... and only make proper winform applications from now on. Things that could benefit me at work etc. I have been working very hard on a tool for my job, but decided I needed a break and would work on a different winforms app in the meantime.

Unsurprisingly, I made a game :P

Have you ever played Snake? Have you ever played Snooker? Welcome to the unholy mash-up of the two:

Snaaker:

You all know the rules of Snaaker right? I mean Snooker...::

Game is go:

Building a break

Forgot to mention you are the White ball, but I think that becomes fairly self evident as the only moving item on the screen...

No more screenshots, as it is too hard to press Alt-Gr & print screen at the same time, and I am too lazy to make an automatic screenshot taker :P

OK, just one more:

Let me know your highest scores. Anyone hit the 147 maximum?

    You rage quit on life or just the game? I mean, 42 is the answer after all.

    Well... Maybe... "I never really was on your side"



    I'd say work on it a bit more, visually and HUD info/score popups. Shouldn't be to much work to have it slapped on a plastic lunch box and now *bangs on table* you're selling it, you wanna sell it. Well... It is strangely addicting, perfect for phones/tablets!

    Sell it? I thought about making a tutorial out of it....

    To be honest, the main reason I stopped making games is I could never make them up to the visual standards I demand of myself, but this, nah, I just don't see it as a seller. I mean, look how much polish it would really require to get it feeling professional, like ZoS for instance? That would also need a proper artist, so I'd be back on the same track of not being happy with the game..

    Better to make things for fun and tutorials, less pressure :)

    I am taking the Notch way out, before getting my first hit game though..

    Although I've seen games being sold and successful on the Play and IOS stores, with artwork not far above the devart you're using...
