Bouncy Smash 2017 Bit Awards Nominee

Recommended Posts

 

Hello, Everyone!

My name is Kat, I'm the Community Manager for Bouncy Smash -- an energetic iOS roguelike-ish action platformer developed by IV Studio. I'm a lifelong gamer (courtesy of my parents) and am fortunate to work in an industry that speaks to my heart. I also have an interest in developing my own indie title (one day, when I stop being scared - lol). I look forward to exploring all of your wonderful work and learning from you!

In the meantime, I have some awesome news I’d like to share.

Bouncy Smash is a love letter to the likes of Super Smash Bros., Monument Valley, Donkey Kong, and Alto's Adventure. I'm excited to announce that Bouncy Smash was nominated by Playcrafting for The 2017 Bit Awards for Best Mobile Game of the Year. This category recognizes games that deliver the best experience across all mobile platforms.

For those who aren’t familiar, The Bit Awards celebrates games and the people who make them over the course of a year. Categories include: PC/Console Game of the Year, Mobile Game of the Year, Tabletop Game of the Year, Best Style (audio and/or visuals), Best XR Game (augmented, virtual, or mixed reality), Best Student Game, and the Player’s Choice Award. To be eligible, all games must have shown at a Playcrafting event in New York, Boston, and/or San Francisco.

Words cant express how grateful we are to the community who supported us along our journey of developing Bouncy Smash. We’d love to see you at The Bit Awards Ceremony on December 15th  in New York. Final winners will be announced at this event after a team of developers, industry professionals and press outside of the Playcrafting community have reviewed all the nominees. Here’s hoping we win!

Bouncy Smash will be available on iOS devices in Q1 2018. Feel free to check us out at www.bouncysmash.com. Thanks for your support!

      Hello,
      I recently started going into GameDev for real and I made simple game for iOS platform. It is written in Swift and uses SpriteKit framework. Please give me some feedback about my game because i don't know if I have any potential for making games. I don't want make mobile games but it is some sort of warm up.
      Link for game in App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/colorize-quick/id1167120774?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,

      I have limited programming experience in C++, but have always had a passion for games.  Where do I start?  I have a rough idea of the type of game I want to develop and am ready to commit the time necessary to learn new languages.  Are mobile games too difficult to begin with? Should I begin learning the basics of keyboard controls before attempting touch screens?  I would appreciate any input or advice!
      Thanks!

      Hi I am having this problem where I am drawing 4000 squares on screen, using VBO's and IBO's but the framerate on my Huawei P9 is only 24 FPS. Considering it has 8-core CPU and a pretty powerful GPU, I don't think it is not capable of drawing 4000 textured squares at 60FPS.
      I checked the DMMS and found out that most of the time spent was by the put() method of the FloatBuffer, but the strange thing is that if I'm drawing these squares outside of the view frustum, the FPS increases. And I'm not using frustum culling. 
      If you have any ideas what could be causing this, please share them with me. Thank you in advance.

      Hi, so I am trying to implement packed VBO's with indexing on OpenGL but I have run across problems. It worked fine when I had separate buffers for vertex positions, colors and texture coordinates. But when I tried to put everything into a single packed buffer, it completely glitched out. Here's the code which I am using:
      this.vertexData.position(0); this.indexData.position(0); int stride = (3 + 4 + 2) * 4; GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[0]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexData.capacity()*4, vertexData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); ShaderAttributes attributes = graphicsSystem.getShader().getAttributes(); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(positionAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(positionAttrID, dimensions, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, stride, 0); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(colorAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(colorAttrID, 4, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, stride, dimensions * 4); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(texCoordAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(texCoordAttrID, 2, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, stride, (dimensions + 4) * 4); GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[3]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indexData.capacity()*2, indexData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); GLES20.glDrawElements(mode, count, GLES20.GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, 0); The data in vertex buffer is ordered like this:
      Vertex X, vertex Y, vertex Z, Color r, color g, color b, color a, Tex coord x, tex coord z and so on... (And I am pretty certain that the buffer I'm using is in this order)
      This is the version of the code which worked fine:
      this.vertexData.position(0); this.vertexColorData.position(0); this.vertexTexCoordData.position(0); this.indexData.position(0); GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[0]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexPositionData.capacity()*4, vertexPositionData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); ShaderAttributes attributes = graphicsSystem.getShader().getAttributes(); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(positionAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(positionAttrID, 4, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, 0, 0); GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[1]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexColorData.capacity()*4, vertexColorData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(colorAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(colorAttrID, 4, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, 0, 0); GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[2]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexTexCoordData.capacity()*4, vertexTexCoordData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); GLES20.glEnableVertexAttribArray(textCoordAttrID); GLES20.glVertexAttribPointer(textCoordAttrID, 4, GLES20.GL_FLOAT, false, 0, 0); */ GLES20.glBindBuffer(GLES20.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, buffers[3]); GLES20.glBufferData(GLES20.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indexData.capacity()*2, indexData, GLES20.GL_STATIC_DRAW); GLES20.glDrawElements(mode, count, GLES20.GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, 0); This is the output of the non working code:

      From this picture I can see that some of the vertex positions are good, but for some reason every renderable object from the game has a at least one vertex position of value 0
      Thank in advance,
      Ed
