Looking at the stats, either everyone decided to leave when I released NeonPlat (Why?!) or folk started to get upset when I mentioned my attempts at iPhing Development.
I'm not sure which, but there's certainly been an awkward shift.
So, I'm going to split things up.
Even though my iPod Development won't be "AGameAWeek" (or at least, not for a long long while) I've still decided to call my new site AGameAWeek iDev. Because, what the heck, that's my brand now! I mi...

This week's game came out a whole lot better than I'd expected it to.
It's still not fantastic, but given that the game only just started to fall into place yesterday, it's not turned out so bad.

Still no name for the train game, so it's currently named "Jay's Train Game"! silly name!
It's a bit more gamey, now.
Some sort of cross between a proper sim-type thing, and a cheap arcade game! Odd.
Needs a few more "This is happening" type notifications, but it's all falling into place.

This week I've drawn a train, and some tracks, and am currently in the midst of desperately trying to get the train to behave upon said tracks.
So far, it's a stuggle!
Trying to get each carriage to turn at the right time, trying to account for the 30-odd track pieces that I've drawn, and trying not to make it look rubbish.

Not quite the 200 I was hoping for when I asked for levels the other week.
Only Shadow1w2 sent any in
Still, Shadow1w2 sent us 10 whole new fun mean levels to play with.
Meanwhile, I've been so busy with everything else that I hadn't much time to make any, so you'll have to make do with only 7 little levels that I made this morning! eek!
In addition, there's a fun new tile to play with. (only 1, mind.... and I struggled to ...

I made this about 4 or 5 days ago, and have had it as my desktop on about 3 different systems.
Oooh, it's luvly! (Even if I do say so myself)

There's a game-logic-error in the thing, but other than that it's a nice looking desktop.
It's a massive 3200x3200 pixels, but should scale nicely to your resolution... If...

Is it really 200, already?! Blimey!

The quickly made retrospective "look at what you've done" post..

I started writing games as a kid, went through school making silly games, and ended up with not-much-at-all to show for it.

My super copyright infringing retro game is back!
Take one part Pitfall, one part Tomb Raider, and mix in a little Indiana Jones, and this probably wouldn't be the first thing that springs to mind.
Never the less...

Mmm.. Editor!
You can play along inside the editor, just like in the last one, but things get a bit shrinkied this time.
The game scales down from 7*pixels to 4*pixels, so that a bunch of extra editor clickables can fit around the side.

The people at <a href="https://forum.curlysworldoffreeware.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2606">Curly's World of Freeware</a> suggested that the original Microbes game might've been a wee bit too crazy.

I just spent the past two hours trying to get my iPod game to pause when the user quits via Multitasking, or by the lock button, or whatever.
Trying to pass a variable (a single little integer) from one part of the program (AppDelegate) to another (ViewController) is probably one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do!
Good God, why do they have to make things so damn difficult!?
I mean, seriously, can't we go back to...

Hmm.. This iPhing dev is taking longer than my regular AGameAWeek stuff!
But I'm learning, and I'm practising, and I'm breaking and fixing things, too!
Today I got loading and saving to work, I got most of my menu working, and I even got the pause button going, too!
I've popped in the regular "Platdude Jingle", figured it'd do for the meantime, and..

This one didn't really turn out, so well.
It's a nice nature based bee game, with lovely floaty music, and some words.

You hit Tab to highlight the flower/bee, type it's unscrambled word into Barry's Belly, then hit return.

It's probably due to the sweltering heat, but my mind's not been very active today, and I've been really slow at getting anything done.
I got quite a lot of Barry the Spelling Bee done, and then decided to do a little work on Cardagain. But, boy, that got messy.
First off, I tried playing a bit of title music.
That just plain didn't happen!! After 2 hours, I scrapped the idea of title music!
Next up, the menu got half complete, and I figured I should add load/save m...

If you hadn't noticed, I've spent most of this week working on my iPhing game, so what happens to AGameAWeek!?

My mum had a couple of games of Cardagain, today!
That's how far along it's come!!
In less than a week, I've not only finally managed to get a grip on the language, I'm actually making a pretty damn good game, too!
In the next couple of days, there's still a few bits and pieces to work on.

.. as in "You have to pick the card, again", but also sounds like cardigan, so it's a nice fluffy name!!

Seems that the game idea is really starting to build up nicely.

Wait, that title's gone all weird and wonky... What's up with that!?!?
This week, I made TWO games!

I'm definitely sticking to that 90 minute thing, it's just that, right now, you can't see it!!
Yesterday I fixed up a few things over at Socoder.net. I added a nice upload gallery on the right, and fixed up a few little annoying bugs that needed tweaking.
Then, at 10pm, I decided to make a new game.
And the game went well.

On Friday I had a really rather productive day, and managed to build up my iPhing knowledge quite a fair bit.
I didn't have enough time to do a 90-minute thing, though, and am quite disappointed by that.
Saturday came and went, with most of the kitchen getting it's new ceiling up, and no 90-minutes being spent, again!

I've not done my "90 minute" challenge again, today.
Well, I did spend about 6 hours figuring out the iPod development stuff, but that wasn't the point of the 90 minute thing, really, was it!?
Anyhoo, no matter.
There's a silly "Vuvuzela Hero" picture going around the net, and I think it started (URL "https://blog.gaborit-d.com/vuvuzela-hero-legend-of-africa/">right here), although I'm not 100% sure.
