2D GameDev Challenges - January 2018 (Missile Command)

GoliathForge

1051 views

LightningCommandScreen.jpg

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.

      Hello Friends!, 
      I'm looking for enthusiastic Java Programmers and 2D Artist that have nice attitudes and are in love with their work.
       
       
      What the Project is about
      I want to make this project very flexible and beneficial for all my partners, so we will be working on a basic 2D Gaming library that can be used to easily create fantastic 2D games. (in our vision)
      and while this library is under development we will be creating a 2D farm game to test the libraries features, this will be officially the first game we are going to release using our library.
      -----------------------------------------------------------
       
      I don't really prefer any advance skill sets just these basics.
      Java Programmers
      1. Really understand the core concepts of Object Oriented Programming (The most important to me, Im looking for partners that can create core classes the rest of the project will use)
      2. Understand how a Thread is created, handled and ran safely. (This isn't super important because threads are already setup, but you will need to know how to handle them)
      3. Understand how to 2D graphics are created, handled and drawn safely. (graphics are also setup, just need a basic (and mathematical) understanding on how to draw with it)
      4. Must have a basic understanding of pre-calculus, and algebra. (this is optional for the most part,  I only need one Developer that is efficient in these).
       
      2D Artist
      1. All 2D artist are invited, want your content to be in our games? message me!
       
      ----------------------------------------------------
       
      Positions Open
      Lead Java Developer = Open;

      DeadLine
      There will be no deadline, this is a project setup for people who have busier schedules, we will only work on our free time (it will add up!   )
      ----------------------------------------------------
       
      I hope I find some artist and developers that are interested, if you want to contact me you can reply to this thread or simply message me on discord ( codyorr4#2329 )

      Hello, 
      We are an American based videogame development team that crafts games utilizing neural networks, handcrafted art, studio quality audio, and immersive storytelling to provide the player with an unforgettable experience. Our current team comprises of a Software Engineer, Designer, Producer, Audio Engineer, and a systems admin. Obviously we are missing an art staff! Now, that being said, we have outsourced our concept art for the game to an experienced artist. We are wanting talent to join us to take it the rest of the way with animation and art. If you are interested in joining the team and feel that you are ready to work along a committed team, send a sample of your work and contact information to kyle.cirkl@HereticArts.com. 
      Job Specifics: 
      General: 
      Unpaid. This is normal. We all have fulltime careers outside of the team, but if there is money to be made upon release, it will be split evenly - no questions asked.  All expenses are paid by Administrative Team (GSuite account). So no worries - We want someone to join, have fun and create with us! Expectations of meeting weekly (via internet) and taking direction from producer.  Open minded  
      Skill sets: 
      Experience in designing and creating character art.  Full adobe suite.  Maya experience preferred.  Experience with developing for the Unity Engine.  Willing to work with design team to incorporate their ideas into art.  Knowledge of game design documentation and how it pertains to art creation.  In depth sprite animation knowledge.

      PROGRESS
      Thought I'd reach out for some feedback on my little project. This is an android two-player game for top-down boxing matches. The core mechanics are all that I have accomplished thus far, later I want to add different configurations for your boxer (special effects, increased health or damage, etc) and maybe even a single player AI to practice against.

      FEEDBACK
      Right now the gameplay feedback I'm looking for is on the fundamental mechanics of the game.

      One area of particular concern is the window of opportunity for a player to block after their opponent has begun a punch. Currently that window is one-tenth of a second, otherwise you will be to late to counter their blow. I want it to be difficult to successfully pull off a block and have it be something that requires real attention to accomplish. I'm wondering though if it isn't too difficult right now, which may encourage mindless button mashing, which is certainly not what I want to condone.

      Another consideration is whether having three main actions (block, attack, charge) provides a good balance. My idea with having three main areas is that your two thumbs will have to leave one section uncovered at all times. This should result in hand movements that telegraph actions to the opponent.

      Aside from these, any other constructive criticism is very welcome.

      LINK
      My game can be found at the Google Play Store here:
      https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.meatandgrain.PunchABunch

      NOTE There is a known graphics error when performing a special punch. There are no doubt other unknown errors as well.

        Thank you for your time, I hope you'll be able to find some fun in this little game!
