Oh I'm glad that you are back into programming :) (I also didn't know you were into Android game making and I didn't know that Game Maker Studio supported platforms other than Windows)

I'll give this a try when I get a chance. I hope you can eventually release an update with improvements (eg maybe change the fonts and some colors). :)

Wait, do you mean that Game Maker version costs money? O.O Or do you mean the fee to submit games to Google Play and having made $300?

GMS is really top notch now, and the export modules are $100 per,
They did a one time deal with humble bundle (for tax reasons and to build up the community).

Google play is a 1 time fee of $50 for a publisher account

Ouch, that's expensive considering it's just game maker and the ability to release games on mobile. Is there a free mobile version with ads like we had for the PC at one point?

I think I'll stick to languages if using GMS on mobile is so expensive. >.<


Anyway back to the game, I ran into some issues while playing: No matter what I do, half of the time I'll get a game over 3 seconds after the game starts, even when moving the dot around. Sometimes a red trail will appear then I can continue playing, though. You should make it so you can't die until you moved 1 second.

@DJ Omnimaga You can develop all you want, but you can't compile to it to any but windows  ;)  (Point being is that someone with the module can compile it for you (while you still can test and program on windows))

@pimathbrainiac Ya, just a one time fee :)

It's a $25 one-time fee, last time I checked. Pretty abordable.

@DJ Omnimaga  Compatibility issues with what?

Do you mean programming with one client and programming on the other,
or do you mean programming for windows and exporting for Android (etc)

I mean if you write your game on a PC, are there risks that errors occur on Android or vice-versa when trying to run the game? For example, some TI-84 Plus or TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition games will not run properly in some emulators such as Wabbitemu or jsTIfied.
