Word Jumble now available on the Palm App Catalog

May 25th, 2010

Word Jumble has now been released on the Palm App Catalog for both the Palm Pre and the Pixi. It definitely took a lot longer than I anticipated but the end result is a great looking and polished product.

From the product description

Word Jumble is a great and addictive game that will keep you coming back for more! Unscramble the jumbled words to reveal the secret keyword at the bottom. Over 5200+ possible words! Play against the clock or at your leisure. Think its too easy? You have 3 different times to test yourself against. Not sure what a word is? Use the hint feature to give you a hand. High scores for both Timed and Normal games!

Please feel free to leave some feedback, good or bad.


Palm Pre, Random Notes

Five or More finally submitted to the palm app catalog!

April 17th, 2010

I know I have been slacking on this (amongst other things like maintenance of the site) but I have finally gotten around to wrapping up my game that I made awhile ago for the Palm Pre. There were a few tweaks made to the game that some people were concerned with, so hopefully a lot more people will enjoy it.

I would like to add difficulty levels to the game in the future, as well as a ‘continue’ feature.

I will keep you posted once the app is approved or not.

Cya then!

Palm Pre, Random Notes

More Pre game updates.

July 30th, 2009

I have been hard at work (in my spare time at least harr) working on updating 5 or more to get it into a much more playable state. I think I am down to 2 more bugs. One is a big pain in the ass and the other isnt too bad. Sometimes if you are able to fill the whole board and you get a 5 in a row RIGHT at the last second, it will go to gameover. I know what is wrong, I just havent fixed it yet.

The reason I haven’t is that I decided to get my mind off of it by making another Pre game. This one is much more recognizable, which is Simon. Yep, that game that you played with you were like 8, with the 4 buttons and you have to repeat the pattern. Anyways, it is in version 0.5.04 at the moment. I still have some things to work on it though. The pre does not seem to handle audio very well though. Almost as if it is a delicate flower.

Anyways, if you want to check out the updated game and simon, here you go!
Simon v0.5.04
Five or More v.0.7.25

Also, I do plan on doing some WebOs tutorials in a bit, so stay turned!

Palm Pre Game: 5 or More v 0.5.0

July 17th, 2009

So I have gotten my first Palm Pre game in a playable state, sans one bug that I am currently working on. The game is called 5 or more and I have included the rules and how to play with the game (under the help menu). You will need to have your pre in developer mode in order to install it (note this is different from having to root your pre) and use this application to get the game onto your phone:

And here is the game:

Some screen shots:

Things on the todo list:

  • fix bug that doesnt let you move a piece to a certain spot
  • Sound (sound from moving. maybe ambient music while playing?
  • Add a background
  • Add “special pieces”
  • Add achievements
  • Change the scoring around a little bit
  • Of course, if anyone wants to give any feed back on the gameplay, let me know. I also already want to rewrite this app. This definitely started with something where I was learning javascript, but definitely not applying best practices. Soon I will be picking up a few books to help out with that. I do have a few other ideas for games to create, so keep an eye out :) .

    Although I am sure many of you have heard, Palm made the SDK publicly available. So feel free to check it out.
