Projects / Goba


Goba (Game Of Bases) is a remake of the classic Flash Attack game featuring pre-rendered graphics, sound, and networking (no computer opponents) with meta-server support. You control four tanks and try to destroy enemy bases while defending your own. The tanks have weapons, a set of mines, and the capability to build walls and fake bases, all of which may be recharged back at the base. The bases have a limited number of bomb attacks in their disposal, plus a laser beam that can cut through the whole game field (2000 x 2000 pixels).

    Release Notes: This release fixes an issue with constantly opening the font file, which eventually lead to a crash. You may now click a location for a tank and have the tank move itself autonomously there.

      Release Notes: A Debian package is now available. Tanks may now build walls (which are more durable than the fake bases). Tank HP has been replaced with a visual indicator and many texts were replaced with symbols. There are also lights indicating whether players are alive or dead. Colored tanks and bases (other than the gray ones) now look better. Runtime memory consumption was reduced by not keeping non-cropped bitmaps in memory.

        Release Notes: Tanks now have more ammo, and they can build fake base objects. Enhanced graphics: rerendered bases and tanks, drawn tile graphics, and rendered explosions. Targetting lasers and bombs was made easier with visual guide lines. The map generator is more robust, and produces maps of varying grass levels. Blitting performance has been optimized by cropping loaded bitmaps and converting some images to JPEGs.

          Release Notes: The graphics are now more polished. The background bitmap, faded window borders, mines, projectiles, and bases now have rendered graphics.
