Sky Maze 3D
« on: October 20, 2010, 03:16:56 am »
as in game graphics are almost complete, it's time to go public :D

this is a simple ball control game, purpose is to reach exit tile. controlled by touching screen and requires multi touch. seems as an N1 or higher device will be necessary. i've found no direct way of forcing this, so i assume forcing high resolution will practically result in such devices.

this game is a port (with minor modifications) of a flash game with author's permission.

here are some shots, all taken from stock N1 running Android 2.1.

simple start level. background image and possibly clock will change. the debug string w:5 means there are 5 objects in the world


another level with simple turns. by collecting diamonds extra points can be earned


a jump high level. this kind of levels are most fun IMHO


a big level and demonstration of breakable tiles.


my test level. red tiles are lava, the downward moving circles represent magnet tile is on, on upper right teleport tile is visible:


same test level with a different angle. lava particles can be seen. i've cut down the number of lava particles for performance


cheers ;D
r a f t

edit: corrected the title

Two questions:

  • Is "Jumpy" the official name? I would like to add it to the projects page, but i'm not sure if this is the final name or a working title
  • Is the flash game in 3D too?

Great looking project.  I don't have a cell phone, though. I like the tiles with the spaces between.

added a sky box. indeed as the camera always looks down maybe it's better called ground box ;D

i've also made many gui related things. screens, preferences etc. i really hate these tedious jobs >:( they took so much time. i had implemented first prototype of game logic (still mostly unchanged) within less than a week. my boss didnt believe that and blamed me stealing regular job time for this game ::) in contrast these completion and gui things took weeks and still there are many things to do :(

some screenshot with the new ground box


same scene at a different angle

Everything related to GUIs bores me to death...which is why i'm not very good at Swing for example. Anyway, nice ground box... ;)

below are a few more screenshots. and here is the test apk: Jumpy3d-beta.apk
most things are in place now. there will be 50-60 levels. music and sound will change. btw does anyone know where to find good quality free or low price music and sound effects?

too bad, that i can't play it on my device... :'(
yes, too bad :( i'd like to hear your comments
