The year is reaching its end which means a lot of minigame compos will reach their deadline aswell.

What about a minigame compo for B4A with a Christmas based theme for the game(s)?

A month left to create a minigame which should be enough.

Rules could be...

- Christmas/Winter themed
- Made in B4A (source need to be provided as proof)
- Made by yourself (not taking a flappy bird or match3 game example from this forum and just replace some gfx)
- Game may not be released before by you on Google Play (as in no quick game recycling by using new gfx to fit the theme)
- Filesize limit not set yet (5Mb?)
- Deadline reached, the poll is online.
- Voting from Dec 28 - Jan 1st via forum poll?
- Attenders/Winners might know the result on Jan 1 2015

Erel knowing, he might throw in some B4i+B4A,B4i license(s) or something for the winner or top3.

Erel is so kind to donate 3 B4i + hosted Mac builder licenses for the top 3.


So it's always worth attending for that, the fun , the challenge or to explore the other side of app building (games).

See it as promoting your skills and the possibilities of B4A.

Hello, I want to participate!! I'm very excited!

excellent, that's the right attitude. :)

Where do I have to subscribe?

nowhere, if you finished something you just upload it somewhere and post the link in this thread or by personal message to me.

Can I use donationware libraries?

you mean like an animation library from a forum user? sure, as long as you don't take an entire example and just change the sprites/images.
It needs to contain own written code otherwise it's rather useless and less challenging.

you probably never saw snow either overthere so that's a difficult question ;)

xmas is not really religion depending I guess? it's pure commercial these days.

so I don't think it's a problem for you guys to stick to the theme?

The grand prize should be a new MacBook Pro so the winner (presumably without a mac) can start developing for iOS... :D

Actually, I asked Erel to donate B4i licenses (which he did) so people have less costs to jump onto the IOS train as the hardware alone is already expensive enough.
And while showing off your IOS app(s) to friends it will lead to promoting B4A/B4i aswell so it's a win win situation for all of us.

It`s the first game I ever wrote :)

I didn`t think I`d have so much fun writing it, I`ll probably write more in the future.

Thank you Sorex for starting this comp :)

good news, I think I came up with an idea for a minigame myself. not an original gameplay one (which is hard to do) but it will work out nice for the theme title & game wise.

@Cableguy have you thought about porting your B4PPC pairs game across to B4A? Maybe you could add a Christmas theme? Not much time left now, but if you throw in a few more 'off work coding' days you might be able to do it ;)
