A brand new game
for Windows, Linux, Mac, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew and more

I tried to keep a blog. It didn't work.
It's no surprise, though. I've never been one to keep a working active blog.
No matter, I'll try something else.
Welcome to A Game A Week.com
I'm pretty much already producing games at a fast enough pace, what with the Wednesday Workshop and all. So I figured I might as well get a bit of publicity out of it by adding a nice shiny noticeable domain name!
Will it work? We'll have to wait and see.
Here's the rules of this site.
1. When I make a new game, I put it on here.
That goes for Really Really Good games, like Retro Raider, Puzzobomb, JNKPlat, Centipong, Alien Deathmatch, and all the rest.
It also goes for the extremely bizarre games that don't really make much sense! Hey, it's a Game a Week, what do you expect!
2. If I don't make a new game within a week, I'll head into my collected archive of gubbins, pluck out a rare specimen, and give it a little shout out. That should at least give you something to play that week!
3. If the folk at Socoder make a great game, I'll plop that on here, too. That goes mostly for Workshop entries, but will also count if there's something really good, too.
And, I think that's about it.
There won't be posts about what new games are coming out in the shops, or things about new hardware, or other non-related garbage. Although there may be the odd occasional rant, and I'll probably still post "Me in a magazine!!" type things if they ever happen again
So, pretty much the same as it ever was, then.
But, hopefully, with a tiny bit more content.
I've still got to work out a nice layout, though. .. But it'll do as it is for now.

This week's game will not include Super Online Highscore functions. The way it works makes it impossible to stop people from cheating.
In the meantime, here's a couple of bonus games.
This is last week's WW entry. Nice as it is, it now also includes online highscores. Right click on the titlescreen to update them. Type on the titlescreen to change your name.
Now try to beat the highscore!
You can download Space Loops here
Originally, this game was a little example thing that came with Blitz Basic. For Wednesday Workshop 150, we had to take one of the examples, and smarten it up a bit.
Now, 15 weeks later, it's been given online highscores, too!
You can download Spider here.
And now, to sit and wait for this week's game.
It's a corker

After tweeting this morning's daily Foldapuz default sheet to Twitter, I lay in bed wondering what Foldapuz game to make, next..
I started to drift off to sleep with the idea of a simple word game.
But then .. a Twitter notification..
OK then.. A maze game of sorts...
But what sort of sort..?
I rolled over, curled up, and drifted gently off to sleep, thinking about mazes..

Welcome to a mini-deathmatch scenario.
It's just you and the aliens, in this classic twin-stick shooter.
How long will you survive?
If you've a Switch, and have downloaded PetitCom4 from the (Currently) Japan-Only eShop (vague instructions here), you can grab a copy of the game using the Public Key...

We're getting back into the swing of things, now!
Here's a quickly remake of a game I did a long while ago as Nintendo DS homebrew. The basic idea was that you take a classic arcade game, and rework it so that it fits the logic and rules of a slot machine. Worked out nicely, and the DS edition ended up with 6 of these games to play, along with a nice "score to unlock" mechanic.
This is merely the Pacman edition.
If its popular, I might add some more, but if I'm honest, Id rather get a nice money making iOS edition up and running . (But to be fair, it'd lose it's edge, as I wouldn't be able to nick all these classic games as easily!)
Anyhoo, here be that!
PlayMyCode no longer worksProof of my recovery is no longer valid!!
And if you're interested, which you are, here be the DS edition, from October 2007!

I spent most of last night reading (and/or attempting to read, with Google Translate's camera function glitching and popping all the text, all over the place) through what I could find in Petit Computer's Help files.

After I release more and more games, player's try desperately to keep up!
Let's see what RSKGames thinks of today's Shoebox addition.
You can Play Grid of Conquest in the Shoebox, under the Group Games section.
Oh yeah! I'd actually forgotten about that game.

I don't think I'll be getting "Game with balls" up and running within the next day-and-a-half or so, so instead, I'll make something completely different!!
But what game to make?
