Isometric game made with Melon

Recommended Posts

Hi

Does anyone have a link to a nice isometric game made with melon.js?

In the list of melon games I found something called GIK but it appears to be dead. Is there another one?

Hi, 

oh yeah indeed, GIK seems to be offline... that's a pity, that was really one awesome isometric game :(

As for other, I'm afraid the only one coming to my mind now is our online example, it's quite basic, but at features show multiple layer, map navigation, and a tile selector (so enough to get you started)

I'll come back if anything else comes to my mind !

not that I know, and I never tried myself to be honest, but it should not be that different from an orthogonal map ? 

 

Note that you can use the below function to convert coordinates between the two (ortho <> iso) :

 

found this as well by doing a quick search :

Thanks for the links, I'll try doing that. I think you are right, if I can figure it out with orthogonal coordinates it should be pretty similar.

Is there a built-in pathfinding function in melon? If not, can you recommend an external script or library to use?

Thanks for your help

There is no built-in one, but if you are up to it that would be a great PR :)

else see that post:

good luck with your project and keep us posted about your progress :)
