Half-Bit Software

Random Grab-Bag 1

It’s been awhile, and I’ve been anything but idle, so I figured it’d be a good idea to drop a quick note about the silly things I’ve been up to lately. For starters, I pushed iOS7 friendly versions of The Dungeon and Panic Attack up to the App Store. I also made the latter free for a week - get it quick, folks!

Panic Attack Theme!

For Panic Attack, I also wanted to modernize its look a bit, so I updated my theme a bit. This was actually something I really wanted to do before iOS7 came out, but it didn’t quite make the cut. I regret it a bit now, but I’m glad that it turned out well. It’s kind of hard for me not to use it. Check it out! I also spent a bit of time just doing a little bit of cleanup and polish on Panic Attack. Despite my best efforts and all common sense, I’m not quite done with the poor game yet.

Shiny!

Angraxian

I’ve also been working a bit on a little SHMUP idea, more or less inspired by Chillaxian, a mellow, groovy riff on Galaxian. Mine goes pretty much whole-hog in the opposite direction, hoping to be a fast, angry, almost psychotic take on the space shooter. It’s also my first foray into SpriteKit. (Hence the quiet - most of the things I’ve been working on have been under NDA!)

And More?

I’ve also kind of started playing around with another little SpriteKit project. Last night was a public Art/Code night thing for the local indie gamedev scene, and I started futzing with…well, just look. It’s a bit silly right now, but I’m hoping to make it cooler soon!
