Early version of Bodmaster available on Android

An early version of Bodmaster has been released on Android! Are your mathematical skills up to the challenge of completing the 16 puzzles currently available.

As the mobile and Facebook markets surged over the past few years, one of the prominent genres has been word puzzles. From variations of Scrabble to anagrams and beyond… there’s been plenty ways to test your

language skills with enjoyable gameplay. However there’s not been many mathematical ones and as a freak that has always enjoyed maths, I thought “I should make one”… I did!

Bodmaster is a game where you must identify the segments and stick them in the right order, applying the rules of BODMAS (or BIDMAS). The original BODMASter game was kinda cool to play but oh so ugly. I’ve given is a new look, fixed a few issues and also added saving so that you don’t need to start from scratch every time! This has been released on Android for now, with mobile and HTML5 being the main long term targets.

I’d love to get your feedback! Let me know your thoughts. Also if you know teenagers or even better – people in teaching – please share it with them! If there’s a positive reception then I’d love to add hundreds of puzzles and make a full game out of this.

Introducing my next XBLIG title Avatar Runner

Avatar-Runner---Mid-2014Avatar Runner is the forthcoming Xbox Live Indie Game that lets you take a relaxing Sunday afternoon jog down the beach or sets you sprinting through a nightmare world. It takes the track based gameplay and banking system of HexStackIt and immerses it in a whole new world.

There will also be a mode allowing you to run to songs from your Xbox Media Library, keeping pace with the tune. Whats more there will be a tournament mode where you and your friends with compete for the highest score over several runs.

Update for Invertical available

The unique and charming puzzle platform game Invertical has been updated with a number of improvements.

Art Pass
The graphics have been tweaked slightly to give a slightly lower contrast, a bit more detail here and there. You’ll also see that now instead of the black borders at the side of the screen there is a grey pattern.

Level Design
The true enjoyment of Invertical is trying to figure out your route. Whilst the game needs some platforming challenge, aspects of it were maybe a little too hard. Now the more complex platforming elements have been simplified. Make no mistake though, this is still a tough game to complete! Especially if you try to collect all the books and scrolls! If you’ve had difficulty getting past a certain level, get the update and see if you can complete it now.

  • Controls: New controller support and improved control system.
  • Movement: You’ll no longer come to a stop when you land. Keep on running!
  • Front End: New GUI, most notably the Chapter Select screen.
  • Bug Fixes: As always, there’s been a host of bug fixes.

It is currently available on IndieCityItch.io and Desura.

Most Oxygen Addict games are now free!

With the exception of Invertical, all of my games on PC & Android are now available for free! You can get all of the games on my site

x-orbtekposter2X-Orbtek is an arcade style game for PC & Android where you chase after orbs whilst avoiding swarms of enemies and competing for the global high score. There used to be a free and full version but now the free version has been depreciated and the full version made free. In this version you get new enemies, extra pickups and you can unlock extra themes. Download it on IndieDB.

 

X-Orbtek-II-Game-BoxThe recently released sequel X-Orbtek II is also available for free. The controls are much slicker and X-Orbtek II also introduces combat so you’ll have to dodge enemy fire whilst firing well aimed shots back. To make things even more exciting you can play local multiplayer. With four players it is a frantic and enjoyable gameplay experience. You can get X-Orbtek II on IndieDB for free or if you get it through IndieCity where you can also earn achievements. The Xbox 360 version isn’t free – I’ve no choice in that! But at 80 MSP it is as cheap as you can get.

You can also pick up the full version of Captain Getsu for free. This is a top down shooter where you can change your colour to match you target and deal more damage. Be careful though, it will lead to more enemies coming your way! You can now get the full version with additional levels for free from my site.

 

 

tragAnother game made available for free is The Really Annoying Game. This is a puzzle game based around four irritating characters. Each have their own unique characteristics and you’ll need to use them to figure out the way to crystals in the many levels. It is a tongue in cheek game based around a solid puzzle mechanism and adds in some deliberately annoying elements that will have you amused and frustrated in equal proportions. Grab it from my site today.

HexStackIt, HexStackIt 2D, The Legendary Tales of the Heroic Dan McSpikerton and all my existing games remain free of course!

X-Orbtek II released on Xbox 360

X-Orbtek II and Minecraft sat side by side on my X-box. This pleases me.

I’m delighted to announce that X-Orbtek II has been released on Xbox Live Indie Games!

X-Orbtek II is a new blend of arcade style gameplay. You’ll be chasing after orbs whilst dodging swarms of enemies. If all the orbs disappear it is game over so the game is quick paced arcade highscore chasing gameplay.

Be warned – the enemies will take shots at you but you’re not defenseless. Blast them back or use your mines, bombs or pickups to clear out enemies. Alternatively choose one of the non-combat modes (or custom mode) to remove combat and just chase after orbs.

There’s also local multiplayer and with four players it can be insanely good fun! If you get the opportunity to play with a couple of friends, I’d recommend it.

You can pick it up now for just 80 Microsoft Points!
