Hello, this is my first full game that I made, as I am very new to Alice, and I am really proud of it. It is a tank game, where the [B]arrow keys[/B] control the tank, and you press the [B]Space Bar[/B] to shoot.

You can also move the turret up, down, and side to side with the [B]ASDW[/B] letters, and also fire a machine gun in bursts of 3 bullets with [B]F[/B]. By [B]clicking the tank body[/B] or pressing [B]Enter[/B], it puts you into a fixed view of the tank from the back. If you want a more precise shooting view, you can also [B]click on the turret[/B] for a precise shot. I have also added invisibility for fun by pressing [B]I[/B], and then back into visible mode by pressing [B]V[/B].

You can shoot at the people, but my proudest part (and the part that took the longest) is shooting down a helicopter, which I have flying above in the air.

I hope you like this game I made, and please even add stuff in or fix something if you want to. I hope you enjoy it :)! Remember though, this is only my first full project. Tell me if you like it!

[B]CLICK ON THE TANK BODY OR THE TURRET FOR DIFFERENT CAMERA ANGLES![/B] The default camera angle is a fixed one, so click on the tank itself for a better one.

[I]Note: When you open up the world, there will be an error message, but I assure you the game will still work. The error was only because I tried to import a .wav sound file that was not compatible with Alice.[/I]

that was a great game keep it up

Nice game i love the helicopter crash! Keep it up

Thank you for your comments! If you want, just tell me if, and what, I should add into this. I was thinking along the lines of a nuke strike, that kills everyone (except the tank) and blows up the helicopter.

Also, maybe making the death of the people a little better, so they do not just keep rotating 90 degrees whenever you shoot near them. I think I could fix this...

And please, tell me what you think!

Dameria 10-07-2009 04:32 PM

Please try my game x2495iiii and dubastot, I would like to hear what you have to say about it! Please tell me also what I have to improve?

x2495iiii 10-08-2009 10:27 PM

Checking it out now.

Alrighty, I definitely liked the helicopter crash, that was very well animated (though you should have the smoke animations turn to face the camera as the appear, to avoid looking paper-like).

The shooting mechanism was good as well, though I noticed that the guys could "Come back from the dead" in a way if you shot them four times or ran over them and sat there for awhile.

Otherwise, very nice, keep it up!

You can get rid of the sound file that does not work by selecting the object that you told to make the sound. go to properties then click sounds, and delete the sound file that dos not work and teh error will away

jediaction 11-26-2009 02:10 PM

Great job on the helicopter and the runing over and shooting the people. But if you shoot the guys again, they pop back up

Ok, I fixed the bug where the guys keep comming back up once you shoot them, now they only die once. I also fixed the smoke when the helicopter crashes. It has come at a price though, its now over 19mb large. If you can, please show me how I can fix the error in the beginning.

Tell me what you think of it, I made this game a few months ago I think.

[i]Its a very important part of the gameplay experience that some people do not do[/i] :)

Very nice. I had a hard time shooting down the heilcopter (darn tiny bulets!), but it was worth it to see the improved crash animation.

I got rid of the error message by eliminating all of the sounds but the three heard in the game (tankBoom, machineGun4, and helicopterCrash). This means that one or more of your sound files is in a format that Alice doesn't recognize, or has some different code or format to it (I noticed it said it expected "magic string RIFF, got flaC"). Not sure what that means, but it probably has something to do with unrecognized formats.

Just want to remind everyone that has played this game that the first camera view is a fixed view, and keeping it like that will ruin your gameplay experience, there are other camera views.

Click on the [B]cannon [/B]for a precise shot, and click on the [B]tank body[/B] or press [B]Enter [/B]for a over-the-tank view.
The other instructions are on the first post if you want to see them.

[i]Here is the download again just so you do not have to go back to the first page to download it[/i]

Holy cow! I love the helicopter crash!
The explosion with the fire and all that. That was really cute! I mean... badass!
Him spinning down to his death. The twitching of the propellers...
very nice touches...

Dameria 02-24-2010 09:21 PM

:D Thanks, this was actually my first game and I did not know a lot about some techniques I know now that could have saved a lot of space. (19 MB wow!)

And also the twitching is actually a glitch that happens to help with the realty of the game :rolleyes:. Back then I did not know how to make the blades stop spinning, so I just made them spin the same direction backwards, and thats how the twitching happened lol

jediaction 02-25-2010 08:26 AM

I liked it a lot. Mabye for hero's mission 2, if i make mission 2 this year will have a realistic explosion

Lambda 03-08-2010 02:41 AM

lol, the game was sooo excellent. Make a sequel!

jediaction 03-08-2010 08:45 AM

It wasnt really a game

Dameria 03-08-2010 02:29 PM

Yea this was just more like my first attempt at making a shooting game, it doesn't really have a plot or storyline, just a bunch of methods. Thanks for liking it though, it means a lot :D

jediaction 03-08-2010 08:29 PM

Ok, if everyone is talking about the same game. I saw this as a simple fire and hit and everything crashes. If i missed something, I might of played the old version, everyoen is saying hwo this is a cool game and such?! IM confused, ill test it again later

Furyownage 05-16-2010 11:52 PM

good job i really like it. here are some ideas

make it so the helicopter movies in a circle as to make it more challenging to shoot. this is fairly easy to do with a simple method where you have move forward commands mixed with turn at speed commands on a loop. you have to be careful with that though.1 thing that can happen is after crash it keeps moving in a circle, so you will want to put a command to stop that. but if you try to do that it might want to just ignore the crash routine and dive through the ground.

but overall a good job and im impressed :)

Dameria 05-17-2010 03:28 PM

There is a lot of stuff that I could add to this game, but this was back when I didn't even use variables in the games I made. Everything I made was very simple and not very well programmed.

I am not going to fix this game, I am going to leave it as it is because it was the first game that I had every published here on the forums, and even though I can make it better, I want to leave it like this to show how far my programming skills have improved.
