FLOG⚡GOLF
(Chrome or Safari Recommended)

FLOG (floG? F.L.O.G.? Bare with me...) is a sort of puzzle game originally intended to be a minigolf game, which as you know is without  question a very serious, grueling sport. (I apologize to anyone who -- based on the name -- was expecting the game to be a game about flogging things or people. Maybe next time.)

How is it different from minigolf? Instead of controlling the direction/power of the putt, you place objects (obstacles, boosters, portals?) on the course to ensure the ball makes it In The Hole. The direction/power of the shot controls where you must position objects. IN SOVIET RUSSIA, etc.

Thus, it plays like a puzzle game.


Created with ImpactJS for newish browsers.

Code/Art/Etc by myself. Music by Shiru and Garry J Lee (aka Sycamore Drive).

For those of you who need sex content in your devlogs, here's a raunchy code snippet:
Code:
  balls = ig.game.getEntitiesByType 'EntityBall'
  for ball in balls
    if @touches ball  # HURRR
      touched = true
      break
  if not touched
    holes = ig.game.getEntitiesByType 'EntityHole'
    for hole in holes
      if @touches hole # Seriously I don't even have to try.
        touched = true
        break

And you call that "contextless, somewhat-abstract programmer art"? It's uber-cool, clean and stylish. I love it, and I especially dig the sinking ball. =)
I'm sure this game is going to be great!

The art assets look really good to me, not even slightly programmer art-y. The concept sounds fantastic aswell; a really nice new twist on the minigolf format (genre?)  Smiley

If you love golf and flogging, this game is über.
However it looks fun if you just like golf, too! Or flogging.

Finally got around to adding proper sounds!

The game now has bips, fwops, doinks, and even the occasional sha-thunk. Hand ClapAddicted

In crunch-mode now. I found some great tunes to go with it from an artist on Soundcloud. His work was all openly-licensed but he gave me his blessing either way.

I strongly encourage you to check his stuff out if you're looking for good chiptunes for your games: http://soundcloud.com/shiru

Still working!

I made a really ugly, stupidly complicated puzzle tonight. I thought it was hilarious, so I'm showing you guys:



The thing is, I think it's actually easier to solve than some of the more simple-looking ones. But it's impossible for me to tell.

Don't worry, not all the puzzles are this awful.

Oh and yes, those clouds are totally stolen from Cave Story. Bare with me; it's placeholder!

It is done!  Hand Shake Left Screamy Hand Shake Right

I spent two hours just figuring out quirks with Impact's broken Javascript compressor... Wound up doing it myself. http://www.flog-game.com/

Very solid game. An instant "sponsorable", one would say.  Wink

This is a really fun, great feeling game. I love the retro feel (the music!), reminds me of playing SNES.

One thing I wish I could change: the wavy/wobbly background. It's actually making me a bit dizzy so I had to take a break  Epileptic

Thanks! That's precisely the feel I was going for, of course.

Regarding the backgrounds: I'm just trying to hypnotize everyone. World domination, etc.

But seriously, thanks for being honest -- I don't know what I was thinking.  Facepalm

Really cool game! (It's defeated me pretty early on.)

I actually love the floating feeling.

Thanks!

The biggest problem is that I have no idea how difficult these puzzles are. I didn't really have the time to do enough testing. It's really hard to get people to play your game when it's not polished.

I learned a whole lot about puzzle design, though.

Any specific feedback about the puzzles?

Hi ImpactJs comrade! :D

FLOG is amazing. The puzzles are really well designed and the look and feel is just perfect for the game. I reached level 12 (without solving lv6, i got stuck with it). I thing the difficulty curve is good, the new items are greatly introduced. You made a great job with this game :D

@GreyShock -- Thanks for the kind words. So far I've only heard from one person who's managed to solve all the puzzles; you're ranked #2 in my imaginary high-score table.  Hand Thumbs Up Left Smiley
