Regarding the status of Pyro for Monkey 2…
I got a rough version of Pyro running! So now I am aiming to release a Pyro preview asap! Exciting times so stay tuned!
Little update: My aim is to have the preview up by the end of the month 🙂
That was a lot faster than I had hoped. Great job!
Looking forward to it :).

That looks really nice. Too bad about the explosions, they so do not fit in with the rest 🙂
Thank you and you are right about the explosions! They will be replaced later when all the gfx are finished. The game will also have some more enemies, levels and gameplay diversity, etc. Hence the WIP 🙂
I know it’s just a Pacman clone right now, but the art is gorgeous.
A little update regarding the preview. I have a little delay because of a last minute Monkey 2 bug. I reported it to Mark and it will get fixed so now I have to decide to work around it or wait for the fix.
Life’s too short for waiting, so what is your decision? 😀
Hi Danilo, actually Mark provided me with a workaround that works so I think I can get the preview up in a day or 2!
