Hey guys, I wanted to make a quick game in a few days to get the hang of ads, leader boards and iap, and this is the result!
I used the wonderful LibGDX library to code the game, and photoshop for the art.

The game is very simple:
- Tap either side of the screen to punch in that direction.
- Punch penguins to gain points.

I'd love any feedback or recommendations.

Now that was a funny little game. Smiley

I like the graphics alot, though the clouds perhaps could be moving. I got a best record of 43 before I ran out of patience. Cheesy

This is pretty cute.

It gets pretty repetitive though, so a little more variety would go a long way: maybe power ups, maybe different kinds of enemies, etc.

Also, if you punch too soon, there is a long "cooldown" period before you can punch again, which is pretty annoying. I guess that's a feature to prevent people from just button mashing, but you might want to look at other ways to do that- maybe have the punch animation take longer so there's a "warmup" period before each punch instead? - Coding Tutorials!
