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.

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)

image

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.

TRY IT HERE!

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.
