Scott McFly has updated his Blackjack game for DS:
I posted the first, text-based version of this about 7 weeks ago as my first homebrew app, and the response was that graphics were needed. So after some playing about with graphics, sprites and whatnot for a while, here's version 0.2, now with some eye-pleasing graphics and touch screen controls!
To summarise the game, it's a Blackjack game where the object is to get to 21 with your cards without going over. It's a fairly well known game, so the rules should be straight-forward. I'll be including a complete rule explanation in the program on a later release. As in the previous release, the random number generator is only random when used on a DS, so use the program on actual hardware for the bet experience.
The next improvements I have in mind are graphics for the playing area (top screen), some sound effects, possibly some background music and the option to split your hand should you start with 2 cards of the same value.
My vision of the program is to eventually offer a fully-customisable Blackjack experience, as Blackjack rules vary considerably in every region, country and establishment in the world, and I want the user to be able to enable, disable or tweak any rules or options applicable to their preference.
Any feedback would be appreciated, as I mentioned, I only had 1 piece of feedback from the 1st release and I took it on board, so I really do value everyone's opinion!
