I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far.

Navigate left, right or up and you continue moving until you hit an obstacle or change direction. That's the puzzle element that makes platformer Duke Dashington Remastered both fun and challenging.

Oh, and the fact that you only have 10 seconds to complete each level! 

The game's a true indie game, with around an hour or two of gameplay and and endless mode to keep us entertained for even longer. 

$2 removes all ads from the game, of which there are a few if you play for free.

My thoughts on Duke Dashington Remastered:

      I'm thinking on developing my own breeding game. Should be easy enougth to create the basic game mechanics and mostly the planning phase is done. I'll use "NimbleBit"s "Pocket Frogs" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_Frogs and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nimblebit.pocketfrogs&hl=de) as example, because my idea is in some ways quite similar. Android is the first platform I want to target, with optional expanding later to IOS and perhaps Windows.

      First Problem:
      I'm quite not sure about what language or engine I should use. I know this question is mainly based on opinion, but based on what I plan to do, is there an engine to prefer and why, or should I build it from scratch and wich language should I use then? At the moment my best bet would be on unity or python. Any suggestions here?

      Second (and most significant) Problem:
      I want to create a large amount  of - let's call it - monsters, that differs in color, pattern, color of the pattern and partly shape, but I don't get the trick behind it. So the question here is: How to create reusable monsters that differ in the above mentioned characteristics, with the lowest possible number of graphics.
      My thoughts and attempts on that topic: I looked at Pocket Frogs, and except shape they do exact the same with their frogs what I want to do. But I really don't get how they created over 38.000 (!!!) individual frogs, and the game still doesn't use that much space. I first tried to extract the graphics from the games files to puzzle together what they did. But I could not find them. However I think I figured out some parts of this secret just by looking at the frogs ingame: I think they used a basic frog model. 16 to be exact, to create 16 background frogs in all the colors. On top of them they just displayed the different patterns. But - and thats the mystery - the patterns are in different colors too and  I still dont believe they made 16*104=1664 different pattern graphics. So what trick am I missing here? Some kind of mask? Can I use the same technique to create different additional shapes for my monsters? And how did they made the feet moving. If the pattern on the feet are extra graphics, that would be another 1664 graphics.
      Any idea on how I can make this work, or on how did they make this work will be very appreciated! Thx

      Lightstream, an innovator in cloud-native live streaming technology, today announced its IRL (In Real Life) plan for broadcasters who stream events from their phones or mobile live streaming setups. 
      Streaming out in the world away from a computer and without a strong internet connection can be a challenge. Lightstream’s new IRL plan provides capabilities that streamline setup time and gear required to produce a professional stream from any location, any device and any connection. 
      “Part of our mission at Lightstream has been to empower new creative possibilities and our new IRL streaming plan does just that,” says Stu Grubbs, CEO of Lightstream. “Lightstream Studio is powered by our cloud-native live video editing pipeline allowing creators to set up their production in advance, remotely control it, and have their streaming video automatically produced to their specifications from anywhere in the world while in-flight to their viewers.”
      With a Lightstream IRL plan, streamers set up their project and scenes via any browser-enabled device with their overlays, RTMP source and final channel destination. Broadcasting to Lightstream from any location will automatically layer on the media in that project on its way to their channel – whether that be Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, Facebook Live, or a custom destination. Similar to Lightstream’s unique integration with Xbox and Mixer, there is no need to have Lightstream Studio open in a browser window. 

      The new IRL Plan includes the following features:
      Customize with Overlays & Alerts
      Streamers can create multiple custom layouts, upload and position overlays, and use any integrated alerts service they prefer to easily personalize their mobile or IRL broadcast to better engage their audience.
      Auto Go Live
      Projects can be set to automatically start streaming to the broadcaster’s channel as soon as an incoming feed is detected.
      Auto BRB
      If connection is lost, the RTMP layer will go transparent until connection is re-established. Position an image directly behind your feed that will automatically appear to keep viewers updated.
      Disconnect Protection
      Lightstream Cloud will continue broadcasting and keeps the broadcaster’s channel live until signal is regained so the audience doesn’t leave.
       Remote Control
      Start, stop, and switch scenes on any mobile device.
      Stay Mobile with Headless Mode
      Go live without having Lightstream Studio open. Lightstream will automatically composite on your layers in the cloud.
      Max Quality & Duration Increase
      Stream at 720p 60 fps for up to 12 hours per broadcast.

      For more information and to sign up for the IRL Plan, please visit https://golightstream.com/irl.
