Hi,

I am independent Android game designer and developer and few weeks ago I released my first game project Frenzy Fugu Fish after 6 months of fulltime effort. Game was already reviewed on few sites and got 4.5/5, 10/10 and similar ratings (so I am pretty proud). I would be happy to get feedback on this forum from gameplay and also from designer/developer point of view.

http://market.android.com/details?id...ugu.frenzyfugu

Screenshots are below.

Frenzy Fugu is casual fish game with 45 levels in 3 sets, each set with unique graphics design of the environment and introducing new game elements. Game will receive new set of 15 levels each month.

By tilting the phone you control Fugu, the Puffer Fish and have to collect all pearls in the level within a given time limit. If you finish the level below the time limit, you get one star for each 20 seconds (up to 3 stars). Just finishing the level is not complicated, challenge is to finish it and get 3 stars.

Over the time you will meet various enemies and obstacles. There are various fish, stone fish, jellyfish, anemones, starfish, bubbles etc. Some are just obstacles some will try to eat you. In some levels you can collect pufferpoison powerup to inflate as all puffer fish do and are invincible for short period of time and even can eat smaller fish. First few levels are very easy ones to get used to control the fish and principles of the game.







The game is free with placed ads. The ads are not shown during the gameplay.

Game was developed using great free framework Andengine, I recommend it to everyone. Currently Zynga is using it for new projects.

Cheers

Milan

Great, I hope you downloaded version 1.0.3 I released this evening. There are small "clocks" on pearls to make the gameplay more tactical

Thumbs up
Here is short gameplay video created by reviewer. I need to create my own next week, as camera cannot be used for this because of tilting the phone, I have to use video cable to HW recorder.

Thumbs up Nice work
Wow the graphics looks incredible! I managed to get to level 10 in first levels and level 5 in next set )) Is there any way how to publish my score to net, like Openfeint or similar?

I would also suggest to improve help a bit, for example slowly introduce info on new game elements like Angry Birds did with introducing their birds.

Apart from that, perfect game, congratz.

Thanks, nothing is good for my ego than liking my game )))

Yes, I am planning to add there OpenFeint or ScoreLop or other service, makes sense, but I was focusing now on finishing last updates to gameplay based on user feedback.

Hmm, HELP. Yes, maybe you are right, there is only one helpscreen that shows up before playing first level and then only after you click the icon Help. Need to think about it, as you can choose to play different sets of levels since beginning. I got feedback that most of the users just skip the initial help screen and go directly for game. Need to think about it, but thanks for feedback!

Any other end user advice? As the game is only getting the mommentum there are possible changes to gameplay

Here is one bug

When I switched off sound and vibration almost at the same time the sound did not stop and it was not possible to switch it off even after I ended the app. It happened to me only once and when I did tapped sound and vibration immediately one after another.

This happened to me with few more games like Where is my water and one other (do not remember which one).

So not a big problem, but you should know about it.

Yeah, thanks. I am aware of that bug but I am not able to resolve it. It happens occassionaly, the game is not able to switch off sound. Really rare, still I hope to find a solution. Happens to me with more games too. Thanks again for report.
