Alan suggests


The fact that the die is white at the beginning of your turn, and also white after you roll makes it unclear at a glance whether the die's current value is your actual move. Not sure what the solution is. Maybe dimming the die or displaying question marks on its faces in pre-roll mode, and the normal white with pips in post-roll mode?


A valid point.
The "Popomatic" function has a "Locked/Unlocked" value, so I can use that to decide when to draw v1 or v2.
I'll have a play, tomorrow, to decide on how best to show it.
Shading isn't easy, since Javascript (as of typing) can be slow at recolouring sprites, depending on the browser.
I'll have to have a good think about that.

As I was drifting off to sleep, my mind was racing for a decent Foldapuz concept for the week.
I thought about cards, and considered a grid of 5x5 cards.

In order to properly test my onscreen touch controls, I'm going to need some kind of quick playable game, so that's going to be today's task.

Something short and simple, but complex enough to really put the controls to the test.

After I release more and more games, player's try desperately to keep up!
Let's see what RSKGames thinks of today's Shoebox addition.

You can Play Grid of Conquest in the Shoebox, under the Group Games section.

@RSKGames


''Grid of Conquest'' immediately reminded me of ''Might of the Balls'' which was incidentally made almost on a similar date last year ''23rd July, 2018''.


Oh yeah! I'd actually forgotten about that game.

v1.0321 - Added the game "Grid of Conquest"


Try to fill up as much of the board in your colour as you can.
Normally you can't move over opponent's tiles, but if you earn a 6, you're allowed to move wherever you'd like.

There are additional green spots on the board. Reach these for a couple of extra points.

I spent last night rewriting my Pseudo Random code so that it works nicely in Javascript, for both Browsercade and Shoebox.

This project was titled "Power Source" when I started it, but the name doesn't fit the end result, so I'm going to have to change it.

I don't think I'll be getting "Game with balls" up and running within the next day-and-a-half or so, so instead, I'll make something completely different!!

But what game to make?

Welcome to a mini-deathmatch scenario.
It's just you and the aliens, in this classic twin-stick shooter.
How long will you survive?

If you've a Switch, and have downloaded PetitCom4 from the (Currently) Japan-Only eShop (vague instructions here), you can grab a copy of the game using the Public Key...

Latest Game : 18th July 2019 : Alien Deathmatch

Petit Computer 4, SmileBasic for Nintendo Switch, was released on 23rd of May, 2019 in the Japanese eShop.
If you'd like to give it a try, I've written this vague guide to get you started with getting the Japanese edition onto your none-Japanese Switch, as well as these additional blog posts.

I've also made the following downloads for the language.

I'll aim to post a new game every Friday, so watch out for them!

Lots of things to finish off, today, and not a lot of time to do it.
Tomorrow's another trip into town for another assessment, and that'll take away a lot of my regular Thursday "finishing things off" time, so ..
Today's the day for that!!

Yesterday I was playing with Alien sprites.
Today, I've been playing with Balls!

First off, don't get too excited!
This is currently only a simple physics test, and is in no way representative of the end result!
I'm actually aiming for a completely different game, first, but figured I might as well test the physics whilst I'm here.

So far, so good, although the physics are occasionally a little bit glitchy.
But..
.. Yeah, works fine!!

My Petit-Switch engine runs with nothing more than 16x16 pixel sprites, so if I'm going to create any form of Alien Deathmatch on there, I'm going to first have to redraw all the sprites.

I'm fairly content with how the touch controls seem to be working, now, and they're apparently functional on both iPad Wide and iPhone Tall displays.
The DPad can be a teensy bit large on iPad Tall, though, so I might yet still make an optional thumbstick mode instead.

Simple testing has been done on the menus, but "real world" testing won't be happening until there's a "real world" game to test it with.
..
I'd better get onto that, huh?

Crikey, I wasn't expecting this to be as hard as it is!
Reminder to developers : Just because it works with a mouse on your PC, doesn't mean it'll work well with a giant iPad screen or tiny iPhone screen, directly in your hands!

I think the rest of today will probably be about shuffling the buttons on the screen, to try to find something that feels just right..

Also, I might try making an analogue thing, instead of a dpad.

v1.29 - Added the maths puzzle Cross Sums. Also added ALL the Foldapuz games to the AGameAWeek archive.


A simple maths game, this week.
The solutions are already there, but what equations make up the solutions?
The nine boxes should be filled with the numbers 1 through 9, such that the results are accurate.

You can Play Cross Sums here, or wait for it to show up in the daily Foldapuz sheets.

Blandness has enveloped much of the site!
The complete Shoebox and Foldapuz collection are now added to the Archive, and that's how things are going to look, moving ahead.

In the coming weeks (hopefully!!) I'll be starting to add Browsercade games into the mix, too, so things should begin to get a bit more interesting to look at, but as I transition from making downloads to generating everything via Javascript, there's always going to be that bit where things get a bit .. .. Boring and web-looking!

My target for the first few Browsercade games will, then, be to try and make things as interesting to look at as I can, so that the icons and the screenshots, and even the Youtube clips, begin to look a bit more varied.

I'm now finding myself wondering if I should add the Petit Switch games into the archive, too..
Hmm..

Today's task is the same as the one long endless task that I did yesterday.
Yesterday was Foldapuz, today will be Shoebox.
Taking the screenshots, doing the logos and icons, uploading to the server, adding links, and hacking the database to change the date on the games.

Shouldn't take ALL DAY like it did yesterday, though, as I'm fairly sure I know what I'm doing.. .. Maybe!!

*ugh*
