I started working on this a few days ago, yes I worked on Xmas lol Anyway, I think the game is coming a long pretty nice and I did listen to your feedback about block builder the orginal. So you should be able to see several adjustments as well as new addon's as recomend and a few art changes GUI wise. Please let me know your constructive thoughts are about the game please. Thank you in advance.

Nice concept. Lose the white grid, it is unnecessary. Maybe you should look into doing this in the new mobile platform TGC has going for it. Sounds like a simple phone app that might be fun.

Looks fun! I agree about the white grid. Perhaps a different color would be better, something that matches the background.

I like the white lines... either maybe make them thinner or apply the hazard black and white to it

I agree I was not a fan of the white grid color. Luckly becuause I did this all code wise,any image adjustments are super simple. As for a phone app, I could convert it to a windows phone app easly but what 3-8 year old has a phone? I mean my 9 year old does not have a phone yet but do other children have phones at that age? If so I guess phone app route might be nice.

I didn't know it was for kids I thought it would get more complicated over time. But there are games parents buy on their phones just to shut their kids up.

What is this written in?

haha Neuro... thanks for making my night... did you see that picture on the other thread yet?


Basically never had a father... no idea what one is... did not realise until I was about 15 that I was supposed to have one... and yet still do not understand that bond...

Mother is distant eitherway now.

by Plural I was indicating exactly what you laid bare

Wow I'm shocked by the poor parenting storys above. Not claiming my parents were God's gift to the world but wow. Also shocked about the above samples of parenting. Me and my kids are fairly envoled togethier and fairly interactive. I guess were not the norm. Anyway to answer questions above, its written in Visual Basic 2010.

Every spoiled couple years old idiot, on every parts of this miserable planet has got a freakin phone with itself of some kind. But they shouldn't have, i think we all can agree on this, even if this is a development site / forum.

I am suprised this is for very young kids. I couldnt make head nor tail of what you were to do from that video lol The game looks great for what it does. I think you should go the AppGameKit route and mobile it. It would suit the mobile platform better IMHO. As for the white grid I would defnintely lighten the white or make it smaller atleast. It is a bit off putting but nothing major.

I think you mentioned in the vid you would be looking for 10 dollars for this? Sorry but not a chance. I try and buy indie games as much as possible to support the community, even games I know I will never play but that is way to much for a game like this. I would think either 99c on the mobile or free with adds. That is until you make a name for yourself. Also I havent seen any branding. Who or what is your company? Do you have a website?

You are obvioulsy taking this serious which is great and something I would always support but you need to be more realistic for your very first game. I think Plants Vs Zombies (which is a huge game with lots of play time) was less than 10 when it was first released. It went up when it got popular but can be bought for cheap now. This game doesnt seem to have anywhere near the play time of PvZ. Also parents who want to shut there kids up with a game will more than likely look for something free first. So maybe free with adds on the mobile platforms would be the best option.

Just my 2c Great job though and good luck with it!
