Mouse Mania

Post by Kingdaro » Wed Dec 08, 2010 4:49 am

Mouse Mania is a rhythm game where you move the mouse in the direction of the direction of the corresponding arrow in the circle to the right. Here's a demo. I'd like to know of any future features you guys might like to see.

I'm with Mud, music and sound fx are a must. Also, you probably want to keep players from just drawing circles with their mice- as is, it's pretty easy to get every note just by orbiting a random point on the screen.

Also a conf.lua file. I don't know why, but "Untitled" windows grate against my brain... it's such a simple file that adds so much to the polish of your game.

Should I reduce allowed mouse speed?

...Not sure what to say to that. I've never used a conf.lua file before.

You should add some kind of punishment for moving in the wrong direction. Combo breaker?

Sorry about that, I should have explained. conf.lua configures your game, with fun stuff like window title, window size, whether or not to attach a console: extremely useful stuff, see the link that thelinx provided. All you need to do is make a conf.lua file and put it in your game directory. (With the right lua cde inside, that is.)
