Hello everyone. I'm looking for input.
I want to see if it's possible to create a game similar to this old game for Nokia phones:
I want to have clouds, birds and other things in the level though. I've been thinking that I'd make every sprite have a variable that determines its position:
x = horizontal position, relative to the frame
y = vertical position, relative to the frame
z = altitude
I was thinking it might be possible to set all objects' position and size (the further away from the player's view, the smaller the object).
Even with no scrolling involved I would have to take distance into consideration. If an object is far away it won't move so much on the x and y axis, but if it's closer it has to move a lot.
I'm stumped so does anyone have any good tips in that might help?
