At the end of Day 4, I am almost finished with the plane combat mode for J.A.M.E.S., my gift project. I finished everything on my list today except the fist graphics. The game is really coming along. I am feeling confident I can finish it and publish it to the app store before December 24th. The controls seem quite good and I intend to have my nephews play-test the game this weekend. After the play-test I will probably have additional tweaking to do. Right now I just plan to finish the graphics for the plane mode and do some tweaking tomorrow. I still need to create graphics for the head which is important since it doubles as the health meter. I have a friend that is working on it though.
What I did today:
Added bomb graphics
Added bomb explosion
Goals for December 7th:
Create fist graphics
Limit arms so they cannot move off of the screen or to opposite side
Create a system for increasing enemy spawn rates over time.
I may start on a menu screen if I have time
The screen shot shows the new helicopter and hot air balloon graphics.
