I'd like to get this back on topic, but had to mention:

No thanks. My lives idea was more if you wanted to add challenge to the game. I doubt he wants to make a Flappy Bird... er Mario Portal crossover. :P
This exists: http://stabyourself.net/mari0 and it's really awesome



DJ Omnimaga

Yeah I know about that game. I was more talking about a calculator version. :P (in case somebody ever wanted to make a Mario-themed Portal clone for the Nspire or CSE)

I made a signature thingy for this and PortalCSE. What do you think about them?

Edit.
Here's some experiments:

Looking good! I would probably have to change it eventually to fit the finalized art style of the game.
Also, I have a lot of time to work on this today, so expect progress!



CKH4

Yeah, I used the sprites that I had made and your cake. Which one do you like more, the current one or the experimental one?

Also good luck on progress.


DJ Omnimaga

Look very nice CKH4! Also I can't wait LDStudios :D

I fixed a few more bugs, changed around the physics a bit, and added some sprites:

I think I prefer the style of the second one, here's one that I think fits the game theme a little better:

This is getting better and better LD. How large is the game so far, by the way?

Right now its 9KB, I expect the finished game to be something like 18. (Level storage and a bigger title images will increase it quite a bit).



DJ Omnimaga

Awesome. Since it's color I often fear using many sprites because of possible massive size increase. I don't mind it, though.

Sizes for lua files are generally small compared to the nspires space, unless you have tons of images that are the size of the full screen.

Also, I added buttons:

On the 84+CSE, a sprite sheet of 128 tiles that are 8x8 is 8192 pixels large, so if you have 1024 tiles it adds up fast. On the HP Prime it's even larger. Glad that at least on the Nspire it isn't too bad.


Also nice addition :D


DJ Omnimaga

Awesome! I can't wait to try it on a real calc ^.^

I'll probably upload a beta soon!

Also, I made a gif version (but it's a bit laggy and doesn't include the full video)


EDIT: Added cubes, energy balls and toggle switches! This is finally progressing!
