加速彈丸 (Accelerating projectiles)

Post by rrTea » Sun Dec 16, 2018 9:31 am

About the game: harvest the power pellets from the enemy and… attack! You can also collect the small rockets. Should be simple enough to figure out after a few attempts (might be a bit confusing at first) (just remember to let go of the shoot button from time to time, this is not one of those games where you have to constantly keep the button pressed). There is only one enemy implemented.

Here is a short gif to give you an idea of what it looks like:

I like it! I notice that the exe is exactly 64kb so you seem to have reached the limit :). Or do you have any ideas on how to save space?

Thanks for checking it :) Yes, I did find a way how to save even more space. So here is a new build (lots of additions & fixes & optimizations)! (Attached to the first post.)

Maybe some numbers need a bit of tweaking but this should be it I think, everything is fully functional and all features are in place. Unless I hear about some major problems here I'll try to make a site for the project (and update this thread with the links) when I get a chance.

If you see a feature you really like, chances are I copied it from Kjell :) ( if it's something silly that was probably written by me :) ) As for the game itself, I guess it will be a bit confusing on the first few tries but I hope that ultimately everybody who plays it will have an unexpected feeling (hopefully a good one and not because the game crashed!).

About saving space: the "Find unused components" option in Tools menu can help sometimes.

It's very useful, I regularly use it.

Currently the project is at the point where if I try to add even an empty ZExpression it'll go over 64k – no doubt there are still things that can be further optimized but that's it for now.

Here is a video of the thing in action: https://streamable.com/vexph

Thanks! I decided to move the project to a new page.

Links in the first post! Jump ^
I'd be super happy to hear if anybody has any comments / ideas / crash reports.

So the plan is to keep splitting the big game into smaller mini-games and release them separately? It looks like a nice idea.

I see now that you posted a Hu Die update too on patreon and I tried it, the tutorial is very polished and a very good addition! I miss the cutscenes though are they not included at this point?

Something like that, basically these "offshoots" are indeed often derived from / based on parts of a bigger project but with significant modifications. I can also use smaller projects to experiment with various ZGE features and how they work in context, for example the background effect in this game was such a thing.

Yes I updated Hu Die too (and my signature, I completely forgot I had some old links in there) and added the tutorial / took out the cutscenes. The tutorial is a bit unedited, did you find it long winded? Cutscenes are not implemented because bitmaps make things technically difficult, so I am planning to implement them last or develop them separately (none of which is ideal but I can't think of anything better). I should probably write about it in the thread (there's a whole plan behind it…).

Ok, just let me know if I can do anything to help with the technical difficulties.
