In retrospect writing what you are supposed to do might have been a good idea.

You are supposed to avoid the cubes hitting your center while keeping them in the "shield" and you need to switch color of the shield to match the color of the cubes to damage them. After each round you can spend xp to upgrade (cannot upgrade when round is in progress). (The cubes also have different stats but I'm not spoiling which stats.)

Working on another game not sure if I will really finish this one since I kinda feel like I already practiced what I wanted to. I will probably just add the bare minimum to make it work and leave it like that.

Hey, i saw that you want to make games in UE4... If you want to use C++ to do it, I really recommend getting this course on Udemy. It's quite often on sale for 10€. But since you are a beginner, definitely finish Chili's intermediate tutorials first before you dive into UE4 C++.
Good luck on your coding endeavors.

In the end I ended up adding a bit less than I initially planned but a bit more than I planned when I made the previous comment.

I'm a bit hesitant to pay for tuts but I will definitely keep that in mind.

Interesting concept. It took me a while to figure out what exactly I was supposed to do :D
I'm looking forward to what you create next. Keep up the good work.

Just letting everyone know that I'm not dead neither did I quit. It's just that life is kinda shit right now (and I'm not really liking redoing the game tuts on my own all that much which makes it even harder to get myself to program). Anyway I don't want to rant too much.

Probably won't be seeing anything from me for about another month then with bit of luck it should be better.

It took a bit longer than expected by I'm mostly fine now.

Also while I did very limited coding for the past few month I managed to do something that I will post just so you can look at how I managed to do an alarm clock with my current knowledge (beginner 20 tut)
alarmClock source

It's supper simple you pretty much can't do anything with it expect let it run and it will display time (you can turn of the rendering to save CPU h for hours m minutes s seconds a all) and ring at the time it is set to (duh).
I didn't bother to add any option to set the alarm since A I don't know how to make it save for the next time you start the program and B this guaranteed that it will ring at the correct time to wake up the person I did it for.

Pretty much the only thing worth looking at is how I did the clock in clock.cpp (warning prolonged staring may lead to IQ loss).
(Maybe also how I render the clock but meh.)

Didn't work on my own stuff for a while since there were a lot of games in the series near the end. Well now I finished the beginner and did another game on my own.
My plan now is to rewatch the whole beginner series and see if there is perhaps something I completely forgot and depending on how big it is perhaps redo the corresponding tut.
After I'm done with that I will do one more game and then move on to intermediate.

Anyway here is the game.
JumpyCube source
Totally did not just reuse random sounds from chili games trust me :) .
(also gotta love the last 2 commits.)
Anyway the controls come with the game and I'm sure you can figure out the hud and what you are supposed to do.
The game is pretty easy to win so just do it.
