Swift Project: Music Game "Sequently"

posted 20 Jun 2017, 06:29 by Alexander Wegner   [ updated 20 Jun 2017, 06:35 ]

 I had a great epiphany about a music game based on the classic tabletop game Simon with different game modi. The idea is to memorize a sequence of tunes and colors and to replay them in the right order. The number of items in the sequence in increased by one each turn. 
I've figured out four modi. The classic one is with four colors and tunes. Each game is totally random. The second game mode is similar, but with eight different tunes and colors. 
Game mode pattern will be about a series of patterns made of the known eight colors and tunes. Stage one starts with one item. The number of items is increased with each stage by one. Each pattern for each stage is unique and will be always the same each try.
The second pattern mode is the same, but this time the pattern will change each try.

I've started programming some weeks ago and I got a working prototype and a small video about the gameplay. The "Four Dots" mode is almost finished. Saving the high core is the only issue missing. As usual all the source file can be found on my GitHub repository: 
Have fun with it.
