After some frustration, I've finally published my first game. It's a bit ... rough, I'll admit it. But I'm glad I was able to get it up there at last. This tutorial was exactly what I needed for uploading to Kongregate:

Diction
- 50 levels
- Complete the puzzles based on word-sounds
- Click or Tap on the words to move them to the right position

At first I used the MoveTo plugin, but then I experienced some difficulty uploading, so I eventually replaced the movements with standard Set X / Set Y actions. If I get any kind of constructive feedback and interest on this, I'll upload a revised version with the MoveTo plugin since I've got the Kongregate upload figured out.

This took me about a month to create, mainly because I revised the interface a few different times, figured out Formulas, and waited too long to figure out creating objects from a dummy Image layout. I tried uploading to the Scirra Arcade but it said I included unsupported plugins--and that was after I completely removed every reference to the MoveTo plugin in a different version of the game. Alas, what can you do.

The game could do more, of course. But hopefully it's useful for just a short burst of interest from you before you move on to other things. Let me know what you think as any suggestion you have I can use to make better games or something more interesting / fun for you to play.

Interesting game! I can honestly say I haven't played a word game quite like this before. I have to ask though if you were trying to make a statement with it, hehe. I only ask because there's a minority group of scholars who want words to be spelled exactly how they sound when you say them out loud, which is the purpose of this game. Either way, very clean and fun to play! Several of them were quite difficult.

I actually wasn't trying to make a statement with this game, but I appreciate your comments about that movement, @swordofsolace. Very good point, @czar! I did fail to take into account different pronunciations based on regions throughout the world.

I debated whether to update the original post, but decided to leave it as is. I uploaded a different version of the game to Google Play:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... eo.diction

The look is a bit different from how I had it before. There are 70 levels now, broken up into 7 different packs (10 levels each). There's a level selector screen that (hopefully) keeps track of scores in the individual packs. I got the MoveTo plugin working just fine.

This is my first game ever created and ever uploaded, so I imagine it's not the greatest thing since sliced bread. But it really is completely free, with no IAPs or Ads of any kind. I did that mainly because I couldn't quite figure out how to do ads or price it, but also because I just want it out there for now and I'll worry about pricing for other games/apps I create down the road.

I haven't actually installed this on my own phone/tablet yet, so hopefully it works as intended! :)
