The basics of multiplayer work!
I started off controlling all 4 players with one gamepad, which was a bit overpowered, as you can see below. I’ve separated the controls now, and I’ve ordered another Xbox 360 gamepad so that I’ll have 4 input devices. Was actually quite easy to add multiplayer: I mostly just replaced every reference to the player with a vector (array) of players. Now I’m going to modify the game difficulty appropriately – I’ll take some ideas from Jamestown’s multiplayer mechanics.
Here’s what happens when you use all four bombs at once. This won’t be in the game though.
