Very much an early work in progress. Wanted to make a super small arcade game, something you might see with vector graphics and a roller ball for controls.

I haven't made games in awhile, been trying to work on larger projects, and that has been pretty daunting. But then I went to Can Can Wonderland, a very cool arcade in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. I played a bunch of super retro arcade games there, stuff like Atari Football and Anti-Aircraft. I was inspired to try to make a game like that, something with very simple controls and concepts.

Controls:
up/down/left/right - Move cursor
Z - switch cursor direction between left and right
X - turn closest plane in the direction of the cursor

This is very much a proof of concept. If I go further with this, I imagine that each color plane would have to be directed to a certain edge of the circle, and later levels would have storm areas you have to avoid, and UFOs that are worth bonus points.

A battle theme for my game

Boy, oh boy. Making video games takes a bunch of work.

I’ve decided to release my game as a serial, like a comic book.
I will need to make a couple of enemies, puzzles, sfx, throw it all in a level and move on to the next entry.

Hopefully I can bundle everything in a multi cart, or picotron cart.

edit:
removed reverb

because there can never be enough Celeste mods, just changed the colour palette a bit and put in a self insert main character

Cart #circle_collision_example-0 | 2024-03-30 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | No License

This is a simple example on how circle collision works.

All you need from this cartridge is the function:

function circ_col(c1, c2)
  local dx = c1.pos.x - c2.pos.x
  local dy = c1.pos.y - c2.pos.y
  local distance = sqrt(dx*dx + dy*dy)
  return distance <= (c1.r + c2.r)
end

If you want to check if two circles are colliding, you simply pass them as parameters c1 and c2 see an example bellow:

c1 = {
    pos={x=64,y=64},
    r = 4 --size the radius would have to be for a 8x8 sprite
}

c2 = {
    pos={x=70,y=70},
    r = 8 --size the radius would have to be for a 8x8 sprite
}

collides = false

function _update()
   collides = circ_col(c1, c2)
end

function _draw()
   cls()

   if collides then 
      print("colliding",4,4,11)
   end

   --draw the circles here - mind you in most projects you woudn't, usually you would have them invisible and have them
   --at the same position (or slightly offsetted) as your player
   --i would recommend drawing them anyway at the start to see that the are always where they are supposed to be
   circ(c1.pos.x,c2.pos.y,c1.r,11)
   circ(c2.pos.x,c2.pos.y,c2.r,8)
end

function circ_col(c1, c2)
  local dx = c1.pos.x - c2.pos.x
  local dy = c1.pos.y - c2.pos.y
  local distance = sqrt(dx*dx + dy*dy)
  return distance <= (c1.r + c2.r)
end

Wash's Game Jelly Submission - Poochie Survivors

I just finished my very first game jam where I did the coding. This is also my very first complete game!
It took me two weeks to finish.

The balancing didn't get finished so it's a little on the hard side but I'd like to follos with game dev experiment with a bug fix experiment as well.

A small little game made for fun. Originally a collaboration project with a beginner coder friend who quickly lost interest. Feel free to add critique although please understand this wasn't intended to be particularly good.

controls:
Press O (z) to jump
Press X (x) to eat

Instructions:
A timer is ticking down. Quickly choose whether you will jump over the incoming obstacles or attempt to eat them. Eating a spike will give you a "GAME OVER", but eating a fruit will increase your speed and grant you additional time to extend your streak. Go for the highest score you can before time runs out! (my record is 8100 if you want to try and beat it)

I tried making somewhat of platformer engine.
As you can see, it is very buggy. If someone could help with the weird wall collision thing then that would be great.

When I click Code below any cart on the BBS, the block is just empty and contains no code. Not sure if this is related to the recent styling change. I can't say for sure when this started, but I just noticed it today for the first time.

In case it's browser specific, I'm on Firefox 124.0.1 on Linux.

Obviously I can only speak for myself, but I have to say I don't like the site's font having been changed to be universally monospaced. I really hope this was just a CSS accident. 😕

@zep - Was this intentional?

1k Defender

1k Defender is a little shmup made with 957 compressed bytes inside PICO-8!

This project was born from a failed submission to 1k jam 2022 and continuing it for the 2023 edition. Since I didn't felt it was eligible for the jam, I never uploaded it to it. A while ago I remembered it, so I spiced it up with a label and some sfx, but only those so it is a tad more enjoyable to play. We got a gameplay loop as well!

You can also check it out the raw one on GistHub:

https://gist.github.com/Achie72/076859ce7fe17335fdb49ca7790d427b

Gameplay:

Shoot the invading forces down to protect your planet. You need to restock on bullets from time to time in the depot (the up icon on the bottom left)

Controls:

⬅️⬇️⬆️➡️ to move, ❎ to shoot

Support:

If you like this work, feel free to browse around my page and maybe check out my Ko-fi blog https://ko-fi.com/achiegamedev, where you can support me with a price of a coffee, to be able to fuel my coding habits and gain more retro games!
