Yep, it's another flappy bird type of clone. But don't despair! I've added some other elements to the game play. The main reason for me creating this game was I wanted a simple concept to be able to get the game done quickly. Where I spent my time was not on making a unique game, but I wanted to go through the entire process of doing all of the other things outside of the game creation to get a mobile game deployed in an app store with a simple banner advertising along the bottom. There were a lot of challenges to get things working. First off, the board here has been an incredible resource. I used posts here to handle the following issues. Proper scaling of the game for mobile resolutionsBest practices for audio in the mobile space (Kindle Fire being the only exception)Best practices for implementing pause/resumeGetting CocoonJS/MoPub/Admob integrated and workingBest practices and things to avoid when using CocoonJs/Phaser In addition, I wanted to go through the metrics of getting a good looking game out into the Google Play Store. Making appropriate game-play screenshots, videos for the store listing. How to sign the .APK file in order to be published to the store. How to handle versions after deployment to incorporate new features and update to devices. Differences between deploying to Chrome store vs. Google Play vs. Kindle marketplace using a single code base. The lessons learned from this process were to better educate myself on the challenges for targeting mobile platforms. In addition to these findings, I also want to include in the future: deploying to iOS, multiple ad network integration (pros/cons of performance via mopub and impressions), better marketing techniques during the process of game development through release and beyond, testing on multiple mobile devices If you aren't adverse to yet another game that follows the flappy bird mechanic, I would appreciate any feedback on the game or experience on your particular mobile platform.
