So I’ve been neglecting this site for awhile now. For those of you who read this blog, I apologize for being so quiet. I ended up taking up 2 jobs which took up a lot more of my time than I had realized and I didn’t have much time to work on my game much less make any new posts here.
So what have I been up to? Well, since my last post I’ve broken down and bought a MacBook. For various reasons but most importantly to finally dive in the iPhone SDK. A lot of my attention has been spent playing with Objective-C, XCode, and the iPhone SDK and I have to admit that it is quite enjoyable to mess with. It is taking me some time to get used to as Objective-C is just so strange to me but nothing I can’t handle.
I do hope that if I become familiar with the language and API that I may have something up on Apple’s AppStore but we all know how my home projects have been. I do hope this can finally keep my interest. Here are a few screenshots of what I’ve been doing.
They are not much but the first shows a simple menu screen which goes into the game screen shown by the other 2 images. The last image shows that the squares are clickable. I really don’t know where I’ll be going with this but we’ll see what comes up as I continue learn the environment.
On a side note, I am loving my new MacBook and the Mac OS X. This is my first time since having an Apple II in my middle school where I’ve touched a mac. I had no idea just how easy it is to use, everything just works and works really well.
