A little arcade game
« on: July 02, 2021, 06:55:00 pm »
Hi friends,

As a side project, I made a 2 players browser game, I thought I would share. It's a mix of Battleship and Missile Command. Can I share the link so you can tell me what you think?

There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

Don't know. Thought it would be polite to ask permission first...
Ok let's go! You'd need a 2nd player though.

I didnt see any ships,  but the explosion looks really cool

Whats BMC stand for,  battleship missile command?

I managed to work youve got automatic missiles,   like it,  plays like a dream nice and smooth, you should finish it.   then turn it into an MMO.

That's because you were the only player connected. It's 2 players only so unless someone else plays too, you don't see any opponent!

I think it needs sound.

edit:

phew, was that you Magnus?
it was hot!!! this thing has a future

A nice touch of different torpedo and missle intercepting ammo. Visuals are also awesome, I like the graphics very much.

edit:
I won three out of five! Is there a high score? And may I suggest some more contrast, things get fuzzy when the whole screen is on fire. But I wouldn't like to ruin the visual art beauty.

ha! so it was you!! I was Aze. Well done, you beat me :)

No, no hiscore for now, but I could make an Elo ranking system for example.

Wasn't the pace too fast?

edit: yeah, you mean darker when there's no explosion, or darker also when there are explosions?

It wasn't easy, but I finally got you!

I think not. Maybe it takes too long before a missle hits the opponent sea, but I don't know if I would change it. It would pace up the game, and somehow I think you got the right pace right now. One turn is not too long, and not too short by my opinion.

And I also like the game minimalism. Ratio between game simplicity and amount of thrill is almost amazing.

Things look perfect when there are no explosions. But a vast of explosions also contribute the battlefield glow, regardless of screen litting. Ships are on fire!!!! Swim for your life!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
