Presentation Transcript

Backgrounds
Backgrounds

  • The image that appears in the background (duh!).

  • This might be a horizon, or clouds, trees and rainbows in the distance

  • If you’re playing from a birds eye view, the background would be the floor (eg; WarCraft, Raiden)


Rooms
Rooms

  • The room is the area you play the game in.

  • Think of it like a movie scene – you might have different rooms for different scenes/levels etc.

  • The room will have all the objects etc that make the game.


Objects
Objects

  • Objects are things in the game that interact with each other.

  • An object is the character, the walls, the trees, the gun, the bullets... Anything that the player can interact with.

  • By interact, I mean pick up, collide, destroy, move, talk to, etc..

What you want me do?


Sprites
Sprites

  • Sprites = another word for graphics/animations.

  • They are like clothes for objects.

  • Objects don’t look like anything – until you select a sprite for them.

  • An object can have many sprites: a normal sprite, a explosion sprite, a move left sprite, a move right sprite, an armoured sprite.

  • The object can change sprites depending on what happens in the game.


Sounds
Sounds

  • Just as sprites are images for the object, sounds are voices/noises for them.

  • An object can have many sounds; a sound for running, a sound for dying, a sound for talking..


Events
Events

  • Events are triggers for the object to react/do something.

  • An event could be “on mouse click”, “on keyboard left key pressed”, “on collision with wall”, “on collision with bullet”... Etc.

  • Think of the word “ON” as “WHEN”

  • Events are useless unless you have...


Actions
Actions

  • Actions!

  • These are what the object(s) does when an event happens.

  • An action could be “move 5 pixels to the left”, “change sprite to explosion sprite”, “play sound “oww”, “destroy object wall”, “create object bullet”, “move object bullet 100 pixels right”, “set lives to subtract 1”..

  • An event can have many actions!
