Alright, so we have a chick. The good thing is that Chicks are morons! They’re dumb, stupid and lame so AI isn’t really required for those yellow pricks. Of course, later on were in need for some stronger enemy’s with a bit more braincells. At first we figured that making a game with enemies that follow a pattern like the enemies in super Mario and Megaman could be all we need. Difficulty could be managed by giving them lot’s of health and strong weapons. Even though this is a good option to go with we want to keep other solutions open. So, if you’ve got any idea’s about AI, enemies or even the code to realize it, share it with us!
Since I could not find a nice retro wallpaper for my PC at work, I decided to make one my own. Of course I used Smash Battle as the subject. For now I just made a 1280×1024 wallpaper since its for personal use only. If you like it and need another size just tell me and I’ll poop one out for ya. For the wannabees here it is:
Ahhhh finally, we’ve reached a point where were satisfied with the multi-player mode! So what’s next? We think it’s about time we make an single player mission mode. One problem, or actually lots of problems! How do you make up a story line, witch character plays where, who’s stats do you use and most important, who are the enemies! All options are open so if you’ve got any idea about the enemies please let us know 🙂
At this point all playable characters are colleagues of ours. Creating them was really fun! It’s incredibly difficult to get the characteristics and expressions in these low res faces. Until now all worked out really well. Here I’ll post the sprites of the characters used in the game. You can create your own one if you feel like it. I suggest you try to keep the animation as basic as possible since the frame’s in the game are based on these movements. Creating Characters can be a time consuming job but its well worth it! Hope you enjoy them.
So you’re up for some fast, old skool, 2D, platform, shoot ‘m up action!
