You're probably wondering, by now, with all this wonderful "Monkey" stuff that I've been banging on about for the past month, where the heck my iOS offerings are.
Well, while it's true that Monkey does indeed make the coding a heck of a lot easier, there's still another matter to attend to.
The dreaded "iTunes Connect" area! ARGH!!!!
You've probably read enough of my rants to know that iDev isn't easy.
There are licenses to deal with. "Provision" codes, Certificates, all manner of s...

I don't know..
I was playing around in PaintShopPro, and stumbled upon a nice little silly effect for backgrounds.
This image has no purpose whatsoever, but it quite nice, so.. um.. yeah, that!!

Hey, Nintendo, take a look at the title of this website. Guess what I'm doing.. Single-handedly, too, I might add.
You're a company. You're a BIG company.

Next week's AGameAWeek is already in the works. Yet another remake, this time of a game that doesn't quite appear to run as well as it used to.
<a href="http://AGameAWeek.com/GameList.php?ShowJust=56">The Heist</a> was coded in August 2008, and does still run on modern PCs. The thing is, though, it runs at about 30fps on most of my current systems.
I'm not really sure why this is, and have tried a couple of things to get it up to speed, but nothing seems to be doing the...

If you're a regular AGameAWeek follower, you'll probably be all too aware of the "It doesn't always work" rule.
For those that are new, here's a great example.

You know what I hate?
You might've noticed that very few of my games include icons.
Not only do I hate having to draw icons, I also hate having to create 70,000 bazillion different sizes for every sodding size that might be needed.

I'm at odds over this one.
The first possible launch date is Feb 23rd.
Feb 23rd is my birthday, and for the last two years, has also been SpikeDislike=FREE Day on iOS.
It'd be nice to have SpikeDislike2 Day on the same day, but then I'd also need to get it onto the AppStore by that date, and ... that's a wee bit tricky!
It'd mean I'd have to get the iOS App submitted by around about this time next week, and .. yikes. that's cutting it a bit close, especi...

Hello all.
If you're a regular reader, prepare to be marginally disappointed.
Today's release is NOT for you
Today I'm releasing a private beta edition of SpikeDislike2 (currently for Windows or Android) to people who would like to blog about it, and help publicise it's existence.

I've a few simple ideas in mind, and may be asking for additional ideas in the future, if I start running out!
Meanwhile, here's the first to be fully integrated, and playable, and kinda fun.

Yesterday I started my first "bigger" project of the year. These are the games that I know are going to take a little more than the usual week to complete.
Well, I say that, but I've actually managed to achieve a staggering amount of work in the space of only two days!

I've yet to figure out how to solve TamToucan's X/Y Tilt issue, but a couple of gripes have already been tweaked.
<a href="https://agameaweek.com/?Game=282">C3ntipong Test Edition for Android - Version 2!</a>
The paddle, for starters, is now set much further up the screen. This may result in a slightly harder game, but at least your finger won't be in the way! (or at least, it shouldn't be, unless you have a really really tiny phone, or gigantic finger!)

The last time I posted this game, back in late 2010, it was available on Windows, Linux, MacOSX and even on iOS!

OK, folk are getting intrigued as to how all of this is working, and how nice the Monkey language is to work with, so in the spirit of not being a complete and total git, here's the complete everything that there is so far..

The Download

Framework Downloads have been removed due to lack of updates!
I've also left the html5 build intact, so you can give it a little run if you don't have Monkey installed. (I think!)
Should be as simple as going into the .build folder, t...

So, here we go again.
We're up to Year 5, and hopefully we'll get a full year out of it, this year (nnngh).
With Monkey, we get a chance to go back over our previous games, and remake them for a new audience, with iOS, Android and Browser based versions. I expect this will prove to be an exciting year.
Given that we can play at showing off, what games do you think would work best, and adapt well to the new touchy/mouse based gameplay options?
Or, what games could prove to be an obsc...

I've been delaying a large list of things, but as I continue to make great strides with Monkey, those tough bits are getting ever so close.
Here's what needs doing, as well as explanations as to why they're tough..
