Coding top-down movement with Box2D (And presenting my new project)

Sometimes you decide you want to code a specific game genre once in your life, and until you develop something like what your mind pictured, you'll be a slave of your mind. Nothing more will be done until you fulfill your inner gamedev wishes!

That's the story of me. I always loved Top-down action games. Be it an ARPG like Legend of Zelda series, a brawler like Super Bomberman or a car stealing nirvana like PlayStation 1's GTA 2, I love'em all. Instigating, I never tried to code one... Until now.

Pixly: Making art on mobile

This is Pixly a tool that I've been deving for the last 6 months.
Frustrated with every attempt to find a good tool which would allow me to create pixel art on my phone, I thought it would better spend that energy developing a new tool, so I did.

Happy New Year! How I Evolved in 2013

Hi guys! For the last post of the year, I decided to write a "post-mortem" of this year, here it goes.

The crazy year of 2013 was surprising for me. I've accomplished many things, yet I let a lot of things to desire. I acquired many skills, but most of them are not perfected. I started less projects, made much more, but the majority is not finished. Let's talk about this.

How To Generate Procedural Racetracks

Tracks generated by the algorithm presented here

The amount of procedural games nowadays is very big. From Minecraft to Canabalt, the replayability that this form of random game gives is very appealing to a lot of players; And to developers too, that sometimes doesn't have enough time or skill to create levels good enough to keep players entertained for long time spans.

You Only Get One Nap ported to Android!

Yes! Now my entry to the 28th Ludum Dare works on android too!
I ported it by the night, it took around 1~2 hours, it wasn't hard, I had some gotchas when it came to getting "responsible" input, but I got rid of everything and now it is very stable :) .

Water ring toss(aka Aquaplay) prototype

Ok, tell me, have you EVER played a water ring toss game? Sure you had. Every child has played this terrific time waster. So you probably know the mechanics, right?

Push one button, the water will apply an impulse in the rings, then you just hope that it will hook around the stick.
Easy as that.
"If it is this easy, then why don't I do this?" And then I started working.
