Bubblision – Sprint 8 complete & SunUp #14-04

After a slow start I managed to get a few things done during this sprint. I’ve still been unable to fix the duplicate player bubble issue and this will have to roll over to the next sprint. I’ve a few things left to try, including a rewrite of the code, as a lot of the other things I’ve tried haven’t worked. To date I’ve tried making the player bubble a singleton, trying to detect and... Read on

SunUp #14-03

Bubblision – Sprint 7 complete & SunUp #14-02

As a result I probably had only half the time I usually have during a sprint and so I finished fewer tasks. Tasks completed this sprint: Fixed a bug which led to the score increasing if the player bubble burst... Read on

SunUp #14-01

Welcome to the first SunUp of 2014. As you  might expect, it’s been a busy few weeks as we’ve been visiting relatives over the festive season and so I’ve not got as much done as I’d hoped. It was fun though. I’ve decided to change the numbering of the SunUp. As this is an ongoing thing I thought it would be useful to be able to look at the SunUp number and work out what... Read on
