      I am taking an absolute beginner's game development course and we have just finished game jams in small groups. Our current assignment is to get feedback from people working in any aspect of game development. I would very much appreciate any feedback! The game is up on itchi.io (sound warning) https://wobbegong.itch.io/zombie-shooter It's essentially a very basic PvE.
      I also have some things I'm wondering about, but you don't necessarily have to answer these. 
      1. Do you have any tips on working with physics? My group wrestled a bit with Rigidbody physics not totally working the way we wanted to -- jumping ended up kind of floaty and inclines seem to mess up movement. Alternatively... how can I build terrains with depth that won't result in wonky physics?
      2. How can I keep up the level of challenge in an interesting way as the player progresses through the waves?
      3. What are some of your personal guidelines for creating title screens?
      Thank you very much in advance!

      I'm having a weird issue with detecting a collision. I've tried everything I could find online but nothing seems to work. I have a brick object. It has a 2D Collider attached and I have also attached a 2D Rigidbody on it. I also have an EndScreen 2D Collider. The EndScreen 2D collider is tagged with "EndScreen". I am trying to detect when a brick collides with the end screen collider and simply print "game over" in the console. 
      This is my current code for this part of the program, it is attached to the bricks:
      void OnCollisionEnter (Collision2D collision) { if (collision.gameObject.tag == "EndScreen") { Debug.Log("Game over"); } } Several things have happened depending on the set up. If I have the rigidbody 2D set as static, my ball object can still collide with the bricks, but I get no Log message. If I set it to Kinematic or Dynamic, I get absolutely no interaction between the ball and the bricks, and nothing when the bricks pass through the collider. I have tried to set the collider to a trigger and use OnTriggerEnter2D, no change. I have tried to put the rigidbody on the EndScreen object and tried to set it's body type to all 3 settings, no change. The only thing I can think of that I have not done is put the script on the EndScreen object and switch the tag to the bricks. The reason I have not done this is because I will have several types of bricks, some of which will have different tags. 
       
      Please tell me somebody can see what I'm doing wrong here, because I'm losing my mind over something I feel should be ridiculously simple. Thanks.

Hello,guys!


As the title say i need some help for continue my work.Let me explain this in more details.
I am 14 and i love programming and to learn how to progamm but i am not doing Informatics at school this year(next year i will do)so i started to learn :http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/ after i done with that i started watch a cupple of vids from youtube more speciffic from : cplusplusguy(hes hungary and its very good at programming and explicite)so after i watch 40ep and learn evry day like 6-11h i was thinking to go to an engine,sorry before i forget i`ve done RPG text,Rpg with a @ moving and tic-tac toe,but i saw that if i want to make a game and later to sell it i need to pay...so i think this is wasting time,right?However if this is not working lets try something else,i said so i start learning Allegro with youtube more precisse : codemadeeasy,i am almost finishing all the tuts from him and now i am really wondering!!You may say wath i learnd from him :)
so i learned from him:-how to make a game menu(a really nice one)
-how to use the sprits
-adding sounds
-adding collision
-how to make a sprite moving arround
But now i think i know the basics from allegro and i want to start making some enemys,how to pick and object,put some houses,making towns and staff like that(i forget to say,i know 2D) so i am asking you wath shold i do now?Where i need to go?Wath i need to see?
If u are kind enought to help me out please try to show me a guy who is making tutus on youtube.
Thanks you a lote!
P.S:I am dont want to learn an engine like unity,udk etc..

I'm not sure what you're referring to with this. There can be costs to creating a product you want to sell. These can be in licensing any third party code you use, your development tools (educational licenses often don't allow commercial use), and the cut you pay to whichever market place you choose to sell on. All of these are optional - they help but there are lots of very good free alternatives.

Having said that - My advice would be to not worry about selling anything or the related costs at the moment. In a few years, once you're experienced enough to create a high quality product that you want to sell; you'll have a much better sense of how much everything costs, and what you want to buy or not buy.

You've done a lot of tutorials. The problem with tutorials is that they show you how to do something, but not necessarily teach you how to do it. My recommendation would be to use the knowledge you've gained so far and try creating something entirely on your own. Think up a fun, simple game and try to make it. It doesn't have to be something amazing or unique - just as long as you code it entirely on your own without someone showing you how. Pong or Tetris would be good choices based on what you've done so far.

Remember. Programming is almost entirely about reasoning through a problem and only a teeny tiny bit about syntax (programming languages, libraries etc). You can only learn how to reason through practice and experience.

The natural progression from following tutorials (effectively hand-holding) would be (as above posters have mentioned) to write something completely by yourself; the next stage is for you to write your own programs.

Try not to use tutorials anymore, rather wrestle with any difficulties you encounter (and there will be many), and ask for help on a forum such as this, StackOverflow, etc. if you need help.

Don't worry about asking for help on forums, or googling for any issues you're having with code; or even for ways to do things better. Every programmer does this, from a 14-year-old beginner like yourself, to a industry veteran with 15 years experience.

If you have any programmer who would be kind enough to spend time code reviewing your work, I think you'll find that very helpful.
