Destructive Detonation


Concept
Blow up the dots, in the best Chain Reaction that you can.

Controls
Move around, hit fire!

Comments
This was the first game I made where I realised that .. perhaps it might've been better to add levels into some of these games.
Making this into something more like BoxSplodings, with lots of levels to complete, would've been better.
Unfortunately, having selectable levels would've meant having a proper titlescreen for each of the games, and I hadn't implimented that into the menu system.
Aw well.. Live and Learn!

Caterpillar Chaos


Concept
A good old fashioned Centipede clone!

Controls
Left and Right to move. Fire to .. um.. fire!

Comments
Fast and furious.
Missing the Spider, but there's oodles of deadly caterpillar bits to contend with.
I did consider doing another edition of "Centipong", but I feel like I've written about 20-odd versions of that over the past year or so!!

Bouncy Bobby


Concept
Bounce Bobby along the many floating blocks, as far as you can.

Controls
Left and Right to move.

Comments
Not a terrible game, but could be much better.
Hoppy Bobby was a much more fun game, but I wanted to try out actual controls with Bobby instead of just having one-button controls.
I think he actually works better with just the one button!!
If in future I decide to create a "new" Hoppy Bobby, I'll no doubt stick to the single-button mechanic, instead.

Abstract Action


Concept
J-Walker reborn without a musical style. Guide the Walker through the level and avoid all the evil deadly stuffs.

Controls
Left and Right to move.

Comments
Quite a nice little game.
Very much like "Sheep Goes Left/Right".
I prefer the sheep, I think, but if I ever feel like doing things a little different, J-Walker's a handy character/style to have at the ready!
Nothing too fancy, but reasonably nice, to kick things off.

RAWR!!

I'm really prepared for this year's Advent calendar. I've taken all the screenshots, I've written little comments for each game, I'm prepared!!
I'm Ready!!
I'm Sorted!!!

It's been nearly an entire week since I released the thing, and still the first unlock is a couple of days away. It's INSANE having to wait for my own games to unlock! I don't think I've ever had to do this, before.
Usually, once a game's done, I'll stick it online and be happy, and in many ways that's what's happened here..
Except the games aren't unlocked, and I'm having to keep silent lest I give anything away!
It's rediculous!!

I can only imagine how frustrating it is for Magazine/Blog game reviewers to have to hold in their opinions of games, due to NDA's and silly marketing rules and such.
Bah, humbug!

Each game has a 2 word title, starting with a different letter, in alphabetical order. A is unlocked, and we're a couple of days from unlocking Game B.
Z will be unlocked on Xmas Day.
And in just a few days time, I can start posting about the games!
o/yeayo/

Merry Xmas, players!

Merry Christmas!!

.... What do you mean, too early!?
Well, ok, maybe it is..
In fact, as of right now, it's exactly one entire month early!
But let's not let that get in the way.
Introducing "Alpha Collexion"

In 2 weeks time, I'll be releasing this year's Advent Calendar, titled "Alpha Collexion" (so that after Xmas, it's still relevant, and is just as playable!)

400-logo

In order that the collexion is DEFINITELY in the OUYA store by Dec 1st, I'm going to have to upload it for OUYA Review in about one week's time, which gives me just the next 7 days to finish off all the games.
I'm currently 10 games from my target. Eeek!



1 week : 10 games : Can I do it?!!
Find out, Dec 1st!

It's alarming, how many people see "AGameAWeek", and imagine it's a haven for game reviews.
.. They simply can't wrap their head around the idea of a single guy actually CREATING AGameAWeek!!!

Ok, so, I need a new archive.
It's been a good number of years since I originally created the Jayenkai Archive, and although the software's lasted through a fair number of rethemes, and a fair number of enhancements over the years, it all still pretty much has the exact same issues that it did on day one.Read More

Regular AGameAWeek service will resume shortly.
The Advent collection will be released on Dec 1st
In the meantime, please enjoy the huge variety of games, previously released, available in the Archive.

Thank You for staying with AGameAWeek during this short break.

More to come.

Getting a bit panic'y now!
So far I've got 7.5 games finished for the Advent calendar, which means I have about 25 days to complete around about 19 games.
It's going to be scarily close.

Meanwhile, I found myself wondering...
What would Platdude look like, if turned into one of these over-size-head Pop Vinyl figure things....

Not sure how useful this'll be, but you now have a new way to chat about AGameAWeek..
Facebook Rooms is a new app on iOS, and I'm sure it's available via other methods, otherwise it's a great big waste of time!!

The great online site, Rock, Paper, Shotgun seem to have randomly decided to feature a Platdude game, which is odd, given that they've picked the most frustratingly difficult one!!

Platdude in a Bit of a Spin has been picked for their frontpage!

Hurray for Platdude!!

During these later months of the year, whilst I'm busying away with my Advent calendar collection, there's going to be a slight delay in the usual AGameAWeek pace of things.
Rest assured, I'm still coding, and there will be a nice end-result, hopefully!!

In the meantime, enjoy this lovely picture.

Each year, time dependent, I like to do something special over Xmas, and this year I've opted to start early.
If I want a whole Xmas Collection ready on the OUYA (And possibly iOS Store) in time, I need to get onto it quickly enough to have it finished, uploaded, and passed through review, in time for Xmas.
And, if it's an Advent Calendar, then it needs to be ready even earlier, for Dec 1st.
Yikes!!

I started the planning stages of this thing a couple of months ago, when I asked folk on both Socoder and the OUYAForum to doodle me some sprites. I got a handful of submissions, but it seems like most of the art in the game will be my usual self-created odd-style standard
Last week I started work on the engine. I took my classic framework, wrote a couple of tools to merge together the submitted spritesheets, added a multi-game system, and got most of the menu working nicely.
The engine can cope with a whole host of minigames, and that'll be what I'm creating.
I'll be making 26 minigames, each with their own generic high score/last score boards, and then it'll unlock one game for the first 26 days of December. .. Assuming I can make 26 games in that time!!

400_B_Menu

After the 26th December, all the games will remain unlocked (assuming of course Monkey's Date function works the way it's supposed to!!!) so I'll be trying to create the games without too much of a "Xmas-Specific" style. In fact, coming up with a name for this collection is proving to be slightly tricky. On the one hand I'd love to call it "Platdude's Advent Collection", or similar, but then it wouldn't make sense after Xmas. I'll probably go for "AGameAWeek's Retro Collection" or something.. *shrugs*

The next couple of weeks will be mostly AGameAWeek free, since I'll be focussing on this.
I'll probably still release something, but I'm not entirely sure what. We'll have to wait and see what turns up.
Meanwhile, I might be posting random screenshots, or vine clips, so look out for those along the way.

Wish me luck.

And Merry Christmas

On previous releases of "Arcade Slots" games, people have consistently whinged that the games are "TOOOOOO RANDOM!!!". They then inexplicably ignore the actual game, and get stuck in a "OMG! ITS RANDOM!" loop, whereby they can't seem to enjoy the games at all.
Of COURSE the games are Random! They're supposed to be random! It's a flamin' Slot Machine.. That's the whole bloomin' point of slot machines!

.. But people can't seem to let go, so this time around I opted to pre-empt their whinging by adding a small disclaimer to "A Bit of a Spin".

Yup.. That'll do nicely!
