FUZE Technologies Ltd is set to launch FUZE4 Nintendo Switch on May 31st

Video Games

  • There are more than 200 functions and commands in the language covering 2D, 3D, Audio, Text and Controls.
  • Over $1,000 worth of gaming assets are included. That’s more than 10,000 3D models, 2D sprites and sound files!
  • A comprehensive Programmer’s Reference guide with detailed explanations and examples for most commands.
  • More than 25 Tutorials ranging from “Hello World” to a step-by-step game series.
  • Extensive examples and demo programs to inspire, modify and play.

FUZE4 Nintendo Switch is a coding application for Nintendo Switch. It has been designed and developed by a team of experienced gamers, programmers, artists and educators. Programming languages all have their pros and cons. FUZE4 takes as many pros as could be crammed in from a mix of these languages (C, Python & BASIC to name a few) to create a language that is as easy as BASIC, powerful like C and versatile like Python. The end result is a language ideally suited to coding games and apps for absolute beginners and seasoned programmers alike.

The site has been updated to include the latest product description. https://www.fuze.co.uk/about-fuze4-nintendo-switch.html

Interface

  • Intuitive, clear and minimal
  • Customisable with a variety of themes
  • Works with Touch, Joy-Cons and USB keyboards
  • Preferences
  • Comprehensive Help including a full command reference with explanations and examples, quick reference and extensive tutorials

Editor

  • Fully functional Coder’s touch keyboard (& USB, Joy-Con etc.). Almost all items accessible with a single tap
  • Undo / Redo
  • B ookmarks
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Copy, Cut & Paste
  • Visible Clipboard
  • Instant access to media assets and on-screen help
  • Intuitive cursor controls

Programming Language

  • Built in libraries for 2D, 3D & Audio
  • Variable types (Int, Float, String, Structures, Arrays, Vectors, Handles)
  • S imple to advanced math functions including lerp, bezier, distance, clamp, cross and dot product, normalise etc.
  • Handles 2D Graphics with ease including quadrilateral image deformation
  • Advanced Sprite Engine including sprite camera, scaling, rotation, animation, fading, tinting, velocity (against all transformations) and collision d etection
  • Supports Tilemaps and Spritesheets
  • 2D Effects including screen filters and multiple screen buffers
  • P owerful 3D Engine with world, point and ambient lighting, with or without shadows
  • Deferred rendering - separation of geometry and lighting in a 3D renderer using intermediate buffers
  • Temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) - antialiasing method using data from previous frames
  • H igh dynamic range rendering (HDRR) - rendering using a wide range of colours to calculate lighting before tone mapping to sRGB output
  • 3D Camera (location and direction) with FOV control
  • Load existing models and create scenes using shapes (cube, sphere, cone, hemisphere, pyramid, wedge and cylinder)
  • 3D Object Scale, Rotation and PointAt
  • Supports animated 3D models
  • Apply materials to 3D objects and set transparency
  • Create 3D terraformed scenes with the createTerrain function
  • Play music and sound effects. Built in synthesiser commands allow for live effects across all 16 channels. Change modulation, wave type, reverb and frequencies on the fly for programmable music compositions (think Commodore 64 style!)
  • Joy-Con support including Gyro, Accelerometer, HD Rumble and Analog sticks
  • Touch screen - up to ten points
  • Keyboard input accepted directly from screen and USB keyboards
  • File handling allowing for save data, level designs, music tracks etc. to be saved along-side program.
  • Text handling including strings, splicing, cursor positioning, size and colours
  • Signed Distance Field (SDF) font rendering - can render a single font at a wide range of sizes with no extra processing

  • Supports Docked & Undocked (can be checked in code)
  • Advanced binary commands (BitCount, BitFieldExtract, BitFieldInsert, BitGet, BitSet)
  • Automatic performance adjustment - automatically switch between performance modes to conserve battery or improve framerates based on rendering load
  • D etailed performance monitoring - independent measurements of CPU and GPU processing time give more insight into the program’s performance than a standard framerate measurement
