Word Search For Kids 2

  • With the success of my first Word Search For Kids game, I'm releasing a sequel about a year and a half later.

    The sequel looks much cleaner as I hired a graphics artist to handle the job. Mark Quire, found him in the For Hire forum. Awesome guy.

    This will be my first attempt at doing inApp purchases as well. For version 1, I used phonegap to compile for droid and ios. I might go with CocoonJS this time around, we'll see. Still in beta, so some graphics may change.

    My release date is set for Sept 30th. I may also do a Spanish version as well this time around :).

    To make it easier to expand with more levels, I created an app in vb.net to help in generating the puzzles.

  • This is great stuff. How did you achieve the in-app purchases?

  • Haven't tackled it yet. I'll attempt it with CocoonJS. If I can't get it to work I'll release with a (More Coming Soon) button until I can get it figured out and then update the game when it's ready.

  • very nice game can you create tutorial how you created this game

  • Nice! I'm interested in the word search maker, was that easy to link to the main app using C2 ?

  • Well the way I designed the app is with Arrays. So the grid of letters is stored in a variable like "A,D,C,D,F,X,G,S" etc. Then it's dumped into an array using the tokenat expression to split it up. Same goes for the Words and the Keys.

    My vb app just generates those strings after my grid is built. Hopefully that makes sense. A lot of times when working on projects it helpful to build a Level Editor, or something like this that just helps. I didn't do it with my first word search game and it took much longer to build the levels :). Now I can easily make more levels to offer and sell :).

  • Awesome work, Ed! What Ed doesn't explain here (because he's a modest guy) is the amount of work he puts in to the visual aspect too - I just supply him with pieces, he does the composition. Looking great! Pleasure to work with you, Ed, as ever.

  • Good work both of you. Looks great.

  • Thank you.

    Game is finished. Working on building some buzz with parenting blogs and such. Planning a simultaneous release on iOS, Android, Windows 8, Blackberry and Amazon.

    I'm going to end up building it with CocoonJS, and then begin to work on iAP purchases for each platform as cocoonJS gets them working.

  • It's been released on Google Play, Amazon and Windows 8. Waiting for Apple approval now.

    All paid versions now. Trying to find a good Full Screen ad company that works with CocoonJS.

  • Heya,

    Congrats on the release.

    Wondering if IAP worked on blackberry?
