    What are your thoughts on Quantum Blast?

  • Dev Video 4 Uploaded (With Speech)

    Game version 1.05

    Turret added

  • Interesting idea.

    The SplitScreen is made with the Canvas Plugin ?

    Keep up the good work

  • TGeorgeMihai

    Thanx!

    In this case its ROJOhounds Paster plugin.

    But thats the little brother of the canvas plugin.

  • I also work at a small game that uses SplitScreen and at the moment I am using ROJOhound's Canvas Plugin. But from what I understand, Paster should be faster with WebGL (even trough the Canvas have more options then Paster)... How did you manage to copy/paste parts of Layout using Paster (since it doesn't have the option to "Paste Layer") ?

  • TGeorgeMihai

    This is how i did it.

    I learned it from a example somewhere on the forum

    The order in which u paste is the "new" Z order.

    So the normal z order in C2 does not apply anymore when pasting.

    The best thing about the paster is that u can utilize all webgl effects.

    Please let me know when u post your game on the forum.

  • Thank you very much Basically you copy each sprite separately into the Paster object.

    The same method (events) I was using in Canvas, but instead of pasting each sprite separately, I used the event "Paste Layer into canvas" (currently available only in Canvas).

    I will notice you when I'll complete my game (or at least the first version)

    I know that you probably use placeholder sprites, but in the future, as a suggestion would be to upgrade a little the graphics

  • Thanx for the suggestion!

    As for the graphics of Quantum Blast:

    I feel what you are saying.

    However i do not intent on making this game the best pixelworthy eyecandy.

    Im just not there yet on the graphic side of game development.

    That is why in first i chose this pixelated art style.

    And appart from my choice, i realy like old looking games.

    I do however improve these pixel graphics as the game development unfolds.

    Its a fun learning process for me.

    So yes, some graphics u see are placeholders, but in general this style is what im aiming for.

    And for what people are missing graphicly, game play will balance.

    Recently i have adopted tiles from Kenney his free assets pack.

    They are goodlooking and perfect for my pixel art game.

    Tomorrow i wil be uploading my new Dev video to youtube which shows what currently can be done with the level editor of Quantum Blast.

    I hope u like what u see in that version.

    Thanx for the helpful feedback on my game!

    It drives me greater forward.

  • New Dev Video 5

    Game version V1.06

    Feedback is Great!

  • Quantum Blast has had a big game changer.

    And because of this, it no longer carries the name QB.

    80% of the original game mechanics have been removed.

    Whats left is a solid, fun, and really competitive 2 player vs game.

    When ready, the final update will be put here.
