Random procedural generation of Pac-Man like mazes
« on: November 01, 2018, 10:53:13 PM »
Now that the aMAZEing contest is over, I thought I'd create a little tutorial on how I created the pac-man like maze in my MineBlast game.

Excellent. That looks quite good. I like it. Nice simple way of explaining it too.

Cool! Thanks for sharing!  8)

Maybe you could expand on it and add chapters for moving around in the maze for the player and AI via A* etc :)

Nice technique. Always cool to see approaches to level generation. I’ve never done this side in my games and I’d like to give that random element.
Until the next time...
