2D GameDev Challenges - January 2018 (Missile Command)




This challenge was a good run because of

  • Implementing coroutine with IEnumerator and yield return
  • Simple Dictionary based texture manager
  • Basic Particle Engine
  • Ripped GameStateMachine from previous monogame project (joust)
  • had fun making flare particles
  • Did I mention, it's not cool unless it has lightning bolts
  • browsed current scifi google images...nice...inspired.

I'm going after fast iteration. I've already ripped out the parts I like, made asset loading/access consistant in code( texture, sound and font), bumped up ease of input usage and rewrote the state manager to be stacked based similar to my C++ approach. In short, preparing my framework for the next challenge. C#/monogame kicks tail.

haha,  great, I think you could add more stuff that was not in the original version.

I am just hardcoding without thinking about next challenge. Not sure I will have time for challenges.

Lightning is an interesting special effect. Particle implementations are always satisfying. This was a fun one.
