Same game, different system.
I started working on the Munky Portal thing this week, but it didn't really happen.
A shame.
No matter, because it gave me just enough time to remake Blockman Gets and pop it onto the DS.

I think that's everything!!
I added the last (earliest!) stuff into the archive today, and I think I've pretty much done all the PC stuff, now.

I've tried to come up with an interesting gameplay method, but nothing's immediately apparent.
I've still got a couple of ideas to try, but with only a day and a bit left to try it, it's not worth trying it now.
So, what else?
Well, I've not done a DS game for a while, let's try that.

Name : Thunderskull 4024
Idea : Sokoban-like game with hex-based grid.
OK, first off, not really sure what all the loving of Hexagons is about, but the word Hex is in the suggestion bag about 20-odd times!

Simple enough idea, not sure why it's not happened sooner.
There's a handful of little t-shirts online right now, and I'll be adding plenty more as time goes on.
And, maybe not just T-Shirts!!
Any requests?

And so another week trundles by.
I had hoped to finish off the ever elusive games, this week, (the RPG and the Patent Wars), but that doesn't appear to be happening at all.
Oh well.
If they happen, they happen. If not, carry on.

This week's Wednesday Workshop suggests we should make a Pacman game.
I've already done "Blockman Forever" this year, so I'm going to avoid retreading old ground.
Instead I'm going the Puzzle route.
Already I've got a lovely little set of graphics going, and am obviously reusing Blockman because.. .. well, why not!!!

Having done the DS and Windows editions of JNKSokoban and since the shooty game wasn't really happening, I figured, what the hey, might as well do a phone Sokoban, too.
(hmm.. I never did release the DS one, did I!?)
So, here's the phone one..

Trying to add puzzle elements into a shoot-em-up never seems to work out as well as the idea in your head.
I should know that by now!
And yet, this week, that's what I tried to do.

Name : redmoth
Idea : invent a new gambling/casino game
A few years ago (2004!!) I created Kasino Green. It was supposed to sit alongside StringyThings (a nice collection of Word games), and be a similarly nice collection of Casino games.

I was thinking of doing some sort of fruit machine thing, but I didn't really have any kind of plan for it, so it didn't really get off the ground.
Poor thing.
Maybe this week for that?

I'm sat here at 11pm on Sunday night, trying to think of a game for Tuesday.
It's not happening..
I've spent all week long adding games to the archive. That's to say, I've spent all week playing all my old games, and having a whale of a time..
I guess that has a disadvantage, being that I haven't coded jack all, all week.

I managed to get the Archive up to 100 games.
Counting subgames it's all the way up to 126! woot!
That's games from May 2006 up to now.
Not a bad count, but certainly not AGameAWeek.

The big-ass catalogue is now up to 68 games, and I've reached a bit of a stumbling block.
If you search for (URL "http://AGameAWeek.com/GameList.php?Find=multiple+games">"multiple games"), you'll find a few games that have more than one internal game.
Today I'm tweaking the engine so that it counts each of those seperately inside the nice ever growing total.
I wasn't going to do that, at first, but then I came across Platdude's Retro Collection, and decided to do it.
It'd be a sha...

If you've been keeping track, you'll have probably noticed an ever increasing number in the folders of my games.
These are the weeks of the Wednesday Workshop, and as you trace through my games, you'll see a whole lot of matches between the WW and the game's basic idea.
WW is fantastic for ideas, but sometimes things don't quite work out.
Take this image, from a basic engine, all the way back in week #142.. (That's 76 weeks ago!)

I was struggling to come up with an interesting game, this week, when my Mum decided to show me her latest highscore on Yahtzee.
New idea!

I've just spent the past 2 hours playing a batch of my old (latest!) games, grabbing screenies, and re-uploading them to a new Archive system.
It's not exactly very pretty yet, and you can't vote, or search, or.. .. um, anything!

If you're russian and you're actually realistically posting something, stick a little bit of english in there, so I can tell! There's over 100 bits of spam in russian, in my akismet filter, and I can't tell what's real and what isn't.. so.. It's all gonna go, 'cos I can't be bothered google-translating each and every bit of spam!!

I'd better get this game done, this week! It's getting a wee bit unruley. I need to pull in the ideas a bit and just get the game finalised.
Today I've been playing with the map again.

Seems to be that a fair amount of suggestions are monkey based thoughts, so I figured why not make a new monkey collection?
If you've an idea for a new monkey game, shove it below or in the suggestion box, and we'll have a good fiddle around with them all.
Gameplay wise, I'm thinking of perhaps creating a structure to a few games, release one a week and create a sort of evolving storyline that somehow manages to link the games together.
At this point, I've no idea if that'll work. But he...

Many many years ago (about 20?!) I played a game called Painter on a mate's BBC Micro.
Haven't played the thing since, but what the hey, here's the "Done in a day" remake!
I had intended to do a bigger project, and in fact that project is nearly done, but the lack of time made me postpone the larger project for a week, while it all gets done.
So, quicky game this week.

The ball from Pong, the gameplay from Tetris. The name seemed blindingly obvious to me.
But over the course of the past few days, I've received an inordinate number of complaints about the name.
It should be Breakout, it should be Asteroid, what!?

It's that unexpected time, where I randomly choose to rummage through the bundles of silly game ideas, and pluck out the best/worst!
Let's throw out the spam, and get started.
FFS, there's a lot of spam!

I've not had an LG Cookie for a few months, and instead picked up an LG Viewty.
The viewty's fine, no probs, but I met a few guys over at the MyLGCookie.com forum, and it was a nice experience, other than the hundreds of idiots there!
Alas, today, inexplicably, the MyLGCookie.com forum is no more.

A few weeks ago, someone who obviously hadn't played Centipong enough to enjoy it, decided to complain away on the comments.
Shitterwing's complaint was as follows
Omfg! I'd rather play Pong against Tetris (untahris), than th1s th1ngy
Now, I don't mind complaints, but there's two things wrong with that complaint.

Hello all, Welcome to year two!
This year, I'll be keeping track of the weeks, and games, and things like that, so we can tally up as we go along.
Week 1, Game 1, 1:1 ratio! Good stuff!
This week's game isn't a game. It's more of a toy.
