Dev Diary

Just updated the Tappy Lander Dev Diary with entry #6 on Scoring and Risk/Reward. I'd love to know what you think!

It read like an extended description if the game play. Since you posted in the dev forum I thought there was going to be a bit more details on how you balanced the game with some juicy code snippets.

I did enjoy your brief history of video games. I remember getting up to 99 on "Target Fun" on the old Atari 2600.

I peeked at the link for #5 as well, again it would have been cool to provide some details on how you detect a bounce/slide based on the box2d code.

Anyway, all in all a fun read.

Thanks for the feedback. I didn't think to go into so much detail. I will consider that in future posts.
