Software News   Software News : Voxel Bird released
   posted by Daytona675x on 4-Apr-2014 11:34:09 (2948 reads)
Here's a fresh free game for MorphOS and AmigaOS4 (Warp3D):

Amazing Voxel Bird Saga (Beta)

Similarities to a game called "Flippy Bird" or so are purely coincidental and not intended...
No, really, it's different

Read more ----->


Survive as long as you can while scoring as high as possible while demolishing the voxel-environment.

"Beta", because those builds were tested only on my two development machines so far...

MorphOS users can be happy though since it works well even my antique G4s / Radeon 9000 in highest detail mode.

In contrast to that AmigaOS4 users aren't that lucky...:
It's most noticeably slow and with clipping-errors at the viewport-edges (Sam460ex, Radeon 9200).
Sorry, I cannot do magic, the driver situation is as it is. But maybe 2014 is finally the year when decent 3D comes to AmigaOS4, we are prepared

Please note:
It's beta and if you have technical problems etc. please use the contact mail on our product page since we cannot monitor every forum. Thank you!

Flöppy greetings,
Daytona675x

P.S.: yes, it's free.
But if you want to support us, there are donate-buttons on that page or on my own homepage.
And/or consider downloading the Android version

Tried on x1000 (radeon hd 6850) with wazp3d (composition) but i saw only background with clouds and no bird. There was points poping up and sound but no bird or any stuff in the way.

@Kicko
@Templario
As it says in bold in the first line: Warp3D
Wazp3d won't do, RadeonHD won't do. This game needs real 3D, sorry.
So, either MorphOS or AmigaOS with Warp3D supporting gfx-card.

@g0blin
@klx300r
Have fun!

Oh, and I always wanted to thank Bjarne Stroustrup for C++ pass-parameter-by-reference.
Thank you Bjarne, this great feature helped making the code much cleaner

Since im "stuck" with Ipad, ill wait for the IOS version.

Looks good tho

I must say the website design is veeeery impressive. Neat and crisp colors and layout.

Adding the youtube with excellent capture demostrating the game is whats to be expected these days.

Top notch stuff!

Hope you will continue the OS4 support.

Thanks, plays very nicely on my Sam440ep-flex 800MHz with Radeon 9250

Little hard though :/

Maybe I'm just getting little "old" hehe

Wow, in normal-mode? Not bad at all!

For itix it's too easy, so yes, most likely an age-thingy. For people like us I recommend easy-mode...

Bet on it. I didn't buy my sam to be used as a door-stopper

@Toaks
Thank you for that great review you made!

@all
Thanks for the nice feedback, glad you like it - and glad it works pretty nicely on your machines!
And extra special big thanks to those who donated or got the Android version, this is highly appreciated

Nice Game
Congratulations
>Wazp3d won't do, RadeonHD won't do.

In fact Wazp3D can but only with renderer:soft to bitmap so slooww :-/

You need to resize VoxelBird's window to very small to gain some speed
(can also use CloneWindow + key '!' on VoxelBird's window to obtain a bigger display....)

renderer:Compositing2D wont works as this game seems to use Zbuffer

Well, I can't help you then Or shall I add a cheat mode? Or a practice-mode?
But you are not alone: djrikki also told us that he finds it too hard and more, even garnished with a nice 2-star rating on Android, thank you djrikki

Well, in theory my A1200 can compute giant prime-numbers or whatever you want, but in reality it won't
Sadly Wazp is pretty much unusable in this special case here. If you aren't into SM I won't recommend it for playing VoxelBird

@all
There's a fresh version available for download with subtle but significant changes in the scoring-calculations. All in all you get more score the more coins you chain up.

Yes, but not for long anymore.
Since I found out that MiniGL is pretty performance-hungry and also is responsable for the "missing-triangles-at-the-edges"-bug I am currently getting rid of it in favor or "pure" Warp3D.
Almost done, already in beta-stage. The performance gain is really massive. All in all up to twice as fast. Even highest-quality-mode is now playable on my system.
