Bad Paddle – Submitted!

I’ve submitted my entry. It took 6 hours and stands as a decent proof of concept. Some will call it a pong-clone, but I think it does alot to expand on the concept. While I wish I had more time to polish it, it does well enough as is. Please give it a play and let me know what you think. Good luck to all the other devs, and happy hunting to all you players.

Fibonacci Grid – Post Compo

Posted by (twitter: @andyjamesadams)
Monday, January 5th, 2015 11:42 am

Yippee! I’ve finished the post-compo version of Fibonacci Grid.
1. Added Main Menu (Now that I’m not restricted to 1 screen)
2. Added In game menu w/ restart – quit – and music option
3. Added stats tracking to main menu
4. Added level adjustment to increase over times the game is played.
5. Added 2 new game modes!
-TIMED MODE – race against the clock and not a move count
-ZEN MODE – no limits on your math skills… just click until you hit the goal… or have to reset.

6. I ADDED A TUTORIAL!!! (Most requested improvement)

The post compo is up on GameJolt HERE.

You can play the original LD entry HERE.

Fibonacci Grid – It’s maths.

So I decided to make a game focused on one of my favorite math things, the Fibonacci sequence. I had fun and I’m fairly happy with how it turned out. So to the nit and grit of a postmortem post (the good, bad, and confusing?).

The good:
-I learned A LOT!
-the game is well received by most that play it.
-I actually finished this time, and I like the game I made.
-the animations and time I put into them paid off
-I designed the game with mobile in mind and have something I can take to market (maybe)


The Bad:
– I suck at writing music
– I thought the core mechanic was simple enough to understand and it wasn’t
– I should have added a tutorial
– I had some crash bugs on release
– I completely misspelled Fibonacci the entire time I was developing (corrected since)


The confusing:
I made a concious effort to have people playtest my game, and was under the impression that the”adding” mechanic was simple. While some folks are getting the idea either right away, or shortly there after, most are confused.

MORAL: Dont assume everyone reads the description on the page, and if it is needed that much then put it inside the game.

I’ve got a working build and I’d like to get some testing done on it. The music is currently just some chiptune-ish placeholder music.


The game is based on the simple principle that when the grid expands it totals its neighboring tiles.
FEEDBACK IS SUPER REQUESTED! Here are some screenies to entice you.

Bomb, rotation, and map regen demo

I love this game. It is so simple and yet complex. You have to avoid the bad guys and the lava pits. You place bombs and blow away the map beneath you. As you destroy the environment the blocks “Beneath the Surface” rise up to replace the old. You cannot leave the 5×5 grid, but it is ever evolving. I’ve published it on my website HERE. You can also download Mac, Linux, Windows, and the source code at that address. I was aiming for a kind of mix between fez, and minecraft style art, and I think I’ve nailed it. I’m open to all comments and critisms you might have. I’ll save the post mordem for a less busy time on the blog flow. Thanks for playing!

You only get one cookie and that fat bugger Santa wants it. Defend your cookie from him and his legions of elves and gingerbread zombies. I know seasonal games don’t really traditionally do well, but it’s a game and if I finish on time… It’ll be my first finished game.
Here’s some Sprite-y art to wet your cookie loving appetite.
