Here’s an interesting new game thats just come out on the App Store which seems to be ideally suited to the iPad/touchscreen. Whilst not written in Codea, I guess a game like this would be relatively straightforward to write in Codea:
I really like games that use the touchscreen effectively (rather than simply copying old-school gaming concepts and porting them across). Also, I thought i’d share this as theres been a fair bit of discussion lately about gesture recognition etc which might stir up some further interesting debates.
What about a competition? Topic: innovative gesture-based-game!
That looks really interesting. I’m sure there is some sort of educational possibilities from it as well.
Not specifically gesture based, but saw a video about Forced Perspective. Have a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOfll06X16c. Would work well with touch gestures and the iPad screen.
You’ll already all know about this since it’s made by the creators of Codea, but crabitron is a game that cannot really be implementing on traditional control schemes, too.
@Jmv38 - I like the idea of a gesture-centric competition - lots of potential to do something quite novel. The Easter Codea Cook Off is not far away
Been playing around with Blek this evening and its really well thought out, had my 8 year old daughter playing it and she picked it up straight away which is always a good sign. It has the same abstract simplicity of games like Osmos (another excellent example of a unique game you could only really do on the iPad) - would be keen to know if anyone can suggest other similar style games. Hmmm.
Why do my ideas ALWAYS get taken! I swear the NSA is listening in on my thoughts and reporting them to other developers. :-w I had an idea very similar to this.
@Zoyt - I felt exactly the same when Angry Birds came out - I feel your pain
Am I the only one who HATES angry birds now that they’re over expanding their franchise?
@CodeaNoob - You are far from alone.
I to hate angry birds. There just milking it for money now.
too* and They’re*
Personally, i’m a fan of Angry Birds GO! once i look past the serious push towards in-app purchases. Would i have rather payed 2 bucks once for unlimited play? Sure. But does that mean the actualy game/gameplay sucks and i hate it? Absolutely not.
I just think that they make WAAYYY too many games for something that should’ve been a one or two game series, also, I hate the T-Shirts and merch I see everywhere with Angry Birds on it, One of my biggest pet peeves EVER! Right after Plagarism! The shirts aren’t even funny anyway…
Ok, Back on Topic to the off topic question! Lol
Haha. I’m stuck on level 51 (or 52, I forget). Edit: In Blek.
