Jumping Jack for Android

I didn’t intend to go over a year until my next game but here it finally is, thanks to the challenge set by One Game A Month on Twitter and the web – make a game every month in 2013.

Well I’m only one down so far but hopefully I can keep it together and produce at least a few.

So…. Jumping Jack. There are a few remakes of it already but I didn’t really see any that really capture the feel and look of the original, and they mostly go off in one direction or another.

Title Screen

Hopefully this remake has a real nostalgic flavour whilst also being addictive and captivating. Towards the end of development I’ve played it more than coded it, all in the name of testing of course, but have probably got on with it better than I did on my 16K Spectrum. Perhaps I just have a better understanding of it now.


I hope you will go to Google Play and grab it for the price of 99p, which is less than a cup of coffee in Costa or Starbucks by a considerable margin. I know people usually say less than a pint of beer, but remember – I’m the caffeine kid.

Visit the Google Play store page for Jumping Jack.

Many thanks, and I will hopefully see you again right here in February!


Retro Blitz – my first Android game

Hi there, it’s been a while since I was able to post about any coding I have done but I have just released (a few days ago) my first game for Android. It’s an as accurate as I could make it remake of Blitz from the Vic-20, and hopefully you will think I have done a good job.

Please follow the link and buy it if you wish to support TCKSOFT and encourage me to create more software for mobile platforms as well as games for the PC.

When enough copies have been sold to recoup my Android Developer account, I will post the PC version for free right here.

Hopefully you will consider it 65p well spent to be able to relive that genuine retro feeling and demolish entire cities at your whim.

You can get to the game’s market place page thus: Click me!

If you would rather use the camera on your phone with a barcode scanner, here is a QR CODE for the game:
