Dodge The Cog

Here is the new game I made, called Dodge the Cog
It has the same controls as flappy bird where you tap the screen to move upward.
The object is to avoid the gears, if you hit a gear or the top or bottom it is game over.
Keep going to see how many gears you can get past the screen.
A very simple game that can be fun to play.

Dodge the Bubble

I made another version of this game that is easier to play then the dodge the cog one and it's aimed at those who want to have fun and have not so much of a challenge, just fun jumping over or under bubbles that float by.
This one is good for all ages.
Instructions are easy, just tap the screen to make the ship rise, otherwise it falls.

Here is some images of the game

SolydXK Linux Operating System

Just thought I would drop a note on a new OS I tired out and am going to stay with now.
SolydXK is a great rolling release that came out of Linux Mint when it stopped supporting the rolling debian release of xfce and KDE.
It is easy to install and comes with all the toys needed, including Steam pre-installed for all you gamers.
What is a rolling release you may ask:
It means you only install it once, unlike all non-rolling releases, where you have to upgrade (which can cause errors) or re-install with every new version that comes out.
This solves the headache of constantly doing re-installs all the time.
Where some distro's on rolling releases do updates maybe once every 6 or so months, solydXK does an update once a month to keep you up to date constantly and this way it takes less time to update and less if any breakages at all.
For you window users who never used linux before, it comes in two flavors
XFCE: a simplier less cpu taxing system, more basic and great for those who just want to get the job done without all the bells and whistles.
KDE: this version comes with all the bells and whistles, there are tons of settings, so you can pretty much set up your desktop the way you want it to, including live wallpapers or dream desktop animations as your wallpaper if you want that or just use a normal wallpaper.
The forum has a great community that will help you with any questions you might have or any troubles you may encounter.
It also somes with a business edition for anyone that runs a business with all the business software pre-installed.
Again the main bonus is it's rolling release debian version base.
You can check it out at: http://solydxk.com/
Or visit the forum and ask some questions you might have at: http://forums.solydxk.com/

I'll leave you with some videos made by the community to show you solydxk in action.

Games Coming



Games Coming

Just to keep everyone updated on whats been going lately.
I am working on some games, I haven't disappeared, just busy creating them and coming up with ones that will be exciting and interesting for everyone.
I will post them here once I get them finished.
The first one will be a shooting gallery one with unlimited levels and 8 different environments, sort of a mix between whack a mole and a shooting gallery.
I have a lot more in the works (including hopefully some hidden object ones, or at least one of them, with zoom capability of course).
Back to work on the first one :)

Android Trivia Games


I decided to make some trivia games for fun.
I finished the first one named Who Am I History.
I got the idea for these from going to the movies, they used to show a trivia game before the movie would start, where the celebrity image was covered with blocks that would disappear as time goes by, revealing the celebrity image below them. They also gave clues while this was happening to help you guess who it was. I always found this a great time waster while waiting for the movie to start.
So I decided to make my own version for android.
I plan on making a few of these as time goes by with different topics.

Here is the first one

Who Am I History

















Description:
Who Am I History
A history trivia game.
You have to guess who is in the image.
You have a choice of four different people.
Object of the game is to guess who the image is before time runs out.
The quicker you guess the more points you earn.
If you earn more points you move up levels.
Each level assigns a status name to you.
Each level gets less time to guess and less points to earn making it more difficult to move to higher levels.
The boxes disappear as time ticks down revealing the image.
Clues appear to help you out.
Clues get less in higher levels.
Beat the high scores and improve your own.
There are 11 levels to reach.
A great trivia who am I game for history lovers.
100 different people to guess.
See how well you know your history and the people who made changes or are important in history.
A great brain teaser and puzzle for the whole family.

There are two versions, an ad supported version that's free to download and an ad free version that is very low priced
You can get them through the links below:

Ad supported free version:

Ad Free version:

Linux Mint now has html5 coming for the new mdm.
This got my curiosity  up since I like making things that move around a screen, so I decided to make some animated mdm themes for the Linux Mint new mdm.
You can check out all the themes I made here: http://samriggs.deviantart.com/gallery/

Now to get this working on your Linux Mint machine there is instructions and a download to install and how to get it up and running go here: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2327

There is also a thread on the Linux Mint Forum to keep you updated on more themes and updates and just general new mdm stuff here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=126979

This is a fascinating new twist on the mdm login screen allowing us to make pretty much anything that can be created in html5 for the login screen.
Another great move for linux mint.

Fun Apps


Well I decided to ad a section for all the fun apps I made and seem to keep on making in my spare time.
These are made when I get ideas in between other projects, Lights is one of them but it actually can have some real world purposes, which is why I added it in another section.

I'll leave out the sound boards as sound boards are really only sounds boards, I made two of theme just to try it out and have fun with audacity.

First one of the few I just made is the latest

Laser Guns and Steampunk Ray Guns

Description:

Have fun shooting laser guns at friends or foe with realistic looking ray guns with sound effects.

Each one comes with:
6 sound choices (choose while in ray gun choice)
turn sound off or on
primary and secondary weapons
You can turn each weapon on or off separately

A trigger like a real gun (you drag the trigger like a real gun to fire)
A battery charger button (if the gun battery runs out just press the yellow nuke button to recharge it)
Gun will not fire if safety is on or if battery needs to be charged, to make it seem more real.
Three rays:
           Green: Stun Ray
           Blue: Maim Ray
           Red: Kill Ray

It also comes with a tutorial page to explain each button.

The permissions are for the sound effect settings and a small ad as this app is ad supported.

Shock and scare your friends, family or whoever you want to with this realistic fake stun gun.
