A pragmatist who brings ideas to life in digital form... like a modern Frankenstein

This post was originally published on kaapedev.wordpress.com. The old blog is no longer actively maintained, but I’d still like to keep my old articles about game development with Xbox Live Indie Games.

I just submitted Avatar Tower for playtest. As my Microsoft Live subscription runs out during the next weeks it might be a good idea to get the game done.

During the weekend I implemented all missing features, like combos, timer, breaking platforms, a new background screen (which is just a changing background color), increasing difficulty, highscore, stars to pick up, avatar animations and an adequate Game Over screen. We’ll see how the community values the game. For me it’s a small game for breaks or for younger players, like the original icytower.
