My name is Stephen and currently an IT Professional doing administration and support, however I've always had a deep passion for software development. I've started mobile application development when I got my first Android phone in October 09. This blog catalogues all my progress with creating mobile apps for not only Android, but eventually iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy.


New Android game coming soon, High Low Red Black

Tagged: ,

First I want to thank everyone for enjoying Acey Deucey, over 750 downloads. Not bad for a card game that's sorta obscure. Well this one, even though it's still a card game, is a lot more fun to play! It's normally played as a drinking game, but I decided to port it over to Android.

Actually in researching about it, I found that there's 2 iPhone versions in their AppStore, but none on Android, so I may have a genuine winner here if this exact game can be successful while selling for a $1 on iPhone vs my Free version on Android...and this maybe the game I spend my time porting to the others, iPhone, BB and WindowsPhone7.

Back to the gameplay, the game is real simple. A card is dealt face up, the player must guess if the next card will be Higher or Lower in value [Aces high] OR if it'll be Red [Diamonds,Hearts] or Black [Spades,Clubs] suited. Once the player decides one of those four options, a card is dealt.

If the player choose correctly, they are granted a point, if not they lose all points. The process is repeated for the last dealt card until the player calls it quits.

The high score will be submitted based on the longest correct streak the player earned during the time played.

I actually really enjoyed programming this game, it didn't seem like a chore Acey Deucey was at some points. I enjoyed it so much that I honestly think I'll have it Market ready by the end of this weekend, then a few days of beta testing w/ my friend's devices, It'll be available for all within 7 days.
