We apologise for the delay...

Thanks to a change I made right before submitting the Apple Jack 2, a bug was found in the game and I had to pull it from peer review early. Since the rules state that you have to wait a week before resubmitting a game, it'll be saturday before I can put it back up. It'll then take several days or longer to (hopefully) pass.

Sigh.

Oh well, at least I've used this extra time to make a few improvements to the game, namely:

-The daytime sky is now a slightly nicer blue.
-The shadow on Jack's head moves a bit when he runs.
-Songs 2 and 3 are swapped around.
-A barely noticable graphical glitch when Jack runs off of a moving block has been fixed.

Exciting stuff, I'm sure you'll agree.


In other news, the Dream Build Play contest will soon be ready for entrants to upload their games. This is the first one that's come around at the right time for me to take part, and I'm looking forward to seeing how well AJ2 does. Hopefully the time I've spent polishing it will count in its favour.

  3. Supplemental,

    I've made changes to Jack's run animation to make it less robotic, and it'll be a photofinish as to whether an updated version of the soundtrack is delivered is in time for submission. Ooh! Exciting!
