You know when you're at the end of the day, and do backups and things, and forget that you weren't quite yet finished doing the Player Selection Screen, but it accidentally gets uploaded anyway...?
That!

Shoebox Highlights
Since RSKGames asked for such a thing, there's now a single quick-ish loading page, which contains tiny snippets of update news, along with links to the actual blog post that accompanies them.
I'll probably do the Foldapuz and JNKsg equivilants tomorrow, as it took absolutely ages to find the posts, and get all those little highlight messages written!

I was very lucky that in my first game I did not get into any snake tiles and got the help of one ladder tile to reach near the end zone much before the AI.
Yup, this is a game 100% down to luck.
I'd like to perhaps remove the sheer-luck, by making the moves maybe Card based, or something? Not quite sure how well that would work, and it honestly wouldn't be "Snakes and Ladders" anymore.
So.. Perhaps another type of board game in the future?

If you're a frequent reloader of Shoebox of Games, you might've noticed the sounds of the cards being switched out, about half-a-dozen times, over the course of yesterday.

The gfx in the credits screen has a very good looking swirling ghost effect.
And what a lovely effect it is!

I spent most of last night trying various microphone tweaks in order to get just the right sound.

OK, time to replace that Credits screen. I don't like it..

I didn't even bother giving it a proper name!! You already know what this game is.

You can Play Shoebox of Games here, and you'll find Match-3 alongside Same Game, in the Extras section.

Match sets of three or more icons, horizontally or vertically. Swipe the tiles across to make matches, whilst trying not to run out of time.

I spent most of yesterday doing some techy reading, and planning ahead for Shoebox's future.

Not really sure where yesterday's Strings game came from! I wasn't expecting to code anything at all, but I think my Sunday Day-Off left me clambering to code something.

Played a few times and managed to beat the AI half the times. Only weird thing I noticed is that when player wins sometimes both the orange and some blue pieces nearby seem to animate.
Indeed. The flashing is done by the AI. Where the AI sees a possible win, it triggers the flashing, and occasionally it bleeds through into weird areas.

The "Four in-a Row" AL has been upgraded a little, this morning.
It's not "Evil", and can still be beaten every other game, but it's making less mistakes than it was, earlier.
Not a complete rewrite of the AI, but a fairly significant redoing of the way that the AI finds a final placement.

Build word within the tubes using the letters supplied in the drop-tube.
You'll need to build words up, backwards, so that they read from top to bottom.

Mere hours after his first appearance, and Michael Fernie's relative (Rebecca) has submitted the first FanArt of the Shoebox's AI buddy, AL.


Absolutely awesome!
Thank you, Rebecca!

This morning, I posted a picture with Greenie at the side of the Four in-a Row board, and wondered if I should attempt to integrate Greenie into the game, somehow.

The latest sounds have been added to the Shoebox framework, along with a bunch of tweaks to various games to account for the new sounds.
In addition, I've now added a trashcan to the game selection screen, which will erase the scores for the selected game mode. Tap it on the bottom right, then tap again on the bottom left, to erase your scores.
This is most useful when playing the two-player form of Four in-a Row, as you can reset whenever you need to.

I'll be trying to tweak the audio engine again, today, to see if I can do 0.25-second length sounds, and have them play on all the usual browser targets.
