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.

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.

A new game has appeared in the Shoebox.
..Not sure how well this one will go down!

You can Play Shoebox of Games here. You'll find Word Tubes amongst the Word games.

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.

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...

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 frustra...

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!!!
