Multiplayer?

Jul 12, 2013 at 6:25 PM
I was thinking about making this game multiplayer and wanted to ask if my idea sounds plausible before I try it. My idea was to make it multiplayer all I would need to do was open a socket listener on one player and on the other send a packet that would contain alive, x, and y then adding a image at the positions.

Hi notmot,

Sorry for such a delayed response. Did you ever follow up on this idea?

I don't have much experience with networked games, but I imagine it would be much more work then you described. In particular, you need to keep the entire game state in sync for both players. There are entire books dedicated to this topic. That shouldn't stop you from trying though, I'm sure it would be good practice :)
