In this daily blog (and video)-series I take a first impressions look at the best mobile games that I come by. Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below!

Pitched as an "Endless Action RPG", Slayin is a challenging retro-styled arcade game with 8 unique characters to unlock and a near-perfect monetization (highest in-app purchase being $6). 

The "endless" gameplay has you running from side to side, slashing through hordes of enemies and bosses and buying upgrades along the way, as you aim to beat your own highscore.  

Slayin is an old game, but I decided to still cover it, as it's a great throwback to a simpler time in the mobile games industry :)

My thoughts on Slayin:

      Dialogue systems suck. I hate them. I have been working on one for a project and it is just so frustrating! I finally got it just barely working, but it's the most hacked together bullshit dialogue system possible and I don't even really understand how it works. I'm just glad I can forget about it for a while, and work on the rest of the game.

      I was tying to figure out what to do with my procedural planets and for an initial step and I wanted to fly a spacecraft in and establish a low orbit around my world starting from some distant point and initial velocity.  I know how to set up the gravity and I think I can pretty much do manual controls that will simulate Newtonian physics. However what I'm looking for is some software or algorithms that let me establish the orbit by controlling thrust in the right direction at the appropriate points in a trip towards the planet.
      So I guess the software would accept something like starting position, starting velocity, desired orbit height (I'm assuming circular for now) , and desired orbit plane.  From there it would give me firing points, duration and trust vectors needed to for the orbit.  To make things simpler I'm assuming infinite fuel. I figure NASA must do stuff like this all the time but I haven't been able to find something solid on how it's done.  Perhaps it's too complex, I'm not really sure, but I thought I throw the question out there anyway.

      Hi guys! Our first game (Dongo Adventure) has just been released on Steam! I hope you have fun with the game! O/
      The game was produced by me and my brother for 11 months. We did everything with free and open source software (Blender 3D and Gimp).
      About the game: The game is 3D Platform style, inspired by the classic platform games (mainly 'Donkey Kong Country 2'), bringing all those challenges and fun of the genre. Thank you all for the support!

      So my only coding experience is with writing Interactive Fiction games with Inform, so I get the logic and stuff, but, I'm so used to starting with a program with libraries and assets already built in, that I have no idea how to build something from scratch. 
      I'm would like to make this simulation game where the player is a student in a [magic] school, and I've got stats for the students, their personality types, and ideas on how that should effect their performance in class, and experience rates, and all this data in a google spreadsheet, but I have NO idea how to start creating this game on a code level. So, I'm just struggling on finding out how to get started. Can anybody give me some advice?
