I like how flappy bird clones are so fequent now you had to put a disclaimer. Tongue

Also I would recommend that you add a screenshot or a promotional image to this post. That's so when we see it in the sidebar we all get eyegasms and have to play your game.

I was wondering why it was in the showcase too. Just declare that this thread is dead and link to your showcase thread. Then ask a mod to delete this one. Also if you want to generate a flow of people to your game, you need a decent screenshot or promo image to be used as your thumbnail. Or maybe you have one and my iPad just isn't loading it.

It is quite fun and new, but I got a score of 1436 by just turning the device on its right (full speed).

Looks cool. Sadly I can't try it out, though I just wanted to share a quick tip for drawing good looking clouds. If you use the oval tool in an image editor and just draw 6-7 circles, you can end up with something like this (not the best result I've gotten) in two minutes.



Make sure to disable anti-aliasing if you want to get a blocky effect. Smiley

Well I thought the clouds looked nice Smiley

First, I think the music that plays on the main menu should play in game too! Its really good and I was sad when it stopped after hitting play Sad

Second, its a little too hard. I find myself just tilting my phone all the way to one side and I just hope I don't die! Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't but not going fast is actually more suicidal than going fast.

Third, there aren't enough power ups being spawned in. I saw a total of one in around 10 games and I didn't manage to get it because I was going so fast Tongue

But overall its a good concept Smiley

For me it was just too fast to be enjoyable. Like others I was just hoping not to die while I semi-randomly tilted my tablet.
You should avoid those intrusive ads, specially when they appear right on top of the retry button.
Thr music is really nice. The graphics are polished and consistent.
I think you have a good game here, but you should improve the gameplay to make it more appealing to the masses.

Thanks for your constructive comments !

Let's try to answer to them.

- First, I thought the game was too easy when I was testing it. But perhaps movements are too "shaky" !
I will try to make them more stable and less fast. A kind of "anti-shake" system.

- The fact about going fast is due to some gaps that can be tooo big. I will add some checks to ensure that gaps can't be too big.
Less big gaps + anti-shake system will surely solve most of the gameplay problems !

- Powerups are quite rare because I wanted to have a first "clean" version with not too big scores. So now, I will add one or two more powerups, less powerful than the heart-shield one. And this last one will be a bit less rare.

- I don't want the music to be a complete pain (despite the fact I composed it to be a pain Cheesy), I plan to add a softer music (a bit less meowy) to prevent your ears from bleeding when playing too much.

- For the ads on the retry page, it was already a question in my mind. I think a banner appearing randomly during the game and only for a few seconds would be less intrusive and less error-clicking.

Next update will come at the beginning of the week !

Hanggliding Dog is a nice idea but Red Bird is a little bit boring...
