Default Black Jack (V2.0.1 released)

Enjoyed the game? Then you could consider to


If you have any suggestions for improvements, feel free to drop a note about it!

FEATURES:
V2.0.1
Rules: Dealer stop on soft 17, if you win you get 2x your bet back unless you win with Black Jack then it is 2,5x, if you surrender you get your bet back, tie means you get your bet back, all initial 21 deals count as Black Jack and the dealer have a chance to get Black Jack too to get a tie. Rules of Play against a Casino
Confirmation screen when pressing surrender or quit
Automatically count aces as 1 if the score would exceed 21 when counted as 11
Automatically stays on 21
Saves your cash when you exit the app (allowing for you to build a fortune if you're good )
Difficulty chooser to determine start cash amount (Easy: $500, Hard: $100)
Sound when tapping the screen, different for valid/invalid click. (Tried to make them subtle, valid tap feels almost only like a buzz with speakers on vol 15)
Mute function (In settings menu, accessed in lower right, old quit button place. Quit can now only be done via the home button)
Saves your settings
Lets you control the volume on your currently playing music both with slider and buttons
Is skinable with custom skins
To make your own skin, follow the simple instructions in the ReadMe

Known issues in v2.0.1:
May crash if skins are deleted while being active as "current skin" from last shut down, or if not deleted properly.
Volume slider is a bit laggy.
Volume control acts up at times (Seems to be a firmware bug though as the regular one does too at times)

Future improvements:
Prevent the game from crashing from above mentioned scenario, I have some ideas how to make this.
Try and decrease slider lag.

LATEST NEWS
  • V2.0.1 bugfix released. Volume no longer adjustable without the control open, and no pop on exit.
  • V2.0 released! Volume control and custom skinning feature added! (See ReadMe for instructions)
  • V1.3 released! New settings menu with mute selection! Remembers your choice. Also, new screenshots added.
  • V1.2.1 bugfix released. Down arrow is now working properly.
  • V1.2 released! Added sounds when tapping the screen.
  • V1.1 released! Now with difficulty chooser and bankruptcy detection!
  • V1.0 released! I have not implemented rules for Pontoon and such as bzdbbb mentioned, as those rules are specific for the UK. My app follows the rules in the link. There are no split or double features though, and there is still one known issue to be resolved in a bugfix.

I'd say use standard Las Vegas rules though I had some trouble finding exactly what those were.
From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Most Las Vegas Strip casinos hit on soft 17. This rule change requires a slightly modified basic strategy table: double on 11 verses a dealer's upcard being an ace, double on A/7 verses a dealer 2, and double on A/8 versus a 6. Most casinos outside of Las Vegas still stand on soft 17.

Oh yeah, I forgot a bit about doubling. This feature is not implemented in the game I already have in JAVA, because I never understood how it actually worked. If someone explained this to me it might be implemented into this game's second version or something.

After you are dealt two cards, and think that another card will allow you to beat the dealer's hand, you can increase your bet by an amount up to your original bet or "double" your bet. Your wager is doubled, and you are allowed to receive one more card.
After a 'split' you are automatically delt 2 cards (one for each new hand) so you should be allowed to then 'double down' on either or both of your split hands.

Honestly, I don't play Black Jack that much so I am probably not the best resource for the more complicated parts of the game. However, I'll give you as much input as you would like.

** It would be really cool to implement this game into a 'Casino Package' with slots and other casino games... Maybe it could even keep track of your points/money across all of the games. **

Well, you seem to understand it far better than me though
I will begin with just making it a simple "hit me", "stop" and "surrender" choice. Then I'll implement more advanced game rules when I've read up on how they work.

doubling means you double your original bet but only receive one card (i.e. a good idea when you have 10 or 11 in the hole). Splitting can only be done when you have two of the same card, your bet doubles and you play two separate hands.

Your biggest problem will probably come with the actions of the computer player. That requires a bit of AI or some complicated programming otherwise it would be very easy to work out a pattern in the decision making.

The actions of the computer (dealer) follow a strict set of rules. It isn't very hard to program. All I need to decide is if it stops on soft 17 or not.

One question. If the player stops at over 17. say 19. Does the dealer have to hit as long as he has a lower score than 19, or should he still stop if he exceeds or reaches 17?

EDIT: Also, how is it with the clothed cards? what are their values? I always mix it up with the Swedish game 21.

If the dealer has 17 or over, he can't hit.

Added screenshot of my beta interface to the first post. First version of the game itself will still be a while, but I'm working on it. Project has been on ice since I'm having a holiday atm.

Now have two interfaces made with a slight difference. Which version is the best according to you people?

I think 1 is a little easier on the eyes, looks cleaner.
But the second looks more professional

Cool game ! Can't wait to try it out But enjoy your holiday

Interface 2 it is then.

One more question; If it is a tie, do you want the dealer to win or do you want it to count as a tie and you get your bet back?
and if you win with black jack (get 21 on the initial deal) do you still only get 2x your bet back?

If its a draw the dealer should win. And you need to seperate the various ways of getting 21 on an initial deal:

Normal: 10 and ace
Pontoon: Picture Card and ace
Black Jack: A Black Jack and a Black Ace

That's the version I know anyway - also explains why the games called blackjack

Okay.

And various ways? Hmm, I have many different ways you can win, but didn't think about those differences. What is the difference if you win with either of those?
