Ascii Breakout
« on: November 18, 2017, 02:58:00 pm »
DISCLAIMER:
Although I cannot and will not enter this into the contest, I will still be making a UCC3-style entry. This time around, the contest seems really fun. If you want to create Breakout for your entry, feel free to do so. It will probably be better than mine.
  :thumbsup:

I will be creating an Atari Breakout clone, in grayscale, using the full char palette, uhh, I provided.

I will try to make it multiplayer in a time based fashion, where Player 1 does a playthrough, and Player 2 has to beat his/her time. (I might be able to get them to play simultaneously, it depends.)

I did some work and got the drawing of numbers working.



Here's the 'font' I'm using, if anyone is interested. (Project resources shouldn't count as code, IMHO):

Feedback is appreciated :)

Update:

Ball movement works, paddle movement works, bouncing off of surfaces works, and all kinds of other cool stuff! (vid coming when I can get it to reliably not crash)

It runs at ~15fps, but you don't notice it. It is extremely smooth.  (due to some magic :) )

To be honest, I am too.

I have no clue how I am going to implement (in no order):
1) Powerups
2) Levels omfg
3) Brick-breaking
4) Brick-drawing
5?) Multiplayer?

To-do list (in no order):
