Maths Rush – Submitted for marketplace review

Earlier today testing on Maths Rush completed and I submitted it to the Windows Phone marketplace review.

Maths Rush is an addictive little game that challenges you to answer 50 or 100 basic maths questions before the time run outs.  The game starts out with 15 seconds on the clock.  For each question correct you get an additional 3 seconds.  Incorrect answers result in 10 seconds being deducted.  Game over when you run out of time.

So far everybody I tested the game on always asked for one more go, so hopefully it has some lasting play value.

 

Whilst the first version is in review development of the next release is already started.  This will include Global High Score and hopefully live tiles giving feedback on how your rank has changed.  Couple other ideas but will keep those under wraps to see how they work after a quick prototype.

AppMeUp – Publish 4 Apps and you get a Nokia Lumia

Not sure how I missed this, but its a great promotion for WP7 Devs in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

In short, publish 4 apps to the market place before June 22 2012 and you get a free Nokia Lumia 800 or 710 depending on availability.  Needless to say when I spotted this last night I cracked open VS2010 and put the majority of code down form my first app,  SloganPhone.

Whilst its not going to change the world, it will be the second Slogan generator type app on the marketplace and my version already exceeds the first in features and slogan count.  Hopefully I will be ready to submit this for review tomorrow.

Provisional titles for the two apps are Weight Mate and Alien City Attack.  Couple ideas for the final app, but I can worry about that once I have got the first one out the door.

Nothing like free stuff to be a motivator.

As usual all revenue generated by the apps will be donated to Action Duchenne.
