No Sleep!!!

No Sleep!!!

So i did not manage to get much sleep last night, work up around 3, and couldn't go back to sleep so started coding! I started having a look at PhoneGap again. Its something i have tried out in the past, but never really grasped what i would use it for. I think now i could try out a few Html5 games, since i enjoyed working on the game for the JS13k competition!

So far i have setup the Cordova solution, and have implemented a simple FPS on the canvas.
I cant believe how simple it is use, I also deployed to my HTC Sensation and Xperia X10 and performance seemed resonable.

Its not very good on my laptop, but then again what did I expect on a lowish spec laptop!

I guess i have to see how far i can push the app, its always more complicated working on supporting multiple devices!!

General Update

Finally my submission is up on the JS13kGames site, its good to see it up finally!

The games by other people seem pretty cool too, I've never created a HTML5 game, nor entered any sort of competition to create some software, so its been real hard to judge what level is expected etc. I suppose the 13k limit is pretty cool, as it makes you think more about what you are coding, and its more about what you can fit in rather than making it look nice!

In other news, my google rank seems like its getting up there, I annoys me that everytime i google my name it comes up with some horse photography or some rock and roll geezer. Its about time i got on top!

I've also decided to give up on the bouncing ball game thing, I'll just leave my AgentXIII game in the JS13k competition as the bouncing ball game isn't really going anywhere; and now i have coded the logic, i'm getting real bored adding new platforms/walls/hazards! I enjoyed coding gravity etc, it's something I don't get to do everyday

Who knows, maybe one day I'll pick it back up!
