Game Prototype

Hey just a quick update on how my game Sleepy Sheepy Adventures is coming along.

At the minute we have a working prototype. This is what elements we have so far;

  • The sheep has a health, will die if hit three times and moves forward at a constant pace.
  • The camera follows and moves along with the sheep
  • Boulders have a health of three
  • Bushes have a health of one
  • Tap controls - Boulders break apart when tapped three times
  • Slice controls - Bushes break apart when sliced once

So we have the controls and the main elements in, now it's just a case of making it nice looking, designing a level and putting in the menus, sounds etc.

Game Concept

Here's a sneak peek preview of my up and coming game!

In our current module in University, we have to make a smartphone game within a team. I couldn't believe it when my game idea was chosen; Sleepy Sheepy Adventures. I was ecstatic!
It is a cute and colourful 2D game in which the player must guide the sheep safely to the end of each level by overcoming obstacles and dangers that stand in the sheep's way!

We're currently in the process of making it so I will keep you updated on how it is coming along!

What do you think of the idea so far? Let me know in the comments!

Fresh Start

(Myself with a few good friends)

Hey everyone (or at this point in time no-one in particular!)

I’d like to welcome you to my blog about university, games and life in general.
I plan to update this at least once a week and whenever inspiration strikes.

Also I appreciate any and all feedback (preferably constructive).
