Introduction

MixUp Puzzle! is a Memory Power Game. It can be played by anybody especially kids. It is specially designed for Windows 8 Metro & Desktop using Touch Screen and GPS Technology. It is multi-touch game so that children can play in a group.

How It Was Born?

It was born in Venture Studio when I was sitting alone in a room and suddenly I thought of making this simple puzzle game so that everyone can play and have fun with the MixUp Puzzle! Game.

Features

  • Choose Category as per your requirement and interest, and play.
  • Can be played with Keyboard-Mouse or Touch Screen devices running Windows 8.
  • Uses Accelerometer so that user can't get bored while playing the game. (I am working on this feature.)

Features Related to Lenovo* IdeaCentre™ Horizon Table PC 

  • Touch Screen
  • GPS
  • Accelerometer

How It Works?

  1. First, we collect the name of the player.

    Log In ScreenShot

  2. Now, user will tap the "Start Game" button and the location of user will be retrieved using GPS of Lenovo* IdeaCentre™ Horizon All-in-One (AIO).
  3. Getting Location:

    //Retrieving the location of the Tablet
    Geolocator loc = new Geolocator();
    loc.DesiredAccuracy = PositionAccuracy.High;
    Geoposition pos = await loc.GetGeopositionAsync();
    //
  4. Categories: Colors name, Birds name, Animals name, Instruments name, etc. User can select any category.
  5. Now the main screen of MixUp Puzzle Game opens, where some alphabets are randomly moving here and there.

  6. User has to keep up with those alphabets and put them in the right place to complete level.
  7. Here Timer counts time in seconds.
  8. Once the user places alphabets in the right position, for example, suppose there are 6 blank boxes and user placed alphabet "O" "R" "A" "N" "G" "E" in order, Big Box turns to orange colour according to object name.

  9. Used metro UI of Windows 8 to show dialog boxes.

  10. And finished game? Then share your score on your social networking site, using Windows 8 social networking tools...
    Dim dataTransferM As Windows.ApplicationModel.DataTransfer.DataTransferManager = 		 
    Windows.ApplicationModel.DataTransfer.DataTransferManager.GetForCurrentView
    AddHandler dataTransferM.DataRequested, AddressOf dataTransferM_DataRequested
    
    Private Sub dataTransferM_DataRequested_
    (sender As DataTransfer.DataTransferManager, args As DataTransfer.DataRequestedEventArgs)
            args.Request.Data.Properties.Title = "MixUp Puzzle!"
            args.Request.Data.Properties.Description = "My Score in MixUp Puzzle!"
            args.Request.Data.SetText("Yippee!" & Environment.NewLine & _
                                "I have scored " & Amount & _
                                " points in MixUp Puzzle!" & Environment.NewLine & _
                                "And What about you?" & Environment.NewLine & _
                                "Get in the game and gamble on yourself.")
    End Sub

  11. Time to replay or give feedback...

 

What's Next? 

Very soon, I will start development of an application for Intel AppUp Store. And the initial version of the application will be tested on Lenovo* IdeaCentre™ Horizon All-in-One (AIO). Can't wait any more for the application!

History

This is the initial (BETA) version of the game. And it will be tested on Lenovo* IdeaCentre™ Horizon All-in-One (AIO) for First Release...
