NeonPlat Stats So Far

Throwables : 3 (still the same 3!?)
Objects : 8
Baddies : 9
Bosses : 1
Background styles : 1.5! (first complete, 2nd half done but needs tweaked so everything isn't dodgy looking blue squares!)
Level types : 3'ish (depending on how I tweak the numbers)
Music : 2'ish (2 very similar tunes, and a separate "Boss Time" tune.)

Had another Migraine day, today, and thus managed to accomplish bog all.

'tis a bit of a downpoint, considering how productive I've been over the past couple of weeks, but I pretty much ended up reading forums, messing about on Twitter, and.. .. Relaxing a bit.
Because, apparently that's important, even when you're kicking ass making a really great platformer. Go figure!

Apologies for the lack of daily blog/rant lately. Work schedule is crazy, sleep schedule is crazy, and AGameAWeek schedule is also all messed up.
..

Well... I say that..

A quick and simple Boulderdash clone, written using PlayMyCode.com

PlayMyCode games no longer work


Reason : I asked for PMC-Based Boulderdash clones in this week's Socoder Newsletter, so figured I'd best do one, just incase nobody else did..
If you make one, let me know!

Over a year and a half ago, I made a Music Framework thing to go in my BlitzMax framework.
It achieved a fairly modest passable amount of music, and was used in both JNKPlat2010 and NeonPlat2.
I stick in a few melodies, it goes twiddle-dee-dee, and out pops a bunch of pseudo random music.
yeay!

The Demo, already!!!?

This is nice and playable, so I thought I'd spout out a nice demo for everyone.

Another day, and still lots of back-n-forth on NeonPlat decisions.
There's a lot of gameplay emerging, and it'll be fun trying to pull it all off.
Even without a working editor, and still having everything be pseudo random, things are playable, enemy are spawning, and NeonPlat keeps enjoying himself!

Much as I expected, the initial burst of NeonPlat Adventure building, has now dropped to a stupidly slow rate.
I'm currently flicking through all the possibilities for standard baddies, and super-evil-mega-boss baddies.
Will the boss baddies be entirely seperate entities?
Or will they, like previous NeonPlat games, be the same baddies, but megasized!?

And what enemy types will work!?
I've already cut out the unpopular "squishy" baddy.
People didn't like him, because he wasn't catchable in spheres. Silly moaning people
So, he's gone. All* enemy (*cough*) will be catchable.
I've added 2 new enemies so far.
1 is a little wandering guy, made to test the "turn around at the end of a floor!" function. .. that works!
2 is a spike.

The spike was originally going to be a bog-standard floor tile, but in NeonWorld, with lots of NeonBlur, the spike inexplicably looked like a mushroom!!!!

Given the platformy style of the game, I kept wanting to eat the mushrooms, so .. obviously, that had to go!
Instead, the spike is now looking more like the Sheep Goes Left one, and is a nice big rotating splodge with spikes, spinning around and around in a stationary position.
... But you can't catch it in a sphere!


Backgrounds for worlds 1 and 2 are half done, in that I've kinda figured out how the tiles will be laid out, but haven't yet done all the different tiles, nor have I decided on all the possible variations. Lots to be done!

As for the editor.
hmm..

I'm still playing the game without edited levels.
It's fun!
It's kinda messy, though, when giant walls block your path, and you have to wait out the scrolling enough that the wall kills you.
That's the current pseudo-random issue, and kinda the reason I want to build the editor.

It's odd, though, how much I'm already learning the paths of the random levels.
...

With that in mind, I'm starting to consider the possibility of a half/half editor. Something that starts with a random level, then lets you tweak it until it's just right.
That could work, right?!

I've been mulling over this post for a few days, now, but the guy at work mentioned them being super cheap, and I found myself in a more pressed position.
Would I, or wouldn't I?

Sheep Goes Left now has two versions of it's soundtrack!
Yeay!

Disc One : The iOS Soundtrack : 20 tracks, plus the opening jingle!

Disc Two : The DS Homebrew Soundtrack : 20 tracks, all rearranged into little mods, then oddly upscaled back to MP3s to be playable at www.archive.org!.

I'll be posting the mod files in a few days, once the latest game release is finished..

Sheepy'll see you soon!

Something's been annoying me, lately.
I've known what it is, but no matter how I wrangle the numbers in my head, it just doesn't seem to work out.

So, apologies to all, but I'm going to have that well earned rest, whether my schedule accepts it or not..

I had planned a post, earlier.
I was thinking the text through whilst walking to work..
I'm now home from work, and have sat down to write it.

.. I need to learn to jot things down, because I can't remember what it was..
