Here's the funny thing. While exploring everywhere, learning how to write network games, finally learning it...I dumped the idea?!!!?
Why? Because I noticed the kids creating game levels on their own! Impressive, but only possible if the IDE is simple enough...and guess what...the Mac world has such an IDE, the GameSalad. Impressed the xxxx out of me watching the children get creative and having fun too! They just keep wanting to create their own levels and laughing at each other for struggling at their creations!
Hm...am I encouraging sadistic behaviour? I better monitor this and control a bit.
Anyway, here's their favourite creation at the moment, shooting at enemies who really shoot back...albeit with bullets that seem to fly crazily. Nevertheless fun to watch the bullets zip around the screen while you shoot at them and at the enemies at the same time. 15 levels already created, with a hidden bonus level too. Try it out.
