Still early work, but the game mechanics are basically finished. A theme for the graphics is still undetermined.

I've got the vertical and horizontal match detection finished, as well as swapping gems. I've also changed the graphics and sound a little bit since the video.

lol yea it's a feature. Anyway, I used a different codec to compress the video and reuploaded it.

Lately I've been caught up on the graphics, decided to go with a kitten theme. (cause everyone loves kittens!)

I think it took me longer to draw the ball of yarn than it did the window frame or even the cats. I like my curtains, but they just don't seem to fit in very well.

I've added a download link to what I have so far if anyone wants to test it. See first post for link.

I just played it for about 10 minutes and it works really well. It's fluid, responsive and fun. Is there any way to win or lose right now?

The sprites are quite nice as well. You might consider adding a few subtle shadows (the ambient occlusion kind of passive obfuscation, if you know what I mean) for yarn balls next to the wood (at the sides, top and bottom) to add a bit more plasticity to the scene. Also, the cats on top have got their shadows above themselves instead of below, which looks a little strange.

One more thing about the gameplay though, it's somewhat difficult to move a ball diagonally. I didn't even know this was possible at first and found out by accident. Sometimes I need more than 5 tries until the game finally recognizes my intention. Apart from that - very nice and motivating. It's cool to trigger those occasional "chain reactions".

Cause it's not suppose to be possible! I only discovered it recently myself, so I think it's a bug that just crept up. Glad it's working smoothly though.


I'm still working out all the mechanics, so graphics were kind of a secondary thing so far. The cats, well, I just put them in randomly with little thought. I'm just glad it didn't crash!
