This was the first game I did as part of my “Games You Can’t Lose” series.
I named this game after the tv show: “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose“
This was my first attempt at changing a game. It had a couple of surprises:
- Tetris isn’t designed to win! You keep playing until you lose. So I had to come up with a way to win the game, and add it as an option in the game play.
- I decided to add a funny “TaDa!” sound, so I had to add MediaPlayer and SoundPool. This feature has become my exclamation point, and has made it into the other games as well.
- I had to clean up some code, create a new launch icon, etc
One thing I regret is that I didn’t fork the repo correctly. I ended up losing some history that I wanted to show in Github. It’s not a big deal, but I wanted to make sure whoever ran into the project knew that I based it off someone else’s work. I ended up adding a note to the project’s readme.
