This is the project thread for a subgame of Afar, a popular game in the completed games boards.
Afar thread: viewtopic.php?f=77&t=73055
Afar was previously known as Vengeance.
Afar is a free browser based RPG game. It is online, multiplayer, and is built mainly from scratch.What is Afar Mobile Edition?
The mobile ed is the full game of Afar squeezed into the tight space of a mobile device app.
The idea is this will bring a larger user base, and given it's form, the game is ideal for remanipulating for different sized devices and such.Platforms
Afar Mobile Edition will be available on iOS (for iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone) and Google Android. It will be available for free in their respective marketplaces.Screenshots & Systems
On launching the app you're given a login screen. This acts as both a login and register form - all you ever have to enter is a username and password. Pressing begin starts the game with a brand new account using those details. Pressing continue logs you in (using cookies, so it will remember you in future).
Moving around uses the same map system, but in a different resolution to fit the screen. As before, clicking map objects does certain actions - here, the three trees can be cut down to obtain wood.
Battles work exactly the same as in the full game, however they have also been shuffled around to fit on a smaller resolution.
Items and spells are going to work as sliders - you move your thumb along on them to select a new spell or item and press it once to use or cast.
This screenshot shows the largest size of enemy pitted against the player to show how it would fit on the screen.
When you open the app, instead of going to the main menu, you will immediately appear in the last area you visited (if you're logged in).
There will also be a "menu" screen which acts as a sort of landing page offering links to a few things, latest news (Twitter feed), etc.
The inventory lies untouched - it magically just worked in the new resolution. It just needs a bit of tweaking, out by a few pixels etc.The game itself
For the "full" game you can play now at http://www.afar.ws

What you see above is a mix of live working things and mockups.
It's going to take a lot of work. As I design each section I'll upload them as screenshots.
There's a lot to get through.Thanks
Thanks Action who found a way to do this! Yay!Missing bits
