Akarun
« on: September 28, 2012, 06:56:45 pm »
Hi,
for a couple weeks ive been working on logic game Akarun (may be not the final name). When its done i will use it as my last year high school project.
Why im posting it undone? I need some feedback.
Especially im looking for:
-How does it look on different displays
-What do you think about control
-Whats the performance on different devices (i used the fps counter from helloworld, so in log you can find the numbers)
-Bugs (when you find one please post log too)
-Ideas
-Text correcting in "How to play" section, im not sure if its clear enough
-How long does it take you to solve the level(s) - i mean how hard do you find them?
-Is it fun to play?

I was thinking about making two versions of the game: Lite (only a few levels) and paid (10Kč  = cca 0,39) Full(a lot of levels + some new features, new types of blocks or something). I know im not going to make a fortune by this game but i was just curious if its sellable, because may be i would like to make something bigger later. Do you think i should try that?

Now some screenshots:




And apk is here:

Any help will be appreciated.

Hurray, I completed first two levels ;) Bug: If screen is turned off while playing the game, is showed me loading but nothing else, I have to go to the game menu by back button and touch on the continue... On my SGS3 everything looks fine.

It's nice to see people from Czech republic, Can I ask you which school are you studying?

I had a similar issue with the loading screen on the transition from level 2 to 3. It displayed loading, flickered a little and displayed loading again. I had to press back to fix it. Apart from that, everything was fine and smooth. It's not my kind of game, so i quit after level 5, but i can imagine that people who are in this kind of games might really like it.
Do you mind if i add it to the projects page?

I wouldnt mind at all, id be grateful. Thank you :) When its done ill post a google play link.
Ill try to fix the bug in free time but now im going to be afk for a week.

Thomas:
Thanks for sending the time.
Im glad to hear that, i thought it would take much less time.

Edit:
Apk updated.
Bug with turning off the screen is propably solved (i think it was garbage collector messing with textures). So ive done some changes. Im not really sure what caused the Egon's issue and im not able to reproduce the problem on my phone. If you can do it again, could you please send a log?

And one question:
Do you think this kind of game needs sounds or music? I dont know many (if even any) people who plays those games with sound turned on.

When I'm playing this kind of games, I'm sitting in a train with headphones and listening my favorite music. So from my point of view it is unnecessary, but many people want music in games...
