Kleum, proto-20111019 : camera, ui

New prototype version !

Click here to launch prototype

You need at least java 1.6 installed on your computer, that’s all, Kleum is a java applet, it does not need special security settings, just launch and test !

New things :

  • Camera will move slowly to player location on teleport
  • Small pause when picking up a green diamond and when dying (to avoid bad keystrokes)
  • UI (very basic)
  • Green diamond count, but the level doesn’t end yet

The sound doesn’t work as expected : random crash and crackling sound. I don’t know if it’s Ubuntu (fresh install) or Java, but I can’t continue like that. I’ll give a try to Open AL implementation (which works nicely for Minecraft downloadable version), but even the oracle joal applet demo doesn’t work (security exceptions on Ubuntu and Windows). So I can’t be sure results will be positive.

Items :

  • Green diamond : what you must get in order to finish the level. Useless as of now.
  • Red diamond : bad diamond, will grow the snake
  • Heart : gives you a new life. Useless as of now.
  • Pause : will pause the snake, allowing you to decide peacefully on your next move
  • Size reduction : will reduce snake size
  • Size reduction infinite : will reduce snake size, item does stay on the map, so that you can pick it infinitely
  • Teleport in/out : will teleport player from one teleporter to another

How to use the prototype ?

  • When snake is stopped, press any arrow key to ‘launch’ it in the specified direction
  • When snake is moving, press Left or Right arrow key to move it Left/Right (from snake point of view)
