Testing frantic / beta discussion thread

Post by ecvej » Fri Feb 11, 2011 11:29 pm

Thread for discussing the test game announced here.

Please remember the game is nowhere near being finished:
  • Graphics are basic.
  • Not many new features have been implemented (my first focus has been updating the ancient v1 code). New features will follow much more quickly once the code is improved.
  • WAP not done yet.
  • Autopilot system doesn't work in frantics but I've left the interface displaying so you can look at it and suggest improvements.
  • Java needed to load the map. I'll do a version in flash shortly which will load quicker.

If you're wondering what the game settings are then you can view them here e.g. it's 5 moves to hyper.

1 min for both - the timer goes red when you can't jump.

thanks.

You can hyper cloaked. Not sure if that's intentional or not, but if it is it's a great addition.
