Why did I make this game?
The folks at Marmalade
were having a promotion and giving out free indie licenses to their software and BlackBerry 10 devices if you could create an app/game using their software and post it in the BlackBerry World store. I decided to take advantage of this offer so I quickly learned to use their development environment, learned to program in lua, made some simple game assets and posted Jewel Thief to BlackBerry World. About a week later I got my free device, yay!
