Floppy Box

Post by AngusWP » Thu Oct 10, 2019 1:07 pm

Floppy Box is a game I have thrown together. It's nothing special, but for me it is a benchmark of where I am and I want to make more advanced games so hopefully in a year or two I can look back at this and see how far I have come.

You have to try and bounce off the mustard coloured safe zone to increase your score.

Let me know if there are any bugs.

Hi, well done on the game, I liked it!

I can see the parallels with flappy bird etc. in terms of game mechanic, but I've not seen this exact representation before... it was quite fun!

A couple of suggestions:
- I think the difficulty could scale more slowly? Longer target zones earlier on would be appreciated.
- Why a box? (I would have thought a ball would feel more natural, especially in terms of collision.)

My top score was 9.

It is fun to play and has a nice minimal design. Sometimes the next target is almost impossible to reach; you have to go from the bottom to the top but cannot go steeper than a 45 degree angle. But on the other hand it makes for short challenging games. Top score 10. :P

This game is unfair because the wall spawns at random point so it's possible that you may not fall and collide it if the wall is lower than the player.

Pretty addictive! My best score at this point is 7 hits. I love the simple concept.
