I'm halfway through NeonPlat 2, and would you believe it, I have a dream about Invisible Munky 2!
FFS, how annoying is that!?
Now I've another gameplay idea banging away in my head, and it actually seems nice and playable, too!
Bah...

I'll have to set it aside, and focus on the task at hand.

For the sake of comparison..

NeonPlat used to be this.

NeoNeonPlat is (currently!) this..

Blimey!

This Tuesday : NeonPlat 2 / NeoNeonPlat / Whatever it's called!
Next Tuesday : Could very well be Invisible Munky 2 (although, I've stopped counting the number of times I've said that. They very rarely work out!)

I'm still not sure what I'm calling this release, but NeoNeonPlat has been stuck in my head for a couple of days. Seems to fit. Other suggestions are welcome.

Meanwhile, multiplayer (one system) is working great, and I'm starting to formulate how the scoring will all work out.
There are three different baddies, the white platforms are back, and I'm starting to build up a nice progressing difficulty system.

It's coming along nicely!!!

I'd planned to do my regular iPhing development learning thing today, but.
Meh, bad head, can't think, not in the mood..

Never mind..

Instead, I'm playing about with NeonPlat2.


Blimey, where did that come from!?!

I've been doodling sprites for the past couple of days, and today, just like the last time that I did NeonPlat, everything kinda slotted into place in a nice wonderful way.
If you're very good at playing Where's Wally/Waldo, you'll probably have noticed that there's two NeonPlat's in that picture.

Both are equal.

Both can be played!

Wootsocks!

I could even add more.
But, first, I need to decide how best to cope with two/more characters.

Do I create an all-new character?
Do I stick with Platdude but recolour him?
I dunno.

Thoughts?!

And... if you're in an artistic mood, design me a new character!
They might be playable, they might be bad guys, they might even be big-ass boss characters!
Who knows!!

You have 48x48 pixels to play with, so that I can add the blur afterwards, and try to stick to single-pixel-wide lines, so it all blends in.

Ta muchly!! (And, get it done quick!!!)

"What ever happened to midis that we used to have in games,
and all the little tunes we used to hear whilst we were playing Doom.
Whenever we played we would forget about the quality,
because we were too busy shooting Demons in the face with ammo..."

: Download

.. Then I couldn't think of any more lyrics.
Never mind, the tune was created, and sat on my hard drive for about a year or two.

Obviously titled FM because it sounds like a classic FM midi file!

Later on, I decided to use it on my JNKx15 video, but it needed upped a wee bit.

: Download

A short tweak in tempo, some added layers of instrumentation, and the melody eventually fit nicely.
Luvly stuff..

A proper week, this week. Waiting for a 6 hour render gave me plenty of time to play about, and I think I came up with some niceties, this week.

Game : Waiting : COME ON, ALREADY!
Amiga themed, like Boing!

Game : Lemmings : Just Dig
Again, thinking Amiga! Plenty of bugs in this one, though, so be careful!



Music : Twisted Pigs : Up, Over, Under, Forever
This was one of those Auto-Title things, so no need to worry about my mental state

Comic : Random : Duck meets Dino in an epic SciFi tale
although... You could probably worry about my mental state after this one!

Having pretty much messed up this week's game, I figured it'd be a better idea to go for the Tried and Tested, this week.
So, without having to think too hard, it's time for NeonPlat 2!

First job is the art. All nice and hi-res, while still being small enogh to fit as much onscreen as I can.

Level Progression should be dealt with, and a couple more characters, too, so suggestions for those are welcome.

I'll keep you updated, as the game builds!

An update as the game builds..

This week's game didn't quite turn out as well as expected.
We'll call this week a fail, I think!

Still, you could probably play it once, if you could be bothered, and then delete it in a slight rage that you played something that wasn't all that good!


Amiga's Boing Ball bounces around the platform level, and collects Amiga Ticks.
Every so often, time loops around, and you'll find yourself similarly be bouncing around, alongside yourself.
Collect 75% of the ticks to complete the level, and don't accidentally touch yourself, 'cos that'll kill you.
That's pretty much it!

I was kinda hoping it might magically become fun (see Blockman Gets, Microbes, Centipong, RetroRaider, etc!) but nothing really happened, and the game continued to be a bit dull.
A shame.


It's full of AmigaLuv, though!!

You can grab it over at The Jayenkai Archive for Windows, Linux and Mac. But not Amiga

I'll try better next week!

Not sure what game this is, but I made the Amiga Boing Ball, slapped it into a bricky map, and let it bounce about a bit.


*shrugs*

I'll keep bashing the keys, and see what comes out the other side!

Hurray for random game making!!

When I was a kid, I used to love playing quiz games. Blockbusters, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, loads of great 8/16-bit quiz games.
They all had one thing in common..
They let you actually TRY to answer them.

Nowadays, it seems that every damn quiz, even Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, has become a stupid sodding Multiple Choice quiz, where you don't have to think, and type.. Instead resorting to a "Buzz - Pick one" style of gameplay that really ruins the whole game for me..
Bloody things.

So, Might as well give this a go.

If anyone out there knows of a humongous archive of Q'n'A's I might be able to use, let me know!

Maybe in a few weeks time? *shrugs*

iPhing "View Based" Jumpstart

A series of tutorials that will allow old-style coders to quickly grasp the bits and pieces they need, to develop games for iPod/iPhone/iPad (iPhings)

Part One : Tilemap
Part Two : Touching
I've written this in near-realtime, so where I look like I'm freaking out about the language, I am actually freaking out about the language.
Feel free to nitpick all the many faults that probably appear within this week's little adventure!! Together, we can make my phings better!

Busy/Lazy, one or the other, or perhaps a bit of both.

I have at least posted a little "Eat the Objects" game, but it's not much. Sorry!
Maybe next week.

Meanwhile, today's Thursday, so it's back to learning iPhing dev. I'll let you know how that turns out later on, and maybe post tutorial #2.

This week we're playing with Penises!
A remake of a classic test game, that never really went anywhere.

The game is only about half done, since I pretty much rushed the whole thing yesterday, but it has 10 nice levels, and should hopefully be a good start.


Click the penises to turn them around, and put their little hats on to give them a skill.
Lovely stuff.

Continued Penis Extensions will be based upon how much you love it.
The more I know you want it, the bigger it'll get.


Penis Extension comes on Windows, Linux and Mac, and the game is available from The Jayenkai Archive.
Enjoy!

Aaaah, lovely weather!

As Dan Bull sang this week, it's wonderful weather for gaming, and even better if the game is Scrabble!
And that's about all I've done. Alongside animating this weeks main character and drawing my default ground tiles, I've not really done a whole lot.
The game is due on Tuesday. Wish me luck!!

Blimey, that didn't take too long.

Well, it DID, but it took significantly less time than I thought it would.

So far, we've had the following..
...

Day 1. (Last Wednesday)
Do What?!
Wha.!.!
Euww.. Visual stuff.. Eeek!
Argh!!


Day 2. (Thursday)
Pissed about with other stuff on my Mac, in a vain attempt to ignore the fact that I had to learn stuff.

Days 3-7. (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon-Tue)
Back to AGameAWeek, recompiling all the Blitz stuff, uploading those, fixing up JNKPlat and Gravity Bombs.

---

It seems that, no matter how much I want to, I don't actually have all that much iPhing time. AGameAWeek will always suck up most of my time. Bah!
That, and being cramped onto my only USB keyboard seems to have completely bollocksed up my hand. Either that or it's the MagicMouse being all flat.. *shrugs*

---

Anyhoo, let's move onto week 2.

Day 1. (yesterday)
Attempt to understand OpenGL.


Manage to create my usual set of graphical test functions. (CLS, SetCol, SetRot, SetScale, SetAlpha, DrawRect)
Get a few squares onscreen, and realise that I'm going to have that strange anti-aliasing issue that I had with Blitz3D. That is to say, even with my best attempt at drawing things perfectly straight, the grid I drew didn't quite end up actually being perfectly straight.

This is a floating point issue, and will just end up being annoying. It's a case of trying to get the right set of numbers to look good on the screen.
Maybe a later attempt might fix that, but in the meantime I'm going to try to piss about with that "view" mode, instead. eugh..

Day 2. Today's plan.
Piss about with that "eeuw, Visual, eek!" mode, whilst trying to do my damned best to ignore ever having to open up the horrible bloody visual based editor.
The plan, to create a grid of tiles onscreen, let the player tap them, and maybe have a sprite bobbing around on top.
...
Wish me luck!!!
I'll let you know!
