#5157012 2D Mobile Game Like Crash Banticoot

Posted by shadowstep00 on 30 May 2014 - 01:28 PM

It has been 2 weeks since I have started developing a 2d platform game for android with game maker. (I'm doing the programming,sound and my friend the art).

 

I really really loved the crash banticoot games for their gameplay and sense of humor.

 

So the game's gameplay is almost identical to crash banticoot games (expect this time it's 2D).

This core gameplay elements will be:

 

Player Movement

 

- Jump (there wont be double jump, at least on the first levels - first release)

- Attack (should he spin like Crash? I want to avoid making the game too much of a copycat. Any suggestions will be very welcomed!) 

- Duck (when the player ducks he wont be able to move)

 

Most Enemies will get killed

 

- When the player jumps above them

- When the player attacks them

 

The player will collect some kind of fruit (maybe yellow grapefruit).

100 fruits == 1 life

 

Boxes:

 

 - Fruit,Life Boxes

 - Bomb Boxes (touch them and get killed)

 - 1 Time Touch Bomb Boxes (allow you to touch them only once before they explode)

 

The first "difference" in this game in comparisson to crash games.

Power Ups inside levels that will make you : 

 - Run faster

 - Jump Higher

 - Improved Attack

 

 

I'm thinking abot making 7 levels and 1 boss fight at first release.

 

I would like you to give me some suggestions about what gameplay improvements can be made in order to create a more fun game that will also distinguish itself from the crash banticoot games.

 

 

This is how the main character looks. 2nhkia8.png

 

 

Thanks in advance!!!

Thanks for taking the time to clarify how this works. :)




#5136046 Recursion in C Programming: Confusion Begins

Posted by shadowstep00 on 03 March 2014 - 04:28 AM

This video helped when I first started using recursion. Explains how recursion works really well.

I think you should take a look.

(Don't worry cause its written in Java. It does not affect you from understanding.)




#5131218 C++ Primer - CodeBlocks

Posted by shadowstep00 on 14 February 2014 - 02:43 AM

I was just going to finish the first chapter of C++ Primer(nothing difficult :P ). When I came across

 

#include <iostream>
#include "Sales_item.h"
int main()
{
  Sales_item book;
  // read ISBN, number of copies sold, and sales price
  std::cin >> book;
  // write ISBN, number of copies sold, total revenue, and average price
  std::cout << book << std::endl;
  return 0;
}

I went to the site the book suggested. Downloaded the MS Visual Studio 2012 files. Then I tried to link the libraries to my project in CodeBlocks and my compiler did not recognise the library "Sales_item.h". Could you help me solve this problem?




#5130995 From C to ?

Posted by shadowstep00 on 13 February 2014 - 03:17 AM

Guys I am determined to learn C++ and do some serious stuff with it until the end of the year. :P 

 

I will take a look at the books you recommended me.

I already started with C++ Primer as it is the most advanced and will get me quickly moving. (see if I can keep up with it)

 

 

Thanks for your suggestions!




#5130755 From C to ?

Posted by shadowstep00 on 12 February 2014 - 02:27 AM

So I want to move on from C to an object oriented language. (C++, C# or Java)

 

My C knowlege is not that advanced.

But I have learned all the basics of the language. (pointer,arrays, structures, input output files, dynamic memory)

 

I don't plan to move on Java because I am going to learn it along with my university class next year.

 

This leaves me with C++ and C#. I think it's best for me to move on to C++. But there's a big fuss on learning C++  the C way. And because I know C I don't want to start using C in C++. This is something I want to avoid.

 

So I want a book that doesn't learn you to program the C way in C++. I don't care if it's an super introductory book I don't mind. I just want the book to explain well the object oriented concepts and the best way to program in C++.

#5127728 Find Min with Recursion

Posted by shadowstep00 on 31 January 2014 - 08:10 AM

thanks :)

 

Is it necessary to have 2 different index?

Because I think this also works too. 

double recursive_min(double T[], int n, int *index){
	if (n == 1){
		*index = 0;
		return T[0];}
	else{
		double x = recursive_min(T, n/2, index);
		double y = recursive_min(T + n/2, n - n/2, index);
		if (x < y){
			return x;}
		else {
			*index = *index + n/2;
			return y;}
	}
}



#4958289 C++ As First Language

Posted by shadowstep00 on 12 July 2012 - 01:39 AM

Thank you for trying to help me Posted Image , but Guys now i start getting a little comfused here, cause many say stick with C++, others start with C# or Java or Python.


From what i see in Amazon, Python has some really well made introductary books like this one http://www.amazon.co...howViewpoints=1 (very positive reviews) and this http://www.amazon.co...howViewpoints=1 (great reviews too)

While in C# i still havent found a good introductory book. (dont like Head First neither C# programming language cause its not really a tutoral than more of a reference)

In C++ I am a little comfused, first because some peoeple say it is not such a bad first language when others disagree (Well we have discussed this theme already and you dont have to start giving arguments why its better or not cause I have already seen the two sides of the opinion)What I would like you to do to help me is to tell me if there is really a good book to start with this language cause all we have mentioned so far are not good (by your opinions neither C++ Primer Plus nor C++ Without Fear).

In Java i found this http://www.amazon.co...9&keywords=java and http://www.amazon.co...8&keywords=java if you have any other good books to recomend me better that these two tell me to check them out.


So what I really want from you is to tell me which language you prefer most and a good introductory book with it. I will check all the books reviews and see what is better for me. Thanks Again!

P.S. I forgot something important.. if i am about to learn a diffrent launguage from C++ I want to learn it and be ready to move on C++, not learn a second launguage again and then go to C++.


#4942940 Classic JRPG nowadays

Posted by shadowstep00 on 24 May 2012 - 10:29 AM

I got your point. I think that a team with 3-4 dedicated members can make a game worth playing. If they would work for the project about 1-2 years they could actually manage making a really big and nice 2D JRPG (I do not inlcude the story,dialoges and the battle system concepts this will be made before they start working so dont count that too). With that said i think an organised program of what to do each time will get the job done.

Yes turn based can be really boring for someone who really doesnt like it but i think with the right changes of the casual system battle it can be transformed into something more creative,quick and challenging to make the user more active to the battle, make it more beautiful to watch and FUN!

I believe that a nice combination of gameplay, graphics and story can take good reviews by gaming sites and as a result get big sales.

I think its all about dedication and hard work Posted Image
