Update: The update has been released. if you’ve got an iCade, go get it now!
I’ve released my latest update to Vector Star Brawl. The update adds iCade support for one or two players (and 2 player games work really well this way!).
I’ve also added full support for the upcoming Gamedock controllers, so the game also plays on an external display.
Note that in order to use an external display you need to have an external controller (iCade or Gamedock). At this time, touch controls are disabled when using an external display.
Edit: My piecepack iPad app is out now. Availability may vary per region, but between tonight and tomorrow night it should be out everywhere. Get it here.
Here’s a short video demo of my upcoming boardgame app: piecepack
Coming soon to the Apple Appstore.
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

The update to Vector Star Brawl was accepted today. It corrects some problems with GameCenter achievements and adds an important feature, especially if your iOS device is older: an option to lower the screen resolution.
Vector Star Brawl has been released on the iOS AppStore. You can get it here: Vector Star Brawl
It’s free (for now) so go ahead and give it a try.
Well… it’s done… After these last few months of coding and testing, today I submitted the finished game to Apple…
Update: Had to re-submit it to add support for iOS6 and the new devices with the longer screen, but it does work very well with the new screen size!
I’ve been working on finishing my first iOS game lately and I think I’ve reach the point where I’m pretty happy with the results. Now I’ll start testing it with friends and family who own Apple devices.
Today I’ve posted 3 songs from my upcoming game on Soundcloud. I wanted to create a soundtrack that sounded like instrumental surf music with electronic instruments… I like how these songs have turned out and I’ll probably make a couple more in the next few days… do comment if you like them (or even if you don’t…). I’ll probably will make them available for download in some form after I release the game.
For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new game for iOS. it doesn’t have a name yet (ideas are welcomed…) but it’s basically a Space War type of game where two (and maybe up to four) players fight it off with their space ships.
Welcome to the new Makasoft site. I’ve decided to revamp the old site and create a new place for me to post about my current work developing for the Apple platforms.
Here you’ll find news about future releases as well as a new blog where I’ll talk about different topics related to developing and video games in general.
The old stuff is still available at: http://www.makasoft.net/mac-games/
Right now the site is mostly empty. That’s because I’m currently spending most of my time on a new game for iPhone/iPad… I’ll start adding stuff soon…
