1up #11 Apeirogon

It's been a hectic time with "real life", Took Dad to hospital, Mum broke her leg, plus a bunch of other stuff. Which meant the two weeks I had off work, to try and catch up and get ahead with 1UP, just didn't really happen.Well here's game number 11 and hopefully number 12 isn't too far behind.

Shoot the incoming baddies, while avoiding them. Blue ones don't die.
Collect green powerups for better fire power and bonus points.

1up #10 Blackbelt T.D.

This one almost didn't happen, half way through I began to hate the game and wanted to scrap it completely. But with a bit of perseverance, I manage to pull it together and get it finished, albeit 8 days late. I've managed to fix the bug in the hiscore code, so hopefully no more crashes when it can't detect the server. I'm gonna spend  my day off tomorrow writing a game in one day to catchup to schedule. Please enjoy and share 1up #10 Blackbelt T.D. 

Character based on Tom Dawkins aka Blackbelt T.D.

Punch and kick the incoming objects. Watch out as they get faster and faster.
Use the double split kick and double crouching punch when surrounded.

Webhost woes. Game crashes.

Many apologies as you may have noticed games 7 and below, now crash when they try to talk to the hiscore server. Since I've changed webhosts, the code for the global hiscores no longer works. I'll be releasing updates to all the games real soon.
Hang in there people.
While you're waiting, feel free to play Lightrider and Penguins Are Mean.

Run around the maze collecting all the bones. But watch out for the mean penguins who want to throw you into the air. Use fish to distract them.

with a little help.

Hopefully you've downloaded a few of the Asobitech 1up games, played them, maybe made it on to the global hiscore tables. Most of all I hope you have enjoyed playing them, which the main reason I am doing this.
As a videogames coder, there's nothing more satisfying than knowing people are enjoying the games that you create. Making the games is half the fun, watching people play and their reactions is the other. This is why all your comments and feedback mean a lot to me.
Unfortunately for me, this currently isn't my full time job. I code in what spare time I can find, much to the dismay of my girlfriend. But one day, I would love this to become what I do for a living.
I have big plans for Asobitech.
For example in the summer, I want to have a one day live event, Asobifest, where the games will be setup on arcade style cabinets, competitions will be run with prizes to be had. The bands of the people who have created music for the games will play, the graphic artist will be able to display their work. Altogether a day of fun.
But this is all, for now, in the future, until then I'll carry on releasing one game a week, one bite size morsel of joy for you all to play. I just ask, if you like what I'm doing, please donate what you can to help me along with my project. Thank you.
