Looks like i’ve been using Lua’s tables feature incorrectly, so much of the code i’d written for the past few hours is wrong. One word – oops.
I’d love to sleep on this and figure out a better way to do it in the morning, but i don’t think i have the time, so it looks like i’m dropping out for this round.
I decided to use Lua because i wanted try out the (admittedly excellent) Love framework, but it looks like i didnt do enough research to really master the language. And, ok, Lua could seriously use a few more features…
Who knew drawing circles of circles in a circle could be so difficult?
I’m working on a puzzle game. In bold defiance of the “of Doom” fiat, I’m using the cheeriest colors I can think of. ^_^ Got a little behind because I had to take advantage of the amazing weather here and ride my bike, but now I think I’m on track.
This game is a TD, a.k.a. Tower Defense, which means that a whole lot of enemies (i.e. peasants – evil, evil peasants!) move along a fixed path, and you have to stop them from getting to the end of that path (the ominous top-right corner of the screen) using whatever means possible. The method I recommend is building sea monsters along the coast, as that’s all the game lets you do. Poison towers slow enemies, ultimate towers live up to their name. Happy peasant hunting!
