libGDX is a Java game development framework that provides a unified API that works across all supported platforms.

The framework provides an environment for rapid prototyping and fast iterations. Instead of deploying to Android/iOS/Javascript after each code change, you can run and debug your game on the desktop, natively. Desktop JVM features like code hotswapping reduce your iteration times considerably.

Libgdx tries not be the "end all, be all" solution. It does not force a specific design on you.

Weekly Wrap-up Highlights #10:

08/16/2016 - 08/28/2016

These past couple of weeks I've been focusing again on polishing and bug fixes. There have been a few visual things changed that I'm going to share today.

Private alpha continues

Our first adventure, "The Gathering", is fully playable now with about 2 hours of game play available (more if you take your time and far less if you really rush it). The boss is now complete and you can now "finish" the adventure upon defeating the boss. There is enough equipment and spells available to take you up to level 12, but current testing seems to land you around level 8 by the time you reach the boss.

New special attack for Bandit

The Bandit in the party started running into the same problem the Archer did. Due to their weapons only ever having a single target option, they always ended up feeling a bit lacking in the damage. To compensate for this I gave the Ice Archer a special attack that did party damage and made it available quite often. Since the Bandit also ended up having this same problem, he now also has a similar attack (although slightly higher level). Here's a quick GIF showing off his new attack: Flurry of Fire Knives!

New optional in East Forest

This week I’ve added in a new optional fight in the forest just outside of town. The first time you come across our little "friends", they may be quite a bit tougher than you, but that shouldn’t stop you from at least trying as you can return later and try again.

If you do beat them (first time, or even later) you do get some nice toys in the chests that are hiding behind them; so it’s worth it!

Here’s my first attempt as a fresh-from-town level 2; it doesn’t go so well…


New item added: Magical Compass!

Should you defeat the optional in the East Forest, one of the items you'll obtain is the Magical Compass. This handy little item allows the player to teleport directly back to their town from any place in the game. Here's a little GIF showing us using it:

I just created a game called Chomp! using LibGdx. I found it a great library and I liked that it was a programmers platform since I am a Java programmer.

My game is now on the Google Play Store. It is about a crocodile that catches food. You control the crocodile with the accelerator.

Wally the Crocodile catches food from all directions and angles.

Three ways to play.

Why the developer is TOME studios and the license is Commercial?
It's being developed by the libgdx guys and the license should be Apache2.
