Heh... levels 6 and 16 are the bane of my existence at this point (both of them on 2 stars and everything else on 3).

One last suggestion to add even more realistic physics to this... make the balls solid so that they can collide against each other instead of going through like ghosts. Collisions would add a huge amount of entropy in the system which will make it even better imho.

Wow, thanks to everyone for trying the game and leaving feedback.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by a rom. Do you mean being packaged with other games and offered as a download? If that is what you mean, I don't mind at all, feel free to upload it.

There isn't currently an ad-free version but it's something I am looking in to. I've never released a paid app before so I need to get up to speed on how to go about it but I will post back here when it is available.

Sorry about that, I have edited the thread title so it is no longer misleading. I had to upgrade the android version because it was taking a long time (up to 10 seconds on older phones) for the app to reload after switching to another app or homescreen and then back to my app (during this time there was only a black screen). The only resolution I could find was to preserve the OpenGL context which I think is only available on 3.0+.

In terms of how many dots you need to complete the level, this is displayed on the top left of the screen, how many dots you currently have made react is displayed on the top right. Although for an explanation of what the exact aim is (each stage has slightly different gameplay) it is true you can't see this after the level has started. In a future update, I might show more detail about the current level on the pause screen, which would help, I think.

That's an interesting idea. I'll try and see if I can implement this and see what effect it has on the game. I think it would add quite a lot more realism. Thanks!

The game is very good. Here are the few problems/ideas:
Turning the screen off hangs the game. To unfreeze it I have to minimize it and then switch back to it.
There is no "retry" option if I get 2 or 3 stars, though it would be much more useful than "back".
It would be nice to swipe areas instead of clicking "Next".

Hmm, the freezing issue has me slightly baffled. Have you tried waiting a short time to see if the game might be loading in the background? I have had issues with the app being minimised and loaded again in the past (although I thought I had fixed it before release) so I will see if I can recreate this bug.

I agree with the retry button for those rating-addicts so this will be coming in the next update.

Thanks for the feedback

I've tried waiting for a few minutes, but it didn't help. But as soon as I minimize it and load it again it gets back to working.

Just one little suggestion, could be possible to make the game work that way that when I press play after game start it will go directly to the page/stage with the last round accomplished?

Otherwise nice game!
