Hi guys, during the last Ludum Dare 21 arielsan made the game Vampire Runner as shown here
we made some minor improvements to the game and at some point some people we know that are artists wanted to see how would one of our games work with their art on the android market.
We focused a lot on adding nice artwork and polish to the game, but we are having some trouble finding a fun and engaging gameplay.
The basic idea of the game, is that you are a vampire running for your life and there are some obstacles in your way, that you have to pass by transforming into a bat like mist.
You transform by touching the screen or clicking with your mouse, and there is an energy bar that is spent while you are transformed into mist, once it is empty you don't go through stuff anymore and the energy bar recharges while on normal vampire mode.

Play on Android - here
The latest iteration of our game before this remake is available on the android market here
, in that version the game didn't have a max speed and the level generation was mostly a periodic generation of a wall with a random wall width. Some people liked the game and still play it but it failed to keep a big number of people playing.
The biggest issue we see with our game right now is one of mechanics and level generation, right now the game is really simple to play, and the mechanics are not copied from other similar games but the issue is that the gameplay is repetitive and either too easy, or it gets impossible at some point.
We are really open to any idea about the level generation, changing the mechanic, etc if you think it would make the game more fun.
We would love any feedback about the graphics, style, gameplay, or anything else you want to comment.
Hope you like it
EDITED: android version points to market release now
