New game I wrote, my first UWP app

Hi everyone,

So if you have some spare time and are interested, I’d love it if you’d try out a new game I just wrote and put in the Windows Store. It’s a UWP app, believe it or not, so now there’s … how many altogether? Seven? Hahahahaha…

But anyway, here’s the link…

Jelly Spider Smash

This is no AAA title of course, it’s just a little something you can fire up to pass the time while you’re waiting for your 4K Adobe videos to render. But I tried to do a good job.

Enjoy!

    <p> Unfortunately the Universal Windows Platform isn't Universal or I would get a copy of this to amuse myself. I am still on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. My next PC or Laptop will be a W10 by luck of the draw(sic). Too bad I can't get this for W8.1!!!</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#160209"><em>In reply to Oasis:</em></a></blockquote><p>No problem, I understand. Now that I think of it, it's almost a presumptuous assumption … "Universal" in this case means, well, Windows 10. When Windows 8 came out, I was excited to write some games for that app store as well, and at one point I had six games in the store. I made a total of $20, give or take, over the course of almost two years. I ended up pulling out because I would have had to wait until I made at least $200 just to get my first payout. That didn't seem like it was going to happen anytime soon, so I closed my account and just accepted that small payment. But now for the new store, I opened a new account and decided that whatever I would put in there would just be free.</p>
