For some reason it alternates from starting at 20 and 30 chips, not sure what's up with that. So... is it just a Blackjack simulator? If it is just that, I guess it's pretty good.

Developer

Yeah it's random between 10, 20 and 30 chips. :P

Seemed to work pretty well for me, definitely lost myself in it for a bit. You should make a cribbage game next.

This is some great stuff! I got a good laugh out of that losing screen. Pretty much sums up my blackjack experiences.

Nice work! My biggest issue is that when you lose it says "bust" but I think bust is specifically when you lose by going over, no? Otherwise it's awesome that you could put together a decent blackjack game in such a short time. Congrats on finishing and thanks for playing/rating mine!

yeah I even had "replace bust w/ a lose sprite when you're losing to not confuse the player" and I just never got to it :( - and thanks for the feedback :D

I kept putting all my money and always winning, to the point where I thought the game might be rigged and I could never lose.
And then I lost everything, guess it's just like it happens in real life.

Developer

heh yeah that's how it goes it seems :D, thanks for playing/testing - wish I could've fixed a few more bugs before submitting. Sometimes there were times when you had blackjack 21 and the AI would beat you which was hard to pin point :'(

With that said I appreciate you playing, my first game jam :D

5/5 stars for the story, story of my life

also i should never be allowed to play blackjack clearly, any time i win even a little, i bet half of all my money in the next round and instantly lose it all with my newfound hubris :D
