On-screen battle vs. turn-based combat


(JohnnydCoder) #1

What type of combat do you like on the arduboy?

  • On-screen battle (Legend of Zelda-like combat)
  • Turn-based combat (Arduventure-like combat)
  • Both!

Both are cool and both are possible on the Arduboy! I have realtime combat in Festive Fight. :joy::joy:

Two can play the shameless plug game :P
Dark & Under is the poster-child for turn based combat :P

I don’t think it’s a shameless plug! This is a game forum, so every topic, when we reference something, we should make sure to reference real examples and take pride in the work we’ve done! Dark & Under is a fantastic game that people should check out who are browsing this topic. :wink:

Perhaps, but it’s more fun to pretend it’s a shameless plug :P

Woodscrew bodge its a classic :wink:

Something like D&U could benefit from Pokemon style animations in battle but if it was actual real time battle it would be like playing Doom with a stick.
