Atom, my first DS game

Finally I have done it :P I have finished my first game for the nintendo ds done by myself. Well, it is a very simple game, but it doesn't matter

Atom is a game where you control an atom and have to avoid the electrons coming against you. During these weeks I have been working not only in that game but in my library... in fact, almost all the time I was doing library stuff. But now I have a more complete library and a game estructure that I will use for my next projects (so, things are supposed to be easy now)

The game finally uses float :P Althought I can change it to Fixed point with a typedef in the code. But for the game to work properly with them I needed 64 bits integers, and they are not supposed to be faster than floats whatever people say.

Now I have in mind a new project, let's see if I can finish it soon. These days I am very busy working in other things (nothing to do with computers this time :) )

You can find Atom here: Atom

If you want the source code, please ask for it


  • Nice! May be it is a little fast for me, I can hold more than 10 seconds :-P. I suggest to exit the game over screen with the touch screen, not the start button, but anyway it is your game. Good job!

  • Thx, Chino ^_^
    I had problems exiting with the touch screen because when the game is over the player still is touching the screen, so you never saw the Game Over message.

    It was a fast solution to change this and use Start button instead, but I know it looks strange :P

    Anyway I am not going to do anything else with this game. I am working in other things now... and I have a problem... A WII HAS GOT INTO MY HOUSE!!!!!! So, I think I won't make any code in a few weeks XDD
