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!

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.

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..."

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.

Amiga themed, like Boing!

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.

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!

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.

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..

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.

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!!

Nearly two whole years in, and you'd have thought that more people would've taken notice of the guy making AGameAWeek. I've moaned before about lack of interest, and I go in and out of these little phases.. It doesn't hurt, it's just a little saddening when there's not much interest.
This week, we've hit another "Wha!?" point.
Having finally got the Mac, and released no less than TEN entire Mac games within a week, I've had the lowest number of visits all year!...

Uhoh, the ratio's dropping!
No matter, this week's been SUPER busy, what with it being the week I finally got a Mac.
As seen the other day, I re-released <a href="http://AGameAWeek.com/2010/05/8-brand-new-freeware-mac-games/">8 of my games for Mac</a>. It's not just Steam on Mac!!! You can play UFO246, too!
Today sees a couple of extra bonuses.

With all the Mac stuff, I've not had a chance to do a new game.
NOOoooooo!!!!!!
I suppose I could rush something in the next 24 hours, but I'm much rather be playing with those extra trimming, and getting things a little nicer.

First off, Gravity Bombs. Not touched it yet, but it definitely needs at least one tweak. .. the Mac's "Superior" (bah) Magic Mouse has a lot going for it, but it also has an inability to right click whilst holding down the left mouse button. Which is prett...

A couple of days ago I posted my first test compilation of a Mac game.
I asked for test-based feedback, and absolutely nobody responded, whatsoever. We're just going to have to go for the "Worked on mine, *shrugs*" approach for these!!
Today, I'm rereleasing the game from Wednesday with a quick fix, and also releasing a bunch of other games that I've written in BlitzMax.
We've also got JNKPlat and Gravity Bombs to come, but I want to tweak those a little before I rerelease them.

Balls.
I was hoping that "Buy Mac = Make games for Mac", but apparently it's only "Buy Intel Mac = Make games for Intel Mac"
I have no idea what the current Intel vs PowerPC ratio is, but if you've got a PowerPC Mac, you're going to have to wait a wee bit longer.
Like, until I make a fortune!

Why will companies deliver things on time!?!
Today, my Mac was meant to be turning up.
It's not 3:30, the Mac isn't here, and even if it does turn up, I've no sodding time to DO anything, what with having to get ready for work, and all..
I was hoping to have the following achieved today.
