all attachements and download files are currently broken because of the move.

Wow. That is just the kind of actiony, fun, and challenging game we need for calculators. (Looks really, really fun!!!)

Also, that font looks familiar.... ;)

one suggestion. IIRC, the original Mr.Oops has a cannon ball that has a slightly different speed. Maybe you can implement that as well?

Yeah, I use the BLOCK font you posted in the zStart topic ;)
I only changed the cursors.

Well this is the fault of Axe's rand routine if you didn't see this :P
Watch one of the two first screenshots for a "long" time and you'll see that I already do that (they can have 2 speeds).

And this one.
