I spent a few hours this afternoon and created my first Arduboy game, a Hangman clone.
Have a look at it with the ProjectABE online emulator
I have the game play working well, but may come back and polish up a few things later. I am open to any suggestions or critiques.
My TODO list is:
Refine scoring and introduce a saved high score
- Refine the graphics
Add sound effects
- More words? (already have 796)
- Add 2 player mode
My initial thought around scoring is to add a point for every letter match, and subtract a point for every incorrect guess. You would also get 3 lifes to begin with and lose one for every dead hangman and win an extra one back (max of 3 total) for every two wins in a row. Once you lost all your lifes the game would be over and you would have to restart back at zero. But, I may just introduce simple scoring as # won / # lost.
