AAA: The Game (Development Diary #5)

I’ve been hard at work the past couple of weeks trying to optimize and finish up the core content, and I’m happy to say that All About Android: The Game is nearly complete. I still want to do a few days of testing to iron out any issues with new features and I will need to spend some time creating promotional content such as screenshots before I publish it to the market. That being said I hope to have the game available for purchase in the Google Play store by the weekend!!! I also plan to put it on the amazon app store around the same time 🙂

This is an initial release and I plan to keep on adding features and improving it! This turned out to be a larger project than I originally planned but it’s been a lot of fun and I’ve learned a ton!!!

AAA: The Game (Development Diary #2)

It hasn’t been long since the last time I posted but I’ve made some significant updates that I wanted to share!!!

Pickups:

The first thing was to change the jewels into android os themed desserts. A lot of people on Google+ suggested this and it was such a no brainer that I’m embarrassed I didn’t think of it in the first place. But no matter you will now see cupcakes, donuts, and eclairs!!!

Speed:

I made it so that the game speed increases the longer you play (up to a maximum). Later I will add a powerup that resets the speed back to it’s starting value.

Terrain:

I made a lot of subtle changes to the modular pieces of terrain that can spawn.

  • I added more variations of obstacles
  • I gave each powerup it’s own object (before it was a single object that would pick a powerup randomly). This makes the pickup placement more appropriate for the nature of each powerup.
  • I added a few objects that had no obstacles, just big clusters of desserts!!!

TROLOLOLOL:

Someone on Google+ (or a couple people) mentioned something about patent trolls which gave me an awesome idea! Now once you hit certain score milestones (200 point intervals for now), you will be faced with a mean green patent troll armed with deadly gavels and a mac pro jetpack!!! WATCH OUT!!!!!!!

 

What’s Next:

The features are coming along nicely and unfortunately the next logical step is to either mess with sound effects or start optimizing (BOOOOORING!!!). But yeah stay tuned…
