Siesta Time

Sometimes, you’ve just got to let an idea take a break for a while… I had a great game idea, and I got really excited about it… An endless runner (because there aren’t enough of those games around.)

But I’m not going to rush it. I’ll post some shots when it advances…

In the meantime, check out:

Age of Monsters

It’s a good way to pass the time 🙂



Yep, what a milestone. 10 downloads of Box Blaster. Most of them (possibly all!) have been from me grabbing someone’s phone and downloading it for them.

Not the best form of advertising, but it’s the best I’ve got.

So I went and had a look at the games that appear in the same list when I search for Box Blaster. Some have 500,000! I have 10.

So what am I doing wrong? Who knows! But, I suspect:

1. My logo needs to be a bit brighter, with a bit more punch.

2. My app page needs a refresh, too. I should try and make some proper promo images. Cartoons seem popular… maybe a pilot giving a thumb’s up.

3. Everything needs to be brighter. Think JJ Abrams and his les flares… really got to ramp it up.

So that’s the new direction… we’ll see how we go.

You’ll notice I haven’t even mentioned fixing the game yet. With 10 downloads, the game doesn’t even matter.

Box Blaster update

I know there’s five people that can’t wait for this one! Box Blaster got an update!

It’s only little: I added a ranking system so people get a reward, and I fixed a few little bugs that were bothing me (the score wasn’t lined up with the high score text, and the black fade out that appears when you die was missing a pixel around each edge.)

The next update will be just as small. My aim is to do a little bit each time and make it constantly better.

Time will tell if that works!
