Forest Train 1.1 Coming Soon

Along with Circle Stars, I’ve been working on a version 1.1 of Forest Train which should be available in the coming days on PlanetPhillip.  This version brings improvements to the mounted gun and Hunter-Chopper battles and also fixes a bug with Manhack spawning and the train getting stuck on small items.  Other miscellaneous things were also addressed.

Circle Stars Released!

I’m proud to announce that my first personal game project has been released! Circle Stars is now available in the Google Play store for Android devices!


Get it on Google Play
As you can see in this video, the gameplay is simple. You tap and drag lines on the screen to form shapes and try to capture as many Stars as you can before time runs out. You gain extra time by capturing UFOs, but lose time when you capture Comets. The more Stars in your shape, the more points they are worth. There’s also a “Star Bonus” where if you capture the amount of Stars shown, you’ll get an even better bonus. So, choose how you want to play – go for as many as you can, or go for precision? It’s up to you!

I’m also delighted to say that this game is offered for free with no ads, no in-app purchases, no nags for ratings, no social media postings, etc.

New Game Approaching!

In addition to my mods, this site is meant to be the home of “other curiosities.” Today, I’m happy to announce that one such curiosity is officially on its way!

It’s a new app I’m developing for Android phones and tablets. A touchscreen game simple enough for anyone to understand, but challenging to master. I’m putting the finishing touches on it and, when it’s finished, it will be offered in the Google Play store completely free of charge with no ads, no nags and no annoying social media integration.

More to come.

Another Forest Train Playthrough!

It’s time for another great Forest Train playthrough! This one comes to us courtesy of Jason Mojica, a.k.a. GeneralVivi. Mr. Mojica has a great deal of experience in level design, having worked on games such as BioShock Infinite, Call of Duty Black Ops II and the oft-forgotten and underrated Singularity. Yesterday, he took a gander at Forest Train. He really enjoyed it. He doesn’t talk much throughout the video, but he does summarize his thoughts toward the end and, of course, just observing what he does during his playthrough has its own benefits.
