You know that thing where you click on clusters of coloured objects, to earn points, and try to remove all the objects...?
That's now in the ShoeBox. (Under Extras)



It's a simple enough game, but it's made me realise there's certain things lacking from the ShoeBox Framework, like Score Popups, and lovely particles and things.
Definitely going to have to add those over the next day or so, I reckon.

But, yeah, another game in the box!!

You can Play ShoeBox of Games here.

If you've any issues, as always, be sure to let me know.

First up, I've decided to just let "Trails" be "Trails", and stop worrying about what the actual game might possibly have really been.

I've finally gotten around to adding a new maths puzzle to the site, today.
Number Chain sees you filling in the operators so that the value at the top becomes the value at the bottom.

Incidentally, It's been almost an entire month since I last added to Foldapuz!
Must try harder..

Local Legend Sara Cox has written an autobiography of her life growing up.
The book is out, today, and will probably be the next of my "reading to fill my noggin with game ideas" books that I read.

You can buy Till the Cows Come Home from all good bookshops.

Shoebox has been limited to a 30fps mode, simply because initial tests showed my crappy laptop to suck at trying to run it at 60fps, and the fan kicks into gear!

I added another Solitaire game to the Shoebox, last night, but it was entirely from memory, and my memory's starting to fade!!

I've spent the past hour or so tweaking the "failed to load" functionality of the ShoeBox, and I *think* I've managed to get it to fail well, although.. Honestly, I won't know for sure until something does in fact break, and unlike most scenarios, I can't think of a quick and easy way to test this one!

If you see a dead shoebox, be sure to let me know!

Rest assured, however, that when it does now happen, a reset should no longer erase all of your Win/Play scores, just your current game's progress. I hope!!

Managed to get a little bit of coding done, today.
I've added a fairly swift anagram-finder to the word engine of Shoebox. The script can more or less search anagrams for about two sets of letters each second, so should be fairly useable once I start making a "generic unbranded crossword style word game" game.

The next part of that particular puzzle is trying to decide on scores for tiles.

Do I stick with "Stringy Things" tile scores, which they currently are in the game, or do I switch to using "Scrabble" tile scores so that the inevitable "generic unbranded crossword style word game" game relies on your personal memory of what values each of the tiles should have..
Hmmmm...

Things will probably be fairly quiet around here for the next few days.
As soon as I'm allowed to post about it, I will do.

Suffice to say, the past couple of days haven't exactly been the cheeriest at home, and it's been fairly rough sailing.

Normal service will resume ASAP

KORG Gadget 2 released, yesterday morning, on iOS, Mac and also now on Windows.
As such, I took a day off from coding, and instead spent the day playing with the iOS edition of the app.

I did a few tweaks to the framework, yesterday.

There's now a mute button in the pause/escape menu, which works.. (For a few hours, it was there, but did absolutely nothing!!)

Michael emailed, late last night, to complain about the scaling on one of the games.
"No," thought I, "That should be working fine.."

What should've been doable within a few short hours, ended up taking most of the day.
