I'm done!

Wow, it's been a wild ride, but it's finished. May I present: 

Maneuver your hovercraft around to complete tasks, and try to get the highest score you can!

Menus

All right, this is starting to look like a game! I have implemented menus, difficulty, and a scoring system. On top of that, the game actually ends! Next, I'll work on making the game scalable, so you can make the window bigger, then add sounds and touch-up transitions.


I'm thinking of adding context to my game with a cutscene, but that'll come later.

Goals

The hovercraft can now complete tasks by hovering over a task marker until the progress bar fills up.


Next up: Keeping track of what's on the hovercraft.


Note: Due to complicated reasons, my screenshots will consist of me taking pictures of my screen with my phone.

Gameplay

Because I have the time, I'll write a brief explanation of how the game will work, and how I came up with the idea.


TL;DR: I want to do something other than Cops Shoot Bad Guys, so you fly around and complete tasks.


Basic gameplay:

You control a hovercraft from a top-down view. Tasks will be randomly generated, then displayed as "pings" on your view and mini-map. Once you reach a ping, you will have to remain at the ping for an amount of time based on the task. A next step might be required, like transporting a wounded officer you picked up to the hospital. The challenge comes from having multiple tasks that require your attention and a limited time to complete them.


Origin:

I wanted to make a police game that wasn't just a shoot 'em up. Because police do a lot, with shooting crooks being only a small amount of their job. I had been toying with the idea of a top-down flying game for a while and realized within two minutes of seeing the theme that these ideas could work together.
