I did not get nearly as much done on this as I wanted to. This is because Flash and Flixel apparently both hate me, and would not cooperate when I tried to do a test run Flash comic page, or tweak enemy behavior a little bit. So the game has one level less and much less nice beginning/ending art as I wanted it to at this point.
Still, it’s a thing. It works.
Arrow keys to move. Up jumps, down hits the brakes. Space attacks. Z checks a message if your phone is buzzing. X dismisses the message. You may get info from checking your phone that will affect where you go, but you will also be distracted by it.
Space/Mouse to go through intro and outro sequences. R restarts a level if you’ve died, or the game if you’ve won.
(Summary of things I wanted but didn’t get: Wanted to do the intro comic in Flash, since allegedly Flixel can embed other SWFs. Also wanted there to be similar outro comics, and color and suchlike on them, but I took too long trying to make Flash not be my enemy. Definitely going to revisit that, even though it’s too late to present those things. Currently the intro jumps around a comic but not as nicely as Flash would, one of the outros uses the ingame speechbubble system, and one is an image.
The other thing that’s missing is that the robots are supposed to turn around when they hit things which should be INCREDIBLY EASY but then Flixel deprecated half its useful functions and I spent too much of yesterday trying to make that work. It’s not super integral, it just makes the cafeteria level a little weird.
Oh and sound. Sigh.)
