re-introduction and new game developments

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  Some of you may have known me as Retrospect, well it's still me but I lost all my login details after one of the computers I was using crashed and died.

So I decided on a namechange.  I chose "Firefly" as a name due to the old Firefly games for the TI99 ... so I've named my account after that.  I have a few games in mind to release during Xmas 2019 and into 2020 ... one of them I've started with is (yet another) plane bombing game, 'cept this is one with a few differences.  

 

Midnight Blitz will have the following;

twinkling stars (similar to Parsec)

tanks that fire at you, that can be destroyed by your bombs (50 percent done)

bombs with decent explosion animations (as in the video)

limited moves up and down to avoid the tank fire (to do)

various amounts of levels with higher buildings (to do)

innocent people who run across the screen, not to be hit! (to do)

music and sound effects (to do)

 

I plan on doing a game for Xmas, it might be "Return to Monsterland" but to be honest the older i'm getting the less concentration and focus I can apply to coding in general (anyone else getting that??)

If you’re talking about the capacity of the old noggin, not yet (I’m 76), but I suppose that is for others to determine. |:)  Right now, I hear a beach calling my name! :)
