Sound Added to "Simple Dice"!

Sound Added to “Simple Dice”!

I added sound to “Simple Dice” when you roll the dice. The sound played is a modified, low quality version of Mike Koenig’s “Shake and Roll Dice Sound”. The file takes up less than 10 additional kilobytes, and the sound is only played if the “Media volume” is not muted, to avoid disturbing others.  I also plan on adding the sound to “Dice Betting” when it is released. The sound truly makes the application more realistic feeling and more interesting. Expect to see the changes on GitHub and the Android market shortly!

UPDATE: The sounds are now in the git repository, and the new version is up on the market!


Introducing “Simple Dice”

Introducing “Simple Dice”

This isn’t quite the dice game that I’m currently working on, but I liked the animation I made so much in the other game (“Dice Betting”) that I just had to release an Android application with just the dice images and the animation. Simply tap anywhere on the screen in order to roll the dice. Dice rolls are random. Simple Dice will definitely be released under version 3 of the GNU General Public license, and the source will be available online as soon as I get a chance to upload it. I will update this post with the link to the source code once it’s online. Until then, check it out in the Android market! It’s 100% free! Also, the entire application takes up only a measly 24KB! 😉

UPDATE: The source code is now available on GitHub! Check it out! 🙂

Working on a New Simple Dice Game

Working on a New Simple Dice Game

I’ve been working on creating a basic dice game for Android with animation, rules, betting, and more! The game is currently a work in progress, but I’m really excited to release it! The animation works wonderfully, and the interface, although very unfinished is already starting to look polished, especially in the game’s menus. For now, the game is simply called “Dice Betting”, and yes, I realize how lame and generic that sounds, but I might end up changing the name of the game before it is released. Similar to “Find the Mouse”, I’ll probably end up open sourcing this game (under the GNU General Public License, of course), although it isn’t even remotely close to being released yet. The game will have a built-in statistics tracking system, and the rolling of the dice will be completely animated. Right now, the animation I have done looks really cool, and I’m incredibly anxious to publicly release this. Check back soon! 🙂
