    How did you do the reticle?

    lol - I haven't tried this yet, but I love the look. (and I've always loved the death bunny skulls)

    I think the reticule effect is achieved by drawing a circle with a HUGE stroke width. Very clever!

    Just played it, this is great, @Alex812a

    A couple of bugs:

    • You set the tint() colour for the dead bunnies but don't set it back before rendering the sniper "shot" explosion, which causes the explosion to be muted.

    • I can't kill the last three bunnies for some reason, did I run out of ammo?

    I tried it on my iPad 1 but i noticed the performance was pretty bad (due to the way the circle mask is drawn). So i had a go at optimising it by using an image to draw the circle mask edges and the clip() function to mask a square around it.

    Thank you Simeon, really it's easy to win the game as the bunnies appear in the same places.
    Firstly I tried not to use rects in cursor, but cursor ellipse with huge diameter and huge stroke disappeared after some time.
    John, now the game finished too fast:)
    Sorry for my English.

    Oh man...you beat me to it. I was making a game like this.

    @Nat
    The way I (not the creator) made my effect was

    Function draw()
    X=currentTouch.x
    Y=currentTouch.y
    X1=x-75
    X2=x+75
    Y1=y-75
    Y2=y+75
    Ellipse(x,y,150)
    Line(x1,y,x2,y)
    Line(x,y1,x,y2)
    End
    
  • Neat concept

    @Iruislopez137 - Sadly, Posterous shut down, so we can't access anything on their website. I never did get to try this out. :(
