Popfly has gone offline ...

Popfly has once again totally impressed me! I was on vacation last week, away from my computer and I had some free time each morning so I decided to check back with popfly and make another game. I made Bomberman (also above)! I made the beginnings of the game rather quickly as popfly's game creator has evolved to beta. All of the visuals were made from existing actors that popfly already has and I tweaked them with popfly's visual editor. They are not the best graphics, but sure beats anything that I would have done from scratch! Also, popfly has a great amount of visuals and sound effects / music to choose from to really customize your game.

The game I created is a mini replication of the original bomberman where a user walks around placing bombs on the ground and tries to blow up the computer. My game consists of the following:

  • Multiple Levels
  • Multiple Lives
  • Multiple Powerups (randomly placed beneath boxes)
  • Score is kept throughout the game with bonuses for picking up powerups, killing the computer with your bomb, beating levels and having lives left once you beat the game!

The whole game took me around 15-20 hours to complete, with plenty of testing! There is one minor bug that I have noticed where the computer can build up enough force and push you through the wall ... then you must commit suicide or hopefully the computer will blow itself up.

Hopefully you enjoy my game and remember to leave feedback so I know how to make future games better!
