Congratulations winners, and a big hand to everyone who completed their games
Re: Rocket Survival Machine
, I agree about the memes. Thank you for the comments!
I found some errors, and a major one, at least in the file I tested... the spinners don't actually do ANYTHING? Literally, I walked right under them. =/ Don't know if that was intended... I don't think so...
My pixel collision detection thing script was terrible
It worked fine on my computer, but for people on older ones it basically ran like a snail and crashed. If anyone ever thinks of making a script that uses 'get pixel' a lot - don't! Took it out at the last minute so it'd be playable.
Knocking off two points because the rockets were sometimes discharged at weird intervals and it messed up the patterns a little, which made for some really cheap deaths. xD
Hehe. The rockets weren't anything fancy - just NPCs who turn invisible and move backwards back to their block.
Also, I was sad that eye thing was never much of a threat! I felt like I should have been nervous that it was following me, but there was never any real sense of urgency.
Originally it charged & fired a beam across the entire screen when it spotted you. You had to get it to charge up in the long passages and hide when it spots you, then it went away again for a few seconds. But it ended up being no fun at all
I'm usually on IRC, not the boards. Upcoming projects involve puzzles & rockets.
