Cubuesque project

Hi guys !

here is my game called “Cubuesque”, hosted on itch.io : Cubuesque by Mokauno

Simple and fun, this new game concept could make you addicted.
An average game takes 5 or 10 minutes.
Rotate the cube with the arrow keys of your keyboard.
To make a great score, you will need speed, luck and concentration.
You can rapidly earn points with combos.
The game is really easy on first levels, but become insane on next levels.
When the green bar is empty, the game is over.

At the time I publish this game, I can reach level 8. Can you beat me ?

Have fun, please share with your friends, and if the game please you, I will add content in the future.

Any suggestion or remark is welcome.

I made the entire game with Armory 3D & Blender.

Thanks,

Mokauno.

Hi, Armory guys !
I hope some of you like my game.

Please tell me if I should write something about my experience with Armory to create this game.

I could explain at what points Armory helped me, what worked, what didn’t work, some tips, and what could be improved to ease that sort of creation.

Thanks,
Mokauno

Hi, thats a nice game, pretty good idea :slight_smile:

A few things I noticed:

  • Do you use images for the buttons with the text on it? It doesn’t look that sharp compared to the game title
  • An ingame explanation of the buttons would be helpful if somebody doesn’t read the description on itch.io

But it makes a lot of fun to play that, as I said I really like the concept behind it.

That would be great, maybe there are some things we can improve with Armory (even without too much work probably).

Also: what about a page in the Armory wiki dedicated to games made with Armory? Kha has a page like that:https://github.com/Kode/Kha/wiki/Games-Built-With-Kha

Thanks,

as the game is finished, I’m really interested in sharing my experience. The laziest way would be to share the project files, but I think it would not be enough.

Armory Engine gave me the tool I dreamed to make a game. I loved the logic nodes, and the way it is integrated in blender. It was really better than the old Blender Game Engine.
Armory is a great tool, but it was also painful to achieve a working game.
Please feel free to ask questions about how I made things, I’ll be happy to answer. By the way, I can publish the project files if you want. Feel free also to ask me if you think this game game could be a part of Armory documentation as an example.

to @timodriaan :

  • images were used to make buttons and game title, image button are just surely not at good resolution, so they may appear blurry. Canvas could have been used, but in my opinion, it’s too limited.
  • explanation ? Do you mean I need to say “use your keyboard arrows” ingame ? Surely. Didn’t do it because I didn’t know if the game was only playable on PC. I still hope I can offer gamepad or touch controls for mobile devices.

Thanks again to the whole community, QuantumCoderQC, M_Ent8h, Naxela, Hikibob and others. I almost time got an answer when I asked.

And that’s exactly what I’m interested in :smiley: What are the challenges you’ve had making this game? Maybe there is something that can be easily improved.

Like that, yes. It could be displayed either on a screen that’s accessible via the menu or before the game starts. You could display an image of the arrow keys with a text saying “Rotate the cube using the arrow keys” or something like that. Not sure though how you would handle that with mobile, if you use Haxe you can check to which target the game is exported to.

It definitely could be. Is it ok for you if I create such a page in the wiki tomorrow with a screenshot from your game and a link to itch io and this forum entry? You can always edit that of course, GitHub wikis can be edited by everyone.

There are some other games that could fit there but I don’t know the authors so if somebody knows who created “Offroad Mania” for example that would be great. Of course it is allowed to just write about that game but I don’t know if I can paste a screenshot of that. There are more games (smxhams game jam entry for example) and there also is a mobile game made with Armory, maybe I find the author of it with a discord search.

I don’t know well GitHub, but yes, I’m OK for a wiki page.

There it is: https://github.com/armory3d/armory/wiki/Games-made-with-Armory
