Hello Everyone,

Well, after getting AppGameKit as a Gift just before Christmas, I set to work learning the language and make my first game. Being a smart kind of guy I decided to keep it simple and remake an old Dice game I created way back in 1995 using Quick Basic 4.5.

I'm proud to present to you Target Dice.

Source Code is included for anyone wanting to check it out and see how I managed to code this game. If you can learn anything from my efforts, then I'm a happy camper.

Please feel free to leave comments, and if you have suggestions for improvements, feel free to post your ideas.

Let me know what you think and Enjoy the game.

Cheers!

Playing even better now David
The highlighting of dice makes it many times better

Just 2 issues...

1. When the final score is shown, it says "Round 7/6" at the top.

2. It still beats me which is absolutely intolerable.

In fact, there was one round where I lost all my dice every time before reaching 20 points in the round. The computer scored 145 in one round, so it was impossible to win



Maybe in a future version you could add different levels of difficulty by using traits. e.g computer takes more risks (less predictable game) , or cautious (easier to win).

Game Download updated..

Fixed: When the final score is shown, it says "Round 7/6" at the top. Now shows proper round number.

Fixed: the exit button now fades out and says thank you for playing target dice. same as when you selected 'N'o when asked if you wanted to play again.

Added: Music toggle button top right of screen, hit it to turn music off, or back on.

Edits: adjusted some of the timing and pauses in the game.

Still to come..

I'm going to change the end game to have you use the mouse to select Play again, or Quit, instead of pressing the Y or N keys. this will keep it more in line with the mouse input for everything else..

I'll also add either a visual or audio indicator that it's Players turn, or Computer's turn

and if you guys think of anything else that might help the game feel/play better, let me know.

Cheers!

Great game. Really enjoyed it.

The only thing I though worth mentioning was that it stores the high scores of the computer player, rather than just that of the player - I'm sure that's intentional but it hurts my pride that the computer has knocked out 320 when I've barely scraped 200+ ha.

Otherwise, the game is really slick and plays really well. Good job.
