It hasn’t been long since the last time I posted but I’ve made some significant updates that I wanted to share!!!
The first thing was to change the jewels into android os themed desserts. A lot of people on Google+ suggested this and it was such a no brainer that I’m embarrassed I didn’t think of it in the first place. But no matter you will now see cupcakes, donuts, and eclairs!!!
I made it so that the game speed increases the longer you play (up to a maximum). Later I will add a powerup that resets the speed back to it’s starting value.
I made a lot of subtle changes to the modular pieces of terrain that can spawn.
- I added more variations of obstacles
- I gave each powerup it’s own object (before it was a single object that would pick a powerup randomly). This makes the pickup placement more appropriate for the nature of each powerup.
- I added a few objects that had no obstacles, just big clusters of desserts!!!
Someone on Google+ (or a couple people) mentioned something about patent trolls which gave me an awesome idea! Now once you hit certain score milestones (200 point intervals for now), you will be faced with a mean green patent troll armed with deadly gavels and a mac pro jetpack!!! WATCH OUT!!!!!!!
The features are coming along nicely and unfortunately the next logical step is to either mess with sound effects or start optimizing (BOOOOORING!!!). But yeah stay tuned…
