    Tiny Defender – A Post Mortem Addendum

    If I had hair I’d be ripping it out right now. I was so happy when I finished my game, felt like a huge weight was off my shoulders. Those hours upon hour of coding finally produced something fruitful. I breathed a sigh of relief…

    And then it happened. People found bugs in my game. I was disheartend, that euphoric high I had after completing my game came crashing down… I franticly searched my code to see why these bugs existed. Then I saw my mistakes… the simple rookie mistakes I had made… man I wanted to kick myself in the ass, how could I have made those stupid rookie mistakes!

    So I have some advice for you all, two words. BETA TEST, BETA TEST, BETA TEST!

    Test everything! I cannot stress this enough…

    Seems I need to update the “What I’ll do better next time” with this tidbit of information.

    – I will test everything in my game to make sure everything works the way I intended it to
