For no reason other than self-entertainment, I decided to make as much of a game as I could in one night... and I came up with this. For now at least I'm done with it, even though it's hardly playable... System Requirements: -Windows 98 SE or above (recommended Windows XP) -.NET Framework -Stuff Feel free to comment. EDIT: The most levels I've been able to complete is 4... [edited by - coWsaRenOtevIl on November 27, 2003 2:05:16 PM]

interesting concept. I once made a game in one night called "Savage fishtank". You''re a fish, you try to eat bubbles before the other fish which can be computer controlled or human controlled. It was alot of fun. Very arcade style.

I just made a few minor changes to it... here''s Version 1.25. The next version will be tomorrow, and here will be the changes to it:

-upon losing a life, the current level is repeated

-restart level button

-possible: button to go back a level

-minor visual changes

-possible: per-level visual changes

I just get page not founds when I try clicking the links, except the first one... says it''s missing mscoree.dll.

Well, at least he *did* mention that you needed the .NET Framework to run it.

1.0 has some exception error
1.25 says "page not found" from GDNet
2.0 has a 404 page error

I just updated to the .Net Framework v1.1 before trying to run this so that is not the problem.

Poop

Ah yes, because John Carmack wrote quake in 5 hours. Now, I could do something mean like say "looking at your post, you have a lot to learn from anyone with some degree of literacy," but I won''t. By the way, why not post with your real username?

I''ll try your game as soon as you get a working link up.


Version 2 link should work now... I replaced spaces with %20''s. I have another version on my hard drive, but I haven''t uploaded it yet. I need more feedback on design issues (is there anything that might actually make it fun? It seems to me that some kind of actual goal would help). If I get any good feedback, I''ll make another version, if not, I''m done... I spent a total of about 7 hours on it already.

Hey.
Nice little game.

Could use more graphically (maby colours/shapes changing instead of numbers), but hey it was a quick job so definately impressive!

Kind of reminds me of minesweeper crossed with a ''push the blocks'' puzzle game.

Cheers,

Thanks. I agree, it needs more colors... maybe a little distinctive character to walk on the blocks too.

EDIT: How about this for an objective: The number of negatives you are allotted is increased by several, and the number you have left over is added to your cumulative score. You win when you reach a certain cumulative score. Then there could be a "best times" list, like in minsweeper

Good,good.... i should be greatful to my parents for allowing and helping me to learn 4 languages but i''m getting kinda sad when i see that there are people which can''t even speak normal english. My only advice is to read more books...

Including yourself, it seems.

cowsarenotevil: Version 1 works, Version 2 is "not a valid Win32 Application"
