I started making simple games over the last few years and thought I would post some of them here. This is more of a post for me to keep my memories in one place. These games were created in GameSalad except for Salvador Dali Painting Match which was created in Unity3D. The games are no longer available but I may use them as reference points in future. The base code from Astro Adventure can be found in my latest game “Jetman Galactic Mars” and I will be making a video to show the journey.
The Story so far….
The Evil Dr Ephram Bottom-worthy strange trousers has declared war on a peaceful race of people called the Fukarwee living in the outer reaches of Centaurus A. This simple race has been living alone and happy for many years and this is all due to a rare mineral found in one of their moons. This provides the people with a much needed energy source which is used to sustain their planet and life.
The Evil Dr has sent hordes of organic self mutating creatures to invade the mine and destroy all equipment and workers prior to a full invasion. As a last hope, the head of Fukarwee space program has sent rocket parts to the moon and you as their number one space explorer has volunteered to go to the mine and rid the moon of those nasty invaders.
As you progress through the mine, you collect the rocket parts to build the large rockets needed to take quantity of the mineral back to the home world. Use missile and rocket packs to destroy the enemy and progress through the levels until you have completed your mission and returned enough of the rare mineral to allow your planet to build the defences needed to ward off any future attack.
You are the worlds most excellent doctor who has designed a ship which can travel through the human body. You are paid in cash for each virus you collect and filter out but must avoid the patients own immune system which is hunting down all foreign bodies. Help is provide by your external support team who send you speed, bomb and shield packs to help you defend your ship. But for every while or red blood cell you destroy, you will lose money.
1. Highly addictive and great fun!
2. Fast action pace.
3. Bombs, Shields and Speed packs to help you on your mission.
4. Level up every 240 seconds if you can survive.
5. Requires strategy to earn the most money.
6 .The games keeps you coming back for more.
To Play, press thumb on left or right of screen to rotate ship. Collect weapon packs and use them by selecting the desired action button at the bottom of the screen.
Move your ship on to the angry virus to attach them to your ship. The when you see the big rotating/twinkling cleaner appear, move your ship over to deposit the virus. The more you clean, the more money you will earn.
iDump Toilet Training
Little Tommy Tinkle needs to be toilet trained and its down to you to help him learn to avoid all the distractions and complete his training.
The goal of the game is to aim little Tommy and help him aim in to the toilet. Watch out for obstacles and keep an eye on his gas pressure gauge as he only has limited fart power.
It is not as easy as it looks but is funny to play.
* Watch out for worm hole portals.
* Watch out for crazy angry birds.
* Watch out for circular saws and fan blades.
* Timing and judgment is everything if you want to complete all the levels in this game.
* Collect stars for bonus points and be aware of the fart gauge as Tommy has limited time to complete the level.
* This game contains 2 puzzle worlds to complete. Complete all the levels in the first world to unlock the second.
I created this game when my daughters friends at school challenged me to see if I could make a game of a baby shooting crap in to a toilet and getting the game published on the app store. I tried to make it as fun as possible and it seems that people at school love this game so hope it becomes a winner. The minds of kids? I took the game offline once they had downloaded it.
Zombie Barnyard Animal Defence
In the crazy world of Zombies, a mad local professor and his even more insanely twitchy wife have become zombie animal activists and have gone on a rampage and released all of the animals from the Zombie barnyard. These bewildered creatures have been scattered across Zombie Ville and it’s your job as the farmer’s only son to go out into this crazy world and retrieve those lost creatures.
You play the game simply enough by instructing your zombie character to walk but then you have to draw a path on the screen with your finger to allow the zombie to walk over dangerous obstacles and collect the animals. Once all animals have been collected on the level, you make your way to the flagpole to complete your mission.
It sounds simple enough but watch out for evil bats, spikes and the mad professor and his wife!
This game was created in 2009 as a challenge to make a game and have it published on the App Store in 30 days.
When I was a child, one of the games we used to play was called Plastic Soldiers or Army Men. The idea is to knock down the enemy soldiers which have been hidden amongst toy buildings and vegetation.
The game “Plastic Soldiers” is based on this childhood game but instead of throwing stones or marbles, you are given a tank which can fire powerful explosive shells.
This game contains 8 levels of mayhem across different islands. Travel trough lands of ice and snow, through the sea and finally to the moon!
The game is simple to play and most of all its fun! Pick up and play when you have a few minutes spare and enjoy the character voices and taunts. Each level starts when you fire the first shell. You have 60 seconds per level to clear a number of soldiers. Earn bonus time by hitting objects flying in the sky.
When each level starts, it will move from far right to far left so the player can see the layout of the level before play.
There are three levels of play. Easy, Medium and Hard. Each difficulty level will adjust the elements of play and the amount of soldiers you need to get within the time limit. When you run out of time, you have the option to play the level again.
The adventures of Kaveman Karl features a famous or rather “famous for having a head like an orange” explorer who has been sent back through time. Being a man of low education and not very dexterous. It seemed a good idea by his comedic friends to teach him a number of lessons. The first being life saving (himself), the second (flexibility and control) to advance through the levels and survive and thirdly to collect a number of golden bones buried on each level.
Buried in the ground in each level, there are many items to find. Each item earns points and at the end of each level, Karl is awarded gems based on the amount of points he has. You must find five golden bones before you can progress to the next level.
Jump under each block to see if you can find an item, some blocks are too hard to dig while others can unleash nasty monsters so be careful. Jump on top of small monsters to kill them and avoid others.
Help Karl to complete his challenge and you may help him to find his diary.
I liked the cartoon version of “The Ricky Gervais Show”. I thought it would be good to make a game based on Karl Pilkington but make him a hero.
Salvador Dali Painting Match
Salvador Dalí was best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters.
Dalí was highly imaginative and created many beautify works of art. Some say he was crazy and others believe he was the Einstein of the art world. No-one can deny his works are both interesting and thought provoking.
This game combines art with picture matching skills. There are 10 levels of play and the player can play any level. Each level is against the clock with the fastest times held in a fast time score board.
Make a tower of animal blocks
Welcome to Animal Towers, a fun game for all the family.
This addictive game will have you coming back for more with its two game modes, speed variance and required timing, its fun for all the family.
* Race clock – in this mode, the player is required to stack a number of blocks before the time expires, leave the stack alone for too long and your time is up.
* Level up – the level up mode requires you to stack a number of specified blocks. Once this is done, you progress to the next level.
Humpty Dumpty Rescue
This simple fun game pits the player against the clock. Its based on the classic Pachenko game but here you have many humpty dumpty’s falling down which you have to catch in a basket. The more you save, the longer the game plays. Spoons help which Egg cups and Crocks try and steel as many as they can find.
