[WIP] shooting game

Post by o2n » Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:09 pm

I made a small game using LÖVE and I thought I'd share it. It has 16 different weapons and lots of enemies.

I really love this. It looks neat, is colorful, and was easy to figure out without needing any explanation text. The pixellation gives it a nice charming feel. I learned on my own about how the edges of the screen kill you instead of wrapping you by running into them and killing myself. Oops. Maybe you could have a flashing red wall come up if you get too close to the edge that acts like a neat looking proximity alarm.

Keep working on it! All it really needs is a menu and high score. Oh, and make it so we can resize the window freely and put it in maximize (So on macOS we can do desktop fullscreen mode) and add a key for the other fullscreen style. If you need help figuring out the best way, I can provide suggestions. (I notice in your conf.lua file you have the "resizable" flag set to true, but for some reason I can't do it when the game starts. So I guess it's being overridden with a false later.)

This is really good, but I feel like it could be much better with some minimal sound effects. Nice work :)

Very nice!
I would make the player a slightly different color though, to be able to differentiate better between player and shots. Especially towards the end of the animation, it gets very messy on screen...

Doesn't seem to work on android "cannot compile shader code' I'm really new at this but if you don't mind I could try to get it to work for Android it looks like it would play well
