Hi all,

Today i've uploaded my first made game ever. It's called "Rastermind".
I think i've much to learn, so please comment on the game with your tips and tricks.

UPDATE 15-05-12:
Yesterday I uploaded a new version. In this new version I made some enhancements and fixed all reported bugs:
- Used a better font at the numbers;
- switched the font color of the numbers to black;
- fixed the Firefox bug related to the position of textblocks
- made a new rastersystem consisting of sprites instead of textblocks. This provides a better clickable area coverage.
- Block under the highest number is always yellow, provides better tracking when going back.
- When going back the block underneath the last number stays for a while.
- Fixed the overlapping text bug when "how to" and "Give up" screen are open at the same time.
- Made some better use of the or/else functionality.
- Exactly 99 events!

I'll upload a projectfile later.

Play Rastermind here

Have Fun!Mark4Media2012-05-15 07:40:47

I got to 81 in 201 seconds on my first try. It looks pretty good. A minor bug: if you click 'give up' and then click on 'how to?', the text overlaps. And a suggestion: make the last placed block yellow because it's easy to lose track of where it is, especially if you want to go back a few steps.

Hi Ramones,

Thanks for your reply. I'll fix the text overlap.
Good suggestion on the last placed block, I'll add that too!

Kind regards,

Good game ;-p, this piano music is really good choice for this kind of game.

Same suggestions as ramones about last number changing color.

Improve your text display, seems letters and words never centered into squares.

About numbers font & color :

- Use a less "bold" font giving here a little smudge effect.
- Try black color instead of white.

Hi all,

I've made some adjustment to the game. Currently there is one issue. I made a forum thread for it: Issue

Adjustments made:
Font color of the numbers changed to black;
Font of the numbers changed;
The last number block is always yellow;
Made some adjustement to making of the grid and placing of the blocks to make them more centered;
Fixed the bug when the give up screen and how to screen are open at the same time;

As soon as the issue is solved i'll upload the updated game!

Kind regards,
MAD (Mark aka Dark)

Avoid "FF", Chrome as nearly the same engine than "FF" ... but sometimes 2 times more fast ! ... and text is displayed in Chrome same as in IE (except always in front in Chrome but seems link to webgl).

Your new number font and black color is perfect. Don't loose time with browser bugs ...
