I spent about 3 or 4 hours playing around with KORG Gadget, last night, and managed to create another couple of ALChoons for future Friday postage.

H~S~R's coming along, nice and slowly.
As I add each new little thing, I spend about an hour playing with the lovely swooshy swirlyness of it.
Mmmm..

The whole Texture-Buffer-Blurry thing has really added some niceness to the game.
And, just for good measure, you can turn off the texture section. So, if the game's not quite up to speed, turn off the blur, and the game carries on without it.

Every element in the game has 2 layers. The Sprite, and the line.
Lines are left in the background, to swooshy away, whilst the sprites are overlaid on top. (but, not actually on top, due to the complexities of my buffer system!) It means that whenever you add the blurryness, only the lines and swooshies are actually blurred.
You still get nice crisp clear game gameplay, but you also get a nice blurring background, too.
And with all the overly blurryness of it, it all blends together, a bit like how the old Geiss screensaver does it, with single pixels lines slowly blending into the overall niceness of the background.

Made a Yahtzee Clone, today.
To keep things as legal as possible, the scoring is marginally different, so be sure to read through the rules to get to grips with the exact sets of dice that you can get points for.

You can play Shoebox of Games here. "Dice Rolls" can be found in the new "Misc" section, where I've shifted Leapfrog to, so be aware of that.
In my head, Misc = "Can be played in reality" whereas Extra = "Probably a little bit too videogamey to count as a proper ShoeBox game!"

As always, if there are any bugs, be sure to let me know.

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.
