My Filco has been busy *shameless self promotion*
« on: Thu, 04 December 2008, 18:55:12 »
The project I have been working on (http://www.altitudegame.com/) for the past year and a half is getting close to being complete.

It's a really fun (yes im biased) flying game that runs on MAC, LINUX and windows. Our current beta tester base is very limited in the mac and linux users so I would love it if any of you mac/linux people checked it out.  Even if you don't enjoy games I implore you to give it a shot (it's a tiny 50mb download) and most people get at least an hour of enjoyment out of it ;).  The game runs on anything so dont worry about your hardware specs.

Thanks for your time, opinions and (hopefully no bug reports)

Karl

Looks like a modernized version of Sopwith. I'm there. (With the Windows version - my Mac barely runs at all, and my Linux box doesn't have X installed.)

Nice game graphics, runs flawlessly on my MacBook with OS X 10.5.5., but i didn't like the steering behavior at all.

glad it worked.

what kind of control scheme would feel intuitive to you?  Lots of new people have problems with the controls at first but outside of using a game pad with an analog stick i cant think of how to improve it. Note: game pads with analog sticks aren't sported yet... game pads work but are treated as digital input instead of analog ATM.

Perhaps I played too much R-Type on the C64, but left and right for up and down is hard to get used too. I assume it should be the pitch from the perspective of the pilot, but I personally just didn't like it.
Would it work with my Competition Pro Joystick?

Suggestion for the tutorial: Add in a bit on how to play the team games.

I've seen some low-level players that didn't have a clue what they were doing on team games.

I'll take a look at it. Thanks.

Also I definitely want to beef up the tutorial but I hate the risk of making it too long and boring.

So make each section skipable.

And, that'd be a good idea as it is - I'd like a mode where you could skip straight to the shooting bots part, if you just want to get some quick XP.
