Japanese Puzzle Game Progress

I've been getting a lot of progress done on the Japanese Puzzle Game.  I'm just going to list out everything that I've done since the last post.

  • Redid the tile art to make it easier to read.
  • Enlarged the timer/background art so it was easier to see how much time was left
  • Changed the score to be larger, show the numbers increasing instead of jumping, and got it out of that little box.
  • Every time you get points it now shows the amount of points you earned.
  • Fixed a bug that would count matches multiple times (matching five in a row also gave you points for four in a row and three in a row!)
  • More than doubled the vocab list, with a lot more to come!
  • Matching four-in-a-row makes a new tile of the type you need to make a word.
  • Matching five-in-a-row makes two new tiles of the type you need to make a word.
  • The four-in-a-row tile will give you double points when you match it.
  • The five-in-a-row tiles will give you triple points when you match them.
  • Fixed a bug related to clicking, releasing, then clicking and dragging somewhere else.
  • Completely redid the exporting of the word data and loading it in so I could make a web version.
  • Added a score multiplier.  The longer you keep the puzzle going the higher the multiplier goes!

So yeah, I've been a little busy.  Here's what it looks like now!

Obviously, still pre-alpha.

Though with all of that said, I'm still trying to come up with a name!  Japanese Puzzle Game doesn't really roll off the tongue...
