All the Other Games

If you read my Twitter & Facebook posts it may feel like I only work on Train Sim.  While Train Sim is my most popular game with very active & vocal fans, I have 22 other games I made that are also quite popular.  So after my last Train Sim release I decided to focus on updating all my other games.  Here are some of the highlights of the awesome new features now available.

Kids Train Sim

Kids Train Sim received a much needed overhaul.  I actually deleted all the scripts/code from this game and replaced them with them with code from Train Sim.  This I was able to provide all the updates, fixes & features of Train Sim but in a more kid friendly package.  Features like train decoupling, improved passengers, manual door control, custom environments & new user interface are now available in Kids Train Sim.  While I was there, I also added a new City Scene & New Trains.  All of this took a while to implement but I think the end result was worth it.

3 Jewels Sequel

Because every game company should have a Match 3 Game!  As some of you may know I have a very popular Match 3 game called 3 Jewels.  I have been secretly working on a sequel called 3 Jewels 2 with 300 new challenge levels, new graphics and awesome new effects and game mechanics.  3 Jewels 2 is currently available on Google Play and so far the reviews are 5 stars!

Aquarium Sim

Aquarium Sim is one of my newer games that I am trying to promote.  So far its launch was a bit bumpy but it is improving.  On this latest update I improved the Custom Environment Feature.  Just like in Train Sim you can now move items around after they are placed.  I also fixed a few bugs that Improved the overall experience.  I am happy to report that after this new update the average rating on Google Play has improved to 4.0.

Kids Car Racers

I was watching my son Play Mario Kart and noticed that the karts in that game can launch things (mostly shells) at each other.  I decided that this would be a fun feature in Kids Car Racers.  So the new version of Kids Car Racers now allows players to launch Barrels at the other cars.  I also added a new Alternate Reality Scene which allows players to race cars, well in their living room and wherever they are.  The scenery from their environment comes directly from the camera just like in Pokemon Go.  The effect is quite cool.

Aquarium Sim Update

Last week I worked on a new feature for Aquarium Sim that allows users to create custom Aquarium Environments.  This is a feature I always wanted to include on launch but never had the time to implement.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  Rather then just being visually appealing Aquarium Sim now also allows you to be creative.

This new version of Aquarium Sim is now available for Android & Amazon Devices with iOS version has been uploaded & is waiting for review.

Aquarium Sim is Live!

I am happy to announce that after months of work Aquarium Sim for Android is now live on the Google Play store.

Working on an Aquarium Game

Recently I started working on a new Aquarium Simulator game (at least while the next Train is being built by my 3D Artist for Train Sim).

Aquarium Sim

As usual the game is going to be free and have no in-app purchases.  It will feature both a freshwater aquarium as well as a marine (saltwater) one.

So far I have the Fish AI complete.  They swim within the bounds of their aquarium along with avoidance of their environment.  Currently you can also feed the fish, as well as tap the aquarium to watch them follow your finger.

Currently I am working on a screen that will allow you to setup the fish in the aquarium and provide you some information about each of the fish.  This is actually a challenge to do, as my screen has too many buttons and is currently not intuitive.   Maybe I have to divide it into 2 screens instead.
