Swipe'taire


Swipe'taire is a solitaire game that tests your reflexes and puts your memory skills to the ultimate challenge!

Hey forumknights! I've just released my latest game, called Swipe'taire. It's a solitaire game that requires memory skills and fast reflexes. This is a game I came up with while working on Starvenger. Nice distraction, I needed a break from my big project to work on a small project, lol.

It's a very simple game to play. You draw your first card, commit it to memory than swipe it away. Than you draw your second card and must swipe it left if it's lower or swipe it right if it's a higher value than the previous card. You must be quick as you only have 3 seconds. Correctly swiped cards gain you a point and second while incorrectly swiped cards loose you a second.

The game features an online leaderboard too! Let's see some awesome scores!

Cool game.
Clean, simple, fast paced fun!

232!

I don't mind the dots on the background so much, but those spots on the card faces causes a blur for me.

Nice distraction

372

I think it needs to speed up as you go to force the end of the game, I found that the only thing that was going to stop me was getting distracted or battery power. It revealed something quite interesting...after about 3 minutes I could almost do it without "seeing" the numbers, my brain just registered the next move subconsciously.

I've just implemented an AppGameKit version of my leaderboard, hopefully I'll do it as well and seamlessly as yours

Yeah, distractions.
I kept messing up when I noticed my time getting over 10 seconds.

Next time try it with your helmet on, with the blast shield down.
Trust your instincts. Use the force.

Not that kind of force. Seriously though, progression in difficulty would be nice.

I had trouble with it at first.

Thanks for trying it out guys! I did not see that coming! I thought I had the difficulty set and did not expect such high scores. Good show! lol

I might have to release a new version with difficulty settings. What do you think?

Thanks If you need help let me know! Are you using your own system?

I have the code written and working, it's a rewrite of the one I made in DBPro in 2011. The bit I always struggle with is making the high scores look presentable...and readable.

I'm also recording other things which should make the experience more addictive, that would suit your app. I'm comparing reaction times, clicking accuracy, "chicken" stats for people who bottle out early etc. At the end of the game I have the ability to show the player how they compare in many different ways. I'm also checking how long people play for in one session and other stats. It will be one big experiment for future apps.

Yeah JLMoondog, you need that stuff too.
Then, you could tell BatVink how many attempts it took me to get a 423.

Good idea! I've actually been dabbling with profile creation and login with agk on a server. That's something id really like to implement down the line for a few projects of mine.

That would be cool.
I need to dust off my old PHP book and do some server sided scripting myself at some point.
It would be nice to have a login for a coin based play/reward system.

For my big projects, I'd love to have a dedicated server for profiles so people can login and save data and be able to play their own personal characters across multiple games and platforms. My ultimate goal.

Same idea here.
One login handle and avatar for each user on all my games.
'Coins' rewarded in one game could be used to buy items for another.
That way, they can play the ones they are good at to help them progress in the ones they are not so good at.
On the arcade end, two monetary systems... silver coins bought with cash to play the games, and gold coins rewards to redeem prizes/in-game purchases.
That way, when they load their ID with silver at the counter, that one purchase would be used to play any of the games instead of shoveling quarters into each one.
That would save time handle/counting all the revenue, and keep the cash in the register instead of spread out in all the machines.
The login could be on a drop down list, whereas your ID is added as active when you enter the arcade and register at the counter. (keeping list small)
All they need then is to enter their PIN/Password when starting a game, and the list would be wiped clean by admin at the end of the day.
Think LAN arcade, which would be nice to have separate single player machines linked for multiplayer action.
That is my ultimate goal, but I am starting out with regular retro coin drops until I get it all worked out.
