Game announcement: TBFTSS - The Pandoran War


HOME ยป Ubuntu

All,

A few years ago, I wrote a sci-fi novel trilogy, called The Battle for the Solar System. Recently, I started working on a game, set in the trilogy's universe.

The Pandoran War is a 2D mission-based space shooter, where you take on the role of multiple pilots and starfighters, to battle against a hostile force threatening to eradicate the human race. The game is non-linear, with the player granted the chance to tackle missions as they see fit (as long as prerequisites are met).

Sources:

The game is hosted on GitHub at : https://github.com/stephenjsweeney/tbftss. There are a few known issues in the v0.4 release, which are fixed in the develop branch on github, and will be added to the v0.5 release, around March / April time. Feel free to play the develop branch, instead of master, if you prefer. The game depends on SDL2, and is mainly mouse driven.

There are source and binary downloads available here:

I'm blogging about stuff I'm working on for the game every now and again at my personal website: www.stephenjsweeney.com, if you fancy checking that out, too.

Oh, I highly recommend you read the online manual, here: http://www.battleforthesolarsystem.com/games/pw/manual/

Happy New Year!

Looking for a Rome - Total War like game for Ubuntu

Hi,
I was looking around for games for Linux, but up to now I did not really find something that suits me. The best would be some turn based thing like Rome. The grafics do not need to be spectacular - but I hate it if they are overly colourful and childish ;)
Thanks for any advice.

Word Chain: announcement of new Ubuntu Touch game, and a question for forums users
Ubuntu
I've been working on a new game for Ubuntu Touch (and to be entered in the App Showdown). It's called Word Chain. If you have an Ubuntu Touch phone you can find it in the Dash ready for download. If you don't yet have a device you can download a click package or a zip at the app's website, http://wordchainapp.appspot.com/. I'd love to hear people's thoughts on it :) I've also been trying to make some detailed developer notes at the developer blog, http://wordchainapp.tumblr.com/ on things that I've discovered about building apps for Touch.
I do have a question which I would be interested in forumgoers ideas on. The game contains a built in "challenge": you collect word
Where to start creating an android game similar to game of war?

My main question is- What is used to create the map for a game like game of wars? I've looked up using tiles, surface holder, opengl, etc, but I'm still not quite sure how you create a map that's slanted and not totally flat with objects like buildings popping up.

Thanks


Deck of Cards/Game of War
Ubuntu

I need help making a game of war. The first code is my Card class which stores a single card, and the second code is what creates a deck, shuffles, deals, and deals a specific amount. I also have a third program that actually runs all the methods. For extra credit I can create a method/class that will simulate a game of war against the computer. I've tried many things but have had no luck. Also I can make a game of Black Jack if anybody has any suggestions on that.

public class Card
{
    private int value;
    private String suit;

    public Card (int inValue, String inSuit)
    {
        value = inValue;
        suit = inSuit;
    }

    public int getValue()
    {
        return value;
    } 

    public String getSuit()
    {
        return suit;
    }

    public String toString()
    {
        if(value>1 && value<11)
        {
            return "" + value + " of " + suit;
        }
        else if(value == 1)
        {
            return "Ace of " + suit;
        }
            else if(value == 11)
            {
                 return "Jack of " + suit;
            }
                else if(value == 12)
                {
                    return "Queen of " + suit;
                }
                    else
                    {
                        return "King of " + suit; 
                    }
    }
}
