So here is a major update.
Just a month of development to go, so I want
to get some feedback on the current status.
Goal: Multiplayer game were you all need to
get to the middle of the board.
You don't need other players to advance in the
game. All players get the same puzzle, but a
different 'mirror' on the puzzle.
You can create your own room when there are
none to select from. Selection of rooms is
based on the level you achieved.
At the moment there are four kind of blocks:
- stone-block = cannot be moved
- finish-block = the middle of the board
The object of the game is to push the
colorblocks to eachother to get them removed
from the board. Not all blocks need to be
removed, just the once you need to get to the
Maybe later I will let the blocks do some other
things as well, but for the time being it is
just 'push to match-blocks'
Backspace = undo
You can make an account with 3 characters! (tiny-space!)http://mazeland.net/tinyblocks/index.html
Game has a scale of 12!
There are 5 main MySQL tables.
users, data, rooms, scores, levels
Controlled by PHP script that gets called by
an URL connection from Java.
The users table has a heartbeat field.
The heartbeat is updated each time a user
gets / receives data from the server.
When a heartbeat gets lost, the player is
removed from the board (rooms-table)
The data table contains all the board-data
and the updates that are done on the board.
Initially the board-data gets copied from
the levels-table that contains the puzzle
to be mirror-copied to the differnt areas.
Scores will be stored, but there is
no list at the moment to get a 'low'score
When you reached the last level, the next
level will be the first level of the game.
