with all these games im rating and offline exes what is stopping someone from having a bogus game on top of something more sinister ..like as im playing the game it is quietly deleting files in the background from random places it finds etc..
surely it wouldn’t be hard to write something to do that..im sure i could ..or maybe im missing something heh
was just a thought as it has just dawned on me.. i suppose its all just based on a trusting community thing?! ..some people are just evil at heart tho
i hope im not giving anyone any ideas heh ;p
if you don’t like the game you might like
the music/sfx as i spent far too long on them ;p
i kind of went off on a tangent and lost the theme really (my idea wasn’t that good to begin with heh)
but i came up with something, so here it is
i decided to leave the gfx clean’ish. i probably spent abit too much time on the music and sfx
but i was trying to make up for lack of theme and a rubbish game ;p
i dont think il use java next time..starting to do my head in with all the security things
(sorry if you get a security msg, i don’t know how to get around it)
thanks guys.. had fun cheers
arrows / wasd
-just hover off the blue objects until they disappear
-avoid the orange/red object
-u can recharge in the middle (green)
-you are safe on the outsides (depending on which way the orange object is coming)
you can try it here if you like
every ludum i spend like 50% of my time trying to make
the bloody thing work online with libraries etc..
works perfectly fine locally via eclipse
but not from browser now as seem oracle have done some security thing.. tried looking to lower security settings in java ctrl panel but it doesn’t have the bloody slider.. grr heh
anyways im done but just need to sort this easyogg lib out online
i shall learn another language for the next one as my java days are done..sod it
i even had to google how to do random numbers
maybe im just getting old.. new things have pushed the old out (ala homer)
all the basics are what is taking up all my time
i managed to have a moving red square on the screen ..YES!
missed the last one and haven’t programmed in a while now..
but i should be able to come up with something
java / reason
i completely forgot about this .. i see i have only 10 hours until close..
need to get working on something ..
hey ho again
didn’t have much time (most of 1 day)
but managed to bang something out
turn all the grey blocks red (simples).
you die from colliding with a red block.
it gets quite hard fast.
too much stuff has come up unless i can squeeze something out of a few hours tommorow
good luck to all that entered tho and i look forward to playing them ALL ;p
god they seem to come round fast now heh..
ive not been programming since the last one so i mite need to do a warm up
ive not done much since the last one and i have a pre-planned all day party to go to on saturday (bah)
but i hope to get coding even if i am uber hungover
i never thought i would make and would like alot more time to do it as i spent FAR too much
time on the music/gfx this time ;p sorry in advance for the gameplay haha
i AM happy with the music and the graphics tho and its the taking part and community that counts
you can try it out here :
arg was out lastnite and didnt mean to get that drunk.. now just woke up with a massive headache and blurry eyes… gona have to think of something and start coding soon as already running out of time ;p
tiny world eh.. hmm
currently i have a pain down my left side but hopefully it should clear up for the weekend

this is my 1st post mortem so i dont really know what to put or start with..
i DO know that i really enjoyed talking to like minded people for once and being part of the great community
what went right:
i was quite happy with the overall gfx side of everything.. ideally i would of tried to get some more effects etc in there but time and all.. i was pleased with the droning BGM aswell… just borderline annoying as to still in your head hehe
what went wrong:
i spent far too much time trying to get the sound working better as the game should rely heavily on this part but i just couldnt seem to get certain sound libs to perform glitch free and had to spend some time trying to learn others quickly and in the end i just decided on a simpler approach.
ideally i wanted to have the pitch/pan and gain to reflect how far and which direction to sonar bounced off a wall etc but it was forever crackling and not working properlly (it probably down to me not understanding to libs fully)
what i learned:
i had a good few i deas for the theme but quickly realized they would have taken alot longer than i had so had to scrap them and think of a simpler but diff concept. i realized im not that bad of a programmer and if pushed can produce things quick enough gfx/sound especially (not in a big headed way just in that normally i constantly put myself down and never think im decent at anything..anyhoot ;p )
like i said previously i enjoyed it thoroughly (and still am with the community side) and i do like rating games altho i do think it would be better possibly if each entrant was given 20 random(least ranked) entries to rank (not knowing whos game you were ranking) to stop people going straight for their favs ?! maybe after the 20 random then it would open up and let you rank further entries ?
ahh i duno heh
well anyhoot thanks to every1 who puts on this comp and to all the ppl ive met since ..until next time my like minded loons
p.s heres mine if u dare murhahaha
ive updated the zip with some libs that meant some ppl couldnt run it.. it should work for every1 now
heres my 1st 48hr contribution
a game where you have to use your ears and mind instead of your eyes!
10 taxingly blind levels
