Im can send you a banner or such. but im is no hurry and is still not opened up yet. Might take some weeks. Greedy Mouse is pretty much ready, submitted and got approvede the family program.

What im do should do is checking out how the cloud save game works as its would do excellent value for the games. Catchout and Spot Race would not care that much, but rest would.

Thanks for doing that and nice way to help me as well that way.

hey! a tile in Greedy Mouse is 200x200px, hehe.

Anyway, currectly im is still working to the controls to works as intended and get implemented them to the glbasic source code. This take a little bit more time as excepted.

So im might edit the post in the sticky thread as well im forced to get GameInput API to work again (as all my games uses it)!

Also PowerUp Elevation did newer have touch controls, so im must implement them, hehe.

Dooh im sometimes just hate when Google doesent test them property as they should.

Etc how do they accept apps that crash on launch for a first?

Also im did newer got Android Bundle thing to work at all too! That caused the game not find the lib and crashing it! How can that been happens? Really?

That feature seens not been tested very well, as least its was that that caused all the issues.

So im in ends simply just upload the apk with all binaries and then the game ran.

Im do still have about 100 installs, even im unpublused Greedy Mouse many years ago and even got a recently bad review and emailed for support. Hope he got the game to run again.

But anyway Greedy Mouse works again as well PowerUp Elevation is nearly finished for Android too. PowerUp Elevation has newer been released on Android, so that game is first time.

Im do havent published the game yet, but do that soon as im want to checking anything works first.

Also im did fixed few issues in glbasic source as well while doing this. Im have send them to Gernot.

hey im actuelly forgot one more game im could add to, a game that also newer got implemented touch controls throught. That is....

The Beagle Jam.

Howover its a game im dont want to earn money of as im uses a copyrigted character this one, hence im also renamed that game back in the days (etc im dont want to earn money on this kind of thing). But howover im could release its as a totally ads free game on Google Play as well.

Techincal its was a demake of a c64 game, not a remake.

Cool!
If you start to get downloads for it - you could also do an update with different graphics and put advert in.

While im getting to get Genius Greedy Mouse and PowerUp Elevation to work (Those to games im choosen to get work first).

But im do not have plans to want to earn money for the Beagle Jam anyway, its was just a fun little project. So ads not needed for that game, etc not planned to that. Actuelly its only Snoppy its self that required to change if im want to avoid the copyright. Its was done in code, not as a graphics.

Howover im have fixed various issues in Android Studio with better launch (now only a black screen), possible to enable navigationbar on launch (even on a given orientation like portrait while hide in landscape mode), sensor orientation as alternative to tilt, got partically glbasic_notify_screen_change() to work when enable/hide the navigationbar (still not on a orientation change as well cleaned up some assets loading code that was no longer needed.

Genius Greedy Mouse is out on Google Play again.

Spot Race is also updated and just fixed (still not open to public) - This one was very easy and only took few hours, include integrating ads. But im do choosen to do a bit fewer grids for the medium and hard mode. im fell 5x5 and 5x7 was too much on a mobile screen.

PowerUp Elevation still needs to integrate ads, but this is only required to do now. Its was clearly this game was not intended for mobile game as there was various issues needed to work out, etc some graphics was a bit unclear, font too small and no touch integration.

So the fixes im did, did do things easier for Spot Race as its was mostly sound that diddent work as intended. The c++ clean up for assetloading was important to do.
