Updating my post to say I completed finaly completed this project, which you can play here :
Flat Heroes is a console/pc minimalist game. Super fun and challenging game, both solo and multiplayer.
I decided I would remake this game as a JS/Three.js a learning project (and also cause my 5yo son is a fan of the game, although he can’t get passed level 3 )
Technically… The game’s pretty straight forward. I started off without any physics library, which has seemed ok (so far). “Missiles” are styled with shadermat.
Technical disclaimer : the game is highly unoptimized, meaning tons of unecessary drawcalls. These are mainly caused by my thinking I’d just make a level or two… Thus choosing not to use instancedmesh, resulting in terrible performance on mobile/slow PC.
Hope you like it anyway !
