This game have been rejected three time, due control issue, and now thinking im dropping this game for Ouya:

"Unfortunately the right stick continues to have no function once I get into gameplay on the OUYA making it impossible to play. Please feel free to peruse the developer forums or to contact developer support if you continue to have issues diagnosing and fixing this issue."

Im thinks its not a programmering bug, but more confuction how the game actuelly works, so level one text needs to been changed to the better. On Ouya im trying to uses the both analoge stick, where you move the curser with the left stick, mark it, and then move the bricks with the right stick. Im thinks they dont get the right stick in game correctly. So im gonna thinks im need to retext or redesign it a bit.

im have this text:
   drawtext(-1, 3, "Push bricks by", 0)
   drawtext(-1, 9, "right stick", 0)
   drawtext(-1, 14, "", 0)
   drawtext(-1, 18, "Release Balls", 2)

That's a shame, but it's quite often the case that reviewers don't understand the game they're reviewing. I had similar issues with the reviewers for the HP TouchPad and Pam Pre series.

You just have to make it as clear and obvious as possible.
I came. I saw. I played.

im diddent have those kind of issues in Karma Miwa and Greedy Mouse. All rejections was techincal issues, which is of course ok.

im contacting them and see what happens. Im trying to change the text.

Im property see they dosent understand the game, which is a dual stick game, but in a breakout game?

Once also said its worked on Mojo, but not on Ouya, which is even more weird and catch me out.

Propoty im might need to drop the right stick idea and using a button instead (while keeping the right stick of course)?

Just a quick chip in...
I had a bunch of kids play the glbasic games I have on my android a few days ago.
I´m glad to say that Catch Out was the preferable one, they seemed immersed on the puzzle/action . :good:

Game got finally approved on Ouya and should been very soon to been download able (it's free).

Now I'm head toward Pandora version this week after I'm got GameInput api to support it.

It's also play wonderfully with my new Mogo game controller for iOS and have supported the button pressure as well on it.

Thank Erico for the comment.
