AntTics revisited

What would our pathfinder be without an accompanying game? I have decided to finish a game I started a few years earlier, namely AntTics. This is a simple strategy game where you command a troop of ant soldiers against eachother. The white area shown in this screenshot is the coverage area for the selected winged ant at the top.

Find the way

To further improve our library, we have created a path finder algorithm. We are currently using the well-known A*Star algorithm for finding the shortest path, and a modified Djikstra algorithm for finding the coverage area.

Slickers earns money, Fire! gets an overhaul

We have added race statistics and a shopping interface to the Slickers game. It is now possible to use the collected money for upgrading your car. Dependent on your race position, you will also earn some money.

Fire! has also been updated. This game has now gotten a menu at startup and a shopping interface. Most of the first level is also complete, and end-level bosses will be added soon. Note the background behind the menu and the shop. The background on these screens are a scrolling preview of one of the later levels.
