Re: Mole Hunter <aka Game>

It took me a while to figure out that I wasn't supposed to click with the pointy bit. Fun though!

Small bug: when I got > 1000 points, the score stopped displaying until the game was over.

Re: RoboLOVE

I represented the player with a rectangular physical body, and applied forces to it according to the player's on-screen position relative to the mouse. I let the physics engine sort out collisions for me. It doesn't work very well though, because the player gets stuck on everything for some reason :...

RoboLOVE

Hi!
My first LOVE project! Based on the tile-based scrolling tutorial.
Feel free to try it out. I want to learn about the particle system soon, and make this little guy shoot out rainbow death rays. I grabbed the music from binaerpilot.no.

Press F5, and enter exactly this: c:\Progra~1\LOVE\love.exe "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)" ... assuming you've installed LOVE to the default directo...
