I'll call it a game ...
Tetris 2048 Canvas HTML5 Finished
Here it is: http://www.procgames.com/demos4/notprocatall.html (might have seen that coming if you saw the last journal entry...)
Well, it is anything but finished ... only in the sense that I will not work on it any longer ... and it is buggy as hell.
I implemented the recursive trickling of merged tiles the ugly way ... and I did add
- the removal of full rows (as a way to deal with low numbers under higher ones)
- score counter
- and a game over screen (which has a hard time showing up but it usually does eventually).
1.) I am not turning this into a habit. I work as a programmer and I have to search for bugs and work on the same code for weeks or month. The resilience is there, working on this project would only be a nuisance.
2.) I have reached the goals:
- I know how to use the cavas now
- What I have gives a nice enough impression of what a combination of the game mechanics feels like
4.) It is not something that people are interested in. Hopefully nobody will study the code. People also apparently don't want to see a tutorial about basic games (https://www.gamedev.net/topic/654740-what-are-you-interested-in/?mode=show)
5.) It has nothing to do with procedural content generation ... which is what is currently occupying my mind. My heart is not in the project ...
So what is next?:
