There are some simple rules. When it's your turn, you can move one figure like the chess rules say and pass/shoot the ball three times (if possible). To pass the ball you have to stand in the near of the ball. As you can see in the Screenshot, a white knight and the queen are near. So now the ball can move like the knight and the Queen. When only a bishop is near,  the ball can move like a bishop. The goal is to score three times. To score make a goal or set your opponent checkmate.

Started a new game. It is a mix of my two favorite games: chess and soccer. It works really good and now I try to create a nice ai.

If you dont have an android device or want to play the game in the browser, try out the javascript version

I'll be sure to check it out! By the way, I've noticed another bug, I don't know if the two were related: if a size-3 ball is in the middle of some ice and you push a size-2 ball towards it, there's no collision or anything, the size-2 simply keeps going as if there was no size-3 ball. At least it does that if the size-2 ball is pushed from East to West, don't know about other directions Smiley


Thanks for playing and reporting it.
But that is no bug (imho). Because you push the snowball on the big one, but after that you slide to the new snowman and push the smallest snowball. So it seems that the small snowball keeps going. =)
5  Games Center / Android Showcase / FiveMinuteGame on: 2016-01-22 15:54:03

that game started as a Java 4k game but I have forgotten to publish it in the year 2014. =)
But I like the game mechanics and ported the game to android. It is a game for a short break (waiting for the bus or a friend ... =) )

Rotate a circle clockwise, when the one line connect to another line in another circle the other circle will rotate. Your goal ist to make the longest chain. =)

Download: Playstore download

Hey Apo take a look at the last level I made - one that looks like some cross with snow in the South angles  Roll Eyes

Cool a buggy level. Wink Thanks for the bug.

I removed that bug and some other bugs in the editor and uploaded the new version. In the next hours you can update to a bug free version (or a nearly bug free version, who knows =) )

Hello, as per the "featured board" rules, I dare to request this thread to be moved to Featured by one of the mods.

Some stats after one week:

- Has ~800 downloads
- Has 8 reviews averaging a rating of 4.875 / 5
- the game is made with love =)

If the game will not be featured please move it to the showcase. Thanks! =)

Started a new game about a baby who wants to learn more about graphs and reach cookies Wink

9  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Snowman on: 2016-01-08 20:46:19
Just wanted to point out that the burning forest is not a big deal... Is it fully implemented? Take level 11, where it is introduced... You can still solve it if you wait for all the trees to burn. Pointing

Yes that's correct. I dont like "stress" in puzzle games, so most of the levels with the burning forest are solvable with some "time to think". (Level 24, 37 or 41)
But if you like you can do some "harder" levels with the editor =)
10  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Yetis Snowman on: 2016-01-03 08:57:15
The game is finished and available in playstore.

I hope you like it. =)

Today I finished and started my game advent calendar. 23 little games made in JavaScript.

Every day you can play another game and receive a hint at the end. Collect all hints and you have the chance to get a prize. (but I have to say the hints are in german but the game tutorials are in english =) )

First Day Game:
12  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Yetis Snowman on: 2015-08-12 19:38:36
Today I
* created a website for the game
* removed some bugs
* implemented some ideas from two beta tester (bigger font, more tutorial text, etc)

13  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Grapple - Android 2D platformer (finally released to Google Play) on: 2015-08-11 06:26:37
Tried the game. Works fine on my oneplus one.

At first congratz for the nice, great art in your game. I really like it. And it is a game: easy to learn hard to master.

Some thoughts:
- it is a speedrunner but why is the main character sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow?
- the get off the ladder you need really the second thumb ... mhhh I dont like it. I like to play a game with one hand. But when you know it is ok.
14  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: [Android] Blu’s Travel (Testers wanted!) on: 2015-08-11 06:16:13
Nice little game.

Works fine on my oneplus one.

Some thoughts:
- Like the others said other buttons would look better. Perhaps it would be enough to make a dark outline.
- I don't like the spikes because they are hard to see because the brown and the dark green are really similar
- The first 7 levels are really easy -> a steeper learning curve would be great.
15  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Yetis Snowman on: 2015-08-11 06:01:10
Big thanks for the feedback.

Looks cool, can you say anything about what type of game play (beyond Puzzle) it will feature? ...

The basic mechanics are adapted from the great game "a good snowman is hard to build". It can be described as a sokoban-style game where you have to build a snowman. You can push snowballs on each other (small ball -> medium ball -> big ball) and when the underground is snow the snowball grows.
Yetis Snowman adds more tiles (fire to decrease the snowballs, ice to slide, night to show only a little area of the level, forest burn) and more, other levels.
All levels are created with the ingame editor.

If you want to try it out, here you can download the beta version of the android game
16  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Snowman on: 2015-08-10 09:34:03

My latest game in development has the name 'Snowman' and is an android game.
Like my other games it is a puzzle game.

The game have:
- 55 levels
- ingame editor with upload function
- play and vote levels created by other users
- nice graphics

You can download it from the playstore or the website

17  Games Center / Android Showcase / Re: ApoTreasure on: 2014-11-24 08:21:12
Thanks for the feedback. =)

I really enjoyed playing your game a few days ago (the desktop version). How did you go about making the graphics?
I bought a great graphic tileset from oryxdesignlab. I made only some little changes (buttons, the "walk-animation" etc).

... I didn't really like any of the control methods, I think I would have preferred it if you could touch anywhere to move, and it would move in the relative direction between the character and your finger.
I tried something like this but sometimes I would like to push the blocks and sometimes I want to run around the blocks. I wasn't happy with the result and removed it.
Do you know a game which implements your idea, so that I can learn from it how to implement it?

While playing, I noticed that the player's movement is slow, and that the movement itself is a little odd (only responds after it's been moving for about a second). If this was intended, it's okay, but that's just the first thing I noticed. Other than that, it's pretty fun and runs flawlessly on Ubuntu.  Smiley
The player runs from tile to tile and is not pixelperfect. Should I speed up the player?
18  Games Center / Android Showcase / ApoTreasure on: 2014-11-17 12:29:38

in ApoTreasure your goal is:
Guide the knight to the treasure.

It is a unique puzzle game. Easy to understand but hard to master.


Or try the desktop version or the applet

- nice retro graphics
- unique gameplay
- 64 levels
- ingame editor with upload function
- play levels created by other users

You like the game or find some bugs? Then please comment it. Thanks. =)


Basic-Idea by the old game "Kwirk" and by Niklas Baumgarten
19  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Jumproom on: 2014-07-11 13:47:00
I really like the game! I love to see your old game shrooms back to live in another way. =) Tried it on my z1 compact and it runs well.

- Only level 1-8 was a little bit frustrating. The levels before are very easy and that level is quite hard.
- I would change the tutorial text in level 1-2. In that level you can't fall off the screen but in level 1-6.
- A tutorial text would be cool when the first time two different mushrooms are in one level. I need to restart that level serveral times until I realized I have to touch on different sides. Wink
- The idea with the coins is good but I would like to have stars at the end of the level:
1 star if you collect all coins
1 star if you beat the level in the time limit
1 star if you don't die
So the levels are more challening.
-I like the different themes but imho level 2 needs more contrast. (your screenshot in the first post with level 2-1 is better than the current version imho)
- with the back button on my android device please don't quit the whole game when I am in the level, go back to the menu oder show the options with restart and menu

Thanks to all the judges for their great work. =)

Congratz to Gef. The game is the well-deserved winner!
21  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: Results due soon on: 2014-03-20 09:01:39
I'm still curious about the results. Wink

And a link to the desktop launcher on the first page would be nice.
22  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: Results due soon on: 2014-03-15 23:27:33
I'm curious about the result. =)
23  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: AgeOfCivilizations on: 2013-12-30 23:06:48
It looks very nice!!!  Cool
As dapy said I am very interested to see what you can implement in 4k.
24  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: MyTreasure on: 2013-12-13 19:37:39
Now you can find the game in the android play store.

What is new?
- added more levels
- added sound effects and music

I will update only the android version, the standard Java version of the game has no sound.

25  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: BUG4BOO on: 2013-12-12 18:04:53
Looks really cool and with sound!!! It isn't easy to jump excatly (for me) but I had a nice time with the game!
26  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: WrappingPaper4k on: 2013-12-04 10:38:04
Thanks for the feedback.

The idea with the sound "sounds" great. I will try some "nice" beep sounds.
27  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / GameInceptionGames on: 2013-12-04 10:37:01

since I can upload only 5 games this year. I have to choose wisely.

I started an "old Game"-InCeption series (a game in a game). But I think I should only upload one "in"ception game. Please help me to choose the best game. Thanks =)

So here are the nominees:
1. PongCeption

A pong game in a pong game. I use the great Bit.Trip Beat layout.
To play click here or on the screenshot

2. BreakCeption

A breakout game in a breakout game.
To play click here or on the screenshot

3. TicCeption

A tictactoe game in a tictactoe game. At the moment a computer ai is missing. I will add it the next days but you can play against another human.
To play click here or on the screenshot

4. Sn4keCeption

It is a snake game in a snake game. At the moment it isn't ready but the gameplay will be. Eat like in other snake game some fruits and you will be longer. But every 4 new part you play the snake game in that part of the body at the same time. It is like a new level added with new obstacles. And if you collide with the great snake or in on part with the wall you will lose a life.
28  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / Re: WrappingPaper4k on: 2013-12-02 23:33:00
Of course not  Grin

My way to create the pack.gz file:
compile with 7Zip and the command line "7z a -mx=9 -tzip e.jar E.class" -> that created jar you can play here
after that I use pack200 with the command line "pack200 -G -E9 e.pack.gz e.jar" and that creates a e.pack.gz file with a e.pack in it ...
What's wrong with my way? Thanks for your help!

29  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2014 / WrappingPaper4k on: 2013-12-02 21:55:47

then I will start the first game topic =)

WrappingPaper4k is a puzzle game (yeah you know I love puzzle games).

Move and fold paper strips by dragging them with the mouse.
Use them to join dots placed on the screen.

Easy to learn, yet hard to master.
It is a 4kb remake of the great Colorbind.

At the moment the pack200 file is 3,66 kb I have some space left. More levels or better graphics? What do you prefer?

You can play it here.
If you want to try the Javascript version click here

30  Games Center / Contests / Re: Discuss the future of 4k contest on: 2013-11-26 22:27:21
Looks very nice!

I like the idea with the showing only the title and the decription in a tooltip.

My wish would be a sorting option (by year, by title and by author).
