Title: Block Ninja
Post by: _iPhoenix_ on June 18, 2018, 06:33:20 pm
Block Ninja is a less-than-fully featured Fruit Ninja clone written for iPhone/iPad using the app Pythonista 3. (The app costs 10USD, but I assure you it is worth every penny of that. It is easily the best Python app in the app store with loads of features you will use and loads of features you didn't know you'd use. I'd actually rather program in it than in the default python Mac install).
It has a lot of awesome features and because of built-in sprites and a decent amount of math it looks quite good!

Download the latest version of BlockNinja.py from this here (https://github.com/Legend-of-iPhoenix/BlockNinja/releases/download/v1.2/BlockNinja.py) and Pythonista 3 (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pythonista-3/id1085978097?mt=8) from the App Store (if you don't already have it). Load the BlockNinja.py file into Pythonista, and you're all set to play!


It features a high scores table, streaks, bombs, crits, a timer, advanced particle effects, and lots of obscure hacks and shims in the code because it wouldn't be a game written by me without them.


I feel obligated to put this in here, because I am promoting something that does cost real money. I'm not affiliated with Pythonista or its creators in any way (I'm not getting paid or anything for promoting the app), I got the app myself, toyed around with it and think the app is awesome, so you should totally get it, too.

New in v1.1:
- The timer flashes red when you are running out of time
- Loads of helpful and funny (if I do say so myself), in-code documentation.
- Optimizations
- Blocks hit with crits have particles that travel farther.

A small change, but I fixed some Block Ninja bugs! Bombs no longer count in streaks, and streaks are significantly easier to get. I also changed the icon for bombs, because it was super difficult hard to see in the last update.

Happy Slicing! Download (https://github.com/Legend-of-iPhoenix/BlockNinja/releases/download/1.2/BlockNinja.py).

Running user code? How come the app doesn't go against apple TOS?

It was shut down once or twice in the past, but I think it uses some clever loophole.
 
As far as I can tell, it currently does not bypass the Apple TOS.
