AVOIDAL – New Flash Game Released

Games

My latest game AVOIDAL just launched today over on Newgrounds!

This one is a very challenging mouse skills game with a mechanic I find to be quite fun.

Don’t take my word for it though–check it out!

For those of you logged in with a Newgrounds account there are 23 medals (some very tough) to win.

Here is a gameplay trailer.

You can also play the game on AVOIDAL.COM

AVOIDAL was originally made for the most recent Ludum Dare 48hr game competition. I then worked on it further for the Experimental Gameplay Project theme of “Zero Buttons.” AVOIDAL was also my entry into the Ludum Dare “October Challenge” where you try and sell a game. It ended up getting a sponsorship from Newgrounds.

Contentric – New Flash Game Released

Games

I participated in the March 2010 Experimental Gameplay Project’s theme of You Only Have 10 Seconds and Contentric was the result:

The main concept is that the player’s actions effect the movement of the blocks to be avoided. This in essence makes the player their own worst enemy. I was experimenting around with nested spring feedback systems and this concept of player as AI when I stumbled upon a fun and playable prototype that went on to become this game.

I spent about 7 days developing the version I submitted to the Experimental Gameplay Project website and then I worked for a bit longer polishing it up to get it ready to seek sponsorship.  I’m happy to report that Armor Games picked up the primary sponsorship on it and Contentric officially launched yesterday!

Power Vacuum – New Flash Game Released

Games

Spent the week creating a new Flash game for a November Mochi Media contest where the theme was “60 Seconds”.  Power Vacuum is the result:

Concept:

Help the atom on each level recover its lost electrons! You only have 60 seconds total to collect all 100 missing electrons from the different levels.

The screenshot above shows 4 of the 20 available levels.  10 levels are picked at random each time you play.  The entire game only lasts 60 seconds (as per the contest rules.)

I created the background textures by cropping and filtering some lovely watercolor textures made by Hillary Luetkemeyer.  The artist released them for use and remix under a CC Attribution license.

Feel free to leave any feedback below in the comments.
