Doomed Looters (#7DRL) – mobile porting

Ok, 7DRL 2016 is closed, so there’s no time for updates, but that doesn’t mean I can keep on working of this game (outside of the competition, I mean). First thing to add is mobile porting. I’ve added a virtual pad, taken from Down There assets, and yup, in less than one hour I have Doomed Looters running on my old iPhone 4. I also shipped main source code to Andrea Capitani, and he did the same magic to build an Android APK.

That’s good? Almost, but not. UI has too small buttons in dialogs, and there are few things to add to make the game usable in a correct way on a mobile device. We want also to add remote Leaderboard and Achievements (this idea was there from the start, of course). And, well, we got an unexpected framerate problem – dued to the global shadow effect I guess. Nothing I cannot solve, but, well, I need to do that. It’s a small game, it should run fine on every device.
And, well, it’s time also to add some sound FX (I was able to “mount” just a soundtrack) so to have something more complete, to hit stores.
If we don’t get lost with other things I guess Android version should be on Google Play within the week (iOS time, well, it depends on Apple decision, as it’s by design)
