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).

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?

Thank you all.

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. :)

It needs directions and like an easy level first.
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.
