  1. Tips?

    I'd like to start building a 2D game, very small, just pixel art. I know python/javascript/tiny bit of HTML and I've started learning C++. I'm a long way from starting officially, I've just been making mini-projects to practice & drawing up concept art/gameplay storyboards. I'm just wondering if I'm off with the C++ for the game's programming, or if I should know certain things before starting. The game would be very small, I just want to get started trying out some actual work before college. Some other info: I'm working by myself on this, and going into game design/programming next year for college. I'm a high school student with a few years of experience just working by myself making small projects, drawing up stuff, so I really don't know much and I'd appreciate any tips. Thanks a bunch!
  2. 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! Cross-platform Multiplayer (online and lan) and Singleplayer shooter Flats, is the weirdest (and most lightweight) FPS I've ever played! The game runs smoothly and I was glad to see that all guns are unlocked from the start for free. There's nothing to unlock, no energy system, and a single $2 IAP removes all ads. The game runs smoothly, the many play-modes were fun, but the controls felt a bit strange and the game is mostly abandoned (for now) by the devs. My thoughts on Flats: Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.foliagegames.flats iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flats/id833603987?mt=8 Subscribe on YouTube for more commentaries: https://goo.gl/xKhGjh Or join me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mobilegamefan/ Or Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nimblethoryt/ Or Twitter: https://twitter.com/nimblethor
  3. 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 fun top-down rpg shooter with roguelike elements, including crafting, endless "floors" (levels), lots of weapons and armor pieces, and a relaxed monetization focusing mostly on incentivized ads. I really enjoyed playing the game, but it's not available globally yet. Definitely one to look forward to, though!

  4. 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! Zombie Age 3 is a side-scrolling shooter that in terms of art-style and gameplay feels like a 2007 Flash-game ported to mobile, with some 2017 monetization added on top (incentivized ads, a few IAPs, and an energy system that luckily is so toned-down that I barely even noticed it, as energy is replenished every 8 minutes). The game is simple, but has a surprising amount of game modes, characters, and weapons, which keeps things interesting.

Other changes: There's a bunch of other improvements and stability fixes, listed here: Fixed occasional crash when winning an Obstacle Course online match. Fixed rare online crash when building units. Fixed lower half of towers and walls not having correct collision on client sometimes.

Fixed explosive boulders having a shorter build time after hitting the gate. Added an achievement for landing in the highest multiplier in the Skee-Boulder ramp. Added achievements for climbing to every War rank. Ranking information is displayed at online War matches and general interface. Hope everyone enjoys this latest awesome update! --- What is Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder? Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder is a game that improves on all aspects of the original.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! Clone Evolution is a Borderlands-looking idle gacha RPG, and it's close to perfect in my opinion! You get an insane amount of premium currency for free, the VIP system is useless, and there's a crazy amount of funny characters who references real life figures, equipment, and chips to unlock and level up, which makes for some awesome micro-management and a lot of depth.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! With a lovely retro art-style, "survive-as-long-as-you-can" single-room infinite runner INFINIROOM has some of the most unique yet simple gameplay I've seen in months. Although you can play with the main character forever, monetization happens through a single $3 IAP without which you are limited in the amount of times you can play with the other characters unless you watch an ad, or survive for more than 30 seconds - both of which gives you extra "tickets" to play with any character.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! I was planning on giving Goons.io a glowing recommendation, until I found out that the game is actually an offline experience, concealed as an online .io game. I felt a bit deceived when I found out, but to be fair, the developer never actually claimed the game to be online, and the game is surprisingly fun to play! The monetization ruins a bit of the experience, though, as the obtrusive ads are frequent unless played offline.

  10. (Note to Mods: Could "Input" or "Peripherals" be a good Tag to add to the tag list? Just a thought.) Hey, I'm currently working on which keys on a keyboard that a user can rebind their actions to. The trick is that I use a Norwegian keyboard, so it's not obvious which keys correspond to the actual C#/XNA Keys enum values. Are there any keys from the XNA Keys enum that, in your opinion, I've neglected to add? I don't need all Keys to be bindable, only the "most commonly used keys on a keyboard". Thanks. https://pastebin.com/n1cz8Y0u

A chaotic dragon-swiping "slingshot" platformer with 50 levels, an endless mode, and lots of awesome weapons to unlock. The game provides some great fun for a few days, and is monetized very lightly through occasional video ads, which can be removed through a single $2 IAP.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! As a story-driven zombie FPS played as a mix between a 3D shooter and a level-based "runner" where you run forward automatically, moving from side to side and blasting enemies, Into the Dead 2 does really well! The energy system through which the game monetizes is frustrating to say the least, but the daily missions game-mode makes up for this by allowing you to play as much as you want in an "endless" game-mode.

Aiming and shooting your way through singleplayer, same-device multiplayer, and soon even online multiplayer game-modes using a ton of different characters with unique weapons is a lot of fun. The ragdoll effects are hilarious, art-style is Happy Tree Friends-like, and the gameplay reminds me of old PC games like Pocket Tanks. Monetization happens through TOO MANY ads, but at least they can be removed through a single $2 IAP.

  16. Soul of Mask close to release

    Hey, Me again, I got some problem with SDL2_mixer on macOs, actually I am thinking about cancelling MacOs version as I found no solution to play sounds in this platform. Looks like we will stick with Windows and Linux. Good news, the development is about to be close now. and i provide 3 videos for Tutorial, Mask power presentation, and an easy level to show the gameplay. Tutorial : Mask Presentation: Gameplay. Before each level, the level takes something like 1 to 5 seconds to load depending on the computer, so I added loading screen that presents all the different characters in the game. here you have one. hope you will like it.
  17. 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! With a light-hearted storyline, high-quality voiced cut-scenes, hundreds of characters to unlock, and a pet system, Lionheart: Dark Moon is an interesting RPG with quite a bit of depth to both characters and combat. The energy system is frustrating and limiting, however, which might ruin the gameplay experience if you're looking to play for extended periods of time. The game's everything you expect from a mobile RPG these days (both good and bad), so expect a grindy level progression but lots of awesome heroes to unlock.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! 8-bit indie action game Magink has you battle it out against ink-monsters in a short but interesting and very unique game. The "swipe to attack" mechanism works really great, and choosing the correct attack for any given situation is a real challenge (you have three types of ink; red, yellow, or blue, each with their own basic attacks and special abilities). The game has no IAP nor ads, most likely because the game doesn't seem 100% finished yet. As the devs are Chinese, however, it is difficult to find any info on any potential updates.

  19. Good Experience with Video Player

    MP3 is still one of the most used audio file formats today. This is the reason why people are usually focused on MP3 players when they are looking for modern audio players. Even though the essence of MP3 players has not changed, the truth is that modern devices of this kind come with many different features and upgraded basic features. In addition, this is a very competitive market which means that you can find mediocre, good and great MP3 players. If you are looking for the best one, you should take a few things into account. The following is a short list of things that make a good MP3 player. 1. Storage capacity First and foremost, you should take a closer look at the storage capacity of the device you are interested in. Most of them have their own hard disk drive, but this is not the most important thing about storage capacity. What you should be looking for is the flash drive slot. The best MP3 players today are letting users inset memory cards that have a capacity of 64 GB or even 128 GB. Some of the most popular ones like Xduoo X3 for example have two slots for SD Cards (128 GB each). In this way, you can store thousands of MP3 songs and listen to them on your device whenever you want. 2. Battery capacity One of the best things about MP3 players is the fact that they are mobile devices. They are small and you can carry them almost anywhere you want without any problems. In order to play bad baby channel, these players are using batteries. The battery capacity is marked with mAh sign (milliamp hours). Generally speaking, the higher the number of mAh, the better. In any case, you should check the technical characteristics and learn more about battery life and the amount of time you’ll need to recharge the device. 3. Screen Users agree that MP3 players with LED screens provide the best experience to watching learn colors with finger family songs. You should also check the brightness of the screen. There are some players that have touch screens, but this is not necessarily an advantage because some of these screens are too sensitive and prone to damage. 4. Radio There are situations when people want to listen to the radio despite the fact that they have access to thousands of MP3 files on their device. It would be great if you can find a device that lets you connect to local FM radio stations. 5. Lossless audio files Besides MP3 audio files, some MP3 players can also play lossless audio files. These files are larger, but they are capable of producing clear sounds. Once again, this feature is not crucial, but it can definitely be helpful. Now that you know what makes a good MP3 player, it’s time to start looking for the best place to buy one. Most people agree that using the Internet is the best option we have today because of the convenience and opportunities that online shopping provides.
