Splodey Boats 2000 is a port of Splodey Boats, a game I wrote back in 2014 for Ludum Dare. There were two main reasons I went with a port instead of a new game:
- I wanted to see how much effort was involved in using my game framework
- Mini Shinobi was really, really hard to make and I wanted something less taxing
I'm a bit on the fence about the finished product. It wasn't as much effort to make as Mini Shinobi, but it's also quite half-baked and missing some polish. It's also missing features from the original, such as powerups and the online score table. I'd like to get them added in a future update, but for now it seemed better to just get something out the door.
That sounds quite negative, but I did manage to port things relatively easily. There were some bumps along the way, but overall it's pretty close to the Flixel version.
