Thanks for the comments and suggestions.
The assignment is due sometime next week so I doubt I'll have time to add much before I hand it in. Hopefully I'll continue adding to it afterwards, though.
This is the first full game I've programmed, and unfortunately I made poor decisions in the coding practices. Game content is hard to add, it would require a lot of code refactoring. Ah well, I'll learn from these mistakes and hopefully my next game will be easy to extend.
For the main menu i get some chars cropped
Heh yea that was a bug with Hiero or AngelCodeFont or something. I'll see if I can fix them up somehow, I heard kev mention something about padding.
Every time I tried to play a custom map, it just exits.
Ah sorry, not sure how I missed that on the webstart. I'll fix it up now..
A timer for score.
Good suggestion. I'll see if I can get around to this.
A longer music track on the main menu.
Heh yep I still gotta change the sounds around, trying to find some that fit well is harder than I thought.
Animated background. Maybe alpha transparency behind the board.
PS - Where'd you get the graphics?
Made 'em in Photoshop with brush & shape tools.
