Discovery Shuttle Defender - FatherGoblin - Competition Entry
This is my first Ludum Dare Compo, so please go easy on the less than constructive criticism. Please give me suggestions for next time.
This game is programmed in Java 2D Swing extending JFrame. I started with a small amount of code that is a collision detection tutorial: http://zetcode.com/tutorials/javagamestutorial/collision/
No fancy IDE, just textpad.
Artwork was done using MS Paint.
Audio is seriously, intentionally a joke.
I put about 12 hours leisurely into this game.
If I would have had more time, I would have put more effort into the collision detection(right now the boundaries are the sprites dimensions) and figured out some transparency on the sprites so that when they overlap you don't see the corners of the sprite.
To play the game, you'll need to modify the run.bat file to point to where java.exe is on your computer. Honestly, this is where I would like suggestions as to how to distribute a binary. Complete source is included on zip file on MediaFire link.
To play the game is as simple as space bar to fire, arrow keys to move.
