Triss - Code a game competition - May 4th to June 30th
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:50:57 PM »
Hi,

Here is my entry to the Code a game competition - May 4th to June 30th! Only just made it.

You can download the game for Windows or Mac at https://aaronkthorne.itch.io/triss

This is my first game entered to the SyntaxBomb competitions, I really hope that you will like and enjoy it.
It's not complete, it has a couple of bugs  :( I have some more plans for the game.

I would love to hear some feedback and comments on the game.

I survived 13 minutes on my 4th attempt, it was pretty fun but also stressful trying to clicking the little arrows as quick as I could.

Great twist on Tetris and very well done :)

I would like the option to click and drag in the direction I want the squares to go rather than having to click on the arrows. I think that would help when things get frantic.

Until the next time...

on the mac (downloaded twice)
when trying to run it says:
"“Triss.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash."

downloading the windows version instead :)

Hi, Morpheus, the graphics of your game are quite nice and beautiful. Were the graphics made by you?

May I ask one more question? What language was used by you to make Triss? It is because I am making a list. Thanks a lot.

Yes all the graphics are made by me. Made using Adobe Fireworks and Affinity Designer.

The game is written in GML, Game Maker Studio 2.

I guess MacOS doesn't like my game much then  :o

Looks like the Zip is corrupt on ITCH, going to create a DMG and re-up.

Thanks,

I've had this with much bigger stuff like (would you believe) the latest Blender!

New Zip uploaded for Mac. Worked OK on my old Mac so hopefully will be OK now  :'(

I had the same issue originally but unzipping with another app and not the inbuilt MacOS one did the trick.

same problem - unzipped is trash.

Not sure how you are compressing the files. maybe try just using 'compress' and not another app?

I liked the presentation of it and the concept. but found the left tile panel a but fiddly to use and it not as rewarding as it could have been.
but the graphics and everything fitted together very well.
I did notice the hand cursor hides behind the tris logo as well :0

Nice little game, if it was a little slower it would be a nice relaxing one too! :P

I had a little bug with an overlap shape but didnt really bother me.

The music suited the game too!

Top job! I'll be playing it some more!

I am still toying with the idea of being able to drag the colours in the grid. Maybe with a key held down? Maybe with the right mouse button? I was also thinking that the game would work nicely on mobile devices. So I would have to come up with a solution for a double tap to start drawing the shapes? Lots to ponder! Any other ideas or suggestions would be welcome  ;)

Thanks for the comments: Those are the two bugs that I intend to squash as soon as possible.
1: The Logo is just being drawn in the wrong order, simples!
2: The shapes overlaying bug has been around for a while; I wanted to have a playable game ready for the competition, what with a lot going on in real life and time constraints of the competition I decided to try and fix that post entry.

Squashed the 2 game bugs:

1. Hand going below the logo.
2. Shapes no longer merge on occasion!  ;D

Time to look at the other entries and vote! Good luck to all entries.
