Everything's now nice and playable. It's a little bit difficult, but nothing you can't master with a little practice.

Todo-list contains things like giving the game a name.
I'd like to retain the "Fiery Fourth" name that Eikon started, but there's very little "Fiery Fourth" remaining in this game, if I'm honest!!
... And yet...

So, title, then the usual screenshots, compiles, etc.
The game should hopefully be finished and ready to go at some point tomorrow, but I might hold back to add extra bits and pieces. I guess we'll see after I playtest the thing, tonight!

And come up with a name..!

Added a bit of greenery to the background, this morning, but had to rejig a bit of the 3DS's code so that the scaled-up sprites looked nice and "Nearest Neighbour", instead of .. Like they did an hour ago!!

Pixel scaling FTW!

I'm going to have to add a trail to the player, though. It's extremely easy to lose track of where you are, when it all gets hectic.

But, yeah, looking good

This week's game now has audio, as well as oodles of death.

There's a nice new pool game available on iOS by @helvetica called Pocket Run Pool. (.com)

People keep asking me on Twitter what it's like, because apparently I'm some sort of super-picky gamer when it comes to Pool games.

My thoughts are that it's a really nice and fully formed "Ball" engine, that feel superb, and doesn't have of the annoying things that I usually tend to pick at when playing a Pool game.
It's almost as if @helvetica's been reading my many rants about rubbish Pool game issues, and has built his game up to avoid many of those bugbears.


View on YouTube

The game isn't "Proper Pool", it's more of an "Arcade Game based on Pool", in that you try to earn as many points as you can using the various onscreen numbers.

You have lives and a score counter, and things add up based on pocket-based bonuses.

It's really quite a nice game, and a nice set of physics, and I'd highly recommend it.

Go pot some!

Blockman Gets "Something"
Spike Dislike
JNKPlat 2018

Three classic AGameAWeek games that I really think should exist on the 3DS, more than anything.

An Alien Deathmatch would be nice, too

I've spent roughly a decade working in multiple scales, resolutions and ratios.
I've dealt with Android, with it's 57,000 different possible resolutions. I've handled iOS with portrait/landscape orientations. I've coped with Windows with a bazillion different possible window sizes..

But 3DS, with one single screen resolution!?!
AARGH!!!

Today's been a bit of a crazy day of maths, as I wrangled the numbers in order to get things to look vaguely accurate onscreen.
The player's no longer colliding with the floor correctly, but at least now the little squishable creatures are all behaving like they should.

Next to be added, a few powerups!

A lovely salad for dinner, but a single slice of cheese was enough to kick off a killer migraine!

All 3DS games have been recompiled, today, so they all now feature the most recent version of the framework, and are bundled into cia/3dsx packages.

Roland Eats a Stale Biscuit now has working music, On a Space Shooting Trail lets you fly further into deep space, and a couple of other minor fixes have been made along the way.

Enjoy, hacky folk!

You've probably not noticed, but the "Donate" button that was on the far right of the main menu has changed back into a "Patreon" button.
Last year, after the whole "Charging Patreons extra" business, I mostly abandoned the thing, removed all the links, and said "Sorry guys, no point in this" to the 3 Patreon subscribers.

They've stuck with me, though, and so I figured it was probably about time I started to give back a little something extra.

Today I've posted "Inside Jay's Notebook - 12".

The "Inside Jay's Notebook" series delves into my old notebook, page by page (and occasionally a few pages at a time) to see what mysteries of old I might find.

This week's page is all about "Green Xmas" from 2002, so if you'd like to see what other abandoned minigame ideas I had planned, you can see it right here! But you'll have to subscribe first!! OMG!WTF!?!

I'm still jumping between two projects, but neither one feels good and gamey.
I think I'm going to scrap this week, and just restart something entirely different, instead.
Bah, humbug.

I can't seem to get anywhere on this weeks game, as my mind is leaping between two different ideas.

This morning's a newsletter day, so that all needs doing first, but then I'll be heading into the game and trying to figure out exactly what style it's going to take.

I'm fairly sure I can get some kind of gameplay working for this week's game, but it'll be a case of finding the right balance between what the level generator can come up with, and the way the player controls.

I'm not 100% sure what's happening with these sprites, but an idea is forming in my head.

Currently it feels like I'm going to have to properly design some levels for this one, so if it takes a little longer, that'll be why.
Tonight, I'll be attempting to figure out a nice way to randomise some levels, but if I can't figure something out, then it'll be properly done as-of tomorrow.

In addition, I'm fairly sure I shouldn't call it "Lucy's Love Box", so expect that title to change!

I haven't got much planned for this week's game, yet.
I was first waiting to see if a Buffer Drawn Tilemap might be workable, but it seems that it's going to be a missing feature on 3DS.

Flappadiddle Doo - 3DS is now available as a complete 3DS .zip package, containing the .3dsx homebrew file, alongside a .cia file that can be installed directly into a hacked 3DS's frontend.

Hopefully it works ok. If you do try it, be sure to let me know.

Over at GBATemp, user bobdamnit suggested that it'd be better if I release my 3DS games as .CIA files, so they can be installed on the main 3DS menu instead of just the Homebrew Launcher.
