Hi all, I've been learning DX lately (I've been using OGL up to this point) and inorder to test some of the things I learned I created this small puzzle game. It's basically a standard "match the color gems together and get the high score" type deal, except in 3D (with a 3D cube instead of a 2D set of gems... hope that makes sense). Please keep in mind that this is just a test game and the first thing I made with DX, so there aren't any flashy graphics, and there are several bugs, but perhaps it's still slightly interesting. Anyway, if you every have a free minute or two, give it a shot, and please tell me how it worked. Useful information is of course system specs. and FPS (printed in the lower-left corner of the screen). For instructions on how to play, press the "More..." button and then "Help". DL link: (1.37MB) Just a note: There is one rather nasty bug in "Ship Gems" mode where if the game isn't running at or near 80FPS, you won't be able to shoot at all the gems. Sorry about that. Thanks for your time!
