First things first. You like my program? Good. It likes you too. That'll be $5, please. C'mon, it's a fun little program and it is only five dollars(!). Help an independent OS X developer out.

First things first. You like my program? Good. It likes you too. That'll be $5, please. C'mon, it's a fun little program and it is only five dollars(!). Help an independent OS X developer out.Amazeing X requires any Macintosh running OS X 10.3.x or higher.Okay, Sherman, set the way back machine for 5 1/2 years ago. When I was in college, I managed to talk a professor into letting me do an independent study on game design, and I wrote an RPG. Originally it was going to be C++, but I ended up switching it to javascript, since I knew it much better at the time. Somehow, despite the delays, screw-ups, etc., I managed to write a fairly functional game and got an A for the thing. Not bad. Especially since at the time I was (obviously) a very junior programmer that really didn't have a clue how to design something of that size, and it showed.So the game itself was acceptable, but not great. Lots of stuff was hardwired, you couldn't save your progress, and it used the Netscape 4.x DOM. *shudder* But, it got me interested in writing video games in javascript, so I whipped up a few of them. Considering what they were, they weren't too shabby. Hell, I even ported Arkanoid to javascript (complete with mouse control). A year later, I got fed up with javascript when my efforts to port Pacman proved difficult. And it was a language limitation, not a programmer one.One of the little games I wrote used code out of my RPG project. The thing in that game that was rather acceptable and robust was the movement code to zip your guy around the map. So I swiped it and tucked it into the original Amazeing and made up the story about Robby the Robot trying to find his battery. That original maze is still available, it's now "Original 3" in the widget download.

Amazeing X is a completely free software. You can free download and use it as long as you like.
