Ludum Dare 26 started 11 hours ago and I’ve never been more troubled by the chosen theme.
Seriously, who comes up with this theme? It’s not even a real theme. Anyone even remotely interested in LD knows every game in LD is an sich minimalistic. But I’m not going to rant here. (yet)
What my game is about
I’m doing an autoscroller game. The player automatically moves forward and has to make it to the end alive. He can move to the left or the right and attack. Every x amount of kills the player has done, he can use a more powerful attack.
The game is called Brave Warrior and is multiplatform on PC and Android. The UI is very simple and minimalistic (grrrr):
- touch left or right to go that direction (PC is click and hold)
- swipe up to attack (PC is space)
What I’ve done so far
Aside from waiting for the elevator repair service, I’ve done player movement. Awesome right? Well, I only need to make it so that the speed of movement is relative to the position of your finger/mouse. The further it is, the faster the character will go that way.
Screenshots and download links
Do note that although the Android App asks for your Phone status, I did not implement this anywhere, nor do I retrieve anything from your phone. I can’t check this at the moment, but that should be fixed.
