Here's another video, this one showing off cross-platform networking between iOS simulator on my Macbook, a Samsung Galaxy S5 (Android), and an iPad Air. Enjoy!

Me again Here’s a new video! I’ve been working on implementing some mobs. I have to work on two part: local simulation of the mob (basically fighting him on your device), and the networking (so that other players can see you fighting it).

So what you see here is the local simulation of fighting a mob. Enjoy!

Hi everyone! Hereís another video, this time showing of a mob fight with two players, on multi-levels. Itís also showing across some cross-platform action between an iPod Touch and a Samsung Galaxy S5.

Took me a little while to get this all working since each player can be on a different level, but they are in the same world.

Enjoy!

Hi again! Here’s a fresh video showing 3 player gameplay. I’ve added some upper/lower platforms, and more monster spawns. Touch to shoot has been implemented for wizard/mages.

Of course, all of this is still very early dev and still not complete by far. It’s more to show progress that’s been done so far.

Enjoy!

Hi!
https://youtu.be/eeTuU5dYIFM

Itís been almost 4 weeks, I have been hard at work adding many things!

-Some new 3d shaders, to add some mood lighting. Still a work in progress. The paladin and monsters are lit, the mage and warrior arenít (thatís why they look brighter in the video)
-Iíve added more sounds to add some atmosphere
-A gargantuan spider boss! He has a web attack which paralyze and shoves players to the side of the screen. Another player has to chop the web off
-A poison attack which affect all players facing the spider
-I have a few more abilities to add to it
-Iíve added a paladin, who can fight and also heal
-Iíve implemented an aggro system as well
-Tons of bug fixes

Itís shaping up nicely! Enjoy!
