Hilomi

Hilomi is a colorful game with an original gameplay premise: reshaping the environment to help Hilomi make her way through the levels. It challenges the player’s creativity in a unique way, asking him/her to plan ahead and think outside the box to successfully complete the levels, which makes it an interesting take on the puzzle game genre.

Made with Adobe AIR and Starling for iOS & Android.

Pierrick Lété:

We are pretty happy with the launch of our game Hilomi :)

The game is featured by Apple in the “Best New Games” section of the App Store in 123 countries (unfortunately not the US) including UK, Australia, France or Germany.

We have passed the 100K game downloads mark since yesterday.

Adobe AIR cross-platform apps: Guitar Focus

Guitar Focus is a beautiful app for tablets to visualize and practice scales on your guitar. Its unique minimalist look provide a distraction-free view of scales on the fretboard. Notes of the chosen scale and key may be seen either as chord/mode intervals (which helps improvise over chords), as the scale’s relative degrees or simply as the scale’s notes. When seen as chord/mode intervals, the notes are styled to show emphasis on the chord tones, so you can easily spot them as sure notes. You can customize which notes get high, medium or low emphasis style. There’s two fretboards so you can practice over chord or scale changes, and there’s a moving and resizable window that let you focus on a small region of the fretboard.
Features include:• 3 scales: Diatonic, Harmonic Minor and Melodic Minor;• Show chord/mode intervals, scale notes or scale degrees;• Hide the notes on a string and highlight the string (to practice with open strings);• Choose one of 12 colors as a fretboard’s color theme;• Normal or compound intervals in modes view (2,4,6 or 9,11,13);

Advanced Gyroscope, Local Notifications & More for iOS + Android

CoreMobile Native Extension for Adobe AIR:
Advanced Gyroscope. CoreMobile monitors the device’s built-in gyroscope, in combination with hints from its other available sensors, to compute accurate orientation readings. The API and results are exactly the same, whether your game is running on iOS or Android. Instead of burdening your CPU with additional expensive events, CoreMobile gives you synchronous access to the device’s current roll, pitch and yaw through a single function call you can integrate into your main render frame loop.
Local Notifications. While Push Notifications can be used for sending new information, sales, updates, messages, and multiplayer game events from a server to your users, Local Notifications are useful for sending a message to the current user only after a given delay.
For instance, a game in which the user’s energy slowly recharges after one hour, could use a local notification to remind the user when their energy is refilled; or if the user has not loaded your app in 3 days, a Local Notification could prompt them to come back and play some more.
Network Connection Monitoring. With CoreMobile, you can determine if the internet connection is available using a single function call- or if you need real time updates, listen for the connection being lost or gained with one simple event. Like all CoreMobile’s features, networking monitoring works seamlessly across iOS and Android.
Vibration. Add tactile feedback to games by triggering the vibration feature on your user’s mobile phone.
Native UI. It is often useful to use native modal dialogs to alert the user to an important event, ask a question, collect simple input, or get login information. CoreMobile allows you to implement such dialogs in a consistent, cross-platform way, without having to design and code the UI by hand in ActionScript.

AdobeAIR cross-platform apps: Nodality

Simon Gladman / FlexMonkey:

Here’s a quick introduction to my new app for iOS and Android tablets, Nodality.

In Nodality, everything is a node. Calculations can be built up from number nodes which feed into operator nodes. Complex networks can be created and the interface displays the value at every point in the network.

Info:

Nodality is a new type of calculator: numbers and operators appear as nodes in a network interface and the relationships between them define your calculations.

For example, to add five and six, create two number nodes, one for five and one for six, create an operator node for the multiply operator, and finally define the two numbers as inputs to the operator. Although this sounds a little complicated for such a simple piece of arithmetic, Nodality allows you to edit the numbers, change the operator and expand the network to create complicated systems.

Nodality also includes counter nodes that increment themselves over time and graph nodes that draw out your networks. It contains a handful of demonstration projects that show graphing being used for drawing circles and spirals.

It’s worth watching the introduction video to get the basics of how Nodality works, but in a nutshell:

  • Tap and hold on the background to create a new node
  • Define the type of node in the right hand panel 
  • Tap and hold a node to start creating relationships between nodes (suitable targets highlight in yellow)

This application is designed for tablets - it will run on a phone, but you’ll probably either need a stylus or very thin fingers. Complex networks can slow the application down a little and this application runs best under modern, powerful tablets.

I’m working on the full featured ‘pro version’ with a greater range of trigonometric functions, better graphing (this version has a locked graph range of -150 to 150) and the ability to save and share projects. If you have any features you want or need, please add them to a review and I’ll try my hardest to include them in future versions.
