@DJ Omnimaga @CKH4

Yes, you're completly right!
Thats the main reason, why I don't want to share the code to untrusty people. And maybe later, if the game (just in the very rare case) is kindof an success, I don't want clones or thieft using my source with no credit. Also in case I implement any ad or payment stuff, I wouldn't be able to upload those modules.
But as I said, I will allow trusty people (like you, and the people I listed earlier) to access my code repo on dropbox.com.

Hope you don't hate me for that  :)

EDIT: @CKH4 you will get the source and apk too, as you said, that you want to download it and maybe do some beta testing

@ DarkestEx Oooh that looks nice. I like the graphics, although some might seem confusing if someone gets the game with no instructions. Do you plan to have larger maps that fills the screen or playable area for the Android version? Also is the game dependent on a specific resolution like Supersonic Ball or will graphics be scaled up/down on larger and smaller screens?


Yes, I will scale it, keeping the aspect ratio and filling the remaining space with background or something else.
I don't know, what to do with the levels. I implemented level loading of any size, I even included the first level in my brand new version (no random  no more),
but it's size is 10x6. What do you think? Should I make it compatible with existing levels or should I go another way?
I will use json to do level loading, so I guess I could let you decide the size of every level, by using every level's json config.

So now I implemented level loading from json, made more textures (my ones are temporarily), and fixed bugs, restrucured the game, made the game capable of running on every device keeping its aspect ratio.

Have a look at this screenshot:

Demo android version (seen in the picture below) can be downloaded here.

Heres a screenshot:

Cool to hear about scaling. The issue with Supersonic Ball Android is that people with a larger screen had an unfair advantagr over others on the highscores list because they had a much longer field of view. Gonna give your game a try soon :D

Oooh thank you very much. For some reason though your website doesn't load on my phone. I'll have to go to the computer to test it. I'll also test it in chrome using the archon (art for chrome) player.

edit. It doesn't work on any of my devices.

Thank you so much for trying. So whats failing? Is it installing or not? If it is installed, does it crash? What's your devices android version?
Would be great to know it. :)

My browser can't make the connection to your webpage. It has nothing to do with the app.

@CKH4

Oh, sorry. No problem, I guess you're having problems with my free webspace.
I uploaded to to dropbox for you.

Download from Dropbox

CKH4

Thanks for the Dropbox link. I have no idea why it's not working but hopefully it'll be fixed without anyone changing anything.

For some reason some people are just not able to access my site (I guess due to dns problems)
Myself and most of the people are able to access it. I will one day, buy a domain name and some webspace and then it should really work.
No 1freehosting and dot.tk anymore then.

DJ Omnimaga

Dot.tk has a decade-long history of sporadic uptime problems. In 2004 and 2010 their uptime was about 40%, if not less.

So it's possible that it might not be the host.

OK, my first thoughts are that it needs a walking animation but it looks good.

We will have a walking animation. :)

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah I agree about that. Also nice to see that the game is almost full screen now (I tried it earlier and it looks nice). I can't wait to see what you will add in the remaining white areas :P
