Bit Blaster XL - Nickervision

My latest arcade score chaser is now available on Steam. Ding Dong XL is a one button game that requires to you push the button everytime you want your character to move from top to bottom, you must time your moves to avoid enemies and collect powerups while surviving as long as possible. If you liked my other one button games you will probably get a kick out of this.

If you enjoy the game, please make sure to leave a brief Steam Review.
Thank you all for the continued support, it greatly helps in my development of Super Bit Blaster XL

Bit Blaster XL - V3.20
  • Added support for Russian, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Simplified Chinese languages. (not perfect, but getting better thanks to our community)
  • Player bomb no longer destroys power ups or pickups. It also will correctly reward you ammo for enemies it destroys.
  • Resolved some issues with Vibrations, and the Vibrate button correctly working.
  • Resolved some issues with the Video Resolution menu where the player would have to sometimes hit the left or right a number of times to get the next value.
  • Mac Version should now always properly open in the Full screen with no Menu Bar below by default.
  • Resolved some graphical glitches related to Ultra-wide monitors.
  • Modified the Thanks system to display all my games on Steam as well as be more streamlined and take up less space. (thanks)
  • Screen shake issues have been resolved on screens that aren't 60 HZ
  • Bounce bullets have had another very minor color change as well as a pulse of green showing they are your bullets
  • The pause menu now slows music down gradually, as well as when resuming there is a minor delay as the music and game play speeds back up, allowing you a moment to remember where you were.

  • Resolved a few problems related to screen refresh rate and delta time incorrectly displaying objects as a result.

  • Modified some Dpad and joystick sensitivity to try and help those with bad joysticks getting the always down problem.

-Updated to newest Unity Engine Version to hopefully resolve some game closing incorrectly errors
-Developer page is now correctly linked in the thanks page

In the space of a half-hour conversation, Adam Nickerson, aka Nickervision Studios, uses a variant of the phrase I don t know really how to make videogames at least half a dozen times. Yet he s managed to singlehandedly sell half a million copies of his games on PC.

You ve probably never heard of Bit Blaster XL, for example, but it s shifted 260,000 copies on Steam. He developed it solo, in just two weeks. Its follow-up, on course to be equally successful, was developed in 75 hours.

How did he do it? He figured out exactly how to get noticed on Steam during this time of seemingly ceaseless new releases – a time that has destroyed the hopes and dreams of many other small developers. (more…)

Diamo XL is now available on Steam for PC, Mac, Linux.

Survive the constant onslaught of obstacles by moving your character to all five zones within the Diamond. Collect points before the enemies smash them and keep moving to keep your multiplier high. Fill in the four triangles to complete the Diamond and get bonus points.

This is an 'XL' version of my unreleased mobile game 'Diamo'. I have added/changed a variety of things to make it more suitable for the Steam platform. I have been learning to make games in my free time and love making small-yet-solid arcade games with simple mechanics. Please expect 'Diamo XL' to be a small, re-playable, arcade score-chaser game where the only basic goals are to constantly beat your previous score and unlock a handful of alternate player characters.

Thanks to the unexpected success of my previous Steam games Bit Blaster XL and Orbt XL I have been able to spend a lot more time learning more about game development and intend to release more bite sized arcade games like this as I also start to develop bigger and better projects. I really appreciate all the feedback and support the community has given me.

Thank you to everyone for the support of my small games, it has been life changing. Also PLEASE if you enjoyed Diamo XL make sure to leave a brief Steam review for it if you can, as I have found it to be one of the most important tools for getting others to notice my games.

Thanks for the support!
