egging – fixing crash or malfunctioning “again-button”

December 1, 2011 in Apples, egging by synapsemassage

I’ve seen this behaviour too after updating to iOS 5 and newer. I’ve also seen similar malfunctions on many other apps after updating iOS. Seems the apples;-) messed around with something in the iOS. To fix it you can try 2 approaches. Method 1: Switch off your iOS device by holding lock-screen button for some seconds (a switch-off slider will be displayed). Then restart your device. If this doesn’t help. Use method 2: Delete the app, then re-download/re-install the app. It might be necessary to apply “method 1″ once more.

Sorry for this inconvenience.

Just realized that scores surpassing 1000 might not get reported due to some parsing problem with Javascript. But the fix is coming soon!Might display not correctly, but will report ok. Fix will be in 2.1.

Almost 400 000 500 000 Downloads! To celebrate this I did a major polishing. Actually the polishing was more of a ‘development from scratch’ ;-) . The game is free for quite a while. As an indy developer I hope it will pay off now by adding iAds. Thanks and enjoy egging 2.0!

egging V1.0: enter score bug

I could recreate this bug, but cannot explain why this exactly happens. This bug seems to be related to higher scores with at least 5 digits. Someone suspected this to be intended, but it’s not! I’m eager to give you pleasure and a nice user experience, unhappy bothered customers would simply stop playing, this is pretty sure not my intension. You love playing games, I love making games.

I also use third party software for the leaderboards and I decided to update this. Maybe an update will already fix it. But I have to approach this carefully, as I don’t want to corrupt the leaderboards. Please don’t forget, egging usually costs less than a cup of coffee and even is free for now, no ads inside! So please be fair!

egging – don’t drop the egg

egging – iPhone Game
The game is available at:
http://itunes.com/apps/egging

Although the gameplay is super simple egging is still really challenging. You won’t survive for very long. That’s why time is measured in milliseconds. egging is for these moments much too short to start any other activity and fits well into these little breaks you definitely need before getting back to work. Yet addictive it takes just a little bit of your time. It’s perfect when waiting and I realized that it can give you kind of a Zen mood due to it’s need of concentration, focusing and repeating (although this esoteric thing was not intended).

So what is it?! I know this will sound weired at first but did you ever try to balance an egg on a fork? On chopsticks? A knife? I would not advise doing so under real world circumstances you might end up with a slimy mess. Here is your chance doing it virtually and even compete against others via world highscores or against friends (AGON online).

Simulation of real world physics is very realistic, means balancing the virtual egg is quite similar to balancing a real egg. On startup you will find a short instruction just in case. But honestly, I don’t think you will need it. Have fun! You will meet me in the leaderboards.

And hey, I forgot to mention. Level “SPOON” gives you the possibility to combine egging with real-world-body-activity, your own creativity and social context. Figure out some rules with your kids?! Like: make it to the next tree and back or walk on the curbstone. But don’t drop the egg. This level’s rules are up to you.

INSTRUCTION

BASICS
Holding your device parallel to the ground and checking if the menu is nicely aligned makes sure you have a good starting position. Choose a level and balance the egg.

HIGHSCORES
Before being able to enter highscores you have to login with your AGON account.

RULES
Don’t drop the egg! This applies to all levels.

Level spoon: Invent your own rules for parties and other social context. Very good for playing with kids. Timer will be stopped by tapping on it or dropping the egg.

Level fork: balance with fork as long as possible.

Level knife: balance with knife as long as possible.

Level chopsticks: balance with chopsticks, stay on top for 20 Seconds.

AWARDS
You can earn 3 awards. Bronze feather with chopsticks, silver feather with fork and golden feather with knife.
