I want you all to play (and rate) Globez, my latest Flash game.
It’s a game I made in a couple of days starting from the Dungeon Raid iPhone game engine made with Flash and AS3. The aim of the game is drawing a line to connect globes of the same color to make points. Then, new globes will appear, but giving a lower score. All of this in 60 seconds.
It’s really a simple game I am also porting to iPhone, but mostly I made it to write a complete series of tutorials about the integration with 3rd part APIs.
I want to spend a couple of words about Playtomic: the service seems to be in big troubles and it could close soon, due to a lack of funds. It’s an awesome service and you won’t find valid alternatives to it around the web, so I hope you can understand what we are about to miss and maybe help with a premium subscription. I have to say there’s a big issue with communication between the author and the users, unfortunately programmers aren’t that skilled in public relations, anyway it would be a pity if Playtomic should close.
Back to the game, yesterday I submitted it to Newgrounds where it scored a nice 3.21, today I am uploading it on Kongregate and now I am planning to sell the full commented source code on activeden at a reasonable price just to see (and report) how much you can earn from using such service, and eventually release for free the iPhone version I am making with Stencyl.
Last but not least, there’s an upcoming game using the same engine, but with a way more complex gameplay.
