A brand new game
for Windows, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew, iPhone, Android TV and more,
19th August, 2008
Wednesday Workshop #164 suggested we should make a game using vector graphics. I took this opportunity to remake the fantastic Dos game, Boogaloopers!
Move the ship around with your mouse, and trap enemy within it's trail. Nice and simple gameplay-wise, but a complete git to get working code-wise! Not only did I have to figure out the points that the mouse crossed the trail, but then do that whole polygon-shrinking thing, too!
Not easy! And I even accidentally left a little gap at the opening point! (oops!)
Still, that's only a graphical issue, and the game works exactly as expected.
There are 4 enemies of varying speeds, but I've not added pickups, or weapons, or anything like that.
If you'd like to see more added, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.
In the meantime, you can Download Space Loops, and have a bit of fun!
