Support for 6 players is finally out on Nintendo Switch!

 

Awesome news! 

Snake vs Snake v1.3.0 just passed certification on Nintendo Switch which adds support for 6 players, the ability to set snake speed and customize battle mode and improved graphics. Pretty much all the good stuff that you have been able to enjoy for months already on PC  and Xbox One.

There is one bug fix that isn’t out on PC yet and that is because I’m reworking the leaderboard system for speed runs to make it more interesting, more info will be available about this shortly.

Complete change log v1.3.0

* Fixed bug: Fixed sign in problems on Xbox One.
* Fixed Bug: In hardcore mode if you would exit to the main menu while playing the game the score didn’t reset which means you could easily get a really good score by just playing level 1 lots of times.
* Fixed Bug: When the Snake was running fast and you made a very fast turn it could kill you. This happens a lot more on PC than it did on consoles.

Celebrating 1+ year on Xbox One with a major update

Super Jumpy Ball was the first game that I published on Xbox One and it turned 1 year in September 2018. I was planning to do an anniversary update but then got caught up in releasing Snake vs Snake for Nintendo Switch so never had the time for it until now :o)

Actually this is just the first update as there are additional ones coming.

When doing the first version of Super Jumpy Ball I had zero budget so I couldn’t afford to buy and art or fancy things so it was mostly my developer art that was used. I wanted to focus on level design and learn that well so I decided to go with minimalist graphics so I did the original game mostly in black and white. In the end I did 40 levels and the game was ok.

So in the coming updates I want to implement better graphics and probably a story in the game as that is a frequent question I get from users. The goal is also to publish the game on Nintendo Switch.

So what’s new in this release?

In this the v1.3.3 update I prepared support for tilemaps and also screen transitions (this is not yet playable).

The jumping, wall jumping and how the character moves has been improved and I’ve added the possibility to play with your friends, couch style multiplayer with up to 8 players.

The focus has been to nail as good input and player control as possible for the game to work in a platform levels with elements of puzzles.

Another important aspect was to improve the leaderboard where each level had it’s own leaderboard before. Now there is a leaderboard per game mode which makes it more fun and interesting.

So what’s the major update? Well the real major update is that the I’m back working on this game and additional builds will be shipped on a weekly basis.

Detailed changes

v1.3.3
* New Feature: Added multiplayer support for survivor game mode.
* Improved: Survivor, change so that we use prebuilt sections using Tile map editor.
* Improved: Camera follows player on Survival game mode. If there are multiple players the game tries to keep as many as possible in view.
* Improved: Added parallax background on Survivor level.
* Improved: Added ability to enter players name on PC and Android.
* Improved: Optimized controls (even more).
* Improved: Added ability to do short or long jumps depending how long you hold down the jump button.

* Fixed bug: Ball got snagged on corners at times.
* Fixed Bug: If you press pause button while the level is ending the game freezes.
* Fixed bug: On Android the device id was reset each time you closed the game, causing lots of new users to be created.
* Fixed Bug: Skip level help label wrong color on Android.

v1.3.2
* New Feature: Added screen shakes when you die.
* New Feature: Added vibration when you die.
* Improved: Made controls more responsive.
* Improved: Added ability hold down jump button, if you hit something you bounce on it, like a real bouncing ball.
* Improved: Changed Hall of fame to be the total time you have spent on each level instead of a single leaderboard per level.
* Improved: Hall of fame is shown directly after you complete each level.
* Improved: Allow player to push jump button when in mid air after rolling off an edge for a very short time. This makes the game more forgiving when trying to jump from edges.
* Improved: You can go back to main menu when you complete a level.
* Improved: New and improved UI graphics.

* Fixed Bug: Face get stuck at surprised at times.
* Fixed Bug: Hall of fame waits to download score until the players score has been properly submitted.

* Game now runs on Nintendo Switch, yippee!

Trying to get the Nintendo Switch update out and fixing bugs

Sadly the v1.2.3 update of Snake vs Snake got stuck in the Nintendo certification queue for a very long time and just in the last moment they detected a tiny bug that needed fixing. Since the PC and Xbox version had several updates since then I decided to create a v1.2.9 update for all platforms.

Funny bug in Snake vs Snake Xbox One

Above is a funny bug where the Snakes just kept growing the in leaderboard for battle mode .

This update is also out on Xbox One and is being certified for Nintendo Switch , unclear when it will be available but I’ll keep you posted.

I hope that you will enjoy the new update and keep sending feedback in our  Discord Server.

Complete change log v1.2.9

* Improved: Remove exploit where you could restart a level when you were about to die to get a good time or survie longer.
* Improved: Leaderboard sorting type is now included on Nintendo Switch in the header.
* Fixed bug: On Nintendo Switch the game would crash if you closed it while the game was paused.
* Fixed Bug: Using Nintendo Pro controller displays wrong button in the leaderboard.*
* Fixed bug: Country and name save button was not aligned.
* Fixed bug: Snakes grew to long on the leaderboard if you pressed play again. Reset was not done properly of player scores.

Boom, headshot AI implemented

Snake vs Snake Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac

The AI in the past version of Snake vs Snake didn’t really do a good job with killing other players. Mostly it randomly just fired a shot whenever it got a hold of one. So I made it into a sniper AI that waits and aims to really land that head shot as often as possible. This makes the game much more interesting especially for people playing only against AI but they also contribute to make the game more interesting when playing with humans too.

In the last update I added the ability to customize the snakes speed in battle mode. After playing on faster and insane speed for a long time I felt that the speed in regular levels mode was just too slow and boring. So I increased that a bit in this update.

This update is also out on Xbox One and is being certified for Nintendo Switch , unclear when it will be available but I’ll keep you posted.

I hope that you will enjoy the new update and keep sending feedback in our Discord Server.

Details of what’s new in v1.2.4

* Improved: Speeded up snake on level modes.
* Improved: AI, now it’s much more deadly and wait until it gets an opportunity to shoot other snakes instead of just wasting perfectly good shots at walls and other obstacles.

* Fixed bug: Leaderboard had wrong font + color when access from main menu.
* Fixed bug: Level progression text is missing in levels mode.
* Fixed bug: After level 8 the game got stuck on some systems.
* Fixed bug: Wall bouncing obstacle got stuck on Snake tails at times.

Not fast enough for you huh? How about now?

With this updated I’ve focused on implementing features requested by people playing Snake vs Snake. That’s why I’ve added support for up to 6 players and also added the ability to customize battle mode by setting how fast the snakes should move, their length and set the win condition. Here is a sample of the 6 player battle mode running at INSANE speed.

Snake vs Snake Nintendo Switch Xbox One

Another thing that has been fully implemented is the new UI menu system and the awesome new logo.

Snake vs Snake Nintendo Switch Xbox One

A bunch of tiny things were changed like the ability to use a power-up by pressing A button even if the slot is empty but you have a power-up in slot B.

I hope that you will enjoy the new update and keep sending feedback in our Discord Server.

Details of what’s new in v1.2.3

* New feature: Customizable battle mode, select Snake speed, length and number of wins required to win.
* Improved: Added 6 Player battlemode.

* Improved UI: When going back in a menu you will be at the same place in the menu as you left.
* Improved: Reduced sfx volume of slow down powerup.
* Improved: Pressing A or B you can see a waves emoji to help you easier understand which Snake you are controlling.
* Improved: When playing battle mode you get more time to join the game before the count down starts.
* Improved: Adding AI players was a little bit slow at times. Speeded up the process.
* Improved: When a player wins in battle mode the Px Wins text is displayed with the same colors as the winners snake.
* Improved: If you only have a power-up in slot B but user presses A then Power-up B will be activated.

* Fixed Bug: Controllers kept rumbling when you died at times.
* Fixed bug: AI players controllers rumbled.
* Fixed bug: Your name is not allowed to contain line breaks as it messes with the leaderboard.

Snake vs Snake v1.2.2 with improved graphics is out!

Here is another attempt at doing a vlog with some insights of the development of Snake vs Snake.

Here is a regular text update if you prefer that.

As I mentioned in the last update we got a review with lots of suggestions how the game could be improved. A big change in the update is the new graphics and tools used to build levels. The graphics is based on a sprite sheet system and is drawn directly on a grid using a great tool for Unity called Super Tilemap Editor. This gives us the ability to create more complex and interesting levels.

Another important new feature is the ability to continue an old speed run or hardcore session. So let’s say you’ve completed 75% of the game and need to go an eat dinner or something. Previously you had to start over from scratch but now you can continue from where you ended the game last time. Hopefully this will lead to more people completing all levels of the game.

The AI has also received a makeover and it now behaves much better and is at times pretty hard to beat in battle mode. There is still room for improvements in future updates.
