Even though it just turned noon as I started writing this post, I've already made some pretty awesome improvements.
We are switching from fish to snails, for three main reasons:
- TheLastMillennial tried his best to make me a piranha sprite, but the result didn't, uhh, look al dente yes, I know I am using that term wrong, that's the point. (I couldn't make one better... I guess this might have been a bit much x.x)
- I decided that I am decent at drawing snails (despite never drawing a pixel art snail in my life) and created the sprite below.
- It's funnier that way
It's not too bad (I don't think), but I do want to do some shading on the shell, and make the overall sprite larger.
Here it is in-game (the black dots at the top are debug things, don't worry)
I also added the score multiplier and difficulty increase, it gets gradually faster as you play. In order to make the game not insanely fast too quickly, you start rather slow. (I might change some of my formulae so that this doesn't have to happen)
I'm super excited about releasing this. I think I'll work on my font today, I'm thinking about making a slimey font, as if it was traced by the path of a snail
