I’ve spent the better part of the day trying various solutionsÂ to best implement the gyroscope control scheme in RunawayJRider…
I’ve had a few experiences with various gyroscopes throughout the years but steering….. hmmmm that’s a tricky one. At least not from the onset… actually let me rephrase… my first instinct was the eventual solution. Getting the forces applied on the device and using them to increment/decrement an angle value… but that seemed too easy.Continue Reading "When In Gyroscope Accelerate"
More Control SchemesÂ Options
We finally enabled multiple control schemes!
Of the three most requested control schemes by our players are:
- Arrows (casual mode),
- Gamepad(hardcore mode)
- Gyroscope(casual mode)
RunawayJRider is ever evolving and this iteration we’re taking it to a more expansive territory. First thing in order is to increase the play area, namely width of the lanes. The task was supposed to be manual in nature, but as a good lazy programmer, I decided to tag the elements furthest from the center as “boundary” which are dynamically distanced through a variable. This has the benefit of dynamically controlling the play area. We use a dictionary type variable on objects so we can scale as per requirements without too much over engineering.Continue Reading "Increased Levels and Gameplay Experimentation"

RunawayJRider Gameplay Adds
The game has taken a huge improvement boost after hiring some art consultants and other “product polishers” 🙂
That being said, there’s much more work to be done in terms of improving gameplay! More game mechanics and making sure they’re balanced in order to keep the dopamine flow at an optimum level 😉Continue Reading "Back To Blogging and C# Mono Runtime Engine Integration"
