New game: Marbles Squared

Postby remysharp » Sat Jul 10, 2021 9:34 am

A new puzzle game for the Spectrum Next: Marbles Squared

The aim: clear the board, get the world leaderboard high score, bask in the glory of knowing you're the best.

Highlights:

- Nearly 40,000 unique starting boards
- Joystick, keyboard or mouse input
- Online shared leaderboard updated in real time
- Custom game theme or design your own tiles
- Unlimited undo

Available as digital download donation ware at 👉 https://remysharp.itch.io/marbles2 👈

If you do choose to donate, the download also includes all the fully documented source code (both NextBASIC and assembly files), assets and an eight page PDF explaining the tools and methods used to create the software.

Want to see who's already got their teeth into a high score? 👉 https://marbles2.com

The "world leaderboard" (see in screenshots) is hosted online and is updated exclusively on the Next machine using the onboard wifi (if installed). Any high score you achieve is also automatically sent online and if qualifying, is published for the world to see.

If anyone does design their own tiles, please share your .spr file in a comment below - we'd love to see how you play.

Published an update to this yesterday that supports better undo logic, better error handling if you get a highscore but there's no internet and some fixes around the use of custom tiles - free to update from https://remysharp.itch.io/marbles2
