After spending a „little“ more than one hour on the project today, I’m finally finished. I „only“ wanted to add a background picture today but because of how the gameloop is coded, that was a little more complicated then I imagined. When things were finally working the way I wanted them to work I couldn’t get the game to compile in release mode. But even after they worked on my pc, I still couldn’t share them, because I had to add the vcruntime140.dll to the package. I’m always learning more about Visual Studio … Now – finally – everything works the way I want and I’m happy to be done with this part of my mandatory games list.
This is the playable game: TetrisDevember
This is the source code: TetrisSource
And – once again – this is the tutorial I worked with.
Tomorrow I’ll start thinking about the next game on the mandatory games list. Next up is „Bomberman (Or similar top-down shooters, other examples would be Asteroids, GTA, Space Invaders, Raptor, …)“ and since I always enjoyed Space Invaders, that’s what I’m going with.
