    It’s finally done, after a lot of work and also a lot of support from the V-Play team, we can finally announce our very first V-Play game: Blockoban

    It is already available in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=at.impossibru.blockoban

    “A new innovative and mind-boggling puzzle game which is also a revolution of the puzzle genre!

    The goal of the game is easy. You have to build ways for your nameless hero by moving blocks to collect all the gems on the playfield.”

    Blockoban already features 50 levels, divided into two worlds of different difficulty, made by us, plus you can also create your own with our self-made level editor.
    It also includes a score system, where you only receive the best score, when you reach or beat or own high score.

    The game was developed by me (Christian Bartsch) and Andreas Guetz (V-Play user porcupine).

    We hope we can get some feedback from other V-Play users and maybe also the team of V-Play :)

    PS: I don’t know if I’m supposed to post under announcements, maybe you could create a custom games forum or something 😉

    Looking really great, congratulations, we’ve already installed it on all of our Android devices! 😉

    And thanks for your suggestion for a dedicated game sub forum, we’ll definitely add one in the future, for now you’re absolutely welcome to post in the announcements. We would also like to add your game to our upcoming showcase games section if you don’t mind…

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Wooah, really a big thank you.
    It woud be great to be in the showcase games section :)
    We think the v-play engine is really a great engine to create cross-plattform games.

    Cheers,

    Congrats for your very nice game!

    This is rather a question for the other forum but may I ask why you had to include “loading” screens in the menu (I tested on android)? This seems quite peculiar. Usually one wants to quickly navigate in the game’s menu and I am just wondering if you tried to optimise and didn’t manage or if you were ok with the way it is. I am also asking because I just started to implement the menu for our game and I am somewhat concerned about the suggested structure with different scenes as in squabby. This does not seem very efficient to me (memory wise).

    Anyway, enjoyed playing your game!

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Hi, thanks for your post!

     

    When a different menu screen is to be shown, it is either loaded from a QML file (like the about screen) or a QML string is built dynamically (for the level selection screens which can include a dynamic number of levels) and then an object is built from this, and displayed.

    Apparently this takes some time (especially on older devices).

    But you raise a good point, it would probably possible to implement this another way.

    Cheers, Chrisu

    Hi Chrisu,

    congratulations for Blockoban!

    Chris told me, that you are using localisation in Blockoban. I wonder how to implement it without access to c++ and QTranslator. In my game i have a lot of strings that i should translate to different languages. It would be very kind if you could share, how you did it. Thank you in advance!

     

    Cheers

    We just updated to V-Play 1.4 and released the Update in the Google Play Store, so now the loading times are improved quite a lot.
    The update for iOS will be available soon, and we have also planned a release in the BlackBerry market :)

    Congrats! Just out of curiosity: why don’t you also release for symbian, just for the fun of it?

    Good idea, I somehow completely forgot about Symbian 😀 We will definitely look into that 😉

    Good, would be great if you could report in case you try to submit to the market.
