View Full Version : 2D Space Shooter and Prince of Persia-like game...

I'm working on two games right now and the question always is will I finish it! :)

I started working on a prince of persia like game (jump-and-run game), however while working on it I noticed I missed some of the basic knowledge I needed to make a good game out of it, so I started writing a simple 2D arcade space shooter to gain some basic knowledge on how a simple sprite engine works etc. that last game is almost finished and when I like the code I might write a tutorial on it and then I might continue my work on the prince of persia like game ... :roll:

Excellent! Be sure to post pics when you've finished.

Btw, you might want to have a look at A Gameprogrammer's Journey (http://www.a-rosendal.com/), which is a Delphi dude talking about how he created his shoot-em-up. It may give you ideas for your own tutorial and/or things to cross-reference.

P.S. Apologies if the above site URL isn't correct. For some reason, it's blocked at work as being pornographic(?!).

The url you posted is correct. Too bad you can't view my site though. I must say, the reason sounds very strange to say the least :shock:

Anyway, I too am working on a platform game/tutorial. Although it's taking a bit longer than expected I do hope it will be finished before end '02. In the meantime there's a sample available on my website, (http://www.a-rosendal.com), in case you want to know more about it.
