It's been a while since I've been able to post, and for good reason.  I've recently gotten my second job, along with taking four accelerated courses (and another required course) at my high school while playing two sports.  I haven't been able to take the time to program, but I have begun a project with Lewa called Glactris.

Glactris will be a puzzle-type platformer similar to Tetris in its gameplay.  You will pick up and drop blocks in a Tetris column with blocks falling at you from the top of the screen.  You must quickly move the blocks around to put similarly-colored blocks together, which will destroy them.  The goal of the game has yet to be fully determined, but one idea we have is to get off to the bottom of the screen by "digging" through the blocks through your placement of the tiles.

I'm sorry, but the game is very early in development, and thus we have no downloadable beta to show you.  We do, however, have a screenshot full of Lewa's wonderful new graphics!

Anyway, I hope that we can get this game done for once, since we always seem to drop projects halfway through!  This game has simple gameplay elements though, and can be completed without gimmicks fairly quickly.  After this, we can add power-ups and other elements and call it done when we see fit.  Wish us luck!

Yoyogames Community Game Project: Part 5

I entered this part of a game into the Yoyogames Community Game Project as the fifth part.  The game is still in development (not this section, but the others) but I've chosen to go out with mine and show it off a bit.  This game is just a usual shoot-em-up platformer where you are an ogre who shoots out blue blasts from his weapons.  There are a few enemies who come after you, and you rack up combos by blowing them up.  I've added online highscores here, and I hope you guys enjoy the game!
