Walkabout - Cute tablet game :)

Post by kam187 »

Hey guys.

I just made my first android game. Its called walkabout - the idea is to collect all the stars on each level, but as you walk the path beneath you disappears. You need to think about your route or you'll be stranded!

Feedback and comments on the market greatly appreciated!! I put native tablet sized graphics in it and optimised it alot. Please let me know if it runs ok on all your different devices. I'm working hard to fix any issues quickly!

The market link for the free version with less levels is:

https://market.android.com/details?id=c ... kaboutdemo

Or you can search 'walkabout' in the market.

Full version is here:

https://market.android.com/details?id=c ... walkaboutb

Purchased as well. Lovely and very original game! 8)

The background music is a bit enerving though. At one point I thought my 101 hung, so I turned the volume all the way down.

Lol, you can turn it off on the main screen (all sound, sound effects only, no sound), and it'll remember the setting for next time.

Its one of those things, without sound you dont get the full effect at first, but i understand it gets anoying when you listen to it for ages lol!

LOL! Okay thanks kam187. I'm just one of those people that skips settings and jumps right in the game the first time out. :D
I'll change sound settings next time. I've put up a favorable review on the marketplace in the meantime.

Figured I'd support any developer who bothers to drop by in person and who seems to actually talk with folks on whatever forum it is. Besides its a cute, fun game.
