PreRelease - A bare test edition is posted.[/highlight]

The gradient background in the above screenshot has been drawn to a secondary canvas, which is then redrawn onto the main canvas.
This seems to work reasonably well, and should hopefully allow for a fair number of generated backgrounds and other such effects, without requiring huge 1024x1024 background images to be downloaded.

The whole thing runs a little slowly on my Samsung Galaxy 10 A, however, so I'm going to have to add an option to disable the buffer when necessary.
But otherwise.. Yeah.. Works alright!

If you'd like to try out the engine for yourself, head on over to the imaginatively titled Browsercade.com and you can have a short play about.

Most-everything should work with keyboard.
You should also be able to plug in a gamepad, and have it work.
Tapping the tiny button on the bottom left of the main menu will open up the touchscreen buttons, and you can test those out, too, should you be on mobile/tablet.

Do be aware, the collision detection in the "game" isn't 100% yet!

But otherwise, you should be able to get a good enough feel for the controls.
Be sure to let me know if it's up to regular AGameAWeek standards!

v1.30 - Added the logic game "Pontoon Grid".


This week's game sees you trying to place the cards in such a manner that all rows and columns add up to 21.
The game should be fairly easy to solve, as long as you remember the card values.

Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10.
Aces can be either 1 or 11.

You can Play Pontoon Grid here, or wait for it to show up in your regularly scheduled puzzle sheet.

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...

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.

PreRelease - Touch Controls are more or less functional.[/highlight] -

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.
