You've a good memory :D

I did write a Christmas game called "Holiday Swapz". GreyAlien bust a nut as he had a similar match-3 Christmas themed game :P - Mine was more rushed than his as it was just a bit of fun as I fancied doing a match-3 game and it was near Christmas.
Until the next time...

I have indeed lol.   :)

Yes, Grey was always very protective of his match-3 games.  The guy seemed to think he invented match-3 games lol...A bit like copywriting Space Invaders...after 1978.   :o

..what actually happened?? He was angry or something?
In a nutshell - I posted a screen shot of my game in the BB gallery. Grey then made a post about how imitation was the greatest form of flattery ( in regards to my game ). For some odd reason his whole post was like he was the inventor of match-3 and making a game around a theme. There is not a whole heap of scope for a match-3 Christmas themed game. It was like I'd ripped off his proprietary game. He was not too pleased that there was another match-3 Christmas game in the mix. I'll happily admit that his was superior to mine. Mine was just a hobby job as I fancied doing a match-3 and it was close to Christmas.

A year ( maybe two ) later I rewrote it in GLBasic with the aim for selling it on the Apple App Store for iOS. It did pretty well. Not super great, but better than I thought. It was never meant as a game to sell originally but in a spur of the moment thing, I decided to re-write it for iOS. It was removed a while back from the App Store as it was 32bit and Apple only allows 64Bit apps now.

There you go, that's the story of my match-3 Christmas game in a nutshell :P
Until the next time...

I've just realised... I haven't made a match-3 engine in AGK yet :o ( made one in Blitz3D, BlitzMax and GLBasic )
