Robot University -- a 2D DirectX Puzzle



Added Hint

Posted by puz, 09 October 2011 · 194 views

I think the amount of hint strikes a good balance between being too difficult and giving away the answer. But I could be wrong. I hope somebody gives me feedback. :wink:...

:( I made a sad discovery that what I thought was my original idea in the "20 Hops" game has been done before.

Yesterday decided to update Eclipse and Android SDK. Something went wrong and compiler stopped working on known-good projects. After wasting much time searching the web for solutions and trying various things to fix this issue, finally got it to work again by uninstalling and re-installing Android Development Tools.
