Ok here we go with my first screenshot

Not much to see yet...

But it will include a 4 player split screen where each person will control their spaceship.

Hopefull in the next few hours I can fix and add collision + enemy flying around.

Ok added some moving background (starfield, but difficult to see clearly from screenshot).

Added one kind of enemy, working on adding enemy projectile and getting working collision to work.

Here how its look like now.

Looks good. I really like the concept of tiny 4 player split screen on an iPhone.

@Bytesizeadventures

Thanks well I was aiming to make everything small even the already small iPod touch screen by having 4 player share the same space.

@jonathan0382

To do pixel edition like I was doing, its indeed great, if not I am also using GIMP, but during the GameJam I had some issue with X11 that kept it crashing so I switch to Pixen.

And as for people interested in seeing the preliminary version in action, ill up a little vids of it tonight on YouTube. Was too tired last night to do it (havent sleep for more than 24h). So I went bed at around 19h30-20h and slept until 7h this morning and went back to my regular day job.

It was fun!

Looks good Frederic! I like the idea of four player around a single device. Have you managed to get four people playing yet?

@GeorgeSealy

Thanks yah me too I think it could be fun to experiment (especially eventually for iPad) and see if I can fit something tiny on the iPod touch and get something playable. And yes 4 player could be controlling each their tiny space ship , I just have myself to use my 2 hand to try it hehehe.

Ok and like I promised earlier here is a link to the video I recorded tonight showing Tiny Space Thing in action, sorry if the thing isn't clear, but trying to record those "tiny" thing wasn't easy .
