    This is a simple strategy game where you have to dodge dots. Sounds pretty simple right? Wrong. Your jump height is random, same goes with the dot sizes. This app is still in development, so it is not perfect. Still need to add a game over screen and edit the score/highscore look.

    I decided to take a more professional route and edit the other game a bit. Upped the difficulty and gave it a clean look.

    Not too bad.

    How often do the dots keeping spawning?
    It may also be more user-friendly if the dot you control isn't the same color as the dots spawning.

    The dots spawn every time you tap to jump. And I couldn't find a color that went well with both the white and blue so I just kept it white, I might change it later on.

    Looks like a good simple game, but i think it could maybe use a little extra color or something to make it stand out a little more, good luck with development.

    Yeah, I had attempted to make the background change every time the game restarted but that didn't work out very well. Maybe I can add an option to change it later on. I appreciated the feedback :smile:

    I love the simplicity, and it looks like it could be addicting.

    You could put it on android would be cheaper. Apple is 99$ a year and eat a lot of your profits

    Actually this is a very bias and inaccurate statement.

    If you look at this page, Android clearly is dominating the market as of quarter 1 of last year. This is just something I saw and bookmarked a few months ago.

    Here's the chart if you didn't see it...

    So it's not only more cost effective but it's [Android] also a good testing platform.
