A few quick tweaks and a change to the "Game Over" parameters, which also required the drawing of a generic trophy icon!!

Accordion is now part of the ShoeBox, overwriting what used to be "Trails".

The game now brings up a little Trophy on the bottom left, if you've got less than 5 piles remaining (+ whatever's left in the draw deck).

The Accordion rules state that any leaps should be "over 2", not "over 1" like I had it with Trails, so in order to make things a little less frustrating, I've also included classic (left and right) Trail as the third game mode for Accordion. That probably won't help newcomers, but will at least my own frustration with the new rule, having gotten used to the old one!

Thanks to otherwise unknown Alan for the tip-off.

You can Play ShoeBox of Games here. Accordion is in the Card Games menu.

Awesome!! Thanks Alan!!

Note : I so very very very nearly deleted your comment because, without any additional text, it just looked so much like a standard spam-bot link! Sincere apologies if 100,000 other people have already sent me such replies, and I've been clicking the delete button on them all!!!

@RSKGames

The pixel art and the normal font in the menu screens seemed at odds with each other. All other screens I like the fonts that are used.

@RSKGames

The fonts also might need to be changed to a pixel art font to make it look good.


Early font-test prototype

I coded this a few weeks ago, to see if web-fonts did actually work properly on as many browsers as I could find, and ... for the most part, they seemed to work just fine, meaning I can technically create my own pixel-style font, upload it to the server and have it work without too many issues.

I've switched the icons on the ShoeBox menu from being "crappy scrawls" to being pixelart..
I personally think they look a little better, but what do you think?

Today's new addition to the ShoeBox is a simple anagram game.
Try to score as many points as you can from the rack of tiles that you have.
If you can't find a word, you can use the Swap button, but each one will use up one of your moves. (You have a limit of 3 swaps when playing timed mode)

As with Strings mode, you'll need to try to beat your previous highscore to count the game as a "Win"

You can Play Shoebox here, where you'll find Score Rack in the Word Games menu.

After the sheer failure of yesterday's audio-tweaks, my mind seemed to completely give up in frustration.

Today I'll be trying to come up with a few imaginative ideas for particles, but will probably run out of ideas after my usual few!

There are an awful lot of elements that it would be great to add to the Shoebox framework, but first a few additional framework chunks need to be integrated.

Stumbled upon a fascinating website, last night.
TimePix.uk shows old Ordnance Survey photos from in and around the Greater Manchester area.
If you can pinpoint the OS grid reference for your house, you can flick through a selection of their photos.

The classic "hop over to remove" solitaire game is now part of the Shoebox.



It's a simple enough game. Leap either horizontally or vertically over another counter, to remove it from the board.
Your task is to remove all but one counter from the board.

I wasn't aiming to make this game, but figured it would be a nice showcase for the Board functions.
As always, give it a try wherever you can, and be sure to let me know how you get on with it.

You can Play ShoeBox here. Leapfrog is in the Extras section.

As the board game engine slowly builds (really bloomin' slowly, this has been one heck of a challenge!!) I can now move "pieces" in and around the board.

It currently isn't a lot, and there's little or no rules, but it is at least functional.

Now to figure out why the whole thing scrolls so slowly at certain points.. Hmmm...
