Well, I have completed mine as well. Sort of. I mean it fulfilled all the basic guidelines, but there''s no way I''m going to leave it as is. I need to add sounds and levels and improve the gameplay among other things.
The game and code aren''t hosted yet, but I''ll do that later.
If you still read this Teej, I would like to thank you so much. I understand that this must have taken a lot of work, but look at how much it has helped everyone. If it wasn''t for you I might have given up on game programming... nah.
Thank you anyways for making the journey a little easier.
Finished. I''ve got all the basics: intro screen with instructions, game play, moving pieces, improved user input, sounds, scoring and levels, etc. I''ve still got lots of plans to improve things but I can honestly now say that I have a playable game.
I didn''t really follow the tutorials all too closely when writing my own tetris clone as they were more useful as a reference, but I certainly would never have accomplished as much as I did if they were not available, let alone finish it.
Three cheers for Teej for putting in the effort he did in helping out us newbies.
