    Each level will have a take off platform and a landing platform.

    Objective is to get from point A to point B as fast as possible.

    The scoring is based on power usage and time. shield damage uses power. Run out of power your dead.

    Here are some comments:

    • The thruster sound doesn't play for me on right thrust action, only left and bottom.
    • Testing on a Retina Mac. Rocks are sharp, the rest slightly pixellated, including HUD (iron pillars look the worst in that regard). Nowadays, Retina Macs are a big segment of the Mac customer base, so it might be something to keep in mind. If you create your graphics as vectors, this should be an easy fix.
    • If you fly out off the top of the screen, the ship disappears and the game is 'stuck.'
    • It would be nice to add a little bounce on (especially side) collisions. Currently it just 'sticks' to the obstacle and looks slightly strange.

    I'm aware of all the things that you just called off I've got fixes for those coming. some of my PNG files are x2 some are not. im still playing with friction and bounce.

    This will be the only level where you can fly off the screen. Rest is underground or in buildings. I'm gonna have a " don't be a coward" thing Pop up if you fly off screen on the first level.

    -All graphics now are x2
    -Sound files working
    -Fuel Capacity gauge for keeping score. ( still working on final score method)
    -Elevator takes ship off screen and resets scene and fuel. (representing end of level and on to next level)
    -Bounciness added to ship hitting walls and ground. less friction.

    Try it out tell me what ya think.

    98.6 is my best score so far.

    Nice, much better. The one other place that you can 'fly out' and get stuck is actually up the elevator shaft. Maybe that could also lead to a win (though you would definitely use more fuel that way).

    Try harder. :sunglasses:

  • FINNBOGGFINNBOGG Posts: 1,809Member

    Yeah I learned the glitch. I've changed the timer while pressed. You don't score that again. On the next release.

  • pHghostpHghost London, UKPosts: 2,301Member

    Oh, is it a glitch?

    Bummer, I thought I did really well...

  • FINNBOGGFINNBOGG Posts: 1,809Member

    There is going to be a fuel usage factor and a timing factor as a multiplier. Better the time the better the multiplier. So you have to contend with both aspects.
