Diary Entries

First Day Report

I had a design. I think it before the challenge start, but I changed a bit. To make it more simple.

Today the programming started slowly. Now I have a debug console for the game, and a simple player sprite.

Garfio can die

Today I get a level structure. The level data is inside a png, so it's easy to use GIMP as a level editor.

Also the player can die if he walk outside the main road.

Tomorrow I want to add shooting (the string thing) and two or three gameplay elements (barriers, jump points and level-exit tile)


First String Thing

Garfio can shot string things! Tomorrow I'll gameplay elements to hook the string in.

Near the end

Today I added string bridges to cross over magma and blocks than can be pulled with the hook.

Tomorrow I'll add the level-exit tile and several levels and the life/string counters. And I a have time, I'll add some monster. And, That's all. I 'll have the last day for polish, music and put on a menu screen.

Final Entry of "Hook the Shoot"

Hook the Shoot is done.

Well. I got it. I finalize the game. And it has almost all the thinks than I imagine the first day. (well, all of them but the bats)

Today I worked on sound effects and, several levels. The final game has 5 levels, with the first ones used as tutorials. Also the screens between levels are simple but pretty good.
