Canonical announced the app showdown contest and I think I’ll partecipate.
Yesterday, I tought about what kind of app I should develop.
In my opinion, there are two different classes of applications that can be developped:
- Utilities app
Utilites app are easier to deveolp, cause the graphic interfece is a lot easier. With games, there’s no pre-built objects, there are more more more animations etc.
With my knowledge, I think I could develop an utility application, but since it is impossible for me to win, it would be interesting and useful for me to think of developing a game.
As I said, to develop a game I’ve really to improove my QML animations skills, and I’ve to start using inkscape too, that could be a real problem.
I don’t know if I’ll really publish my game, but I think I’m gonna try to do it.
I’ve already thought about what game I should build.
It has to be simple, cause, as I said, this is the first app of this kind I try to make.
The idea is simple. A cannon on the bottom that could be moved in the x assis and enemies that go down from the top. You can shoot them and some of them can shoot you.
I hope I’ll be able to do that 😀
News soon 😉
