This is my first Corona App, and it's a very simple action game. I published it today.

Thanks for reading,

Firstly, Matheu, your link is wrong, though it's easy enough to find on Google Play.
As a first game, it's really good. It's a lot better than the first game I ever wrote (mind you I did have 8 7 Segment LEDs which somewhat limits the graphics). It's nicely presented, the graphics are nicely done, the explosion effect is simple but effective. Nice parallax background. Might think about replacing the standard font text with a bitmap font, like your "Game Over", using standard fonts does look a bit obvious sometimes.
I found the controls a bit too sensitive. One of the problems testing your own game, is , that it's your own game, you know how to play it. On my Android tablet, it made navigating between the obstacles a bit difficult, it is tempting just to fly along the bottom or the top all of the time. The horizontal scrolling is also quite quick, which means it is more of a reaction game than a thinking ahead sort of game. But this might be because I'm old and slow these days. Playing Defender is beyond me now
With this sort of game though, you can always start slow and speed up , or maybe have fewer or smaller obstacles, to get people into it. If a game is too hard, people play it a couple of times, think , heck it's impossible, and dump it. Lure people in. You could also change the sizes of some of the opposition (this is easy enough). Another thing you could maybe add might be something like a smart bomb ? moving objects horizontally ?
I notice you've used both Banners and Interstitials for advertising. I think maybe it comes over a bit overloaded on Ads ; it's a difficult pick between filling it full of ads to maximise revenue and not annoying your customer base. When the interstitial first came up it was a bit of a surprise
Some of the text is aligned quite right - the Score at the top left, and the game over screen, and this can look slightly untidy.
Overall, a very good start.
Thanks paulscottrobson for your great review!!
The link now is right.
Great tips. I am going to take them in consideration for the next update.
It's pretty simple, but its a good start .
I am gonna try to implement leaderboard for the next version.
Thanks again for the awesome review,
Matheus Gaya Scandiffio.
Nice job for your first app, gave you a nice review. I also agree with paul's ideas the controls were a bit to sensitive took me a few tries to figure out the right amount of touch to apply to get it to do what I wanted.
I am not a big fan of ads but if a game has them I prefer the banner and 9 out of 10 times will uninstall a game that has a full screen advertisement (but that's just me).
Other than that though, its a great job for a first time game looking forward to seeing what you do on your next game
Can I ask that we continue this discussion on this app here: http://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/49599-jet-scape-my-first-corona-app/ whic is in the New Apps / Works in Progress forum. This thread is to show off screen shots and is not appropriate to discuss, critique, beta test the apps.

Addictive, really fun and easy to play bug smashing game with cool sound effects.
