Site stats for Silverlight Buzz 2009

No Comments, Silverlight News, by Gavin Wignall.

Last year was my first for blogging and after steady progress throughout the year I am happy to report the following site stats from Google Analytics:

A total of 52,882 unique visitors visiting a total of 71,978 times and viewing 132,850 pages.

Here’s to 2010 and lots more content to come, happy New Year!

I have had great fun developing a new Silverlight game (here at Metia) for the Microsoft UK Partner Network Team which has now officially gone live! Please visit the game here to have a go and see if you can beat my personal top score of 443! Be sure to let me know what your top scores are under the comments section :)

The game is built using Silverlight 3 and features the following:

  • Silverlight plug-in detection
  • Custom pre-loader animation
  • Options for mouse or keyboard controls in game
  • Saves your top score using Isolated Storage
  • Different AI and traits for each of the 4 bad guys
  • Bonus points for collecting prizes faster
  • Lots of cool effects like trailing footsteps and 3D score indicators
