Dive into the depths

This game is for a jam called the dive jam.

Big thanks to Timo for helping me with the light effect

You could use the second BG as a mask over it.

Thanks that’s a great idea, but how do I fill the screen??

You mean the mask BG? You'll have to create characters for it. One complete opaque, and some with the shape of the light. Then I would create a 32x32-cell BG in the BG Designer which fills everything with the opaque character, except of the part for the light. Then you put this BG on top of the current one and you scroll it, so the light is on top of the diver. Important: To make a BG cover sprites, their cells must be drawn with the "priority" attribute (can be done in the BG Designer).

Wow thanks

Tinycloud778 2019-07-11 20:59

It’s a little confusing but I’ll give my best shot

Hey Timo, a little question, how do you turn pixel measurements into positions??

Timo 2019-07-12 07:18

You mean this?

Check this :)
I stored the mask BG in #4, so you can use the default BG completely for the caves.

I already like this quite a lot. It gives a good feeling about discovering places.

I was trying to aim for that

You have lots of talent, I always enjoy your artistic eye :)

Nice updates :)

Thanks Was8Bit

I voted on :)

I uploaded LowRes Galaxy 2 to, I wanted to test embedding, so you can play directly there. It works, but I want to improve some things.

Could you add the "lowres-nx" tag to your games?

Cool Timo
