Naken Video Poker
Posted: December 5, 2010
Here is my very first Android app. This is the video poker game that I wrote for standard Java and made it into a J2ME app for older mobile phones. I rewrote pieces of it to work on Android phones and made new cards by drawing with a Sharpee marker on printer paper, scanning it, cutting out the pieces using The Gimp, and putting the pieces together with Dia. I made a demo version which should run in a web browser here.
I recently made a newer version of this to run on the Nook Color and Nook Tablet. It's currently listed on the Nook app store under Mike Kohn Poker, although it's not getting very friendly reviews so I may take it down. I guess some people don't understand that 1) being a free app, I can't afford the copyright to use professionally drawn cards 2) my idea of hand drawing the cards in the style I did was supposed to be my idea of artistic and give the game a boost of personality from me. Owell.
My plan is possibly to add sound to this and also to make an iPhone / iPad version of this using GL to rotate cards and such.
Download: Naken Video Poker is available on the official Android Market
Posted: December 24, 2010This is another one of my J2ME app for older mobile phones that I've rewritten for Android. My friend Joe Davisson drew all the graphics for me and the words come from a wordlist of over 7000 words I download from.. somewhere :). I recently added Swedish and German lists and ported it to the iPad / iPhone: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/michael-kohns-hangman/id412378416?mt=8&ls=1.
To install this, you may have to change some setting on the phone to allow installing applications from sources other than an official app store. This link explains it: http://www.instantheartrate.com/android_manual_install.jsp.
This game is also now listed on the Nook app store for Nook Color and Nook Tablet. It has a new dictionary with more ordinary words instead of the "jargon" password cracking dictionary and a couple new wordlists. I'll probably move those to the normal Android version when I get a chance.
