I have an issue so I don't konw if I'll can do something.  As I've said here, can't compile my engine after updating Xubuntu.  I'll try to reinstall and see what happens.

I'm in! I will use my Tilengine wrapper to do things up!

Nice, where I can find that to take a look?

@lainz: Now it's different story, good job :)

Thanks, anyone can use it for the contest if want to.

I think I will keep updating this, now it works better thanks to "vsync".

Uh, ok. Hope you can fix that!

In the meantime, maybe try allegrojs with Pas2JS?

Edit: My game is now getting into a platformer!

Edit2: music is not working on chtome due to autoplay policy, maybe this game needs a menu with a button 'start' or something, so user interaction is first triggered and then music will work.

My game (https://lainz.github.io/AllegroPas2JS-Demo-Game/index.html) works fine on an i7 4th gen, but slowly on an i5 2nd gen... this shows the limitations of using Canvas2D, blitting a few 2d images is slower than using WebGL. I can run some webgl games with no problems on that i5.

Need to try something different, maybe go all Native and forget Pas2js for now.

Any news with your games?

The link only shows a blank white page if opened using Pale Moon. But it runs correctly if opened using Firefox.

The performance seems okay when running on my Core2 Quad cpu + NVidia 9600 GT. But I can hear my cpu fan was crying to spin at the maximum speed. This simple game is too cpu intensive, I guess it does not use graphics hardware for rendering. My Linux computer has NVidia driver installed properly.

Also I noticed, when jumping the sprite will become a ball. Is it a bug?

I've just checked my Pale Moon. No Script is not installed. It only has User Agent Switcher installed.

I think I'm in again, as I've fixed the compilation problems (I think it was a ".so hell").

I'm commiting the game sources in to the MinGRo SourceForge project as it will be the demonstration game.  Any problem whith it?

Yes is just canvas2d game, allegrojs is not webgl. I just tested it on chrome, edge, Firefox , safari.

No, it's not a bug is my buggy Sprite of jumping only  :D

Ñuño no problem at all.

No submissions yet... The problem as i see it is lack of good game arts. I doubt any of us have the drawing skills necessary  ::)  Effects i can always draw but never a humanoid. Just have to search harder i guess.

Yes, not all are graphic designers or musicians as hobby. We can't find someone like the creator of Cave Story, but well it take to him 5 years not the contest time  :)

No problem at all, we can make a different contest if no one submits a game to this one. A more general game contest like the previous one, but with the rule of uploading to a git repo, else I think the code gets lost storing it on 'uploading sites'.

IIRC, there are webs out there choked full of *free* and nice tile graphics for platformers. What I don't remember is exactly where it is. :-[

ETA:

Just googled for "free game graphics": HasGraphics and OpenGameArt are just two of the gazillion sites out there. ;D

Maybe you're thinking on https://opengameart.org

Hmm... I have an old freeware game "Life Lab" published in:

Artificial Life: Explorer's Kit (1993)

https://www.amazon.com/Artificial-Life-Explorers-Software-Included/dp/0672303019

Windows 3.1 probably, and coded in C++. I doubt the software included in that book runs anymore. This contest might give me impetus to dust off that old code and rewrite it in a modern language. ;) Would that be eligible?

At this time with all the ammount of submissions even my slow canvas2D game can be elegible  :D

Now seriously yes, a port is ok too.
