Hi guys/gals

I've just got my first Android game to a reasonably stable state, though this assumption is based mostly on emulator work. I only own a N1, so I have no idea whether this app will even run smoothly on older hardware. I'd love to hear some feedback, here's a market link and apk, enjoy!

Description:
Herd little particles of dust off my desk, racing against the clock. Either battle for high scores in time trial mode, or try and tackle 5 mazes (more coming!) in three levels of difficulty.

Changelog:

1.3:
  • New bonuses, black hole and bomb!
  • Updated Instructions
  • Minor Fixes

1.2:
  • Fixed Rotation Bug
  • Added ability to share scores

1.15:
  • WORKING on Samsung Galaxy S!

1.1:
  • Added bonuses (time bonus or freeze bomb!) on Time Trial mode
  • Fixed sound levels
  • Minor bug fixes

1.01:
  • Fixed crash on finishing level 5
  • Fixed back button
  • Fixed typos :)

Searching for it Market gives me:
Code:
There are no matches in Android Market for the search: pname:tommedley.android.game
Also, downloading the APK provided, installing it on my Android OS 1.5 on my Motorola Backflip, I get the error:
Code:
C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb install dust.apk
283 KB/s (1876582 bytes in 6.475s)
        pkg: /data/local/tmp/dust.apk
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK]

Very nice game. It runs smooth on my HD2. You may want to put up a screenshot or two and give a little description of what the game is.

I made an article for it, which will go live soon. This should provide you with enough feedback.

I have only compiled against 2.0 for now (and as a result there are some incompatibilities). In the future I will get around to making it work for 1.5+. This would also be why it didn't show up in the market for you, sorry.

I haven't tried the game yet but the instructions has a spelling error. You wrote "Normal - not to bad" when it should be "too." Just a heads up. Going to try the game now.

Thanks! I've also noticed the target image is wrong too...
