Re: Jetboard Joust - Skateboard Joust Sequel

Another case of #gamedev pottering here as I started work on one thing and got pretty much distracted with another. It was a constructive distraction though and has provided me with plenty of re-useable code so I’m not beating myself up about it. I started work on the animation for falling off the J...

Re: Jetboard Joust - Skateboard Joust Sequel

When I code I have a tendency to ‘potter’ – that is, I’ll start off with the aim of doing something and end up getting distracted by various side-tasks along the way. Much as one might do when gardening! So in this case I started off trying to get my first simple enemy done and ended up getting side...

Re: Jetboard Joust - Skateboard Joust Sequel

Another 1.5 days or so in and, surprise surprise, things aren’t going as quickly as I would like. This is mainly due to the art though which always takes me ages. There won’t really be that many main character animations in the game I guess so I might as well make the one’s that are there as good as...

Re: Zx Spectrum

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIcTTPML1Fk Underwurlde was always one of my speccy favourites. I don't know why but something about it appealed more than any of the other Ultimate games. I think it was partly the enormity of the world and partly the game mechanic whereby the enemies didn't actually...

Jetboard Joust - Defender-Inspired Cute Retro SHMUP - Alpha Now Available For MacOS and Windows

Jetboard Joust is a visually striking future-retro shooter in which you use a vast array of ridiculous weaponry to stop hordes of aliens from abducting your precious babies and turning them into mutants. And it's kind of a very belated sequel to a (frankly pretty terrible) game I released on the ZX ...
