Jovian Laser is still in the queue of “waiting for review.” It has only been five and a half days since I uploaded it. Perhaps I’ll hear something by Monday.
I went on working on another little game that I used to play on Merlin. It is a 3×3 square that you have to get the outer panels on and only the center one off. I selected red and blue as the colors. So, a red one in the center and blue ones going around the outside would constitute a “win.” It is a simple puzzle game.
This morning I added sounds, created in Garageband, for the touching to change the colors and one for winning. I made this one in Swift. I decided to not use sprite kit. I was beginning to think I should drop back down to xCode 5. I know that one a lot better.
(OK. I tried to put the picture up within the text and have it flow around the picture. Now to search for the option to do that. I finally got it moved up into the text now to put a border around it. I had to adjust the CSS file.)
I am going to test out this little puzzle on my phone a little bit more and then prepare it for uploading to the iTunesConnect site and get it into the queue. I think this one will be free. I liked that game when I was young. I am glad to get a chance to share.
Last night I went through the “paperwork” to be able to upload the space ship app, Jovian Laser, to iTunes. Afterward I received, rather quickly I might add, an email from Apple saying the app had been received and is waiting for review. Of course, I was excited to be able to make it this far. It took a long time to go to sleep.
A while back I had shown it to a couple of co-workers and they said they wanted to play it. They would pay 99 cents for it. They also wanted to see how low of a score they could get. So far, in testing, I have gotten to -558. You get a negative point for missing the space ship from your laser shots.
Now the waiting begins. Well, continues, since the waiting started last night. Wish me luck.
Now to continue with the pirate ship game, and start the magic square puzzle.
It’s like working with a puzzle. Keep at it until you get it right, or how you like it.
