Run Tapper – Next Update Plans

Development, Gaming

Hello all!

rt

It’s been a while, I’ve just finished my University course and I am awaiting results. In the meantime I’ve thought about additions and improvements to Run Tapper. For version 1.5.0 I intended to implement or question the additions of the following. If an item has (?) beside it then I am considering adding it as a feature and any comments as to whether it should be implemented are greatly appreciated.

  • Menu Music (?) – Annoying after long periods ie Level editor?
  • In Game Music (?) – Not sure if this would become jarring if music was added to level generation as the game is fast paced. Perhaps dependant on movement speed.
  • Revised Audio for surfaces
  • Performance enhancements – raise from locked 30fps to locked 60fps

This is my first ever game to be publicly available so please do me a massive favour and give it a go, leave a review and share it with your friends. I plan to continuously update the game to add new features (last main update was online leaderboards and achievements). It’s completely free with no ads and to be able to effectively use it for my portfolio I’ve got to get that install number growing so it would help me out tremendously if you took a look!

Gameplay mechanics include:-

  • Prebuilt Levels
  • Randomly Generated Levels
  • Level Code (share random levels online)
  • Achievements
  • Leaderboards
  • Tons of obstacles
  • Customise your character
  • Teleportation
  • Times for beating a level

Thanks,

Tom

This post was made using my game idea generator. I’m going to be doing “runs” with the idea generator to give you an idea of it’s usage. Today I’ll be using Platform Games as my genre.

Super Mario Maker as a toolset for future developers

My haunted house Mario Maker course.

As a student doing a computer games course I can’t help but wonder how the Games Industry is going to change over the years. When you think about what the first developers were like, you picture coders that went from creating games from scratch. In the present we have many different game engines to use, should we choose to do so. These programmers have such a vast knowledge and they came up with unique ideas and pushed a lot of genres forward. It’s becoming increasingly difficult though not impossible to come up with new genres and ideas.

OpenGL – 2D & 3D Pong

Development, Gaming, Youtube

So in November 2015 I did a Graphics module in which I learnt how to use C++ and OpenGL. I uploaded some footage of the 3D pong in my games portfolio, I have decided to upload separate videos for the pong games as the 2D pong project was unseen. You can find videos below.
