Howdy! I finally played post-Jam v1, and I decided to write all this here rather than PM it.
You might want to add a simple mouse cursor graphic. If a player uses mouse trails (like on a laptop), fullscreen kills the visible cursor. Common Windows issue. Considering its long-standing nature, my guess is they call it a feature. $F^ |
Your controls require a scroll wheel. Not everyone has a scroll wheel (although they certainly are a lot more common these days). I suggest allowing Page Up/Down to do the same work.
Another suggestion: Show a transparent preview of the block-about-to-be-built in the place where it will build.
"You haven't put one of each block type down yet." After this message, the Airship and EMP change into basic block each. I didn't test this with other cities' special block types.
I launched a spy against the great city of Tutorial Level, and my spy soon got hung.
(I can give more detail if you need.)
(Oh, after playing DC, now I wonder if the spy only goes as far as I click to go...)
(Nope, played Tutorial Level again, clicked way over on the enemy side, spy got hung, bouncing back and forth in a small area.)
Did you put a much longer cooldown on the missiles? If so, I like!
I see your own missiles don't directly strike your own city anymore (although the explosions still hurt). Cool, 'kay. This will definitely change my building strategy!
When the lose screen says press Esc to return to main menu, you definitely don't need the "cheap pause screen" dialog to come up right then. $:^ ]
So now, playing London vs. DC, I've lost 2 of 2. $:^ }
Ugh. Once again, my spy got back to HQ and the game crashed.
Erp, sorry, didn't copy the exact error message. Let's see if I can get it again...
(Hm. Game's too difficult now. I can't stay alive long enough to get a spy all the way back.)
(Yeah, trying against different cities, I can't even get spies back, let alone win. For one thing, building during battle is too difficult, as you already know. It's also interesting how you can't build basic blocks in battle but rather only high technology.)
(I do have to keep in mind, though, that time-sensitive mouse-based games tend to be more difficult on a mousepad, which is all I use at the moment.)
I don't know how this happened, but in building mode, I got a basic block appearing behind the EMP.
(I laid down seven basic blocks in the third column from the edge of the screen, then scrolled down through the list and landed on the EMP. After that, when I scrolled up/down, laid various block types, etc., this basic block still stayed behind in that upper-left corner.)
Aaaaand uh I guess just to be safe on the post-bumping since I have like partial credit or something, (Ult and Snail) just wait at least two days before responding after me unless someone else jumps in first? $E^ P
