After a request over at ppcgeeks pointing to this youtube video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEwyJm4ucns

I thought I might have a go on this game for WindowsMobile. So here it is: Billy!



Billy, the haunted man, is in trouble. Balls are falling down and he has to run to avoid being crashed. It's your task to help!

Billy can be played using the HTC-GSensor or the touchscreen and should run on nearly any resolution.

Have fun and let me know what you think!

*changes*
ver 0.41
* added 1 sec startuptime to let the gameengine initialize correctly
* fixed bug with replay button not working
* fixed runtime error with exit button
* Billy now installs properly in the Program Files\Games\Billy folder

I am very curious to try this out but I got two error messages (and i tried installing to main memory and storage and got the same messages). I've attached the error reports. I'm on a Fuze (Touch pro). Any ideas?

This seems to be an error of the gameengine not initializing properly. Uploaded version 0.41, it gives another 1000 msec before the graphics display. Let me know if this works, please. Fixed two other bugs as well, see changelog.

Wow very odd game hehe, works fine on my Touch HD.

You should a option of changing the ball texture around. In the youtube vid, they had just a black halo representing the ball which could improve the performance.

Thank goodness the music can be disabled too lol

Nice work.

Feel free to change the balls, the bitmap files can be found in the game folder. It wouldn't make any difference to the performance though.
I know that the game might "stutter" a bit if to much is going on in the background (other programs running). A softrest is helpful here
... and I do really *love* that music!

Also, 3 more ideas to make it perfect :

1) Silent mode by default (so we can launch it and play wherever we are)

2) Some levels of difficulty in the settings

3) hmmm... Could we have Billy a little bit more bloody when he is crushed (like in the you tube video). This is so funny.

Thanks a lot * * * * *
