[Game] Look out! [1.0]

Here it is - my first game for Android - Look out! At last released.

Brevity is the soul of wit
I wanted to make it as simple as possible:
- Very simple plot.
- Simple graphics: only black and white, lines and circles.
- Simple music: one melody, one instrument.
- Simple gameplay: just tap the screen to jump and evade the falling stuff.
- ?????
- PROFIT

Well, it was not as easy to write as I thought. But now I have the game itself, game engine library (not finished yet), engine for simple vector animation with keyframes and home-made motion capture system.

Enough said
Beware falling cactus. Don't stand. Jump, jump, jump!

Requirements
- Android 1.5+.
- No additional permissions.
- Should work on any, even low-power, device (tested on HTC Wildfire).

It would be really great to hear, do you like it, is animation smooth enough on your device, isn't it too easy to play (I could not get 2000. And what about you?), etc.

Simple yet addicting game. It runs rather smooth on my captivate. I think the music kind of suits it.

Not sure if it's just affecting me, but when I try to click on the options it sort if just wiggles then does nothing.

Is the person supposed to not be able to jump in the middle?

I like it a lot! Good job. It needs directions and like an easy level first.

There is no options yet. Coming soon. And yes, the stickman could jump only right or left. Could not explain, but I think it would be better.

What do you mean by directions? There always only one direction to jump: from left to right or from right to left. I'll think about easy level. For now cactuses starts falling slowly and accelerates in few first seconds. Possibly it must be more noticeable.

How much points can you get? Could anyone pass 2000 (I can't, only 19xx) or maybe even more?

Note: jump oftener and score will grow faster.
