LINK UPDATED: 01/12/13
(made 1 new level, made some improvement, modified level selection menu)
Hi all, my name's Raffaele, I'm from Italy.
I begin this game just for fun, following the tutorial Building a platform game.
After some times and implementation, I decided to create a nice character and make my own graphics. With the help of some free software and the internet (because I like to draw but I'm not an artist), these are the results. It's my first game in Costruct2 but I think I made a decent work.
I lost my mind to implement the offline and online record, because array and sql was not so easy to understand for a noob like me. But they work fine now, after few tests and tries. Fortunately there are a lot of examples and tutorials in the Scirra website, with a lot of qualified people that share their knowledge: THANX! <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle">
By the way, I create a puzzle platform, also for kids (I have one 4 years child who want to play my game all the evening! He's my best betatester, eheh!).
The things I have to change now are: the music (made with some loopy program) and some soundfx (like when Maialino "Piggy" land on the floor...).
I have to fix the "music off" button, it won't work well... damn! ;-)
Another "problem" is the font. I used a non-standard web font (Cooper black, like in the title screen) and not all the computers have that font, so they see a different font... I tried to use the font converter (in wuff), but it doesn't work (for now).
Here the link of the game (is in italian but easy to understand: "Gioca" means "Play", "Opzioni" is for the keys, and Credits... u know!):
Maialino libera tutti - The game
I also made a website, in italian language for now, because I'm not able to write decently in english (I mean without grammatical errors).
Here the link if u like to see:
Maialino libera tutti - The website
The name of the game is "Maialino libera tutti" that means "Piggy free 'em all" (the chickens).
My goal, is to distribute it for free with some paid advertising inside (I put the Scirra logo for free, <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle"> ). If I can get some money in adverts, I can continue to make levels and spend some other time to make it for smartphones and tablets. I already implemented the touch part and it works fine with CocoonJS (about 60fps on iPad2 and 30fps on iPhone4). But it should be implemented better because it crash randomly... and I'm not so skilled to resolve the issue... <img src="smileys/smiley11.gif" border="0" align="middle">
I just begin to advertise my game through some italian site, but I would like to distribute also on Vuf (the planet of the Maialino's enemy, eheh). Maybe if there's someone skilled in this, let me know.
Keys: left and right arrow, up arrow for jump, Z to zoom out and see the discs (spin).
Objectives: free the chicken (find the key, bring the balloon). To increase point, get all the 3 discs and find the secret (that is in a secret and hidden place).
Good luck with the first 4 levels!
And let me know what do u think guys. But don't be too hard... <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle">
PS: the lever in the game... is for move big wooden materials... I put the description on the website, but it's in italian!
EDIT: added some pic of the previous version...
