Title: [NDS GAME] Glider
Post by: HtheB on August 20, 2006, 08:38:49 PM
Hi All! :)

This is my entry for the Compo.

The game is called Glider. It's a 3D glider simulator, which you can fly trough the air.

WARNING!
This game is not for people that get's dizzy from high distance!
::sm-04::

(just kidding) ;D

Controls:
The controls is very simple. Just use your stylus to move your glider.  ::sm-18.gif::

Only Fly mode works at the moment (training is the same as fly)
and the help menu :)

Well, let's try and play before saying it is the best one.
I'm remember a starfighter game who won the first compo and who was not so much funny :/
So, let's try before saying such thing

Well i've tried this and it just feels so damn slick. Will you be adding some sort of gameplay before the competition end though? Even just a few rings to fly through would be nice :)

It is gorgeous though  ;)

look nice, is there any emu compatible with your game ?
dualis, ideas and desmume seems to hang with it ....

Post by: HtheB on August 21, 2006, 01:07:23 AM
@retrohead: Yes.. there will be (later) such thing :)
and.. we even are planning to make a "shooting" flight game.

still WIP  ^_^

@alekmaul: I'm sorry about that.. :( there is no emulator that can handle it :(

Real hardware only :(

Very good! There is something quite enjoyable about this demo.
PLEASE give it some more work!

Could you PLEASE  make an Modelplane Flight simulator aswell ? With an Remote Control for the plane on the bottom I would love to see such a thing. I thought this right after I saw your Plane game.

It's pretty cool and the graphics remind me somehow of Computergames...

I hope you can think about my Suggestion:

I think the concept is very cool, but obviously the game still needs a lot of work. For instance, ignoring the lack of actual gameplay, I find it annoying that the ground textures are extremely low-res and blocky. Is this a technical limitation, or could it be solved by just using higher resolution textures?
Title: Re: [NDS GAME] Glider

well, good work, but not really a game  ::sm-01::

Post by: davr on August 22, 2006, 02:52:06 AM
Very neat, but as comments above, needs some gameplay. But you have the foundations of something great here.

PS: I keep flying and flying but never get anywhere :P

Technically impressive.  Lensflair, translucent windows, uberpixel island, and fluffy clouds, sounds like heaven.

We can't put a bigger texture because of DS limitations. Only solution would be to tile a texture over the ground.

Okay, it's time for some updates regarding Glider...

One of the updates is about the style of the game, as which we thought and will make Glider a Flighting Shooter.
The other update regards that we already began making some progress making new models for the game, like "F-16".

On another place, stay with the image regarding the "F-16" for the game.   ;)

This looks more like it.  ;)

As a request, can you make it like an arcade game rather than simulator with perhaps training missions and bonus levels where you have to do totally unrealistic things. Games are supposed to be fun not serious. I don't know what everyone else feels on this but i would love it if you did  :-*

Thanks very much and i look forward to seeing your update  8)

just so you know... : White screens with G6 Lite...  :'(

do you think this can be fixed with the next release?

I can be beta tester for G6 lite if it can help..!! ( malcoolm@tiscali.fr )

really wanted to play it... :-(
Title: Re: [NDS GAME] Glider
Post by: Sektor on September 18, 2006, 03:44:36 AM
It should work on G6.  Did you try all the files?

Glider.nds
Glider.ds.gba
Glider.sc.nds

Glider.nds will probably fail but Glider.ds.gba and Glider.sc.nds should work.  Glider.nds might work with the alternative boot method on the G6 built-in menu.
