    Hi All,

    Just wanna let you know, my next game 'Pixel Flight' is in the works and coming along fine so far. As I'm developing the game further, I thought it'll be great if I post some of the work that I've done so far. So without further ado, here is my first post. An animated gif of the playable character;

    The best single sentence to describe the game is it's a 'simple tap control endless vertical flyer with other birds as obstacles'

    Obstacles

    Here's the obstacles in the game. All of 'em are unique birds so as player flies up and see the birds, they know whats coming in terms of the way these birds fly;

    Scene for the game.

    Here's the scene for the game. There will be parallax scrolling for the buildings and the clouds. I don't want the scene to be too static so the clouds was coded to move slowly across the scene with each clouds have slightly different drifting speed. The brick wall will be the place where your bird will be perching before taking off.

    Non interactable flying vehicles

    Thought I sprinkle randomly some flying vehicles in the background;

    So.... I thought I post an actual gameplay video. Well, more like a video of me playing the game. It's a really candid video so there's some minor cussin'. FYI I usually play the game better but I was in an awkward seating position where I was almost hugging my macbook that doubles as the stand for the iPad I'm using to capture the game play. So I'm literally playing the game with a macbook in the way and my arms are slightly stretched.

    Hei you know what.....that's not a bad idea....i think I might just do that. I'll probably do it today since I'm almost done with the game.

    Nothing actually. Flying vehicles are more like background decorations.

    Ooh I like the look of this Hafiz! I'm generally not a fan of the Flappy Bird style of tap gameplay but something about your version really appeals to me! Looks like it would be fun and challenging without being too frustrating.

    Thanks meejahor. Great that you notice that. I tweak and re-tweak the difficulty curve many o times. You can imagine the amount of play test i did to find hopefully the right balance of challenge and fun. I hope others will agree.

    Thanks HeshaAmiri. This is the first game i made with a pixel art-ish style. Hopefully other will like it too.

    I've integrated Everyplay (seems like everyone is doing that these days) so that folks can record their gameplay. The game has been submitted to the AppStore last week and i'm still waiting for it to be reviewed.

    Aaargh. So close to beating my own records. I was slightly shaken after that. Adrenalin rush. Didn't expect that.
