Spheres of Tears
« on: February 02, 2007 »
I find this one really addictive. Its still missing a splash screen and a menu maybe a selection of levels but as it stands its a working game.

Shit Rain, that's a great little game :)

Taj, it needs the yabasic emulator to run it mate.

Here you go taj

You'll really enjoy a load of the things in this forum.
PS2 Yabasic has no sound, no bitmaps, all it can do are triangles, gourad triangles, rectangles and lines and that's about it.
You'd be amazed at what was managed :)

Thank you I'm glad you like it. I really took my time and paid alot of attention to making the balls react and bounce properly, I threw everything I could fit in there. But it does need a few more levels and a menu.

Excellent work!  The game is easy to learn and yet exciting to play.  I was especially thrilled by the sudden death mode :)

Wow! A bit of it I understand, but there's too much interaction for me - my mind is just too mechanical.
The game IS addictive. Maybe just one more go...

It gets really hard on the open levels because the ai doesn't get caught next to a hole tryin to get to another ball on the opposite side. I think I might add some text when you collect an item just to indicate exactly what you just picked up. Save everyone the hassle of figuring it out cos they only add subtle changes.

My nephew is officially addicted to this he was laughin like an evil genius while playin it. He suggested a pause option and an indicator of what item was just picked up so I threw those features in here ...

Thats a real good game! Beautiful graphic generation... boy you make good games Rain!!!
And it's hard... lol... my ball bounces back like it has been hit by a truck :(
He tilts, and his eyes are focused on the ground far below.. Wind? Angels? Men..
