The current game can be found here.
What I accomplished on Logic Lights in April, and what I am currently thinking of working on:
- Add an in-game help screen describing the rules of the game.
- Add a tip jar or donation button.
- Add options menu.
- Quality factors for wins for minimizing the number of elements in the program.
- Change wire shape:
- Move the vertical kink in the wire to allow player to remove overlaps.
- Draw gap at wire overlaps to clarify the direction of the wires.
- Additional structure so that wires will not draw over elements when the input is to the left of the output.
- Allow many, many kinks in wires so player can create arbitrary wire paths.
- Allow wire inputs to connect to random point in the middle of another wire.
- Allow arbitrarily large puzzles with unlocks for larger puzzles based on earlier puzzles.
- Randomization of level labels for each user so that truth table isn't predictable from level number.
- Save game state when players close the game in the middle of play.
- Graphics changes:
- Draw a convincing trash can.
- Make the ground switch direction when connected to an input.
- Remove the "1 switch" string on the level switch, replace with graphical representation.
- Android Version (includes: learn Java, etc.)
- M ac Version (need a Mac to use Py2App)
- Saw error in wiring when there are many elements, but not sure where. Need to figure out how to recreate and then fix it.
- Puzzles complete only if terminals wired.
- Created ground.
- Allow user to choose color scheme.
- Can be done from code.
- Refactor screen system into an object-oriented style.
- Set up GitHub account and uploaded code.
From To Dos:
- Put up downloadable .zip file.
- Fade in the win notification.
- Added confetti on win screen.
- Allows automatic wiring of overlapping terminals.
- Deletes existing wires when:
- players make both ends connect to the same terminal.
- when connected element is placed is removed from play.
- Deletes logic elements when they are returned to their factories.
- Marks game as tried when game is closed while in progress.
- Made the or-tile look a little nicer.
- Labelled the level boxes so that it's clear that 1 means 1 switch.
- Removed extraneous code from the Video Game Physics boilerplate.
- Included 340 procedurally-generated puzzles
- Uses three (3) logic gates -- and, or, and not
- Puzzles with up to four (4) switches (see above)
- Wires that connect elements
- Included trash can to remove excess elements.
- Multiple users / logins on one device
- Remembers puzzle either won or just tried.
