I've just spent the past couple of hours trying to fix a really stupid bug in the game logic.
All of a sudden, enemy rooks could leap over your pieces.
I looked into the code, and ... Yeah, I can see how that's happening.

The issue being, of course, that to fix it I'd need to rewrite a significant chunk of the movement code, and probably break a whole bunch of other things along the way.

I don't often give up on a project due to complexities like this.
Usually if I DO give up, its because the game has no real substance, but I do believe this could be a good game, if my head wasn't in such a weird space, right now.

I'm all puzzled out, and I think my head needs a simpler project to work on, until it's feeling less funky than it currently does.

2 weeks in ... Project scrapped.
Sorry, everyone.

All the focus for this game has been on its balancing, and I've barely touched the graphical style at all.

Today's tweaks have finally made the Chess game a bit more lively.

A bit more fiddling and, hopefully, I should be able to get the difficulty back to something fairly decent.
Right now it's still a little bland, and games can carry on for far too long without much of a threat, so a little more "look ahead" and things should be golden!

This is a test.

I'm not sure how compatible the new RSS feed is going to be, but if you'd like to try it out in your RSS Reader of Choice, then the url is rss.xml, which is a fairly obvious choice for rss feed urls, I think.

The link has been added down at the very bottom right of the site, and is also tagged in the header, near all those bloomin' icons!

Let me know how it goes.

RSS Readers


InoReader seems the nicest of the webbased readers that I've found in my travels.
Simple enough to register using your Google account, and using the "Card View" gives a lovely enough presentation.

There's also Feedly.com which seems ok, but doesn't appear to be updating the feed after its initial read!!

For a Chrome Extension (and a few other uses) the minimal Feeder.co seems nice and fast, and not too overwhelming. There's a price tag if you want to avoid Adverts, though.. So.. I'm not sure how that works when running as a browser extension. hmmm...

Feel free to

Got an email, this morning, from someone who was slightly perturbed by the fact that my RSS hasn't updated since 8/26/2017.

When I switched from using Wordpress to my own blog script, one of the lost features was RSS. Mostly because I was too lazy to code a feed, but also because I wasn't sure that anyone actually still used RSS.

This morning's email suggests that, somewhere in the world, at least one person still reads their RSS feeds once every couple of years.

So, today I'll probably look into ways to generate a feed, though it would probably be far from the world's most ideal RSS feed.. But something's better than nothing, right?!.

Added a new game, Scrambled Grid, to the fold.
It's been a good week or so since I last added anything to Foldapuz, so I decided to spend a bit of time with the game, tonight.
A few days ago, I found a lovely function in PHP which would allow me to do quick Anagram-Tests, and so I made full use of that, today.
A set of 5 words are chosen at random, and shuffled about until an anagram can be found connecting them all together.

Your challenge is to unscramble all 5 of the 6 letter words, and place them into the grid so that the 5-letter word fits in its place on the grid.

This morning's work on the Chess game has resulted in things being a lot more playable.

The game is now "working", and can be played fairly well.
The one "ever so slight" issue is that it's currently hard as nails!!

OK, the engine's now at about 75%. The opponent AI isn't quite right, and needs a little extra tweaking, but for the most part the actual logic of the game is in place.

Didn't get an awful lot of coding done, yesterday.

My mind was unsure whether to make the Chess game into a puzzle or an action game, and it was as though that decision clogged up my mind to the point where I didn't actually do anything at all!!

Added Flowers

A variety of basic flowers to fill up a sprite-based garden with.
There are currently only Daisy and Rose type drawing styles, but I'm sure I'll come up with more, later.

Whilst doing Foldapuz, I added in a Chess Font which helped make a couple of nice chess puzzles for the site.

Both ideas seem to suit pen'n'paper quite well, but another idea I had is definitely more of a Videogame Logic game.

I still kinda want to do that Puzzobomb, but without a good generator it's all but failed, already.
So, what else then?
