B is for Breakout Games... plus JJ's Ubermon Journey & competition news
News posted 25th September, 2022 by Joshtek 1 Comment

My A-Z of Click series started with 'A' is for Active Object and now I've got my second article up: 'B' is for Breakout-style games'. Read about bat-and-ball games, 'B'-games' like Bananarama, BI-NARY and Bernard & Hank, and 'B'-devs like Blackeye Software, Bernie, and Brian Su.

The latest game to be added to The Daily Click is  JJ's Ubermon Journey (pictured below) made by none other but the on-theme  BigAl0104.

In other news, in response to the poll responses we will be running a weekend Click game-making competition focused on the 22nd-23rd of October. We also have plans for a longer form contest later in the year with a winter theme.

New Poll: Interested in a TDC competition / game jam?
News posted 4th September, 2022 by Joshtek 4 Comments

NEW POLL TIME! I want your views on your participation in a TDC game jam. In addition to knowing whether you want to take part in one, I want to know whether or not you have a strong preference for it to be focussed on taking place over a pre-announced weekend (e.g. midday Thursday to midday Monday UK time so people can work Fri-Sun) or a competition where people had several weeks to make their entry. Vote now and put any other thoughts in the comments section.

In other news, two new games have been added to The Daily Click:

Ten Stupid Apps
Fallumns

Ten Stupid Apps by MinkoedZamorVedro: "Play 10 of the most stupid and useless apps of all time. They all combined in my new game, Ten Stupid Apps. Some of this apps may be the beginning for me to create other games."

Fallumns by Fifth: "Fallumns was my entry for the Ludum Dare jam #48 from about a year ago. It's just an ordinary Match-3 game, with absolutely no hidden secrets! (there might be secrets)"

  • Some of the Maxis K&P example demos (Chip Chewer, Molecule Ball, Planet Duel! and Rescue on Mars!).

You can read more about the creation of this collection on my TDC Project Page for the K&P/TGF/C&C/MMF bundled game revival.

News posted 17th July, 2022 by Joshtek Post A Comment

Hello fellow Clickers. I've been working my computer hard in the hot UK weather to render for you an interview with Lukas about his upcoming video game Zorpon that I recorded yesterday.

Truly understanding Zorpon shall surely put you on the road of enlightenment. To keep an eye on the game check out https://lordl75.itch.io/zorpon. You can also check out the trailer:

We've had a few new games added to The Daily Click recently and the most recent is DESERTFETCHER, an arcade-style game by Peeblo where you play as a little creature walking left and right.

And last, but not least, Clickteam have released Build 294.1 beta which users of the non-Steam version of CF2.5 can get from the Product Owner's Lounge forum. The Steam version of the beta should come in about a week. As you might have guessed from watching the trailer I posted in April, the changelog is quite long indeed.

A-Z of Click #1: A is for Active Object
News posted 14th May, 2022 by Joshtek 2 Comments

My A-Z of Click series has begun with its inaugural article: A is for Active Object. Check it out for a celebration of Click games, developers and trivia that start with the letter 'a'. If it is your cup of tea then let me know and I might make an entry for 'B' some day. The main focus of this article is charting the history of the Active Object from its early days of Klik & Play all the way through to the modern day.

In other news, PolyGonGames has released a The Shooter DEMO, a top down game where you kill the bad guys (presumably by shooting them).



Want to be interviewed? Get in touch!
News posted 2nd May, 2022 by Joshtek Post A Comment

The 'What would you like to see next?' poll had 40 responses. The most popular choice was 'interviews with TDC game creators' with 16 votes (40%). After the interview I did with Ishmaru people have asked for more, but it takes two to tango.

If you are someone who is actively making Click games and posting them to The Daily Click then I want to talk with you. If you're interested in being interviewed then send me a DC mail.

The second most popular poll option was 'Articles discussing old Klik games' (38%), followed by an almost even number of votes for 'Random Click trivia' (13%), and 'Guess game from scrambled screenshot competitions' (10%).

My plan is to mix all of these elements together with a series of article themed around 'the A-Z of Click'. Statting with 'A', each article will focus on games, developers, random trivia and maybe a scrambled screenshot starting with the letter. If you have any 'A's you'd like me to consider covering in my first article then let me know via the comments.

Happy Easter from TDC

Want to play some Easter-themed Click games? Check out:

Speaking of Easter, are there any 'easter eggs' in Click games that you remember fondly (hidden zones, features, cheat codes, references, etc.)? Have you put any easter eggs in your own games? If you check out Andi's 2002 interview with Charles Tumino about the click classic Destruction Carnival for Planet Klik you'll find out how to access the secret easter egg of... a pong clone called Vector Ball. That's right, it's been hiding there this whole time!
