You should probably delete this video. I'd hate to think what our robot overlords might think, should they stumble upon it after the apocalypse...

Life sucks..
I had a Brain Tumour and spent about six months in hospital. That wasn't fun!!

I've made over 300 games, and barely any of my family could give a munky's.. Happens.
Life..
Carry on, and do what you can, when you can.

The tumour was removed successfully and with relative ease. My mind is as fully insane as it was when I went in, so mentally I'm pretty much fit as a fiddle.
My balance has been thrown completely out of whack, though. At one point I was vomiting every single day, without fail, for about three months.. According to one doc, it's down to the fairly large hole that remains in my head, where the "large marble" sized tumour once was!! The brain fluid is sloshing about in there, and causing all manner of balance problems.
Some people "get over it", but with me, it's nothing but an ongoing health hazard. I can move about the house Ok, but lengthy standing, or outdoors walking is a total struggle.
Essentially, I've become more of the person I was to begin with!

Whereas previously I would sit and code for hours because that was who I was, now I HAVE to sit for hours or I risk balance problems!! .. So I might as well carry on coding whilst I'm there!

At the end of the day, I've lost my "outdoors" ability, and have pretty much become a total recluse. My social life is all but dead, and I spend all day sat on the couch, typing away.

In many ways, my life has taken a bit of a nosedive, but I'm lucky in that I was always the reclusive type to begin with. I guess that makes this all a bit easier.
I know that my life is better without a tumour, and I'm thankful that the docs managed to do it without causing any kind of severe mental damage.
If I'd have lost my coding, I'm not sure what I'd do...

After my brain surgery, I'm mentally fine, but my balance is completely shot to pieces.
My doctor kept telling me "it'll get better." and not to worry.
But day after day, week after week, month after month, it didn't get any better.
"It'll get better."

I started to worry that maybe it was just me, and I tried to push myself, but that didn't help either, and in many ways pushing myself usually made me worse.

After about a year or so, a different doctor said.. it was fine. That my balance is "just like that, now" and that it probably won't ever return.
In a lot of ways, family members were shocked by that, but to me the idea that a doctor had finally said "that's just the way it is", made me feel SO much better about it!
Since then I've learned to deal with my off-balance as it is.
It's good to get told you're actually not well, and that it's not just you being "silly".

I'm glad somebody told you the worst, and that it's not bad news :)
Stay safe!

Indeed, good luck!
Apple Maps turned out "not terrible", but it took a while. I expect Music to be just as .. Um.. Not terrible!

FWIW, I've already bought 3 new albums in the past few days. This thing's addictive!!

I hope that by rebranding the Ouya store and making it appear on more devices means more people will see the games.

Congrats on reaching over 170 spikes!! Yikes!
My current furthest on that level is 113, but my top score is 9273.
Combos and Supers are your key to a good highscore. (Although quite how the current iOS top scorer managed to get over 300,000 points is beyond me!! Some people are truly addicted to this game!)

For "records" tap either of the black "score" circles on the right.

+James Gamble Combos and Supers are what always get me killed lol, that's why I try to take it slow and when I go too fast I always get destroyed. As for the 300,000 points, yeah this game is definitely a game a lot of people will get addicted to. Personally I've never been the type to get addicted to these types of games although they are definitely loads of fun.

fingers crossed

My sister had Gromits when she was about 6/7 years old, I've still no idea what the point of them were!!
Hope you feel better, and at least they're doing something about it, now. That's a good thing.
