A little bit of progress on gameplay today. It's quite a simple game, so it didn't take too long to get the basics in place - but it doesn't tie together properly yet.
Anyway, here are a few screengrabs to show where I'm at.

First of all, here is the character sprite integrated into the game and the text box system (for story/tutorial) with an ugly bitmap font (yes, the font needs work before it's legible).

Image


The gameplay is centered on guiding your enchanted lure around the level. All but the last fish needs to be looped before hooking the final fish.

Image


When the ghost fishes are captured it all gets a bit 'don't cross the streams'.

Tomorrow I'll spend some time improving/finalising the visuals.

Getting my level editor ready. Working on the levels will probably be a job for the weekend.

I like your take on fishing! And a level editor too, impressive.

For some reason I can't see your images at all. When I try to go to your website it says Connection refused.

I was intending to submit my game today, but haven't managed to get some time on my computer since Sunday. The game is about 95% done (if a little rough around the edges) so I'll have to submit tomorrow in my lunch break.

Sorry - not sure what's going on here, will look into it once the game is done.

Finally! A build of my game is available to play, here:
http://www.daviddurhamgames.com/games/phantomfishing/

I'll look a getting a fullscreen Windows build done ASAP too.
I didn't manage to do everything I wanted to, and there are only 10 levels, but I'm reasonably happy with this.

That was fun. Gets challenging fast, though. Once there were three fish I started having trouble.

Definitely recommend others give this one a try.
