Hell oI am done with this app I wanted to know if you guys like it so here it is:

There is a ball in the top left corner and a goal in the botton right corner. Then there are 3 stars placed on the map. You will have to draw a line and try to collect all 3 stars. Each level gets harder and harder. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK AND IF YOU WOULD BUY IT FOR $0.99?

I don't know, how do you control the ball ? The screenshots just look like the levels would complete themselves .....

Sorry I completed the first part of it. The real objective it yto draw the line yourself and make a path. And it wouyld get harder and harder because you wouldnt know were to draw the line. And to make the ball fall you hit the play buton.
WHAT DO YOU THINK.

No need for the caps locks buddy :)

I think it's a decent idea, but will need a lot more before it is diverse enough to provide a challenge. Like obstacles and such that you would have to draw around perhaps ?

I like the idea though, it reminds me a tad of the kirby games on the nintendo ds

also take a peek at this :

Your idea isn't copying it but the graphics are.

I'm sure you can think of something more original than using a bubble ball and a flag (like bubble ball) for the goal cant you ? :)

Avoid using graphics from google or photobucket. Most of them are copyrighted and you could face legal action if the creator finds out you have used them without permission in your game.

Take a browse though this site http://www.openclipart.org/

They are all free to use without copyright and there is tons of stuff there.

Take a browse there for a while and im sure you will find something original and appropriate to use in your game :)

A bee with damaged wings and a honey jar perhaps ? The possibilities are endless

Yeah, make sure you don't ship with the Float spikes in it, etc., that would be just rude. I've grabbed graphics from other games just to get something on screen for a proof of concept type thing, just make sure you swap them out before you ship.

But it looks like it could be a fun game -- almost like you're creating a roller-coaster track. In fact, to make it more unlike Bubble Ball, using a little car or something with wheels instead of the ball might be cool.

As far as will it sell 500,000 times, no, it won't.

What?!? How can I say that?

Because the odds are on my side. ;) I'm not sure what the average number of copies sold per app is, but I'd bet all I have that it's *way* less than 500K.

However, you never know what will happen. If you *must* sell 500K copies for some reason, forget it and go do something else, it's a big gamble. But if you want to make a fun/cool game that others will enjoy, go for it knowing that you might only sell 50 copies.

But then, you never know what can happen. And it does look like it could be a fun game.

Jay

PS -- If you see something from me in the near future that's reminiscent of this, I ain't copying -- I came up with an idea while standing in the iPad line the other day and am poking at it right now to see whether it's doable. :)

It looks like a pretty cool idea if it is original, think I've seen a few things similar if not the same so you would have to come up with some very compelling graphics and sounds and generally really polish the whole thing to a high standard, as is with the poor graphics you'd struggle without some proper backing either financial for marketing or word of mouth on a grand scale.

Don't let that deter you though, keep going at it, because the idea is sound.

@cl-apps if you have any skill in creating apps with corona would you like to pair up and combine graphics and ideas to make a grand app? IF so you can send me an email - auksfrailco@gmail.com. If you decide your answer is yes, then we can work out chat on AIM messenger. PLEASE and thank you in advance.

@J.A Wayne would you like to be "partners" and make this game possible with a bunch of major changes and we could go for #1 and get us some money? Because to be honest with you I am having some problems with this. Give me an email at- auksfrailco@gmail.com
