My First Game, Snake

hi, so i found this amazing 2D game engin, and fell in love. saw a video on a beautiful snake game viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2841&hilit=snayke cant wait for it to come out

but it inspired me, to make my own for my first project.
its an unlimited style game, no maps, it only speeds up.
so here it is, it took about a week for the first version.

when you play it, press "" to show the debug info, if you would please tell me your FPS its a bit heavy, that's why its difficulty is so hard.
screenshots are kinda blurry, sorry they are hosted on my G+

the snake is drawn with

Code: Select all

love.graphics.rectangle
, but the glow is an image.
the food block is an image as well, makes it a lot easier to rotate.
and to make the glow so pretty, im using

Code: Select all

love.graphics.setBlendMode("additive")`
try it out! have fun! and let me know what you think!
btw this my first post..

1.1
• added level status (every 10 food you would "level up", now you know what level you are)
• tweaked how snake and food is drawn
• prevented food from spawning on outer wall
• turned off v-sync so people can tell me their FPS

I really like the font & tile style. The gameplay is pretty standard to Snake, but great job on the graphics. I get 60 fps, so I'm assuming you are using some kind of FPS lock or v-sync.

Great job.

Re: My First Game, Snake

The game has had some unofficial releases, and you just did a pretty good recreation of it. Nice job!

Can you make the snake's movement a little smoother?

i think it has to do with the graphic drivers/card. mine stays around 400 fps for the first 5 or so levels, then it slowly drops. I've tested it on a handful on machines and some of them have been locked at 60fps. altho i do have v-sync on, so that mite be why. but like i said this is my first game, and i like to go all out, it took about a week of programming. i didnt know anything about Lua, cuz i normally program in c#.

thanks guys, im really glad ya'll are liking it
and btw, im not trying to "recreation" it per-say, i really used it as inspiration. i know it looks very similar, so im not taking credit for the design or anything lol.
we can call it more of a clone i guess, but its not going to be to the same extent (levels, multi-player, networking; i think, etc) just wanting it to be a unlimited style play

hm, i did notice in their game that it smoothly moved from block to block, but i don't know where to start with that, but i will see.

Re: My First Game, Snake

I'm getting > 360fps on my lesser gpu. This is pretty slick for a first project, keep it up.
Do you recognise when the world won't stop for you? Or when the days don't care what you've got to do? When the weight's too tough to lift up, what do you? Don't let them choose for you, that's on you.
