HOP, POP and DIG (screensaver)

Life with the 1BITS (OneBits)


FLEA: Feeling a little blue, will hop and jump for fun.

ROCKY: Feeling abit angry, will burst into stone if it doesn’t calm down.

LOVEY-DOVEY: with a split personality, soon becomes many.

DIGGER: with a bore-ing mood and green with envy, will clear away rocks if it feels like it.

What are they up to? Only they know... ;)

It's fun to watch them, I like it :)

Thanks so much... I do too :)

I believe I’ve given it a nice balance so it will last awhile, always changing, rearranging....

It’s possible for it to jam up, but hopefully not often.... a quick tap on the screen resets it :)

Did you catch the 3 different kinds of rocks? One is normal, one is extra bouncy, and one is extra sticky... :)

I was thinking if this could be made into a game. Not controlling the creatures but the environment. For example that you can put walls or something to make them reach a goal. Or no goal, but just add some interactivity.

Hmmmm..... how about something like if 4 blocks of any kind come together in a 2x2 format they turn into a 2x2 nugget you can tap... when you tap it, it disappears (which opens up more space) ....

I could add different types of tappable 2x2 nuggets... like, silver, gold, ruby, emerald, sapphire... each with differing chances of appearing...,

Wouldn’t be a game as such, more just a scavenger hunt, to pass the time... maybe add a time limit where the rarer they are, the quicker they will dissapear on their own, making the rarer ones more difficult to snag...

The “game” would track how many of each you collect,,,

Hm, i like my idea more :O Or maybe a mix: You can draw walls around them to make them get together and then your idea. Well, obviously this requires experiments, no idea if it would be fun...

Or, perhaps if you touch the screen you make them ALL jump..

I have a prototype of my idea, and it already exceeds 65% of CPU, I won’t be able to add too much more...

It just shows silver coins and you can’t remove just test the ability to add coins ...

was8bit 2019-06-06 13:11

Adding walls WITH the coin thing would let you make your own coins...

Walls wouldn’t directly gather them together as they jump and bounce
