    maybe the people think it's the same game as that html5 runner one that uses the same gfx and ignore it?

    totally different game play tho.

    very nice @melonZgz
    are you doing the assets by your self?

    Almost all the graphics for this game and for the UFO are based on assets from opengameart. I "just" modify them until I feel they match together. I know how to use graphic tools, but I'm not a designer, so I don't feel like creating art from scratch, I'm not good at it.

    i think you modify them very well and you make them very unique so in my eyes you are a very good designer.
    it is not simple to make opengameart assets unique.

    very nice assets, i like them.

    btw i purchase a lot assets in graphicriver.com i have another nice platform assets that i will use in the future. now i would like to make my first multiplayer game (over the net). i will start with a simple game and build an multiplayer lib so i can use it in more complex box2d games.
    i think multiplayer games are very popular even if the graphics sucks people like to compete with others.

    i have a very nice idea for a multiplayer game and i think it may become very popular even if the idea is not unique and not such a hard game to do but the multiplayer part may make it a hit.

    Multiplayer is a very good idea for a game, as you say you compete against another player. I like it, but not sure about implementing it, looks too dificult to me... maybe turn based would be easier (like a pool game) than real time.

    yes the first game i will make will be "turn based". it will be something simple. but then i would like to make a multiplayer game something like "slither.io"
    i will need to learn about websockets and server. but i think those game even if the game it self is simple are very popular.

    I've had almost no free time during last month, but I've been working on new worlds:

    As you see there are new enemies and traps, animated lava, fireballs...
    I think I'll finish the second world and I'll release it, and if it has some demand (wich I really really hope!) I'll make the third world: the egyptian tomb

    Hi guys!
    I've uploaded a new beta version.
    There is a new world: 12 new cave levels to play!
    This is almost the final game, still have to do some optimizations and some little things here and there...
    DOWNLOAD IT!

    I don't understand how this game could be a turn-based game. Do the players compete one against the other at the same time? (in this case, I don't understand where are the "turns" and what each player does). Do they play the same levels, one after the other? What happens when a player fails to pass a level? Do they only compete for the best score? (in this case, a simple leaderboard is enough).
    The technical difficulty is not always higher for a real-time MP game. It depends strongly on what you want to do.

    We went out of topic. The multiplayer talk was not about this game. I just shared ideas with @melonZgz about making multiplayer games because they are very popular.

    So the first one i will make will be a turn based multiplayer game. a real-time multiplayer game is a very complicated task :)
