Re: New year ...

I plan to finish my vector robot game sooooon. Just because I don't want to leave it undone, not because I like it. Next I'm hoping to do a game I'll actually get into, current plan is a procgen-cave-platformer-metrodvania thing, so that will be most of 2018. Non-coding wise I'd like to try and writ...

Re: New ZX Spectrum game: SQIJ 2018

Fabulous stuff. I love that you've done this. I sometimes think of digging out the Z80 book and go back 30+ years to simpler times instead of all this OpenGL stuff. Give me a good old memory mapped screen any time.

Re: Games I Played 2017 Edition

Bought myself SteamWorld Dig 2 for the kid's Switch. Loved the first and this is just as good. Also bought Dead Cells for the PC, could be great, but the grind and boss difficulty are too high (maybe once it's out of EA, but I won't hold my breath. So many games that I would play to death are spoile...

Re: Mini Competition #3 .... D ....ish

Well I've done nothing except lie on the sofa. Currently waiting on the hospital phoning with a bed which beats the usual of having to sit in A&E for a few hours. So yeah, looks like this ones a bust.

Re: Mini Competition #3 .... D ....ish

Had another trip to my 2nd home (the hosptial). Still not 100% can't face any coding just now. On the plus side I've had a time to sit and play BOTW with my kid which has been absolutely amazing. So anyway, we'll see what happens.

Re: Mini Competition #3 .... D ....ish

Well got my basic idea working, but I'm feeling disillusioned. Maybe once add all the trippy effects I'll get into it. I think it's because I've spent about 8 hours filipping signs from +ve to -ve to get display at least doing what it's supposed to. Each time I changed one thing I broken other. Serv...

Re: Mini Competition #3 .... D ....ish

That looks brilliant. Nice idea for the slopes. I'd probably of done some hacky maths that I'd spend a day randomly changing until it worked.
