I’ve started to code my dream game :-)

I’m still big fan of C64’s Ultima IV & V. Since playing those games, I’ve wanted to make some kind of 2D Ultima game myself and now I’ve started…

Though in my limited spare time, it will take probably quite a long time to finish this game. Not only coding takes time, but also to come up with some nice story for the game…

This is what I’ve done so far (far from perfect…):

Hopefully I will be able to make at least a ”mini version” for the Amiga, too.

Easy Math Challenge v2.0 — now with sound again!

I have rewritten Easy Math Challenge in Cerberus X and now the game is with sound again. In the video below, the music is added to the video and the sound effects are off. The video is made with my phone and it was not allowed to record the sound.

When you have solved enough puzzles, you’ll get into a resting screen where there is different background music and old school text scrolling.

The game is a good time killer while sitting for example in a train. 🙂

New Year 2019

The year has started quite slowly for me.. Or has it? I’m again a full time student. That really slices quite a lot of hours of my day. At least I try to find time for my Android app Calculus. Some other projects are also in my mind.

Last summer I started coding a “space game” (I called it Androrace), but I lost my interest in it. Video below:

A try to code an update for Calculus as soon as possible.. Hopefully we’ll see some games too!

UFOs back in Defense II

It seems, that someone had deleted the UFO graphics file from my online game Defense II. Now the UFOs are back. Instead of UFOs, there were only filled circles flying in the playing area.

My firewall plugin has recently blocked some IPs. I guess some people “have too much time”, that is: they have the time to do bad things to others.

Perhaps you should go to see this game and defend the neighborhood from UFOs. 🙂

Three tunes that were left out from Memorable Melodies

When I made the short old school synth tunes for Memorable Melodies, I made them all in one night.

There are three tunes I left out from the game. I guess these were just experimental tunes to set me in the “composing” mood. I made today a YouTube video from those three tunes:

Try the free game to get a impression, how the tunes turned out to be, that were included in the game. Remember, there is a cheat in the game: By tapping top right corner of the screen during game play, all the mistakes are cleared.

The latest version of Memorable Melodies is 1.4.

As you can see from the ProTrekkr window in the video, I’ve been making an Air Wolf cover with ProTrekkr. If I ever get it finished, I will publish a blog post here, where you can here the result.

On Easy Math Challenge development

I’d like to tell, why and what kind of bugs there were in my Android game Easy Math Challenge in its early versions.

The smallest bug was that there was “difficulty level 0”. If the user tapped somewhere else than the difficulty level buttons, the game gave “puzzles” like “3 = 3”. Well, those “puzzles” were always correct. This was fixed later.

The more annoying bug was, that in early versions the puzzles sometimes might be impossible.

The reason for that was, that I’ve used numbers also for the operations of puzzles. If for example + (plus) was 45, while calculating the result, the result got wrong so that 45 was part of the calculation numbers, not an operation. This was fixed later.

Video of the version 1.7.2 (no known bugs):

I wrote the program from scratch without any planning and often the usual mistake of mine: Work was done too at too late of hours.

If you still find some bugs, please let me know.

 

 

How I made it on Music Game Jam 2018

My contribution to Music Game Jam 2018 was very quickly made. There was 2 weeks time and later some more time was given, but I made my game practically in two days. My ranking on the jam was 78th / 99. The Plus-version was made even in shorter time.

Below is a video from Build a Tune Plus, which is my thank you for your comments and downloads:

I probably should start (or learn) to make again music.. The short ending music for the Plus-version is made recently. The downloads are available below:

I signed today the exe files with the OV code signing certificate.

My Thank You for comments and downloads on Music Game Jam 2018

I want thank for all the comments and downloads on Music Game Jam 2018 with Build a Tune Plus. The game consists not only one level, but three levels and an ending. 🙂 All music made by me.

The game can be downloaded from the Build a Tune page on itch.io.

On the same page there is the original Build a Tune.

Thank you!

Order the Chaos as Online Game

I published yesterday Order the Chaos as online game. The online version is some kind of lite version of the original BlitzMax game.

Link to game.

The game has a bit simpler ending because of the limitations of HTML5.

The resolution of the game is 648 x 720 pixels.

Order the Chaos II — more polished version and with large (the playing area is scrolled) Mandelbrot mountains is of course available on itch.io.

The online version of Order the Chaos works with mobile devices, too.
