#1GAM May 2013: Duel!

May 31, 2013

This month I tackled multitouch and single-screen multiplayer. The game itself is fairly simple and, I’m proud to say, I was able to create the core game in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Still with Haxe/NME+HaxeFlixel—I’m feeling very productive with it. With all the #1GAM practice I’ve been getting, I can go from zero to stuff moving on the screen in about 15 minutes now.

To play: First, find a friend. Launch missiles at each other by holding a finger on the screen until it charges up. Then lift your finger to release it. You can charge three missiles simultaneously. Each player’s base can take exactly 10 hits before being destroyed. I only tested the game on my Nexus 7 so, no promises it’ll work on your device.
