Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

On previous releases of “Arcade Slots” games, people have consistently whinged that the games are “TOOOOOO RANDOM!!!”. They then inexplicably ignore the actual game, and get stuck in a “OMG! ITS RANDOM!” loop, whereby they can’t seem to enjoy the games at all.
Of COURSE the games are Random! They’re supposed to be random! It’s a flamin’ Slot Machine.. That’s the whole bloomin’ point of slot machines!

.. But people can’t seem to let go, so this time around I opted to pre-empt their whinging by adding a small disclaimer to “A Bit of a Spin”.

OK, Now What?>

You may have noticed a slight lack of gaming over the past couple of months. Usually I cut down on AGameAWeek during the closing months of a year, and instead focus on a larger project, but over the course of this year I’ve already tackled a number of larger projects.
Blockman Worlds, JNK Bombers, Future Classics.. They’ve all been substantially larger than my standard weekly output.
As such, I’m actually struggling to come up with a decent “end of year project” that would be worth tackling.
Instead, I’ve decided to make a start on this year’s xmas game. I’m going to attempt to create a little plaything within a few hours, whenever I have a few hours to spare. I’ll wrap it up into a little advent calendar package, and post it on Dec 1st. Plenty of time to get that done, and hopefully I won’t bugger it up, or ignore it, along the way!

So that’s pretty much what I’ll be doing, and I’d be quite content with that, except that I’ve gone and done something fairly silly…
I’ve now got THREE accounts over at OneGameAMonth, and each one needs a game posted each month, which means.. Basically.. I HAVE to make at least three games each month.
D’oh!!!
I’m going to have to make a quick little Platdude game, and cobble something else together, to keep those slots filled.

AGameAWeek’s iOS Bundle!!!

IMG_6430.PNG

Introducing “AGameAWeek’s Monkey-X Bundle”
7 cracking AGameAWeek iOS games, for the price of only 3, because, what’s the point of a bundle if it’s not much cheaper than buying the games separately!?
You want a bargain?! You’ve got it!!!

If this is popular, I’ll probably start releasing more bundles in future. It seems like a much fairer way of pricing my AGameAWeek games, on iOS.

If you’ve an iOS8 compatible device, give it a whirl, and let me know how it goes.

Woot! Bundles!!

A year’s worth of Star Trek Starships models have completely overwhelmed my current shelving, and I barely ever use my desk since having switched to a laptop.
As such, it’s time to rearrange things in my bedroom.
