The Shapes Game

Posted 05 July 2012 - 02:58 AM

I just finished off a couple classes at uni., Calculus I (73%), and Linear Algebra I (92%), and really wanted to create a game using at least a couple of the skills i've learned. So in a 8-day break between summer classes, i created "The Shapes Game." I used the bare allegro graphics with no dependancies other than 1 .truefontfile file.

If anyone has the time to spare to play the game and maybe make a critique i would be very appreciative.

Facts:
- 802 lines.
- 8 days to make.
- Im 18 years of age.

How to play: Survive 30 seconds, while trying to calculate the reflected vector off the indicated shape in that level to avoid being hit. Currently only level 1 is playable.

What i learned:
- Unit vectors
- Reflection vectors off of surfaces (ei: circles)
- Applying rotation matrices
- Point-in-rectangle/point-in-circle formula
- Other Computer Science concepts

How to download:

Congratulations, you have clearly done well and you should be proud. Unfortunately, I can't download your game since the network I am on blocks almost all file hosting sites, outside of my control.

Thanks!

I try to put up screen shots for those in your situation or who dont want to open the .exe(an understandable risk) to play or see the game.

In about a week i should be coming out with another project, except in OpenGL. It will follow the same structure as this game with 1 demo level so you can see how the game works.
