Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#19: Updating languages screen

Update #19
Updating languages screen

We decided to add flags to the language selection, it looks far more professional.


As an example, I added the screenshot in Spanish, still anyone can use this one right? It means it works.

Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#18: Leaderboards

Update #18
Adding leaderboards
We've been very busy but here they are our cool leadeboards.

We took as reference our Vortex Attack style to later adept it to the needs of Beekyr Reloaded.

Vortex Attack (2015)

Then it was moment to improve it, only 15 positions was no good for this. We wanted to show top 10, your score and near scores, and all time hi-scores in the élite mode (old madness).


We wanted to display the players country (or at least a flag) and that not be automatic, some people like to represent the country they don't live in.
We also wanted to display the date, level and played difficulty.


Also we wanted to add an extra field, played ship, they are all secret except the basic one, this will make people look for them. Or at least that's what we think it should happen.

Once we fixed they layout it looked like this:

We're happy with it Smiley

Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#16: Adding extra feedback when picking up pollen in vertical stages.

Update #16
Adding extra feedback when picking up pollen in vertical stages.
Now when player collects pollen, a small pollen particle will go up for a small amount of time, it looks nicer and also if the plaer didnt understand the text or the signs in the first tutorial. This will display that you just collected pollen, and it is good for you.

Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#15: Adding more variety (boss attacks)

Update #15
Adding more variety (boss attacks)

I just carried on adding variety to the shooting patterns.  And I've decided to add fishes shooting bubbles, praying mantis shockwave or spider throwing some spiderwebs. Each one of these "bullets" behave very different. Some of them leave trails, some don't kill you but slow you down. All of this leads the game to have many interesing scenarios and patterns.



Praying Mantis + shockwave

Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#14: Adding more variety (special attacks)

Adding more variety (special attacks)

Until now, the enemies were shooting almost the same: firing bullets with straight paths. The shape were different but still, same feeling.

I decided we could have some venom/poison coming from scorpions or baby-maggots. All of this leads the game to have many interesing scenarios and patterns.


Maggots shooting honey

Beekyr Reloaded. DEV LOG#13: Adding fantasy, optional, gore or extreme violence - (Part: II)

Update #13
Adding fantasy, optional, gore or extreme violence - (Part: II)


Explosions will make screen to shake now (The famous screenshake). It might be too much so we made it optional in the graphics options.


Also, star of the show. We've added extreme violence when you destroy most bosses. They break appart and all the limbs , body head etc will break appart with a massive explosion.


Before of this the bosses would fall down while we displayed a series of explosions.
