[quote="SuperV":111up59k]Good job!!! This is a really good engine for a game. I fell in love with the artwork. The style is consistant and awesome.
I have to say, though, that the player shouldn't rotate in any other direction except left or right. It feels strange.[/quote:111up59k]
The rotate thing I'm going to fix up with some animation directions as well as a few other things I am toying with... like I said, this is merely a simple test, it is nowhere near a release of any kind, I just wanted to show you guys and get some general feedback.
I'll try to work on some character animations today... it seems that is the next priority lol.
[quote="QuaziGNRLnose":111up59k]i like it but, i dunno, the controls suck. like really badly, also, u should replace those hanging cubes with 3d boxes i think itll look way cool like that[/quote:111up59k]
Any suggestions for better controls? I tried using a "look at mouse" with a cross hair, but that was way more awkward. I also tried making the whole thing mouse driven, like point and click style, but that sucked even more. Personally I felt the 8 way gave it more of an arcade feel which is what I'm trying to go for, but if you have another way I can try I'll be more than happy to give it a go.
Also, tried 3d cubes, it was my first thought actually... trouble is they "clip" over the top of the chain sprite on certain angles and it looks wrong, so I stuck with the 2D concrete block.
