New Android and web release of Newton Adventure

Create your own platform game using Newton Adventure

Newton Adventure is not a game engine, but his code is opensource and not hard to understand. It is therefore quite easy to create his own levels/mods/games using it.

The first step to create a Newton Adventure derivative is to get the sources and compile the game and the level editor. This procedure is documented here.

Scoreserver and ajax

I added a small improvement to my score application server: scoreserver.

It was already able to:

  • handle game and level setup using a backend web interface.
  • receive and update highscore tables with a http request.
