Contest Entry: Clones
« on: May 17, 2011, 03:06:52 pm »
Well, I've started a project I'm tenatively naming 'Clones.'

Basically, you are a blob with the ability to clone yourself, and switch between controlling any of your clones.

I'm probably going to focus on the puzzle-solving aspect of this.
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

Hooray for vague!

Anyway, this sounds like it would be fun.

Hmm this seems interesting. Will there be a limit of useable clones in one level such as requiring to collect food or something? This would be an interesting puzzle, that's for sure.

hmm that's a very good concept you have there :D it sounds like your entry is going to stand out (and probably in a good way) due to the inventiveness -- good luck, bet you'll do exceptionally well with this one :D

Walljumping FTW!

Now that I have basic physics down, it's time to get started on a more sophisticated mapping engine...

Ah, phoo, another awesome physics platformer.

Great job on it so far :D Just killin' my chances.

EDIT: I don't think I've seen any TI games with wall-jumping yet. Nice!

I don't know what it is about wall-jumping, but for some reason, it makes me really happy.

Well, I start to run out of memory at about 42 clones.  Currently, I could compress what I have, and manage to squeeze about 70-80 clones total, but I don't want to go to that extreme just yet :)

That looks awesome! I really like the wall jumping, though It seems to me like the initial stall is a little long. Even so, it looks fantastic! You'll definitely have to incorporate some cloning limitations in the actual puzzles though! :P

Edit: Also, I like how the gray fill floats between clones when you switch control, but when they're all the way across the screen it gets kind of tedious. You may want to make it skip frames as the distance increases.
