A small young children game for learning to spell and read.
want to update with more and more animals (ideally consume all possible sprites).

P#69082 2019-10-19 23:22 ( Edited 2019-10-26 12:52)

Good but add auto to UP and DOWN arrow keys. Don't want to push 20+ times to get to right letter.

If you need help lemme know.

Baby steps, I will implement that. I was going to do that today, but instead i ended up drawing more animals.

P#69084 2019-10-19 23:49

Interface more than artwork, at least to start. :)
You just need 26-animals, right ?

P#69085 2019-10-19 23:54

The size of animal sprites is not hard coded. So I can add more than 26 animals as long as they are all cute and clear.

I can also make another version with other themes.

Edit: Animals use between 2 by 3 and 4 by 4 sprites, it is unlikely that I'll be able to add more than 15 or so sprites for different animals.

Sliding and accelerating letters, no need to press the up key 20 times.

Now more animals. Including pigs, owls, penguins.

Animals instead of animal. Instead of one static picture there are now multiple animals that roam around.

Next, I want to add nicer backgrounds.

Added a simple background, instead of black we now have a pretty..ish field.

P#69148 2019-10-21 23:53

Better backgrounds. Now animals can have their own background.

Better word array management.

Now that you're making updates to this cart again, may I suggest if you just TAP the up or down arrow keys, it will automatically go to that next letter.

Currently if you tap the pointer moves but then jerks back down to the same letter you were already on.

Also add LEFT to move UP and RIGHT to move down in addition to regular UP and DOWN arrow keys.

More animals.

[I do not mean to abuse this thread, but I find it the best versioning control my lazy self can muster]

P#69182 2019-10-22 23:21

Small tweaks to the letters behavior.

I think I am all done with "word quiz animals". Now adapting it to "word quiz shapes", a more advanced version that can take both sprites and drawing function instead of only sprites.

By commission of @dw817 I have added a 4X4 sprite for unicorn

Really cute, thanks. Star for you. Will show it to her. :)

I'm not up on the lore. Do unicorns have wings or pegasus ?
