Did you make the artwork yourself? Pretty cute art style.

Well congratz on releasing the game! I tried it just now, it's very hard. I think it could be made to feel much more intuitive if you made the blasts on the right match up to the projectiles coming out.

It's confusing when you see a single blast at bottom, and two projectiles come from middle and top. If those were matching, I would be able to predict much more accurately where to move, and I think it as a player I would feel more in control and enjoy it much more.

It has some great potential for fun!

Ooooh well the intention is supposed to be that it shows the blast and a .5 seconds later the projectile appears in its place. So it is not showing up like the gif up top? I haven't seen a delay like that in my tests :/

But thanks for playing it as well as the notes!

Ohhh I can see it now! I can point out what the real problem for me is now that you mention that.

The blast for the next wave of projectiles is happening at the exact same time as the projectiles from the last wave are firing. This leads to confusion because it looks like the blast for the next wave is actually the blast coming from the current wave.

Do you see what I mean?

Not sure exactly how to change that, maybe make the blasts persist until the actually corresponding projectile has been released?

How is your app going in terms of sales etc? (in a general sense)

It's now at 26/47

Best I could do without paying anyone. I posted it on all the android forums I could find, tweeted it a couple of times, put it on a bunch of communities around google plus, others put it on facebook, and I sent it to every android reviewer I could find.

The reviews are good though!
