My seven day roguelike -<ready to play!>-
« on: March 07, 2010, 02:00:01 pm »

As you probably already know this week is 7d RL week.  My entry into the competition is going to be a jelly farming game. Where you protect your jellies from vicious kobold attackers.
here is a kobold that stepped on a landmine.

I added a shove mechanism so that I can move the jellies to safety. They split when they get attacked or when they eat too much.
I'm still open to gameplay mechanics.

Sounds like it'll be fun. I'm also entering the competition. I might post it here once it gets some more substance.

As for a gameplay mechanic, maybe you only need to protect the jellies until they mature, when you need to push them into a bottling facility. Older jellies are worth more, but start to get smelly and attract more predators.

Not only is it not actually advertising anything, it's just copy/pasting word salads about gold, runescape, oil, yuan, and handbags.  It's like a transporter accident combined all the spambots into one shambling mass of online sales.

ooh that's excellent I like the smelly detail.  The game ends when all the jellies are gone.

Sounds cool.

I added pushing to a game I made in class a week ago,
 and it was really cool.
I'll probably put a similar mechanic in Cloud Scream.

I don't know the details of it but pdcurses is the most likely.
at Armok yes this is the idea that I posted in your thread, I liked it and it meant I didn't have to come up with another one.

right now I'm a little stuck because I'm trying to make a 2-dimensional array of pointers that point at linked lists of monsters but I'm having trouble getting c++ to understand that I'm asking it for a 2d array of monster pointers.

jelly *arr[n1][n2];
jelly *ess = arr[5][6];
ess = arr[5][6];
arr[5][6] = ess;

error: cannot convert ‘jelly**’ to ‘jelly*’ in initialization
error: cannot convert ‘jelly* [n2]’ to ‘jelly*’ in assignment
error: incompatible types in assignment of ‘jelly*’ to jelly* [n2]’

did you overload the = operator for jelly?

edit: a 2d array of pointers to linked lists? that doesn't seem very efficient at all. Why are you doing that?

so I don't have to scan through the list of monsters to see if there are any on that tile.
I can just enter the coordinates and it tells me what monsters are at that location

I found the problem
instead of saying array[1][2]; I said array[1,2]

I hit my head against the wall again. For some reason shove stopped working and I all the things that I think could be responsible look bug free when I examine them.

edit: and found it, I had changed the game from real time to turn based so the input was out of sync with the display.

the game now has fences that you can put up and take down to direct where the jellies go
and I changed to food to look like grass.
