First things first. You like my program? Good. It likes you too. That'll be $5, please. C'mon, it's a fun little program and it is only five dollars(!). Help an independent OS X developer out.
Amazeing X requires any Macintosh running OS X 10.3.x or higher.
One of the little games I wrote used code out of my RPG project. The thing in that game that was rather acceptable and robust was the movement code to zip your guy around the map. So I swiped it and tucked it into the original Amazeing and made up the story about Robby the Robot trying to find his battery. That original maze is still available, it's now "Original 3" in the widget download.
So I played Amazeing for a while, showed it off to people, and so on. And as Netscape 4 faded away, I archived it on CD and left it alone. BONUS - I just dusted off the code and seem to have it up and running under IE or Safari on OS X (couldn't get it working on Mozilla, oddly enough). Check it out here
Still. There had to be better ways to do it....
So, with some spare time and a desire to learn how to program for the Macintosh a bit more, I started learning Objective-C. The argument can be made that this is when I really should've gone all out and learned Java, but that's not where I felt like going at the moment. Getting up to speed in the language and development environment were easy (Thanks Apple! (well, Thanks NeXT!)), so I was writing stuff in no time. But a functional game? That was a taller order. A functional construction kit to go with it? Another tall order. Hence, it took me a few months longer than I would've liked. But that's because I'm a perfectionist. Technically, I could have released the game and the construction kit last August. They just would've sucked. So there's 5 months of refinement bundled into this thing here before it ever even got out the door. Hopefully this has resulted in a more enjoyable game.
You have a maze you'd like to distribute? Tell me about it and I'll put a link to it here.
