Since Lobo suddently jims in and want to do some graphics for the game (first time that happens), then im have went back to a project im scrapped for some years ago (hence the source code for the prototype is currectly removed). Its a fun game to get back too. Later its can being a Spectrum Next game? We let see. A version to C64 could been fun too. But for now its a Windows game :-). Im have currectly no plans to release the game to mobile platforms.

Here is a early look of that game...<

Yes, the graphics have been in much better since that. Currectly im have graphics for 5 Worlds.

Looks good, picking up old source can be a real headache though as I’ve recently found out!  :P
Cheers,

4 Worlds finished, only requiire eventuelly tweeks. The 5 one is half finished.

The only enemies here is those elevators (as well spikes).

Im guess Its Will take about a month to get it's finished.

Recently the bird on the menu so now blinks it's eye.

Funny,. Somehow also I thinking about changing now away from Android. But in my case it's because I now see behind marketing. So I'ts nearly impossible as an unknown "real independent" developer to get anything. It's so many fakery behind the scene  :( 
Time will come. It's just a matter of time...

im have no access to a Mac (nor vmware), and Android Studio is soon required to been done for Android.... Some annoying move and much more time waste really. So no, im have currectly no plan to do that, and not sure im will do that in time in the summer?

Howover Amazon's Fire tables versions is still fully been possible to do. Even the newest 2017 Fire Tables still only use Android 5, which is perfectly.

So the game could been do to Steam and Fire exclusive this time.

Maybe Gernot has some magic in the works? *he hopes*

Steinbock, yes I agree its harder to be seen on mobile these days - but I see little games by small houses getting hundreds of thousands of downloads - without marketing, but yeah, big guys are swiping up the majority. But there are still Flappybird-like success stories every week.

Android and Playstore is still a great platform for mass downloads, its a bummer that Google is forcing this.
