Superpower

Updated at 2013-04-12 13:51

This is a way to implement superpowers and powerups using a well-defined structure.

class Superpower
{
public:
    virtual ~Superpower() {}

protected:
    virtual void activate() = 0;

    void move(float x, float y, float z)
    {
        // Code here...
    }

    void playSound(SoundId sound, float volume)
    {
        // Code here...
    }

    void spawnParticles(ParticleType type, int count)
    {
        // Code here...
    }

    // Any other properties what "a superpower event" may cause
};
class SkyLaunch : public Superpower
{
protected:
    virtual void activate()
    {
        // Spring into the air.
        playSound(SOUND_SPROING, 1.0f);
        spawnParticles(PARTICLE_DUST, 10);
        move(0, 0, 20);
    }
};
