Two new games were published in a Facebook group some days ago, a clone of Tetris and Pac-man, but both quite well done:

Actually thankyou: for some reason, I used to think that as long as you went first, you could not lose, provided you had the correct strategy (grab the centre, then corners). However, I realised after looking at your game, that two perfect players will always draw (that's correct innit?).
You're right! In fact my game plays with different strategies that allows it to always draw in the worst case.. Cheers!

Cheers Ivan. BWT when you post a game, it'd be a great help if you could include a bit of info with it. If you know them, things like author, publisher, release date. Sometimes it can take a while for me to bring it all together, and there are cases, like this one, that are on FB so a closed shop to me entirely.

You mention two games: Pacman and Tetris?
but both quite well done:
Are you kidding?! That's possibly the best version of Pac-man I've seen on the speccy; I'll make a new thread for it.

Hi Dave! :)

In this case there was actually almost no info at all! The guy just did a super short post saying, here are 2 games I have done, and that was :D

I will try to see if I can get his name, that was the only info left ;)

Both of them moved surprisingly good for an author we have never heard about before, indeed!


Edit: The name of the author, I found him, is Stephen Coppack !
