This is a game very similar to Cube Runner on the ipod touch. It has unlockable beginner, medium, expert, and bonus levels. I made it with two kids in my high school computer science class. First time any of us ever did anything with Dark Basic. Hope you enjoy!

Attached is a .zip file that contains an .exe and all necessary files to play the game, including the code file if you wanna check it out.

Pretty nice game! And addictive too!

I don't want to be rude or anything, but every wip or program announcement has to come with an in-game screenshot, or the thread will be locked.

You can use something like photobucket or imageshack, copy the direct link into the post message box, highlight it and hit the "image" button.

Thanks! And sorry, didn't know that. I'll do that now and edit my first post.

You really need to fix your "collision" or random number generator that you're using to determine if you hit a cone or not, especially with how sensitive the controls are. Every time I hit one the ball is several miles away from it. I also spawned right in front of a cone about 1/3 of the times it started.

Other than that, it was fun. Good music.

I realize this, I used the If Object Collision() statement. It's not working well and I'm disappointed in it. How can I make it better? Should I use Sparky's Collision Code? If so, how would I do that. And about the spawning in front of cones error, I am working on it right now!

Thanks for the input!
