Epic Battle Fantasy 1 is almost on Mobile

Hey guys, the Epic Battle Fantasy 1 mobile port is coming along. It’s taking more effort than the previous mobile ports since it needs to be reprogrammed from ActionScript 2 to ActionScript 3, which largely comes down to a search and replace job, but with a few quirks.

AS2 lets you get away with a lot of really bad programming practices that AS3 doesn’t. For example, in AS2 you can have variables and functions with the exact same name. You can declare functions multiple times. You can use variables without declaring them. The code doesn’t crash if an object doesn’t exist – it just ignores that completely and carries on. So all of those shortcuts needed to be sorted out, as they don’t work in AS3.

In addition to that, my old code is just really bad. Mainly there’s tons of code that has been copy and pasted which should have been in functions, making updating it way more tedious.

In terms of changes to the game, the mobile version user interface is bigger! That’s pretty much it.
All the other changes are the same as in the version that will eventually be on Steam in the EBF Collection: Copyrighted characters have been replaced, there’s a new soundtrack, checkpoints have been added after every boss, there’s a new Zero difficulty option, and the game has been balanced slightly (in particular making summons stronger).

So it’s gonna be a lot less punishing than you remember it.
Anyway, it should be up on Android in a week if you’re lucky. Probably for $1.50.

Cat Cafe v2 on Android!

Cat Cafe v2 is now live on Android for $1.

It’s basically the same as the old version of the game, but has been updated to run on newer devices, has less grinding and no ads, and the bug that deletes your save file is now fixed.

The old version of Cat Cafe will stay on the Play store as a separate app, but can only run on Android 8 and below, I think.

I’m currently porting Epic Battle Fantasy 1, so please support my mobile efforts by buying my other games and leaving nice reviews. Mecha Dress Up and Brawl Royale were recently published too.

As usual, I’ll make iOS versions eventually, I’m just not ready to work on that yet.
