I’ve just finished and uploaded a new level to BotSumo, which adds a bit more peril than ever before. Continue reading New BotSumo level: All falling apart…
Introducing new BotSumo: Battle Arena
I’ve released a new version of BotSumo, which is a paid version with no adverts, which means all bots are unlocked right from the start, like the CogBot – as seen below:
New BotSumo shield update, & new level
One of the problems I realised about adding the CogBots to BotSumo, was that they’re overpowered. The spinning cog around them pushes opponents back, meaning it can be difficult to defeat them if you’ve chosen one of the earlier bots. Continue reading New BotSumo shield update, & new level

Here’s a new bot that will soon join the dastardly ranks in BotSumo:
Here’s a video of these CogBots in action:

Forget Pokemon Go, we played the best augmented reality game in Italy
Everyone (including me) seemed to get hooked on Pokemon Go this year, when it first came out. Several of us at work would go for a walk, and collect Pokemon along the way, and it was amazing to see many others doing the same, young and old.
At the height of this fashion, we went for a holiday to Venice, and I swapped one augmented reality game for another, one which really made the trip. Continue reading Forget Pokemon Go, we played the best augmented reality game in Italy

I posted a while ago saying that new playable ships are coming, and I’ve finally got it finished! Also there’s a new level, new obstacles, and minor updates to the other levels. Get it on Android here, or in your browser here. Continue reading Escape the sector update – playable ships are here!
Is $1.50 for 1000 ad views worth it?
I saw recently that the indie developer of Victory lane racing posted the amount he’s getting on adverts for his app (see below), it’s about $1.50 for 1000x ad views.
This has got me thinking about the games that I make, and whether I should go down this path. Continue reading Is $1.50 for 1000 ad views worth it?
Different-sized colliders in Unity change the angular velocity
I’ve been working on adding different playable spaceships to Escape the Sector, but I’ve noticed this curious feature in Unity (I thought it was a bug at first!).
Watch this video:
Even though these 3 ships all have the same mass, angular velocity, drag and the same force is being applied, they turn at different rates because they have different sized colliders.
I assume this is normal, but it’s going to make it quite difficult to get the turning speed the same on them all without a lot of tweaking!
Some new spaceships
Even thought I’m actually quite enthusiastic about working on BotSumo after finding many videos of people playing it, I’ve still got to finish a feature on Escape the sector that allows you to choose the player ship. Continue reading Some new spaceships
