Naku the Cat is going to be my first game for Android devices. You play as a cat, trying to catch bubbles coming from above. Miss nine bubbles and game is over. Naku has been on development a couple of months for now. Using LibGDX and Nexus One.

Version 0.27

Is there a working game and/or code I can play with???

I love to play with stuff that people already did the work for. Smiley

Controls are simple: tilt device to move left/right, tap screen to catch bubbles.
The bubbles' and cat's speed increases gradually. Superpaw power-up will come on regular interval after a while.

Scene2d and bitmap fonts drove me almost mad. But I finally got them to work. Smiley
Game features a very simple online leaderboard system too. Database is SQLite for prototyping purposes so it might lag a bit.

All feedback is welcome!  Smiley

Coding like a mad. Almost done with this. Added graphics, sounds, particles effects and sounds. It feels like a game now!

Version 1.0 is released. This thread can be moved to Showcase.

I would like to get some feedback about game balance. It is too easy or hard for the first timer? Once you learn the controls the game become pretty easy.

The game is mainly designed to use device's accelerometer as movement controls. But I added runnable jar for desktop users if someone wants to give it a try.

Android: tilt left/right to move, touch screen to catch bubbles
Desktop: left/right arrows to move, up arrow to catch bubbles (Esc-button quits)

Windows (dunno about Linux, may work too?)

Hey thanks! I have reached 19000 but that's because I made this, heh.

And the truth is, I can't draw very well. I just imitated some cute anime cats and did something that will do the job. Having a Wacom helps a lot.
