Zombie Gun
« on: December 19, 2011, 10:34:02 pm »
Latest Update

No screenies atm, but I've started a new project (likely for ceme contest 8 )

It's similar to the iOS Zombieville, where you control a guy fighting off the endless hoards of zombies so that your own brain doesn't get eaten.

The premise: Shoot the zombies. With guns. Lots of bullets. That sort of thing. (Still working out some of the details)

I'll keep you guys posted.

One thing: I'm thinking about an alternative style control scheme: you  move left/right with 2nd and MODE and use the arrows to shoot in either direction independent of what direction you are moving in. Thoughts?

So is this like a 'god' view or a raycasted view, or what? Sounds really cool!

Nah, it's just a sidescroller. I was going to make it top-down like Geometry Wars, but I think that it's actually more fun this way :P

Hmm, your control scheme, in that case, is the same as what I have been using in Seeker, but opposite....AND I REALLY LIKE IT IN SEEKER!! lol :) I think it will work great, Good luck

I'm not familiar with Zombieville, so I can't give any suggestions. Maybe prototype both and ... oh wait. You can't release any code or demos before the contest. Never mind, is there a flash version?

Here's a screenshot

The bullet/enemy collision detection seems a little glitchy, I'll have to look at that code over again :P I think I might actually just be displaying the enemy sprites/positions wrongly...
Also I need a new zombie sprite haha

looks good :)

@ epic7, i think tthat's just a bug/glitch, it seems that something (the gun if those are 2 different sprites but i don't think so) is displayed above the figure, and it's not a special gun, is it?

Looks really good, do zombies come from the other direction as well?
