Last year I was in the mood to write a game, and in exploring the LÖVE game framework, I wrote a few old-school retro games under a project I named RetroLove.
Recently I picked up the project again and consolidated the three games I’d written (Pong, Breakout, and Asteroids), into a single game with a selection menu. I also started exploring how to release the game, even going so far as to figuring out how to get the Android port of LÖVE building on Windows.
Today I’m announcing the v1.0.0 release of RetroLove for both Windows and Android.
Both the Windows zip release and the side-loadable Android apk can be downloaded from RetroLove Releases on GitHub.
Additionally, you can get RetroLove for Android on Google Play. This marks the first time I’ve released an app on a mobile platform!
Check it out and tell me what you think,
P.S. While RetroLove itself is not the most mind-blowing game, the exercise has gotten me both my first mobile app (only 8 years in the making!) and gotten me well set up to building and releasing more games with LÖVE.
