Game is really simple, written in about 2,5 weeks. You are yellow SMILE and you have to fight with red SMILES, using one of eight types of weapons, including grenades.
There are friendly yellow SMILES too, they can provide some help sometimes ...
You will get experience points for kills, more for harder enemies, extra damage, killing spree's and couple of other things ...
There is infinity number of levels, generated randomly at start. You can travel between levels using elevators (green for going previous level, red for going next level).
After gaining new level of experience, you can spend some extra points for attributes like shooting accuracy, shooting range, learning speed, camouflage and else...
Game is 3d, but on 2d maps, there is nothing else but floors and walls ... and of course SMILES.
There is some nice physics, used to calculate movement of dropped weapons or grenades. There are many colourfull static lights and some dynamic (like flashlight for example).
Engine ... there is no engine :) There is only twodimensional array of tiles, generating THE MAP and onedimensional array of smiles, generating THE FUN. There is no sound also. Rpt. no sound. Sorry. Will be in next version.
Lighting is both static and dynamic. Static is precalculated after random generating the map, and dynamic is just simple as that: the same, but in realtime.
As far as I remember, most things in code (lighting, collisions, movement, ai) is done by crude and brutal pack of functions like ray4something. And it's really horribly written.
And one more warning: mostly second "start-game" after death will cause error: rotating camera, you are dead all the time. Of course you can exit using esc. And just run the program again.
