Hello world !


I'm back with a small project. 

This time it's a port of a very simple game for Arduboy : CosmicPods.  https://github.com/ArduboyCollection/CosmicPods


It's a very simple shoot'm up but VERY interesting for noobs.

Code are very clear and very easy to understand.

So, i decided to port it on GB Meta. I add bitmaps, colors and rewrite collision function (PointRect and RectRect). It was a very pleasant exercice ! I learned many thing on "struct".


Despite his simplicity, it's a very good game, let's him a chance !

It's fully playable, but i think i will add more sounds and maybe some pixel art too.


Good game and don't forget : no Octopussy must pass !

This does look like a fun game indeed! Maybe adding a highscore list or some sound effects can polish it some more? ^.^

Great job. will have to test that this evening  ;) and yes it's good idea to begin to adapt some of the good games of the arduboy because:

  • it's make some good games for the META first 
  • it's a good way to see structure of the programs and difficulty to resolve 

 - when you do it after someone, you take all his good ideas and you add yours so it's can be better than the original  ;)

I add icon, title, lights and highscore save.

I will try to create some sounds also.

yes, the gzme is good. Just a little problem for me with the collision. Sometimes you're near ennemies but you don't touch them but you explode. I'm not very good but the game is good. you could maybe increasse the size of the step when you move to be able to go more quickly up or down to be able to avoid better the ennemies or destroy  them. Else if you can add music and sfx, this game will be very complete and good

I work on sprites. I take time to draw  new biggers sprites. It was fun :p

I add a routine to randomize color of space octopus !

And Sorunome, you're right. Just with some beeeeeps, it's give some "life" to the game.

Oh yes, nicer. I like your new sprites  ;)   You could maybe change the one of the octopus shots to make them more visible (mainly you have shot some times, you could not see them alot. Maybe you could make them like ship shots but light blue to make like it was bubbles ?)
