Ok; enough with the expositional stuff already… today we’re going to make an actual, playable, (hopefully) enjoyable mini-game.
It’s called ‘Meteor Shower’, and it’s pretty simple. You run around a platform as bombs fall from the sky at an ever increasing rate. The last team/player alive wins.
Here’s a video of me testing it:
To play, simply download the following file and stick it in BombSquad’s user-scripts dir*. You can then launch BombSquad, create a new teams or free-for-all playlist, and you should be able to add a ‘Meteor Shower’ game to it.
*If you’re on OUYA, your user-scripts dir is /sdcard/BombSquad. On Mac you can run bsUtils.showUserScripts() to easily get to it. (see modding guide 3 for more info)
..And that’s it… To see what’s going on, just open the file and take a look at the code. I’ve commented it so you should be able to follow along. If you’re brave, take a stab at modifying it; see if you can change where or when the bombs fall, or change it to use a different map. Good luck!
