    Cool Game almost done

    The game I'm trying to finish is called ballwar and what I have programmed so far looks fine to me for being my first game in C (it has taken me 3 days).

    It is the new version of the one I posted previously in a thread called "Game test" which was only a sketch, now it is much more elaborated although it isnt finished yet for I have to do a couple of things(that you dont have to shoot right in the middle of the circle, for example).

    For me it is a challenge and now I feel much more confident with C.
    Every feature I have wanted to add has given me many headaches but in the end I have manged to add it, which makes me feel great.


    Download it and e-mail me with your opinions or ideas on how to turn it more game-like (i posted a message called "graphics.h" where I asked how to put text in graphic mode but noone replied so I dont know to to put a scoreboard on the game).

    If 'here' is pronounced as 'hear', why 'there' isnt pronounced as 'dear'??

    firstly add a little more graphics instead of an oval as yourself and an oval to shoot at, make like lvls or something, also you should make the shooting ball move around a little so its harder, its very hard to hit the ball because you have to hit in the exact centre, you could make it so that it will need a couple of hits to destroy the ball if you hit further from the centre and 1 hit in centre, also the ball that shoots should move a little faster, it starts off too slowly. also you could make the lazer or whatever you shoot move a little slower so you can see it when you shoot, you could make better controls too the O and P shoot i dont like too much you could make em use the keypad numbers (not arrows) to shoot like 4 shoots left 6 shoots right 8 up 2 down and diagnols etc. lastly i dont know how to use graphics.h but i'm quite sure its puts("TEXT"); dont quote my on that. good game overall for your first graphics

    Red_Baron you ask for too much!! Reading your post was overwhelming, why didnt you ask me to make Quake4?? I think that would be easier

    Anyway, I still have to learn a lot and maybe try to enhance the game as you have said.
