If you've been following AGameAWeek for the past few years, you'll have noticed the occasional blip, where I've mentioned having a repeating neck cramp, with accompanying migraines. These have gotten steadily worse, up until early March 2012, when I was curled over the toilet bowl, throwing up a worryingly black goo of sorts.
Enough was enough!

An ambulance was called, and after my blood pressure failed to register (too high!?) I was whizzed off to Bolton general where they continued to test my blood pressure, over and over again. Luckily they also decided to do a CT scan, because that's where they finally found the tumour, nestled in between my brain and my spine.
eek!

Every Tuesday morning, 10:30 GMT (or thereabouts, later if I sleep in!) I post a brand new game, right here on the site.

Each game is 100% coded by me, Jayenkai.
95% of the graphics are done by me (with rare dips into the Google Image archive when I'm absolutely dry) and 95% of the audio is also done by me (with rare dips into the Aminet archive, or Kevin MacLeod's collection for the odd bit of music when I'm not in a composing mood!)

If you'd like to read more about what tools I use, click here.
Over the many years that I've been doing this, there's been an extremely varied selection of games, from absolute gems, to complete stinkers, but each and every week there's something new, and if you're happy to try new things, then you might stumble upon a few games that you'll grow to love.

As well as a lot of games, I also create Music and am currently attempting to draw a Platdude based Pixelart every single day.
There's even daily blog posts to keep you informed about background inanities that happen in my life.

So much stuff!
Stick around, and enjoy the ride.

Really couldn't get into the whole "Redefineable Controls" stuff, yesterday.
Instead, I messed about with Tower Solitaire's rules a little, and also played around with a few other bits and pieces.

v1.024 - Added Swaps to the Tower Solitaire game.
As per @RSKGames' suggestion, I've added a couple of Swap mechanics to Tower solitaire.
You can swap any free cards in the tower, but only when they're on the same row.
You can also swap the topmost card amongst the dealt piles, too.

There's not a LOT of things you can swap, but hopefully it should be enough to make things a little bit easier in the 5 and 6 tower modes.

You can Play Tower Solitaire in the Card Games section of the Shoebox.

..?

I've enjoyed doing Shoebox for the past few months, and am currently trying to decide whether I should make a similar browser-based collection of Keyboard/Gamepad supported games.
Delving through the depths of AGameAWeek's past, I'd be able to build up a fairly interesting collection that can all be played in your browser.
.. I might even add one of those "Onscreen Controls" things for when you're playing on mobile..


If I were to do this, I've decided that a nice name might be "Browsercade", and have "designed" *cough* the logo/icon above.

Any thoughts?
Leave them below.

Another weekly remake, in the world of Petit Switch.

A lovely little grab from the AGameAWeek archives, as we revisit the teensy tiny space world of Space Popcorn!

Shoot the popcorn.
There's only one piece left.
This shouldn't take long at all.



Public Key : 4XYV34J (This seems shorter than the previous two codes.. Hopefully nothing's broke!)

You can Play Space Popcorn using a copy of Petit Computer 4, for Nintendo Switch. It's currently only available in the Japanese eShop, but you can grab hold of it using the instructions provided here.

After each release, or thereabouts because it's getting hard for even me to keep up, we get a little bit of feedback for the games.
If you'd like to join in, you can either use the Comments section, Email me, or send a Tweet.

You can Play Atoms in the ShoeBox. It's in the "Group Games" section.

@RSKGames says..


Played 3 times and lost the first time and won the second and third time. First time I lost after my very first move.


LOL! Poor @RSKGames!

v1.25 - Added "Domino Grid", a game of counting dots.


A simple, (but somewhat eye-popping) logic puzzle, this week.
A few of the dominos haven't been filled in!
Using the combination of the row/column totals (at the end of each row) along with the fact that you shouldn't be duplicating any dominos, try to fill in the missing blanks.

But.. Beware..
You should also try not to fill in any of the blanks that actually should be blank!

You can Play Domino Grid here, or wait for it to show up in your regularly scheduled Foldapuz pages.

After each release, an influx of a comment bombards the pages of the site, and we get to see what people thought of the game.

This week, RSKGames has decided to chip in, with thoughts of the gravity based, planet blasting game, Orbital Annihilation.

You can play Orbital Annihilation here.

RSKGames


In Orbital Annihilation the player has to wait till the planets are aligned at the right positions in the orbits to fire and destroy the selected planet. Takes a bit of patience and timing to get it right.

Before I dare to attempt to turn AGameAWeek into a "All in one big javascript engine" mega compilation, I think it's important to jot down a few "issues" that there might be..
