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!

A silly indie game based on the Google Chrome "no internet connection" endless runner dino game. 

Very small game that you're probably not gonna play for long, but I have found myself playing it in-between the larger RPG / Strategy games I play and having some fun with it for a few minutes at a time. 

Monetization is through ads, which luckily can be closed immediately (no 5-sec waiting). 

My thoughts on Dino Run 2:

      A new entry in the devlog for 13 Ronin, a retro 2d samurai fighting game, this time it's about implementing the logic for the computer player.
      Happy coding!

      Hey,
      So I have got this asteroid type game and today I encountered a new issue while testing this game.
      What happened was that two asteroids were close to each other and I shot a bullet at them. The asteroids were so close to each other that a single bullet could collide to both of them.
      It collided and my game crashed there itself. I figured out it happened because two asteroids and one bullet collided in the same frame.
      This is the code -
      ```void Collision::DoCollisions(Game *game) const
      {
          for (ColliderList::const_iterator colliderAIt = colliders_.begin(), end = colliders_.end();
              colliderAIt != end;
              ++colliderAIt)
          {
              ColliderList::const_iterator colliderBIt = colliderAIt;
              for (++colliderBIt; colliderBIt != end; ++colliderBIt)
              {
                  Collider *colliderA = *colliderAIt;
                  Collider *colliderB = *colliderBIt;
                  if (CollisionTest(colliderA, colliderB))
                  {
                      game->DoCollision(colliderA->entity, colliderB->entity);
                  }
              }
          }
      }```
       
      ```
      void Game::DoCollision(GameEntity *a, GameEntity *b)
      {
          Ship *player = static_cast<Ship *>(a == player_ ? a : (b == player_ ? b : 0));
          Bullet *bullet = static_cast<Bullet *>(IsBullet(a) ? a : (IsBullet(b) ? b : 0));
          Asteroid *asteroid = static_cast<Asteroid *>(IsAsteroid(a) ? a : (IsAsteroid(b) ? b : 0));
          Bullet *bulletMode = static_cast<Bullet *>(IsBulletMode(a) ? a : (IsBulletMode(b) ? b : 0));
          if (player && asteroid)
          {
              player->playerCollided = true;
              //AsteroidHit(asteroid);
              //DeletePlayer();
          }
          if (bullet && asteroid)
          {
              collidedBullets.push_back(bullet);
              collidedAsteroid.push_back(asteroid);
              //AsteroidHit(asteroid);
              //DeleteBullet();
          }
          if(bulletMode && asteroid)
          {
              collidedBulletMode.push_back(bulletMode);
              collidedAsteroid.push_back(asteroid);
          }
      }```
       
      ```
      void Game::CollisionResponse()
      {
          if(player_->playerCollided == true)
          {
              DeletePlayer();
          }
          else
          {
          if(!collidedAsteroid.empty())
          {
              for(AsteroidList::const_iterator collidedAsteroidIt = collidedAsteroid.begin(), end = collidedAsteroid.end(); collidedAsteroidIt != end ; ++collidedAsteroidIt )
              {
                  AsteroidHit(*collidedAsteroidIt);
              }
              collidedAsteroid.clear();
          }
          
          if(!collidedBullets.empty())
          {
          for (BulletList::const_iterator bulletIt = collidedBullets.begin(), end = collidedBullets.end() ; bulletIt!=end; ++bulletIt)
          {
              DeleteBullet(*bulletIt);
          }
          
              collidedBullets.clear();
          }
          if(!collidedBulletMode.empty())
          {
              for (BulletList::const_iterator bulletIt = collidedBulletMode.begin(), end = collidedBulletMode.end() ; bulletIt!=end; ++bulletIt)
              {
                  DeleteBulletMode(*bulletIt);
              }
              collidedBulletMode.clear();
          }
      }
          }```
       
       
      in my game->docollision() -
      whenever an asteroid and a bullet used to collide, the collided objects get collected in collidedasteroids and collidedbullets respectively. When two asteroids collided with the same bullet, the two asteroids got collected safely in collidedAsteroid but the single bullet got collected in collidedBullets twice, so when the deletion was happening, the second time iteration of the bullet couldn't find the respective bullet and it got crashed.
       
      How am I supposed to approach this problem now?
       
      Thanks

      How to calculate angle between two points from a third point with the help of D3DXMATH library?

      Hello  all,
      I just finished my first Android game and published it on Google play...
      I know its not the next red dead redemption2 but it would be nice to have some comments/feedback on it if its worth it to go on with a release 2.0. or move on to the next game? (red dead redemption 3  )

      array of points(green dot) connected into a curve line,It was just nothing more than array of points arranged in order , order of insertion.
      As shown in the above figure, my goal is for the player to start from "S" and choose a point that is closest to the player and is naturally reasonable(i mean i can't walk through the wall).
      X by BWPlayer         X by BWPlayer           X by BWPlayer           X by BWPlayer             But because the shortest distance between the two points is W, it suddenly move through to the other side, which is definitely not what we want.actually what i desire is "N".
      any hints on this,look forward to your reply,thank you.
      Of course, i have used cross-production to determine if the point being chosen is relative to the left-side or right-side of my current location.with points on the right-side of my position has been chosen as candidates,then pick one of them, which is minimum distance compared with others.
