It has been two months since the anything was released but I’ve finally got around to a creating something new!
BODMASter is a very different game to what I’ve previously created and you could argue it isn’t a game. It is a simple puzzle game based around basic mathematical principles. The idea was to create something that would work quite well on a mobile device as a quick 30 second puzzler whilst waiting for the bus but perhaps more importantly, something that could be used in a classroom with interactive whiteboards. For that reason rather than getting you to enter values, you must put together the pieces of a puzzle to determine the sum that provides the answer. Naturally of course a few red herrings are there to make it extra interesting.
So far I’ve only produced this prototype which if I’m being honest is probably about 20 – 3 x 4 hours work, spent whilst being distracted by nattering on MSN, Twitter & watching music videos. There’s only 10 puzzles but you get to see how things would progress in the game. Naturally the final game would have masses of puzzles plus ideally I would add support for creating your own puzzle by importing CSV files or similar. Should I create a full version then on top of making it look prettier, I’d like to have a more “countdown” style mode as well plus maybe something like 7 simple words where you have multiple puzzles to solve. Not sure whether it will progress though, we’ll see!
Anyway, check it out and if anyone would be interested in a full version then let me know and I’ll maybe look at getting one done!
