"Robo Wars" is a multiplayer arena shooter game where players battle against each other in different modes, with different weapons, in different maps, for victory and for survival. This project was inspired from Halo, and is a mixture of COD and Halo in the 2D realm of shooting. The project was made in my free time.
WHAT MAKES THE PROJECT UNIQUE?
Fun multiplayer experience
High potential for further development
Inspired from Halo
I created this project to primarily learn about programming. I chose GameMaker because I felt that I only needed to understand the logic behind coding, and not the coding itself. On a side note, I also wanted to improve my pixel art skills to better understand its work process for future projects.
But, as time passed by, feature by feature, this project started to exponentially grow and it came to a point where I had the feeling that this project has high potential for a full release. Though at the end, I wasn't able to do it. I had to end the production because I got what I came for - which is, the knowledge on the basics of programming, and some practice on pixel art. Also, I stopped working because I had other University projects besides to work upon.
Game Design, Game Art, UI Design, and Programming.
