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 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.
New Versions for Everyone!
For the first time in a long time, the newest versions my major games are available for iOS, Android & Windows Store in the same time. I usually focus on updating Android first and then spend the time to port the new updates to iOS & Windows (because iOS and Windows is much harder to do). In reality this means that the iOS & Windows Store versions of Train Sim, Flight Sim, Car Crashers & Kids Car Racers are often 2 versions behind the Android counterparts.
However because the last few versions of my games had some fairly significant updates I spent the time necessary to update these games for all the platforms.
Here are the highlights of the recent changes:
- Flight Sim received its 10th airplane and some major bug fixes. Version 2.1.2 available now on iOS and Android
- Car Crashers received a T34 Tank you can crash and some significant user interface fixes. Version 1.8.6 is now available for Android, iOS & Windows Store (Windows Phone Coming soon)
- Kids Car Racers received an 18th car (GoKart) and an improved menu with pictures, so that kids can easily see what scene they are choosing. Version 1.9.2 is available on Android and is under review for iOS. Windows Store/Phone coming soon.
- Most importantly Train Sim has been updated to contain 3D Cabins for all trains. Version 3.4.4 is also available for Android, iOS, Windows Store & Windows Phone
I have a finished Airbus A380 Model finished for Flight Sim, my next focus will be to update Flight Sim with its 11th free airplane.
