potential mobile game

In games, GIMP on December 26, 2011 at 7:09 pm

I’m thinking about programming a mobile platform game with a drag-and-drop game development software called “GameSalad”. It will be designed to be very complex, and therefore very challenging. I will use GIMP to create the graphics for this game. What do you guys think? Here are some power-up ideas:

1) Bomb – you can throw small bombs (which activate switches and destroy enemies)

2) Plant – you can create tree platforms to stand on/ you can use photosynthesis if in a light beam (another special item) to gain health

3) Bat – flight ; can reveal enemies in Shadows(this might feature in a cave level)

4) Rhino – invincibility to Plant, Robotic, and Beast enemies ; faster walking

5) Battery – can overload robotic enemies’ circuitry, causing them to explode on contact with you!

6) Polar Bear – immunity to cold water(which would otherwise kill you)

7) Shadow – you can pass through Bone Walls ; immunity to undead enemies.

8) Dragon – you can spit lava balls, which destroy Plant and robotic enemies.

Here are some enemy ideas:

1) Pebble – A little rock enemy. they walk back and forth. If you touch one, it turns red and gets angry. They can only hurt you if they’re angry. can only be killed with bombs.

2) Mono(spanish- “monkey”) – These blue monkey-like enemies are found mostly in jungle levels, and they throw banana peels. If you slip on a banana peel, then you loose a life.

3) Rollout – A small, knight-like armadillo enemy with spikes on it’s back. they can roll up into a ball and charge at you. It can’t be killed.

4) Blumé(german-“flower”) – Walking flowers that try to punch you. Can be killed by jumping on it.

5) Blob – Small, jelly-like enemies that roll around. Can be killed by jumping on them. They will hurt you if you run into them.

6) Drillborr(swedish-“drill”) – Small, tank-like robots that attack with a giant drill nose.

7) Skelethor – little skeletons with Thor helmets that shoot lightning.

8) Puff-Club – Round, mushroom-like creatures that attack by releasing toxic spore clouds. they can be killed by jumping on them.

Here are some item ideas:

1) Sunshine beams – If you step through this item while you have the plant power-up active, you can gain full health!

2) Bomb switches – Switches that can only be activated by tossing bombs at it.

3) Cold water – Water that is so cold it kills you, unless you have the Polar Bear power-up.

4) Skeleton wall – Columns made of bones. Can only be passed through if you have the Shadow power-up.

5) Shadow – Dark patches that hide enemies lurking inside of them, unless if you have the Bat power-up.

Some enemies are classified as robots or undead, here are some enemy classifications:

1) Robotic

2) Undead

3) Plant

4) Beast

There are many environments that this game’s levels take place in, here are some examples:

1) Jungle

2) Desert

3) Factory

4) Cave

5) Mountain

6) Forest in Autumn

7) Volcano

8) Arctic

9) Graveyard

10) Tropical island

new super mario galaxy 2 graphics

In games, GIMP on July 17, 2011 at 10:38 pm

i decided to create enemy graphics from screenshots from SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2, one of my favorite wii games. i created graphics for two enemies that didn’t have graphics that i could use for a game that i might want to program. they’re from the game, and they’re called the “smeech” and the “mattermouth”.

this is what’s called a “smeech”. they kiss yoshi so that he can’t eat berries or goombas.

this is what’s called a “mattermouth”. these guys are these skulls that eat the floor of platforms and planets.

 

what other graphics should i create next?

lava monster graphics

In games, GIMP on July 16, 2011 at 9:13 pm

in super mario galaxy 2, in the melty monster galaxy, there are two lava monster enemies. i thought it would be cool to use them in a game that i’ll program, but there aren’t any graphics of them online. so, i watched a video on youtube that features these lave monsters(in full screen). when the monsters appeared, i paused it and took a screenshot. i opened the screenshots on GIMP and edited them to create usable graphics for anyone who wants to use them…just give me credit for it.

here is a lava monster called a “magmaargh”. here, it is hiding in lava, waiting for mario to walk near it.

here is a magmaargh ready to attack mario.

here is another lava monster called a “magmaw”.

my type of yugioh monsters

In GIMP on July 10, 2011 at 9:04 pm

 

 

i created a new type of yugioh monster with GIMP today: the evolution monsters!!! to summon them, you have to tribute the monster that is listed below their type. the tributed monster’s level must equal the evolution monster’s level. evolution monsters go into your extra deck. i plan on creating more evolution monsters and even new monster types in the near future.

funny money

In GIMP on April 16, 2011 at 5:26 pm

i decided to create fake money using some image-editing software galled GIMP. it’s kind of easy to see that this is fake money! I have a Mario dollar, a Luigi dollar, and a Bowser dollar.

mario power-ups

In GIMP on April 7, 2011 at 7:37 pm

You know how in mario games like “New Super Mario Bros. Wii” Mario can touch a flower and transform? Well, I thought that it would be cool for me to create my own flower power-ups so i created them on GIMP. I used a picture of this fire flower from “New Super Mario Bros. Wii”.

Here are all the flowers that I created. I created them with GIMP.

Apple flower                                                         Bowser flower                                                         Bowser Jr. flower                                                        Cheep-Cheep flower

Goomba flower                                                     Koopa flower                                                          Sonic flower                                                                 Wikipedia flower

pokemon are real

In GIMP on March 13, 2011 at 4:45 pm

With GIMP, I created pictures of pokemon by altering pictures of animals. Don’t they look realistic?

Here is the real Magcargo.

Here is the Magcargo that I made. I made it by using a picture of a snail and a flame.

Here is the real Onix.

Here is the Onix that I made. I made it by using a picture of a snake and blurring it to make the horn.

Here is the real Umbreon.

Here is the Umbreon that I made. I made it by altering a picture of a wolf.

my GIMP images

In GIMP on March 12, 2011 at 1:41 am

For christmas, my grandmother gave me a book about a software program called GIMP. GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. I used what I learned from the book to create all the images in this post. I hope you like them!!!

Here’s some of the various images a made with GIMP.

This is a Super Mario 64 picture. I took graphics from the internet that came from Super Mario 64 and just put them together. My friend has Super Mario 64 and I’ve played it before.

I got two images from the internet for this one and combined the two. I bet you can guess which images I picked!

I really enjoy using GIMP. I’ll put some more pictures on this blog later. I highly recommend the book about GIMP for people who are interested in computer graphics. The book is called “Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional“.
