G Rekedens from our forums made a great guide for Penguins Arena players : Learn how to be a Pro.
Here an excerpt:
Being hit by a Fish Bomb: You should avoid Fish Bombs at all costs, but if you happened to get launched up into the air, use these tips to land safely back on the ground if possible.
- Fly away from the water. If your thrown towards the water, press the S (or what ever key you choose for backwards) to start flying away from the water. Do the same for what ever direction your going.
- If the bomb has not quite gone off yet, and you know there’s no time you escape, brace yourself. If you are going to get thrown forward, hold down S to start going backwards and minimize the force.
- Never run away while close to a bomb. You won’t make it. If an opponent places a bomb by your feet, running away will only increase your danger. Once the bomb goes off, you’ll be going so fast that there is no hope to fly back to land, and you’ll beat eaten by sharks!
This guide will help new players but we’re pretty sure it will also be very helpfull to veterans! Thank you Rekedens!
Last week GarageGames published an interview of us.
What was your development process like?
Penguins Arena was born during a Game in a Day session (the subject was “impalement”). Penguins Arena’s gameplay really hasn’t changed much since the early prototype…we just replaced the sticks with snowballs! Some months later we worked on a second prototype, and we were so happy with the results, we decided to make a full game out of it.
We like to use an iterative process because it’s probably the most comfortable one for a young team. The problem with this process is: when are you supposed to stop working on a feature, or even on the game itself? Nobody is going to tell you when enough is enough, and more features don’t necessary mean more fun.
Many thanks to Deborah for her support and to GarageGames for making awesome Game Engines!
