Express Yourself Reading I like to read books! Hobbies Awesome game! I love the interface and design that was put into this. And it all runs so smoothly! It's also very challenging - it has taken me at least 20 or so attempts to get all three of the orange circles in the levels I've completed so far (and I'm not even done world one!) MathPRG MathPRG Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself Reading I like to read books! Hobbies Well, I made it all the way to World 5 Level 8... and I got stuck there! That's a tough one. The hardest part in my opinion is getting to the switch which toggles the pink blocks in the way. I didn't focus as much on the orange circle achievement things to this point, maybe I'll go back for them.

Achievements Scholar Received for knowing a great deal about programming topics Achievements I'm still pretty sure it was just the word "thrust" People have made ports of many different games without them being taken down. Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements They actually messaged me back and told me that It was being taken down because of it's similarities to the 1986 game Thrust. But, I still think that the two games have few similarities. 12Me21 12Me21 Admin Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community!

Express Yourself ^debatable but I guess its better then getting taken down^ snail_ snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! I'm curious, why is there a loading screen when you reset the level? Surely you wouldn't need all that loading time to reset all the entities etc. but what do I know. Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements Since I was kind of in a rush to complete the game during the contest, I didn't want to figure out how to reset the pixels and the start location during each reset. Instead, I just had the game clear all the data and reload the map entirely. Furthermore, the new wall shading feature I added at the end of the contest only made the loading time even slower. Thanks for reminding me of this though. I'll try to fix it soon. snail_ snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! Not a bad approach in a rush, it managed to get your game functional in time :) Also, the funky-looking background. Do you have one saved on the GRP or do you generate a new copy every time? Looks to me like it's algorithmically drawn. Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements It's saved on the GRP. I wrote a simple terrain generation program and rendered the image there. In the game itself, I used a repeating background layer. snail_ snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble.

Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements I now know why the game keeps getting taken down. It's because it's similar to the 1986 game called Thrust- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrust_(video_game). I've never heard of the game, but I plan on changing the name to "propulsion" or something similar. Gale_Storm Gale_Storm Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself That's the reason, huh? They actually got back to you and told you that? Well, hopefully things will work out. Good luck. Simeon Simeon Scholar Received for knowing a great deal about programming topics Achievements Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies It's not similar at all You can fly a triangle around... that's about all that's similar And you shouldn't have to change the entire game name just because of that... I call BS, SmileBOOM probably just got bored. They'd better not take down this encrypted version The encryption design is really nice by the way Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements Honestly, I'm happy that my game won't get denied anymore. Also, They were somehow able to take down the encrypted version but not one of my earlier versions..? Copyright is weird... Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements I took a few hours off of Ramps and wrote some simple encryption software. I'll update the key once I test it out! Simeon Simeon Scholar Received for knowing a great deal about programming topics Achievements Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies I finally beat the game And it is safe to conclude It is basically impossible to get every yellow dot unless if you are an extremely hardcore, world champion gamer I think this game should get more cutscenes, atleast one for the end This game is fantastic The prize is 100% worth beating the game for Really really really fun! Picy3 Picy3 Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Star Wars Is Awesome! I love Star Wars!

Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements I'm glad you both enjoyed the game. I've collected all of the pixels multiple times so... I guess that makes me "an extremely hardcore, world champion gamer". I'm also glad you enjoyed the prize. It took forever to get those HD graphics to work. HD as in Horrible Definition. :) Gale_Storm Gale_Storm Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself This is fantastic. I like all of the added details. The one thing that still confuses me...why does the boost consume health upon use? Isn't the potential danger of running into a ceiling enough of a hazard? I personally don't find much use for it as it currently is, especially since there is now a "complete the level without taking damage" achievement. My two cents. Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements I didn't change anything. The only reason I updated the key was because the key got rejected again... Anyway, the bar represents your remaining energy. The game is meant to be challenging so I made boosting be a high risk that could potentially earn the player the time badge for the stage.

Hobbies This has to be the best game on SmileBASIC Everything runs so smoothly And the game makes very good use of 3D The particle effects are really nicely designed I never found a use for the down button, using the boost, it would be cool if it has a more useful function, like picking up an object, or dropping a bomb, or hovering to let the player relax a bit Consider making the game save each level, well, depending on where you're going with this The levels get completed pretty fast, you you should make a lot of levels, introducing new features occasionally Very fun game, here's your good rating, I hope the rest of SmileBASIC discovers this game Nathaniel Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest!

  2. Pausing to restart or exit the level.
  3. A saving feature.
  4. Making 45 unique levels in total. Or more depending if I get to the bonus world or not.
  5. New obstacles per world.
