Actually I'm glad you told me this ! Your advice allowed me to free about 1500 bytes I still don't know if this will be enough to make a boss, I'd like to add sound effects and maybe some sort of scenario before, but there's probably more room for optimizationMyndale wrote:I hope you don't mind but I ran it on your Starships elf to look for any smoking guns and there are a few in there, notably the updatePerso function which is 3106 bytes long and contains multiple calls to drawPixel
Thanks ! I just updated the game files to add more enemies and make the difficulty curve softer but yeah, I need to fix these "safe spots" !rodot wrote:Good to hear!
Congrats on all the improvements, I can't wait to see the finished game, as it's already looking great and progressing fast!
I know it's too early in the game devlopment to talk about balancing, but I made few friends play it and they complained about the difficulty. They found a way to easily finish the game... stick you vessel in to bottom right corner, you won't get shot!
