Re: Need Critique on Tutorial Series on Making Arkanoid-type Game.

I've finished the remaining parts of the tutorial: credits screen and packaging . http://i.imgur.com/kRt7M5J.png?1 All in all I don't like how the Chapter 3 has turned out.

Re: Need Critique on Tutorial Series on Making Arkanoid-type Game.

Regarding the GUI buttons, I think it's really helpful having a GUI container, something like: Ok. I've got the idea. IMO as long as there aren't many GUI elements, up to 5 - 7, it is possible to go without containers. On the other hand, in the part 3-16 on Final screen and Credits I have a code li...

Re: Need Critique on Tutorial Series on Making Arkanoid-type Game.

I think, I have an idea for another appendix: "How to continue working on a project if you are starting to lose interest".

Re: Need Critique on Tutorial Series on Making Arkanoid-type Game.

Haven't been posting progress updates in a while. Unfortunately, that's because there hasn't been much progress :( . Recently I've updated another part in the wiki; it's about bonuses that add multiple balls into the game. http://i.imgur.com/XizvqXY.png?1 The first appendix has been included. It is ...
