v2.0: All new strategy game! Match the gold tiles for big points but beware the blanks!

You have 40 turns to get the best score possible! Each regular match will generate Gold tiles and a 9% chance of a blank:(

Match 3 tiles=3 points, create 1 Gold tile
Match 4 tiles=10 points, create 2 Gold tiles
Match 5 tiles=25 points, create 3 Gold tiles
Match 3 Gold=9 points, create 1 Blank tile
Match 4 Gold=30 points, create 2 Blank tiles
Match 5 Gold=75 points, create 3 Blank tiles

Pending for vol 1: Change grid size at start up and combo scoring(for now the left/right scores before the up/down but the longer will always score first)

  • JOELwindows7: It's been long time man! Duper Awesome still. Allow Derivatives
  • JOELwindows7: 119
  • ExplodingAnger: Thank you I'll for sure check out your guide.
  • zardOz2: @ExplodingAnger: learning how the electronic work will help learning coding a lot... many code lines will function the same way as the electronic do, I have a beginners guide to lua on the wiki
  • ExplodingAnger: Didn't play it long enough to discover any myself. I one day hope to make games like this. Until then imma stick to my vehicles.
  • zardOz2: @ExplodingAnger: this one I made when I knew a lot less, it has some errors when matching two sections on a cross or T
  • ExplodingAnger: Nice game that I could sit down and play when I'm bored. Keep up the good work

  • zardOz2: @Alejandro: good score... apologies if you find any errors, theres one if you make a T the score wont trigger correctly
  • Alejandro: 243!!!
  • jetd0ughnut: 208
  • zardOz2: @technorat: this sstill has a few errors I need to sort out, thx tho! Good score!
  • technorat: It is best to match 5 gold

  • zardOz2: @isaacho: sorry, I have a tiny phone, I dont make games I cant playtest properly.
  • isaacho: Can you make touch controls if possible?
  • that guy2: @zardOz: greedy, lazy, and probably overpaid.
  • zardOz2: @that guy: the "saga" is simply for brand recogonition, So they know it's by the same greedy developers.
  • that guy2: @zardOz: and after making candy crush, I'm guessing they copied the code and changes some images to make pet rescue saga, followed by farm heroes saga. And what's with the whole "saga" thing, anyway?
  • that guy2: 144, I suck at this lol

  • keeghan: @zardOz: thanks, going to YouTube.
  • zardOz2: @keeghan: candy crush probably took several people many months to make, actual programmers who get paid to code.
  • keeghan: @yo man: can you make candy crush saga using luas if you know lua.
  • zardOz2: @keeghan: there are also many, many youtube videos you can watch. As Ive explained several times, there is no easy way to learn it without taking classes... You will have to learn one command at a time, play test over and over. If you don't know any algebra or triginometry is much harder to do anything that moves around.
  • yo man: @keeghan: If you really want to learn that website has links to resources such as the books. Or just google how to learn lua. If ya cant do that im going to assume learning lua isnt worth your time.
  • keeghan: @yo man: that website is not helping me.
  • yo man: @keeghan: .. that looks like a good place to start.
  • yo man: 270 after the update.
  • keeghan: @zardOz: how do I learn lua?
  • zardOz2: @keeghan: I had to make 75 levels or so before I was able to make this game, you'll need to start with simple stuff to learn how to make the conplex stuff, sorry there is no easy way to do it.
  • keeghan: @zardOz: the code is too hard to understand.
  • keeghan: @zardOz: I'll try to make it.

  • zardOz2: @keeghan: I need 6 months and a classroom to teach you, It is waaay too complex for that. You can use the " tile swappiing game base code" once you get the skills you need.
  • keeghan: @zardOz: can you teach me how to make it?
  • zardOz2: @keeghan: im gonna make a different game useing the same type of system where the tiles fall into place, eventually.
  • keeghan: @zardOz: can you make levels and target score for each level. And, you can make bring down object level and amount of different colors level like get 10 red, 15 blue, or 30
  • TechZ2124: @zardOz: Wow awesome ! I would suggest to add more turns in the next update, this way we could elaborate more "strategy" lol
  • zardOz2: @TechZ: thanks TZ, its a much better game now. Im gonna add a wild card for matching 5 gold and if I can shink the code for the combo scoring hopefully that will fit too lol
  • TechZ2124: Got 308 after a few tries. Great updates !
  • Golden: @zardOz: oh yeah, 539 is my best
  • zardOz2: @golden: either form is acceptable:) 437 is my best now
  • Golden: Zarcade*
  • Golden: Zardocade? LOL
  • zardOz2: 317 is my best so far(2.0) with 3 5x Gold and 2 5xNormal
  • The_Blacksmith_: 234!
  • zardOz2: @The_Blacksmith_: oops fixed the vertical 4 matches, thanks for playing!
  • The_Blacksmith_: @zardOz: very good! Interesting strategy. Go for the gold (tiles) and waste moves or get more regular tiles matched. Decisions decisions.
  • zardOz2: @The_Blacksmith_: Got a new version for ya, should increase the replayability a lot. More skill, less relying on the start random.
  • The_Blacksmith_: 166!
  • The_Blacksmith_: New score! 150!
  • The_Blacksmith_: @zardOz: the game gave me a 46 point chain to start out with! Lol
  • The_Blacksmith_: @zardOz: oh, sorry to hear that. Awesome hobby you have there! Lol. If you have a good game you should try to publish it on Google play!
  • zardOz2: @The_Blacksmith_: nono, nobodys paying me:( never the less I have many creations that ive never even played lol
  • The_Blacksmith_: @zardOz: I didn't know you were a game designer! Awesome job you got there! That explains why you're so good at programming. Anyway, I think flappy bird was just a fad anyway, and as all fads, has passed.
  • zardOz2: @The_Blacksmith_: As a game designer I find the success of flappy birds to be disgusting, I dont hate the designer though I doubt he expected it to do anything financially.
  • The_Blacksmith_: @zardOz: the first one maybe, but Nintendo sues everybody ;) lol
  • zardOz2: @The_Blacksmith_: hopefully the next flappy bird means "50k daily revenue" and not "sued by nintendo" ;)
  • The_Blacksmith_: 128! This, my friend, is the next flappy bird. LIKE
  • zardOz2: @yo man: well just when you get the hang of it, Ill switch it all around;)
  • yo man: @zardOz: I know.. sometimes the random order just doesnt allow for better scores. But 158 aint terrible for my 3rd try.
  • zardOz2: @yo man: best strategy is to look for clumps of 5 of the same color and work from the outside in. Try to switch with tiles that will make cluumps of other colors if you have a choice...
  • yo man: 158!
  • yo man: 104.
  • Alfajim: @woodnut: yeah I agree I got a five and a three in a T shape. @zardOz: sorry lol. :)
  • zardOz2: @woodnut: yeah its gonna be tricky at best, the up/down and left right are completely independant and it took me forever to get it right.
  • woodnut2: @Alfajim: Well done :) @zardOz: I think a 3 both ways should score close to a 5 in a row. When you get the combos implemented :)
  • Alfajim: @woodnut: 294!!!!!! Beat that! ;D
  • shantanuaryan67: 102
  • yo man: 1st try 72
  • Ronan: 82
  • Ronan: Love it!
  • woodnut2: Nice tile game, got 5 X 5 plus a free triple a the start for, (drum roll) 256 :)
  • Manny: @zardOz: I know but I thought that was part of the game to plan your moves and try to be careful of what you cut.
  • zardOz2: @Manny: Thanks, if you cut the board in half you wont be able to get to the other side;) @jasnsathome: @Alfajim: @TechZ: @Cheddah: thanks all, my new best is 224.
  • Manny: 62
  • Manny: @zardOz: Awesome! All I would suggest is that you make it so your cursor can't go in black spaces.
  • jasnsathome: Great game! I suck at it but really nice design.
  • Alfajim: Great game well done. I got 226. :)
  • TechZ2124: 176 !
  • TechZ2124: Great mini-game !
  • Cheddah: Good work again dude.
  • jetboy007: 66
  • zardOz2: @JOELwindows7: thanks joel, just dont ask for A.I.;)
  • JOELwindows7: Awesome! Game made!
  • zardOz2: 182 was my best on 3 trys(1.0)
