    Super Tower Ascent 2 – Final

    Here it is, friends. I hope it works on windows. I was really laggy on the only windows machine I could test it on, but I’ll try it on my windows partition later tonight. It works as intended on my Mac though. I’ll try it on Linux tomorrow as well.

    I was rather uninspired at the end, but I hope you all enjoy it anyway! I feel like I had time to do a game with larger scope, but I didn’t have an idea that was big enough.

    The Mac and Windows dists should work now, please let me know if they don’t.

    Got it done!

    Jump through the levels and grab the golden owls to win.

    left/right = move
    spacebar = jump
    r = reset level
    ESC = exit

    Used pygame, pyopengl and pybox2d.

    Py2Exe version for windows here.
    Source version for everyone else here.

    EDIT: Check Bikko’s awesome comment if you want a quick guide on building pybox2d in linux

    Rise Of The Owls

    Rise Of The Owls

    It’s a TD game that takes place inside a tower. You will enjoy it if you learn the hero abilities! It’s fairly easy to win (though sometimes it seems insane) once you know how, but to get a high score requires great skill and daring.

    win32 version: Click On Me (1.12mb)

    If it doesn’t work for you, you can try the command line argument “opengl” to run it in openGL instead of DirectX. Probably won’t help, but hopefully it works anyway!

    [updated with bbfreeze link instead of just sources]

    Here is the final entry: http://allefant.googlepages.com/OwlbyAllefantsourceandwin32.zip

    It should contain now an “owl.exe” which supposedly will work without python/pygame/pyopengl. It’s made using bbfreeze. No idea if it actually works. If you have the three dependencies, then running run.py should work instead.

    Not really done, but I’m too tired to do anything anymore. It’s possible to reach the top, just recorded a video of it, will post it later. It’s way too hard/tedious in any case. In the end, I wasted too much time on little things (like getting the 3d-wrap-around done) and spent way too little time on the actual gameplay and level design. Oh well, still was lots of fun, I coded more-or-less non-stop :)


    Oh, nice comments..  editing here as a reply. A few things:

    If you run into a cat while carrying a block, it will respawn at its original position. So you can always get the map back to its original state.. just can be somewhat tedious :)

    The tunnel cat jump is rather easy, harder jumps are waiting further up. The three mice below it should give you a hint about the solution :)

    If you don’t want to repeat the two times of tedious block-building in the beginning, open up “data/The Tower.txt” in a text editor, then find the “P” in line 79 (and don’t ready any lines below to avoid spoilers :P), and replace it with a “.”. Then go to line 30 or wherever you want and replace a “.” by a “P” :) After tunnel cat some more difficult jumps and two less tedious blocks puzzles await, so if you actually played until up there, it might be worth it :)

    He’s watching me…
