Dimension Shift
« on: May 18, 2011, 11:58:26 am »
EDIT: this was originally called "Extreme Tic-tac-Toe: Contest Entry"

Something like tic-tac-toe, but with sub-fields (a 3*3 grid for every square in the main board, maybe another layer beneath for a really long game) that you have to win to "gain" the larger square (put you mark on it, either an X or an O).  Maybe some fighting/arcade (or perhaps a random medley of simple arcade games) aspect or something fought against an AI or another player to gain the squares in the sub-fields can be added, or it could just be pure strategy.  Game is won if user gets three of their X/O in a row in the master grid.
↑↑ that.
I'm going to make it two-player in the entry, rather than stress myself over the AI.  I would try to do link play, tho I can't really test it with a casio cable atm :P
Expect to see a few random mini-games screenies in the near future. ;)

Also, more creative title pending...

You have to solve the problem in Tic-Tac-Toe explained in War Games somehow.

This sounds pretty unique and pretty cool.  It also sounds slightly complex, so good luck! :)

Can you elaborate on what that is a bit?  TIA

And yeah, this is going to be interesting to code.  I'm starting by making the little mini-games that'll determine the ownership of a square.  So far I've made a simple pong game, under 820 bytes ;D

I'll need to read up on how to do a sort of SHUMP, and idk what else from there.
What the hard part is is finding really simple games, easily made 2-player, which are small and fit into the contest rules, I'm not sure pong is one of those but oh well :P

Basically, look up "Tic-Tac-Toe impossible" or something.

Axe Shift: Contest Entry 2011
« Reply #5 on: May 19, 2011, 10:41:15 pm »
Yeah, That can't really be guarded against unfortunately :P

As of yet, I haven't been able to do much for this.  For the game to have the real enjoyability it would need something other than just pure strategy and such, and I haven't been able to find any two-player puzzle games, small enough to fit in under 1K or so (which pretty much puts a platformer out of the question for this).  I'm thinking of changing ideas, maybe porting Shift to Axe (yes, I know it's already made with xLib) or something like that...

EDIT: Shift it is.  Couldn't easily find anything else that wasn't an smartphone app :P

Shift is also free online, and soon also soon be on the calc in Axe as well as the existing xlib.
I'm debating whether to make this 4*4 or 8*8 atm...

*points to poll

I vote for 5*5, like Portal and Graviter. :)

Judging by the poll, 8*8 it is.  Now to start spriting and adapting.
Fortunately, Shift isn't very graphics-intensive so the only thing I'm going to have trouble with is making an 8*8 running person...:P
Anyway, I have a level editor written and debugged for 4*4 tiles, I just need to change the sprites and wacky fun random numbars and I'm set ;D

w00t! Sounds fun! Shift is one of my fav online games! And now I really have to get an 84+ before the competition ends. And I'll have to learn Axe.
