It's now been about a month since I've released anything, and it seems as if TTR is getting a little old now, even for me. So, I decided to look back through some of my unfinished projects, when I came across this one, that I scrapped because I simply couldn't be bothered to finish it.
2 Hours later, here we are, a whole new game.
Claxor was one of my first ideas for a game that I ever had when starting LUA, but when I attempted to make it, it was too hard at the time. Give or take a few months, and here we are.
Claxor is quite a simple game, you basically need to draw lines and bounce a ball off them to get the ball into the red box, using only straight lines, and with a limited number of them. Since this is a BETA, its still a little buggy, but nontheless quite enjoyable.
Just a few screenshots...
The game's GFX don't look like much now, once again having to be done in MS paint, so don't even bother commenting on them. They will be much improved for the next version, when I have someone to work on them for me.
The game's controls areactually quite complex for the minute, as what with being quite glitchy, I've had to incorperate a lot of choice to still make it enjoyable.
The controls are as follows:
X - Start/Stop drawing line
R - Next level/Re-randomize level
L - Previous Level
Select - Change View
^ This is just a cool trick I figured out how to do whilst playing around with the game's collision. There are 3 viewpoints, Normal lines only, Construction lines only, and both. The construction lines basically show where the ball will collide, but what with them refreshing every milisecond or less, the tend to move around the screen to hit the ball, and it looks quite cool. I've left them in just for you to see, although drawing whilst only viewing construction lines is not recommeded.
Some known glitches to be fixed include that the ball passes straight through straight lines, horizontal or vertical, and that the ball can't tell if a line tries to deflect it downwards. Also, a few more levels would be good to. Expect to see all this in the version, which should be out sometime soon.
Well, with all that said, have fun.
