Hi, it's been a long time since I posted my 1.0 version of this game, due to a school programming assignment in Java, I didn't have the time to update it. But now the year is coming to its end, and I started working on it again.
If you have suggestions or a bug report, please post it in this thread or mail me. I will try deal with these as soon as my final exams are finished (I'm starting tomorrow, so wish me luck ;))
Portable MasterMind v1.1
This is my first homebrew attempt, it's a simple-concept, but not so easy to win.
The goal is simple, you have to find out what the secret code is.
At the main menu, you can choose if you want to play vs the computer or vs another player.
If you choose 2 player mode, one player has to enter the code, confirm with X, and then hand
over the psp to the other player, who has to guess the code.
Using left and right on your analog pad, you select the circle.
Using up and down you change the cirle's color.
If you are satisfied with the colors of the row, press X.
In the main game screen, the little circles show how good your guess was:
-the number of green circles is the number of correct colors at the correct place
-the number of blue circles is the number of correct colors at the incorrect place
This game is limited to 6 attempts, it is based on mini mastermind which is a mini version
of the original mastermind.
There is also a screenshot option availabe in every screen, just press triangle to save
the screen to your /PHOTO directory (make sure it exists), this is mostly to help psp sites get screenshots.
If feedback is positive, I plan on expanding the game with the following:
- more (and harder) game modes
- high score list
Because I don't have a 2.0+ psp, I cannot confirm if this works with eloader.
This game is the perfect example what you can accomplish thanks to the already available
tutorials regarding psp programming
