"non-WebGL" version of Hüpfen now playable in the Scirra Arcade.

Of course it plays really well in CHROME, but also plays really well in Safari and Internet Explorer (go figure!). It doesn't play so great in Firefox for some reason.

Here's some screenshots of gameplay from the Safari browser.







This is the "original" version uploaded on Jan 1st:

Wow, the game runs really well in the Scirra Arcade on my iPad. Way to go Scirra!

I was surprised because I have been trying for weeks to get decent framerates on my "preview over lan" connected iPad, so was psyched to see it work so well (better) "on line"! (made me think maybe I can stop working on that aspect for now!)

Thanks again to Scirra for creating such an awesome tool in Construct2!

Here's a gameplay video of how it looks running in the Safari browser. (I had to tweak the artwork a little to work without the WebGL effects)

I don't understand what to do, but the game is beautiful. Maybe add some more explination in the instructions?

Hey thank you so much for the feedback and for playing the game!

Sorry for the confusion (but isn't that part of the fun?) In any case, here are the instructions from the "instructions" drop down menu on the Arcade page:

  • "Defend the ground by shooting the invading "Buff Monsters".


  • Your player icon is the funny looking "sun" thing with the smile, bouncing around. Photons shoot out from his "eyes" in the direction he is facing.


  • To fire Photons, press SPACE, or MOUSE CLK or TOUCH SCREEN (if you have a touch enabled device).


  • Do Not shoot the "Big Buff Cloud" or you will loose points. Be careful with your shots, don't "spam shoot". Try to time your shots and make clever bank shots.


  • Shoot the "Doodle Block" - the dark square thing bouncing around - to cause it to act as a Photon. It will loose its "photon power" if it passes through the Big Buff Cloud or Spawn Cloud (thing at top that spawns Buff Monsters).


  • Score more points than the "Buff Monsters" to continue play."


Here is the in game "How to play" layout as well:



Hope that helps and that you will give it another try! I've found that shooting less, works a lot better (See YouTube video above).

Cheers!

Updated the icon - maybe that will catch people's eyes. I didn't realize it would be so small!

Updated the graphics for the March release (soon!) of Hüpfen.

Hopefully this will be easier for people to follow the action. I tried to keep the feeling/spirit of the original Chrome Web Store look, but also make it clearer. I also finessed some particle effects and rearranged the "how to" page.



I will upload this new version to the Scirra Arcade once I get this off to Kongregate. Scirra Arcade would not let me upload with my current (stable) version of C2, it wants me to update to the latest beta.

@tchem THANK YOU so much! I really appreciate it.

Hüpfen hasn't been received so well on the game sites (Kongregate, New Grounds, Game Jolt, Market JS) - most "gamers" don't get it, or think something is wrong with the graphics - lol. I had kind of lost heart in putting it out there any further. So it was very nice to read your comments.

Thanks again for trying the game and playing with an open mind!
