Hide and Seek++

Have you ever shot at people in hide and seek? As a seeker, have you ever had to collect dots? And in both roles, have you ever had a set way of defining "score"?? Time limits?? Not at all! In this spin-off of the hide-and-seek, all those features will get incorporated! Hide-and-seek just got a lot more interesting!

About

This is the demo for a new game I am making, it will be multiplayer and you will have time limits and so much more! This is just a demo so I can get ideas and feedback :D

How to play

It is included in-game, but if you want:

  • Arrow keys to move
  • WASD to move
  • Hiders: Click to shoot

Questions

Why am I always a seeker?
Why don't you want to be a seeker smh
Don't worry--you will be able to be a hider in the full edition
What was it made in?
JavaScript and soon socket.io!

Updates

  • Special thanks to @GeneralBaker for pointing out the holes being unrealistic! I fixed it :)
  • Added 3 new hiding places! Sand, Pond, Log
  • Nerfed hider score

Credits

I could not make this game so awesome if not for the help of

Closing

Have fun!
Please comment below with answers to these questions:

  • is it laggy? What is the average framerate?
  • how long does it take to get to number 1 on the leaderboard?
  • are the colors good?
    Happy Seeking!

HAHA

you'll never find me

jokes on you cause squid's can change colour!11!!!1! 😂😂😎

DynamicSquid (3609)

@Coder100 nothing can beat a squid!

dominicl645 (30)

lmao true that....what about a chameleon tho? or a green anole, you know the little lizards that live in southern Georgia and in all of florida? they are little chameleons. @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (3609)

@dominicl645 squids are obviously the better camouflager smh

Leroy01010 (369)

NOT ALL KINDS OF SQUIDS CHANGE COLOUR!... @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (3609)

@Leroy01010 I know, only the colour changing squids can change colour, like me

ComputingSquid (42)

also some octipi can change color lol.
but i'm still a squid.
a ComputingSquid
no wonder i can code @Leroy01010

ComputingSquid (42)

hello @DynamicSquid
we really should be making a squid clan.
we have ComputingSquid
DynamicSquid
and,
SquidCoder

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@DynamicSquid i think this was a game developed by @Coder100 but its a discussion for know what squids can change the color and what squids cant(so funny)

ComputingSquid (42)

um seriously?
this is a side discussion @Duvangamer3845
well lol this is a squid discussion tho.

ComputingSquid (42)

can we continue this anyways? @Coder100

Coder100 (8709)

what is a game without rumors @ComputingSquid

ComputingSquid (42)

ummmmmm ok?
u should make it so that if your username contains squid, that you are then invisible
make that the easter egg idk @Coder100

ComputingSquid (42)

don't u know wut an easter egg is?
@Coder100

ComputingSquid (42)

oh ok. then u should put one in maybe. @Coder100

hihitherethere (3)

Adding and easter egg would be cool, as it would attract more people to find more of them. Maybe having 'squid' as your username would make your hider/seeker have a squid [email protected]

ShivankChhaya (97)

You made surviv.io number 2!!!

ShivankChhaya (97)

@Coder100 to answer the questions above,
It is not laggy(i dunno what framerate is)
IT be EZ for num 1
The colors are great!!!!

ThisUserTaken (120)

Very cool! (Also, is it supposed to say Avoid Hiders for Hiders on the How To Play section cuz I think you meant to write seekers, not avoid hiders

Coder100 (8709)

lol thanks for finding that! @ThisUserTaken

ThisUserTaken (120)

@Coder100 best creator i've ever seen, at least on repl.it

RolandJLevy (498)

Hey @Coder100, very cool- nice job!

python88 (172)

@Coder100 are these people or bots?

python88 (172)

and how do i get hider? @Coder100

Coder100 (8709)

in the multiplayer version! @python88

DSAEvan (4)

How to get multiplayer? @Coder100

Coder100 (8709)

@DSAEvan still working on it ;)

TinaChen4 (13)

@Coder100 Are these people or bots?

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@TinaChen4 BOTS! ONLY WAIT THE MULTIPLAYER VERSION

Name12 (134)

wait, is this a multiplayer online .io game or what?
cool game anyway
PS: humans can't change colors. but squids can!. am I right @DynamicSquid

Name12 (134)

@Coder100 and here's a challenge got you:
1: make a tower defense game
2: make a first person shooting game
3: make a Role play game (RPG) that tells the story of Squid and human becoming friends

choose the one that you like(you don't have to)
BTW: choice 3 will make both me and @DynamicSquid happy because both squids and human are awesome.

Coder100 (8709)

number 3 seems fun, already have made number 2 and number 1 seems boring (no offense to any TD games out there) @Name12

Name12 (134)

@Coder100 Oh yah. your doughnut quest game!! how did I forget that!

Name12 (134)

@Coder100 BTW, does @DynamicSquid have a discord account?

DynamicSquid (3609)

@Name12 lol why did you ask coder for my discord account?? also no i don't

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@Name12 its like the another.ios, only a multplayer game on the browser, innovating idea maked by a programmer with a big future

Coder100 (8709)

what is this convo about lol @Duvangamer3845

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@Coder100 i dont understand... your answer ;)

Coder100 (8709)

what is this conversation about, and where can i find it? @Duvangamer3845

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@Coder100 only im saying, if you perfect the game, you gonna being one of the most populars developers in the browser

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@Coder100 im gonna follow him and if i dead you know who was

abdullahrajput9 (16)

Just an amazing game @Coder100
Very impressed.

Just wanted to ask (if you don't mind) how old are you?

abdullahrajput9 (16)

Wooooooooow @Coder100
You are 13 and the best game developer on repl.it
I am MIND-BLOWN.
Great job..

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@abdullahrajput9 i think the best game its a multiplayer shoot game in 3d maked in the past, but the popular days to that game has passed

Duvangamer3845 (117)

@abdullahrajput9 but the difference is: this have a future xd

abdullahrajput9 (16)

Can you please provide a link to that game? @Duvangamer3845 I wanna try it(although its outdated :D )

abdullahrajput9 (16)

OMG THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH @Duvangamer3845 I will install this game if I can. Thanks a lot. :)

GeneralBaker (15)
  1. Got a pretty good framerate
  2. Could never get 1st, for some reason, at about a score of 160, I couldn't find a single bot. I refreshed and tried again, but they were completely gone again at 160-180 points...
  3. color scheme is good. I would suggest to make sure the 'hole' objects are created first so they stay on the bottom layer. A hole in the ground shouldn't overlap bushes and rocks. Also, the grid could also be a little larger. The only reason I know of for a grid is to show movement on large maps.

Great game, can't wait for the full version!

Coder100 (8709)

@GeneralBaker yay!! Thanks!! :D I will try to implement your feedback :D

GeneralBaker (15)

Nice! Also wanted to mention that the same logic should apply to ponds, as well as agreeing with some other comments: The artwork should be a little more coordinated. It's OK to use other game's styles of artwork, but if it isn't consistent it doesn't look great. @Coder100

Coder100 (8709)

@GeneralBaker yeah, I switched the editor halfway through lol

JosephSanthosh (1192)

I have to mention that

@coder100 is the best game dev in this entire universe!

retronbv (99)

What about meeeeeeeee :C @JosephSanthosh

retronbv (99)

I said what about meeeeeeeee @Coder100

retronbv (99)

He said you the best :C not me @Coder100

JosephSanthosh (1192)

well u can be second best? @retronbv

retronbv (99)

Yayayayayyayayayyaya lol @JosephSanthosh

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@JosephSanthosh Reeee I wish more people had seen my Shot in the Dark

SwaroopBappanad (40)

@retronbv I mean, you are a good dev, but I have to say, this project is mind blowing (not to mention that this is just the demo. It would take me longer to print hello world on the console than it did for him to code this.)

Coder100 (8709)

oh btw if any of you could give me some art that would be epic
Requirements:

  • 101x101
  • must use piskel
  • must cover at least 60% of the canvas (~60 pixels)
  • must be given as a png

idrgplayer (30)

I really liked ur game! I wish I could make games like this xD.

idrgplayer (30)

@idrgplayer Since you upvoted my rock paper scissors and gave credit to a noob I will upvote urs ;).

Coder100 (8709)

also do you mind answering those 2 questions, thanks! @idrgplayer

tankerguy1917 (37)

this is fun. its almost surviv.io. i do think that its a little hard to move up the leaderboard as a hider though. sorry, seeker, not hider

Coder100 (8709)

hmm, I will consider, thanks! @tankerguy1917

JosephSanthosh (1192)

wouldn't it be so cool to have a slither.io, but the bots will be so hard to code... @Coder100

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@JosephSanthosh The bots wouldn't be too hard... just use boids

fuzzyastrocat (769)

Cool! (Nice bot names, moderately convincing)

Coder100 (8709)

ok be sure to give me the answers to the questions in closing kthx @fuzzyastrocat

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@Coder100 Ok sure:
1. No
2. A few minutes. As soon as I stopped I dropped down pretty far though.
3. Yes. However, I have one graphical suggestion — having all the pixelart resolutions be different makes it look weird (the holes have really small pixels but the rocks have really large pixels). I'd recommend trying to make it as consistent as possible to give the whole game a "look".

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@Coder100 Oh also, this doesn't make sense:

Why am I always a hider?
Why do you want to be a seeker smh
Don't worry--you will be able to be a hider in the full edition

Maybe you meant "Why am I always a seeker?" and "why do you want to be a hider"?

KrispyChiken (75)

For the seeker, I notice it is suspiciously similar to the diep.io tank Annihilator:

. Was this inspired by diep.io?

KrispyChiken (75)

@Coder100 lol XD I also play this

Pankak (25)

@KrispyChiken if you want a minimalistic turret that can clearly be distinguished as a turret but not too hard to make, then that's pretty much the only design. So you could say diep stole it from the universally agreed upon turret look in 2d web browser games

Coder100 (8709)

@Pankak nah annihilator was one of the last tanks they made (next-to-last)

Coder100 (8709)

plz research the game first, thx @Pankak

Pankak (25)

@Coder100 I said nothing about being added first or last, it's just been universally agreed upon by the 2d io game community that the diep annihilator style art is a turret

Coder100 (8709)

@Pankak nonono smh smh no no no no this is diep.io, nothing to do with some sort of game theory or something, in diep.io, the larger the barrel, the bigger the bullet is, and usually the more damage it makes, nothing about this turret thing, turrets are on top of the circles and like swivel around

Pankak (25)

@Coder100 r/ihadastroke I can't even tell what you're saying read what you said and try to comprehend it

firefish (556)

@Coder100

Added 3 new hiding places! Sand, Pond, Log

I literally misread it as Sand Pog Pog, from experience.

arjgupta (2)

upvote this if you think this game is awesome

ChezTacoz (342)

Love the game so far!!! (I thought i was playing with real players at first lol)

Coder100 (8709)

lol, dw, ill send screenshots

@ChezTacoz

ChezTacoz (342)

@Coder100 ah yes thank you for this screenshot that I 100% definitely understand because I 100% definitely know how to code like a pro in HTML. Thanks!!!

Codemonkey51 (864)

Woah I found a wild @Coder100 in its natrual habit, a repl talk post, squeezing cycles

firefish (556)

@Codemonkey51 lol, so true

This is the wild @Coder100 in it's natural habitat, a repl talk post, s q u e e z i n g cycles. - David Attenborough

EthanMeehan (0)

@Coder100
this game is lame bc it is just the same thing over and over again
i suggest making it change every time

techde (92)

@EthanMeehan Dude give feedback politely, or dont give it at all.

techde (92)

@techde huh, it sent it two times, prob bc I was click the comment button too many times, bc it was lagging.

techde (92)

@techde what the... ok now that's 100% a repl glitch.

hihitherethere (3)

Make the map change? Because when he moves it to multiplayer, idk if thats [email protected]
and @techde i totally agree. Please give feedback politely. You can suggest it, but don't talk it down like that.

Coder100 (8709)

after a server restart the map automatically regenerates, but it doesn't 'change' technically @hihitherethere

Coder100 (8709)

sure, didn't I ask for your help? Anyways, the requirements are:

  • has discord
  • has vscode (live share extension)
  • knows ts (I'm doing backend in typescript for my sanity lol)
    @hihitherethere
[deleted]

Is anyone else experiencing that the bots keep getting harder and harder to find?

hihitherethere (3)

Oh yes definetly. I could easily get to 3rd on the leaderboard, but after that, the hiders were so hard to [email protected]

Coder100 (8709)

hey btw do you have vscode @hihitherethere

hihitherethere (3)

no, but i could help you make the power ups and more [email protected]

[deleted]

Hmm...dis is against bots

[deleted]

make it actualy people plz?? @Coder100

Coder100 (8709)

yeah im still working on multiplayer @HyperGamerStuds

brogen (42)

is this against AI or people?

ThisUserTaken (120)

are the holes from mope.io? just curious!

firefish (556)

@ThisUserTaken Yeah, you know, I thought that too, but really, didn't pay attention afterward because the grilled cookie always does something dumb every now and then

cheesewiddaman (5)

lol nice diep.io reference "this is the tale of..."

Duvangamer3845 (117)

HaS + diep.io + agar.io=

Code1Tech (64)

You are 13 but a fullstack js dev?
You must be in the Guinness World records!
i cant even read the js, i only know basics.
Well done! (I know i have commented before but i had to comment this)

firefish (556)

@Code1Tech Well he's following the ToS at 13+ only, gosh i'm not

WilliamRoss6 (6)

Is getting to number 1 hard or am I just bad.

Coder100 (8709)

idk it seems easy for some people and harder for others @WilliamRoss6

firefish (556)

@Coder100 easy for you because you know every trick in the book BECAUSE YOU MADE THE BLASTED BOOK
