Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Thanks! Should be easier to understand when you get a chance to play it. I'll release a version sometime this week. Here's the guide page in the meantime: guide.png Left to do: - add a way to refuel - add a way to repair - add a way to cash in the ore you collect - make ore spawning probability base...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Went away for a long weekend. Back to work today, so back on this. Added in Fuel and Fuel Consumption. There's currently no way to refuel. Roughed in Ore spawning and collecting. I still need to work in probability stuff - right now all asteroids spawn ore when they are destroyed. My aim is to have ...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Enjoy Spain! We have no deadline on this one. I've added collision so you can bounce off the asteroids, and bullets so you can shoot them. I guess I need particle effects to make asteroid destruction less boring. I've also improved the star and asteroid spawning. I think I've mostly eliminated poppi...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Thank you. It's probably fair say any videogame making requires a certain amount of cleverness. Probably the most clever thing I am doing with Pico-8 here is swapping between 2 checkerboard fills (black and "transparent") every frame for fake alpha transparency on my HUD background. Currently fancyi...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

That's crazy! You're crazy. Must have been a good code-high when it finally rendered the way you wanted.

I'm just writing LUA-like scripts and issuing a few limited draw commands.

I'm glad you're still going, though. It was getting lonely in here!

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Ta! One thing I've been loving is the latest Pico-8 version has a 4x4 2 colour fill pattern set by a bitfield. I'm currently just chucking in random numbers, but some of the repeating patterns that have been produced have really been surprisingly beautiful.
