Lots of things to finish off, today, and not a lot of time to do it.
Tomorrow's another trip into town for another assessment, and that'll take away a lot of my regular Thursday "finishing things off" time, so ..
Today's the day for that!!

Yesterday I was playing with Alien sprites.
Today, I've been playing with Balls!

First off, don't get too excited!
This is currently only a simple physics test, and is in no way representative of the end result!
I'm actually aiming for a completely different game, first, but figured I might as well test the physics whilst I'm here.

So far, so good, although the physics are occasionally a little bit glitchy.
But..
.. Yeah, works fine!!

My Petit-Switch engine runs with nothing more than 16x16 pixel sprites, so if I'm going to create any form of Alien Deathmatch on there, I'm going to first have to redraw all the sprites.

I'm fairly content with how the touch controls seem to be working, now, and they're apparently functional on both iPad Wide and iPhone Tall displays.
The DPad can be a teensy bit large on iPad Tall, though, so I might yet still make an optional thumbstick mode instead.

Simple testing has been done on the menus, but "real world" testing won't be happening until there's a "real world" game to test it with.
..
I'd better get onto that, huh?

Crikey, I wasn't expecting this to be as hard as it is!
Reminder to developers : Just because it works with a mouse on your PC, doesn't mean it'll work well with a giant iPad screen or tiny iPhone screen, directly in your hands!

I think the rest of today will probably be about shuffling the buttons on the screen, to try to find something that feels just right..

Also, I might try making an analogue thing, instead of a dpad.

v1.29 - Added the maths puzzle Cross Sums. Also added ALL the Foldapuz games to the AGameAWeek archive.


A simple maths game, this week.
The solutions are already there, but what equations make up the solutions?
The nine boxes should be filled with the numbers 1 through 9, such that the results are accurate.

You can Play Cross Sums here, or wait for it to show up in the daily Foldapuz sheets.

1. I have a Foldapuz game to write!
2. Get back to doing those Touchscreen Controls for Browsercade.

That's enough for today.

Blandness has enveloped much of the site!
The complete Shoebox and Foldapuz collection are now added to the Archive, and that's how things are going to look, moving ahead.

In the coming weeks (hopefully!!) I'll be starting to add Browsercade games into the mix, too, so things should begin to get a bit more interesting to look at, but as I transition from making downloads to generating everything via Javascript, there's always going to be that bit where things get a bit .. .. Boring and web-looking!

My target for the first few Browsercade games will, then, be to try and make things as interesting to look at as I can, so that the icons and the screenshots, and even the Youtube clips, begin to look a bit more varied.

I'm now finding myself wondering if I should add the Petit Switch games into the archive, too..
Hmm..

Today's task is the same as the one long endless task that I did yesterday.
Yesterday was Foldapuz, today will be Shoebox.
Taking the screenshots, doing the logos and icons, uploading to the server, adding links, and hacking the database to change the date on the games.

Shouldn't take ALL DAY like it did yesterday, though, as I'm fairly sure I know what I'm doing.. .. Maybe!!

You might've noticed the top-bar of Recent Games is currently (slowly!) changing.

I've decided it's probably a good idea to start adding Foldapuz and Shoebox games in, with the intention of further adding Browsercade games to the archive once that's up and running.

Alan Suggests


There's always VirtualBox for a retro dev environment, although that doesn't make it easier to find the old versions of the dev kits.

v1.03 - Added Blackjack to the Card Game selection


Blackjack, Pontoon, 21. Call it what you will.
The aim is to reach as close as you can to 21, without going over.
Once you're done, AL will have a try, and whoever gets closest is the winner.

The first to reach three wins is declared the overall winner of the game.

You can Play Blackjack in the Card Games section of the Shoebox.

Started to make some progress with Touchscreen Controls, for Browsercade, today.
The hard part was getting this button to work..

Sifting through my giant todo list, I came across "Try out Electron", so I've done that, this morning..

After about half an hour of waiting for various things to install, and then running them, the result was actually really quite nice and fluid, and looked good.
I ran the electron-packer, and .. crikey, that takes a while, doesn't it..
Eventually, I ended up with what can only be described as "A folder", in which there were several million files all scrawled all over the place, including several .dll files.
I'm not sure exactly which of those are needed, but I tried running the exe in it's own directory and ERROR!!, so I guess everything, then..

In all, the download for Browsercade, as it currently is, will be 64.2Mb.

To put that into perspective, Browsercade is currently 1.03Mb
.. So.. Um..
Yeah, I don't think I'm going to be using that!!

I honestly can't fathom why Firefox's cache isn't doing what it's supposed to.

Latest Game : 11th July 2019 : NeonPlat

Petit Computer 4, SmileBasic for Nintendo Switch, was released on 23rd of May, 2019 in the Japanese eShop.
If you'd like to give it a try, I've written this vague guide to get you started with getting the Japanese edition onto your none-Japanese Switch, as well as these additional blog posts.

I've also made the following downloads for the language.

I'll aim to post a new game every Friday, so watch out for them!

It's the little things..

Like how the game isn't saving highscores, and the onscreen scores aren't quite readable enough, and the music doesn't end during the game-over screen, and ..
The little things..

Still haven't actually coded the game, yet, either! This is all Framework stuff.

Of course.. There's still one big issue to tackle..

Not sure if you still develop for OUYA but I play all of your games on there and I had a game idea that I wanted to share with you.


Oh, how I miss the OUYA.
