edit: and bigger, maybe farther from the edges

do you mean when collecting many diamonds in a row?

my english is very limited... when I collecting many diamonds or go over many boxes... probably something with loading sound?...
to joystick: for example if I want to go forward I can just go "fast" or stop, nothing in between

no, i think it's not sound. you can disable sound from options and try again.
i guess it's because of this: jPCT AE cant handle too many objects so as an optimization all diamonds are merged into a single one. when a diamond is consumed, its vertices are sent to a far place. but when this happens all vertices of merged object need to be uploaded again. details are in this thread.  i guess this results in the lag.

@Egon can you please provide me a test jar that prints out how long uploading vertices take?

i see. my first attempt was to make a control like that but it became too hard to control. many places in game requires fine control but such a control lacks it.

thanks for testing and suggestions :D

I tried to run it on the emulator (to see at least something to get an impression), but it failed saying that the emulator doesn't support multi-touch... :'(

Thanx. It looks pretty good in the emulator given it's limited capabilities...but it's hardly playable at 5fps and without multi-touch. But i'm sure that it's pretty nice on a real device. Great work!

come on, if you had passed level 6, level 9 is a piece of cake ;D

btw, do you still experience the lag? if so on which levels?
