TRON - a mini tron-like game (for 2 players) with AI

Post by SuperZazu » Wed Aug 13, 2014 1:13 pm

Hello fellow lovers ^^

to train myself I tried to make a little game in less than 6 hours. Here is the result (.love) EDIT: NEW VERSION

Controls:
• Player 1 = up, down, left, right
• Player 2 = z, s, q, d
(press enter or space to start a game, and you can change from 'AI' to 'HUMAN' with arrow keys)

What do you think ?
I have a little problem programming the AI (this is my first time programming AI) : the AI is just reaaaally dumb. Does anyone have some advice, maybe some links on the subject ? (I tried some research, didn't find something really useful :/ )

(ps: the music's not mine, I found it here)

It will be a fun game,but the Light-cycle is too fast... and it maybe subjective on my part, but I'm more used to Gameboy Action's Serpent War controls (left and right only). Also, the music doesn't loop.

You really gave me nostalgia about Serpent War, and am suggesting you take that route instead of Tron. :3

Thanks for the answer!
I might want to make two modes ingame, yeah: like "Serpent mode" and "TRON mode". I'm thinking about it!
Anyway, you were right, the light cycles were way too fast (wonder why I didn't realise this earlier).
So here's an updated version of the game, with some bug fixes.
