Today I want to present you my first developed game for Android and I want to say hello to this really nice community.
I want to tell you how it operates.
At first it checks that Bluetooth is available.
Then it reads the user data of the found devices.
Then the discovery process starts and it searches for devices.
When it finds one, it will be added to the list of founded devices, so that it will not beeing marked as a new device when finding it again.
Then the data will be uploaded to the central ranking server and the script will return the current ranking of your device and the number of devices, that have a rank.
There is also a level system. You have to find a set number of devices to get into the new level. This number is shown just the same as the number of devices you have found.
With the achievement system you can unlock game features and with the settings you can personalize your game.
The scoreboard shows the complete rankings, also with a nice addition, that every user that was active in the last 5 minutes will be marked as 'Searching' (Needs an achievement to see).
Please give any critique you can.
No further development!
This game will not be developed further, but has a follow-up called Blue Hunter. To go to the development thread, please head over there: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1835079
