So my daughter has been wanting me to make a matching game for her and finally got around to do it so thought I would share.

 

This is just goofing around and is just for her devices, I doubt I will upload it to Google/iTunes etc. although I was just thinking about open sourcing it to the Corona users but won't really decide on that until I add some more stuff in it or if it turns out that this is something that everyone would want as open source lol

 

Any hoot, only about 12 hrs into it so it is a little rough.

Here is a video of the game play I just took real quick.

Looks good though, nice idea to use smilies. Might be worth uploading to the stores for the hell of it? Market it as a kids match game or something.

Thanks, I use to be that way to then one day I ended up having to do all the front end, back end etc. and then had no choice but to learn Photoshop and 3d Modelling programs and for the first year or so of doing every aspect of a app/game I was cussing under my breath (well sometimes out loud) screaming BS every now and then :)

 

In the end it worked out well because now when I am making a UI or something I know exactly how it is going to work on the programming side so makes the graphics a lot easier to pull off and the entire time I am doing the art I am programming it in my head.

How much support would it need?

 

It doesn't seem like it would be that much.

I'd almost consider it a fire and forget app.  Get some income from it early, perhaps some residual down the road.

I have had the engine built for awhile now, just getting around to giving the UI some love :)

 

Use to look like this.

Why not out of curiosity? A lot of people do! In case you're planning on app storing this :]

That is a good question and while I can do iMap let me explain why I don't :)

 

iMap stores all your email on the server and while its true you can use something like SSL to encrypt your communication it does not stop your email provider or server from being hacked.

 

So the only reason I use pop/smtp is just to fetch mail from my encrypted server, the actual client connects to the encrypted server for its information which is done using a rotating encryption.

 

This isn't your basic email client it is a project/document base secure messaging client so imagine you have a project lets say one of your plugins that you are collaborating with. All files, email, communications etc. are all linked to that project/plugin and encrypted and secure. Later when you need to look something up you just goto the project and you can see all email, files, events so on and so forth.

 

Not sure if I am explaining that clearly though lol

 

Makes a lot more sense when you use it :)
