« Posted 2013-03-12 00:12:32 »

Hey guys. So I am just looking for an open source game with the same concept as Hill Climb Racing. The reason I want it it so I can mess with it and play with it for fun. I want it to be for computer - not android. If anyone knows of something like this, PLEASE save me the trouble of coding one. I have no clue how the physics would be done AND since I only want to play with it, I don't really want to create it from scratch.

If you want to develop games it's more than editing other people's code. There's a word for using other peoples' work as your own, it's called plagiarism. Like I said, if you just want to edit stuff, either go to a high-level game "making" tool or go mod minecraft or something.

Well I was about to write an Hill Climb Racing clone someday, but I kind of lost the fun in doing that...

Here is what I had:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45530199/Games/HillClimbRacing/HillClimb.zip

It was in a testing-phase and 99.9% of the important code was inside GameWidget.java, which is pretty, pretty ugly...

Anyways, it's possible to drive a monster truck around and jump around in the game world... I think it should give you an idea about what tools you should use and stuff like that...

HCR used Cocos2D as the underlying engine. I used LibGDX + Box2D (My first LibGDX project, so beware...)

[snip...]

What are you even trying to do with GWT?

So many errors there:


You need to install LibGDX (back then I used version 0.9.7) and download the Physics body editor runtime (see "Download" and click on the code.google.com link and include the loaders...)

I'm a little late to this discussion, but I do run a little website that has user-submitted open-source Java (and Processing) games available to play and download. I'm not sure if we have exactly what you're going for, but if you want to poke around some open source games, it might be worth checking out: http://StaticVoidGames.com

I think he didn't want to claim that he did it by himself, there is no plagiarism. I started my own project in October 2006 by editing Vincent Stahl's source code and now TUER contains 0 line of code from his game.
