Spent all day trying to work out a nice way to generate these kinds of puzzles, and I'm fairly certain that the current method works to within a decent standard.

The general gist will be that you need to walk out a path between the two similar coloured blobs, and that links them up.
A typical colour-path sort of thing.

As stated earlier, I've worked hard to get the level generator to come up with the most fiendish levels possible, but it also makes some nice simpler levels that can be used to ease the player in.

Level difficulty will be based on the number of steps the generator took to make the puzzle, (numbers shown in the image.. You should be able to roughly follow the path it took) along with how many colours there are, and also how much space is left in the level un-stepped.
The generator's quite powerful in that respect.

Also, note that once a "Link" is made, the AI player doesn't step back over the top of the tile, so it gets harder the more you get through the level.

Next up.. Making the game to go with it!!

Last month, I subscribed to the ZenPop Ramen selection.
The box appears, then over the coming weeks, I review each of the noodles.
Last month's collection can be found in this SoCoder Thread, but I figured it might be something entertaining to crosspost here, too.

The repointers are nearly done with the larger side wall, and will be starting on the back wall either later today, or tomorrow.
The noise is still echoing through my head, and I'm still finding it extremely difficult to code.
But it's nearly over.

Unfortunately, game code is still coming along at a slow pace.

Today is day three of getting the house repointed, and it's really not helping my code-mood in the slightest.

Yesterday, as I watched the empty scoreboards once more, I decided it was probably about time I "switched them on" properly.

A silly game title popped into my head, late last night, and I've been trying to figure out what sort of game it might be.

Someone over on the GBATemp forums mentioned Centipong being one of their favourites of my DS Homebrew collection.

To be honest, I never did solve the "What Comes Next" issue with that.

I got all of the compiles done, late last night, but was too tired to then upload everything, so that'll be today's task.
Uploading isn't so easy, nowadays, as I've oodles of places to upload to.

Here, GameJolt, Itch.io, and then crossposting links to SoCoder and GBATemp, each one with their own set of images that need posted, and other such gubbins.

I'm now happy that the bats are balanced well enough for the gameplay to be nice and playable.

Had a good play on both Desktop and 3DS and things seem to be running smoothly enough.
The graphics on 3DS are a bit smooshed, but .. They're passable. I think.. Maybe!

Todo : Needs a background graphic of sorts, and then logo, icons, etc..

Should be ready in the next day or two.

This week's game is currently alarmingly difficult.
With all the little bats floating around inside the cramped space, it can be extremely difficult to make simple moves without getting caught out.

Yeah, that's kinda fun!!

Leaping around, dropping bombs and blowing up boxes!
Fun..

Tonight I added enemies in, and .. Oh, boy, is it hard!!!

I think tomorrow will be all about balancing things out.

I spent most of yesterday struggling to put together a SoCoder Newsletter for this week, since I'd mostly neglected it due to watching all the E3 stuff.

Meanwhile the gamedev is pretty much in the same situation it was on Tuesday, so I really need to focus on that, today.

Don't you love it when, after a recent Update, Windows always opens the browser up. You always expect the page it leads you to will be full of actual information about what the windows update just did.
..
But, no.
It never does.
It's always the exact same generic "Windows Help" page that tell you absolutely nothing.

After this morning's update, I could barely read the generic Windows Help page, because my laptop's screen was too dark.
Hmm...

I didn't get an awful lot of gameplay implemented into this week's game, yesterday, but the basic bits and pieces are in the engine.

I've decided another remake's in order, and am focusing on NeoPlat. Not NeonPlat, the happy neon Desktop game, but NeoPlatDS, the little Original DS game about landing on floors, or something!!
