Without using the word "Scrabble", how would you describe today's new Foldapuz puzzle?

Place a word onto the board which scores you the exact same as the target score.

Added Cross Target
Spent ages trying to find the best way to represent a Scrabble-Style board using only black ink! I should probably redo bits of it with grey, I think.. Hmm..
Anyway, it's a simple enough concept. You have a rack of tiles, and a specific target to hit. Try to score exactly that many points.

More work on Foldapuz, yesterday, as I did a whole lot more minor tweaks.

A whole lot of tweaks to Unfolded, to make it all a little more stable. Just minor background things, nothing too notable, but enough to keep things working!!
I've also rewritten the way the Alternating Maze is generated, and it now ends up taking about s full second to generate each puzzle. Eeek! Still, with the recent puzzle-cache functionality, that should be a little bit easier on the server.
The Alternating Maze mazes should now be a little more difficult to solve, with the paths hop...

The majority of the important bits of Foldapuz-Unfolded are now in place, and it's all now nicely playable.

Further tweaks to the Unfolded part of the site.
Things seem to be fairly functional now, and I took the time to jiggle the menu about a bit to make it more like the main page's layout.
I'll have to remember to keep both list of games the same, in the future, though, and will also need to keep the little icons updated, too.
*sigh* So much to keep track of.
This whole thing's started to get a little large!

For the past week or so, I've been gradually putting together a "On your mobile's browser" edition of Foldapuz.
Although there are still a few tweaks to be made to get things "just right", the site now appears to be functional enough to be tested.
If you'd like to test it, head to Unfolded, where you can hopefully figure most things out. (Assuming it works, in the first place!)
On the top right are page selection, alongside a puzzle selection.

Since the web-app has its own GUI along the top of the screen, I can't rely on the OS's pinch-to-zoom like I was hoping to.

Quite a productive night of Foldapuz tweaking last night.

Spent most of today trying to get multitouch pinch-to-zoom and scrolling to work. Bit of a pain in the arse, if I'm honest, although a lot of that is down to me trying to draw a scaled/cropped area of the Foldapuz page in the background.
The doodle itself "seems" to be scaling properly, but the background keeps squishing and glitching, and ...
RAWR!!

I've spent the past couple of days trying to get a doodle-box working, which users can then use to scribble over selected Foldapuz puzzles, on their mobile devices.

As I reached game #18 on Foldapuz, I realised that there's a very distinct possibility that I might yet manage to hit the current 62-game limit.

I did a major rewrite of the layout code, today, and it broke EVERYTHING!!! All "Yesterday's Solutions" are no longer valid for today, and all puzzles have been re-generated.
The reason is so that the layouts can be expanded to MANY more puzzle types.
Previously the Layout format was 8-characters, meaning you have up to 62 different puzzle types (A-Z, a-z, 0-9)
Although I'm not 100% sure I'll ever reach that limit, I figured it was probably a good idea to bump that number a li...

Fill the grid with the letters from the chosen word, ensuring each row, column and bordered cluster contains all five letters from the word.

Added Wordoku, which makes use of a pre-generated list of layouts. (From a self coded generator, created using BlitzMax)
2048 layouts are in the file, and on top of that you've got a random selection and then a random selection of missing tiles, so I think (!?) it should be plenty random for days/weeks/months to come.
But I'm also starting to get a little worried about whether the random number generator is doing a good enough job.
I might have to peek into that, to be sure, but it...

Find a path between the Start and End points which steps onto alternate coloured squares along the way.

Added Alternating Maze.
Make a path from the marked Start and End points, where each step is on an alternate coloured tile.
A nice and simple game that makes secondary use out of the normal Find A Path code, but tweaks it just enough to be different, and quite a bit harder, too.

Late last night I decided to add a bog-standard Chess puzzle to Foldapuz.

Place the remaining queens onto the board, so that they don't end up in the same row, column, or diagonal as any of the other pieces.

Added Eight Queens to the mix.
It's an age old puzzle that's existed in newspapers for as long as I can remember, and was alarmingly simple to add into the mix.
I'd like to do another Chess based puzzle, but it's proving a teensy bit more complex to generate, and I honestly don't think it's all that difficult to solve once it has done!
A puzzle for another day.
The Chess Pieces are drawn using the font "Chess Alpha", which I found on this page.

Fill the grid with X's and O's without connecting a line of four.
Each row and column should have 3 of each symbol.
