Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Puzzle Game would like help art concept inside

    Puzzle Game would like help art concept inside

    Hey all I have a game idea I would like to implement but have no idea where to begin programing wise. I have coded before, mainly a tank game, and a platformer. However, this idea is different. I have created concept art to better explain the game, they should be posted in this post. If you have any more questions please ask, and if you can help please do. Thanks

    I think this is very similar to tetris. I've done it with java while back, but essentially what you need is a 2D array.

    In it, you keep some integer values to indicate several states... say
    0 for blank
    1 for yellow juicy
    2 for blue juicy
    3 the juicy eater
    4 Mr. F. Juicy...etc

    Obviously given the 2D array at any time, you will have only ONE slot with value 4 and few 3 and lots of the other ones...

    So given 10x10 array... that length ten indicates your game screen and render() simply draws based on that.

    As for logics... each time 'time passes' (enterframe?) you calculate each slot of the array for what's next to it... so if you come across black juicy.. you look 4 ways and see if it needs to 'bust'....etc.

    The order of what you are looking for may matter; if you want things to blow up before you have a chance to check if the juicy filled all the way to the top, then you have to check black juicy condition first.

    Anyway the game looks fun so best of luck!
