It has a name…..Space Blast! My Match 3 / Candy Crush clone is now named Space Blast and is available to play now via web browsers here! You can also play it on Android by installing Space Blast from the Google Play Store!
The challenge was to build a game in a month in my spare time as a change of pace from my day-job job making social-emotional learning games for Centervention. For the most part I’d call it a success. Space Blast is a match 3 game / Candy Crush clone with a variety of “special” pieces, some challenge, and little bit of polish (particle effects, sound effects, level select, etc.
Ideally I would have had more time at the end of the month to create 50-100 levels rather than launching with the measly 6 levels that I launched with:
Given another week I would have built a level generator to generate the levels for me and gradually increase the difficulty, and introduce new “special” pieces over time.
