OrsCoL WP7 Reviews

Here are my reviews so far : I’ve got a bad review cause my Arcade mode in the Lite version is too short (4 levels). Well, I’ll probably upgrade it to 6… Note that the average for the US for the Lite version is still 2.0 but should be 3.0 soon (Microsoft takes time to…

WP7 OrsCoL LITE certified

I submitted it last week ! Since my app isĀ already going to disappear from the first pages (still selling 1-2 each day though), I did a LITE version. I removed some sounds, levels and puzzles to make it lighter and it’s free. I hope it’ll make more people buy discover the game. šŸ™‚ The app…

Published !!

OrsCoL is now available on the marketplace :Ā OrsCoL Thanks again to people who helped me, tried it, and enjoyed it ! I’m glad I made it this far. Well now, if I sells bad, it’s not a problem. I had fun working on it and I’ll do some updates soon ! But right now I’m…

Now working on a MacBook

“You Are Now Registered as an Apple Developer” I just got my Apple license. Cool !! It’s all thanks to my friend’s MacBook. Thanks Ben !! I’m now a MacBookĀ user for few months. It’s weird since I’m the first to say I hate most of Apple stuff and policy… Maybe I’ll change my mind ??…

Ready to publish !!!!!!

“Congratulations! OrsCoL has successfully passed certification for Windows Phone Marketplace.” Youhou ! It’s probably not such a big deal but I’m proud somehow šŸ™‚ I could just press the “Publish” button right away… But.. BUT… I noticed a sound bug and fixed it after the last submission !!! So I’m just uploading a new version…

Submission failed :D

Actually, I knew it… I read something about the requirements just after I submitted the app ! Ok, I’ll read this kind of things before, next time for sure ! In WP7 app, if the user is on the main screen, pressing “back” button of the phone should exit the app. So the developper has…

Submitted !

“OrsCoL” is now submitted !! I’m waiting for the certification results. I hope I won’t have to do fix… I read lots of posts about certification requirements and looks like it’s easy to fail. Let’s wait and see. By the way, thanks to Jux for his test on Windows Phone and hisĀ feedbackĀ ! Meanwhile, I’m working…

I got the license !

Yeah ! It took time but I got it ! Since I don’t have a WP7 yet I sent the app to friends of mine (Seb S. and Jux). Seb already managed to test it on his phone ! Thanks !! So far so good then ! Once I submit the game, I’ll probably do…

MediaPlayer class

I checked some things about the submission process lately, and I discovered the way I played musics would just help me to fail the certification… I used to play music that way (not my actual code, it’s just an example) : SoundEffect soundEffect = content.Load<SoundEffect>(“Sounds/mySong”); SoundEffectInstance songInstance = soundEffect.CreateInstance(); songInstance.IsLooped = true; songInstance.Play(); Well, it…

First Mode done !

Yeeaah ! It’s done ! Took me 2 weeks to start and complete this mode ! Maybe I’ll do some tweak later to change the score calculation or some polish, but it’s playable (and quite hard..). Tomorrow I’ll start my last mode. It should take 2-3 days + 2 if I decide to make an…

Bonuses

I’m working on some simple animations for the special bonuses (just like in the DS version actually). Like this one to turn every tiles in blackĀ and white : The pandas are the same as in the DS version. I’m not sure I’ll draw it once more… But they look weird, huh ? You get this…

First Mode almost done

There’ll be 2 modes… One to make some scoring (the one I’m working on) and another with puzzles to solve (it should be really easy to code since the mechanics will be the same as the first mode). Right now I’m working on the bonuses (right side of the screen). I still need to do…
