Coming Soon – C3ntipong

This WIP currently has the title of “C3ntipong”

MMMMmmm.. Centipong on Android! (And HTML5 and Windows and Mac and iOS! YES!!)

Why Centipong? I was browsing through my archive of forgotten half-complete projects, and stumbled upon Centipong XNA, a version I started back in 2010, aiming for an XBox release.
One I tried the game with an XBox controller, I very rapidly changed my mind, and soon forgot all about XBox dev!
Luckily, the Centipong_Win.exe is still in the folder, so I gave it a quick try.
..and of course, being a Microsoft developed language which compiled it, the game didn’t fucking work.

That XNA EXE is incompatible with this Windows 7.
..An EXE that is ONLY 3 years old!!!
*sigh*

Then I played [url=http://jayenkai.socoder.net/GameList.php?ShowJust=72]the original Centipong[/url], which I wrote 2 years prior to that using Blitz, and it ran perfectly.
God bless you Mark Sibly, and all the Blitz Research crew!
You’ve done a bang up job!

Centipong is now 5 years old, if you can believe that!
Blimey, that went quick!
About time we got a decent sequel, am I right?!

The gameplay is working, tomorrow I’ll dig into the level structure, and then I’ve a bit of spare time to add that all-important “Niceness” that people keep whinging on about.
Sorted!!
