@Unknownloner aah seems cool so far. I liked System Crash by Scipi. 


@Scipi I like the new tiles, did you make them?

Scipi

Yes. For the compo, you must make all code and assets during the competition. The only exception is a logo/splash screen and personal code you share with the community beforehand. :P

I like the tiles, but I need to rework some of them. The sand texture is dreadful, so I'll be repalleting the hills to be sand dunes. The grass is also a bit too noisy, while hills look like plastic. Mountains also need to lose the checkerboard pattern and be a bit more crowded. And I plan on switching around some of the water tiles (some shallow tiles look more like deep water, and vice versa)

Going to sleep but you can mess around with what I have at
http://z80.ukl.me/ludum31/ludum31.html
WASD/Arrow keys = move
Space / Left click = shoot
Shift / Right click = laser, but it doesnt do damage yet it just looks neat.
If you turn completely red you're dead, but no lose state yet. Shoot magenta (temporary graphic) glowy red things, don't die :)

Tomorrow hopefully I can add some sort of goals and variation to the gameplay, make it better as an actual game.

DJ Omnimaga

Oh I like it so far, especially how enemies blink when you shoot them. It's pretty hard though O.O

Streetwalrus

Hmmm... Vimperator hates js stuff. :P

Scipi

I love the style you went for there. Like DJ mentioned, it reminds me a lot of my System Crash game. :P




unknownloner

*Sigh*
Stuff like this is why I never finish ludum dares

I got sidetracked repurposing it to make a parody video with that song
(Thats not part of the final gameplay)

DJ Omnimaga

Oh right. Sometimes that happens when I code something and then get sidetracked experimenting and doing all sort of weird effects.

pimathbrainiac

Well, I'm bach here too!

Scipi

Got my entry ready and sent in. You guys can try it out here:

^_^

Balancing it nonexistant, atm. I'll get that done tomorrow at some point. Here's what the final product looks like:



Hint: Notice the flavor text on the side panel.




DJ Omnimaga

Seeing this screenshot, the first thing I checked afterward was if the screenshot with CodeWalrus site in the background was leaked publicly O.O

That said it was mostly hidden so people would probably have no clue what it is. :P

Anyway it's looking better and better, although the contrast between tiles is quite high so it might be hard to distinguish character sprites sometimes.

Scipi

The public screenshots are all cropped to just the game window. So no leaks. :P

I meant to redo the grass and mountain tiles, but I ran out of time. I plan on continuing the project, though, so it'll get an overhaul.




DJ Omnimaga

Oh wait it's already finished? D: Darn I don't realize how some of those contests have short deadlines sometimes.

ANyway if you get this further you could eventually create a separate topic and maybe if it's a long game it could get a sub-forum. :) (yes, computer projects can get sub-forums too)
