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!
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.
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.
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.
Memorable Ladies and Memorable Ladies Lite have been given new soul: Each level begin with some parts of the model picture showing up. The parts that are not showing up form a figure. In addition Memorable Ladies has one new level, 13 levels in total.
This is how Memorable Ladies looks like, when the level begins:
I have removed the feature, that shows for a short time all the numbers and the game ends, if mistake-value is 20 or if the player runs out of time. 15 marks in total for each level to use to mark numbers the bonuses have shown.
The games are now more playable and enjoyable.

Same new spirit has been given to Memorable Ladies Lite v2.00. See the video:
The games don’t have an installer, they come as zip archive.
