The Hallowed Orb
« on: December 16, 2013, 05:22:08 am »
Hey guys!

Long time SFML user here. I wanted to share the Ludum Dare game I made using SFML (again).

It's called The Hallowed Orb.

Here's the link: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=3876

I also streamed my development, so you can check out the VODs and my process here if you'd like: www.twitch.tv/ekunuke/profile/pastBroadcasts



cheers!

I've been watching your stream recordings, and I've got to say that your game looks awesome for only a 48-hour window. Good work!  ;D

It's awesome! And bloody hard too! I've got to the wave 7, it seemed less difficult than the previous one, swarming with shielded frogs, but I had only 1 life left and failed... Still trying to overpass my record. Is there a finite number of levels? I guess there are 10 or less, and there is a boss in the last one. I want to finish this game so bad :D I've spent so much time on it already, but I can't help it, it's so addicting ;D

Yep there's only 10 levels, with a boss on the last one. The game is indeed really tough, please let me know if you successfully beat it! :)

Got to the wave 10 few times... Each time he kills me mercilessly. Would be changing some variables in the source code considered cheating? ;D

I wouldn't consider it cheating, haha.

I didn't really have time to balance the game during Ludum Dare. If you come up with some good and fair changes, consider submitting a pull request :)

Nice game!  :)

I have a suggestion: can you also include some level upgrades and weapons stuff? That would make your game more better.
