Green's Collection - Step 1
20th November, 2007
And so it begins, the long boring task of making lots and lots of games
I lie. It's not boring!
Centipede took shape, gradually, over the course of a day. Most of the tweaking was in the main engine, as opposed to the game itself, since I had to be sure of all my different variables, and how all the pieces of the menu system would fit together.
Now that the main code is mostly sorted I should be able to get things done at a much faster pace. The actual menu design hasn't yet been decided upon, and to be honest I'm even starting to wonder if it'll even be a "Greenie" collection. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
In the meantime I threw in a small second, slightly related game. Snake.
You know the drill. Run from side to the other, grab all the blobs, and try not to kill yourself.
It's a bit slow. But then, every Snake game is. So it was whilst creating this game that I decided to add Difficulty levels into the mix. I'm not sure where the level will be chosen, but all the games in the pack should use a standard "Easy, Normal, Hard" setting in the main menu, somewhere.
Set it to Hard, and Snake becomes a much more enjoyable game.
More games to come, and suggestions for gameplay mechanics, or additional games are welcome.
