Bubble Ball- My first game

Hey guys, this is my first game ever. Bubble Ball is a fun physics puzzle game with 21 fun levels. It was a game I started in Gamesalad, but finished in Corona. (I hope I don't get in trouble for posting this...) Here's a link to it:

Please rate or leave a review, but don't be too harsh, I'm only 14 and this is my first game, but good feedback is always welcome.

    It's looks like a really good game, no joke. The only thing I didn't like was that massive stop button. You could probably make it a little smaller. =P

    Is your game really made using gamesalad? Why there is no gamesalad intro? And how did you added that alert boxes?

    This game is made with Corona, a coding engine.

    @rob.ert the game looks great!

    Sorry. I didnt read the full post... i know corona. Its nice... but i think this game could have been done on gamesalad...
  • rob.ertrob.ert Posts: 42Member
    @sabaterwb, I actually started it in Gamesalad, but when they introduced GS Direct, I went to Corona, and just decided to finish it in there. And Gamesalad doesn't have stuff like custom physics shapes, so I would have had to use just rectangle and circle pieces. And, yes it doesn't have an annoying splash screen and I can use alerts. Thanks @CowTechMan, glad you like it.

  • expired_012expired_012 Posts: 1,802Member
    Wow man! That's amazing! You should put iAds in there.

    How many downloads have you been getting?
  • rob.ertrob.ert Posts: 42Member
    I'm planning on releasing an update later on with more levels that you can buy (in app purchases), and i've gotten just over a million.
  • WeswogWeswog Posts: 1,171Member
    Nice
    did you put iads in it? or is it just free either way congrats :)
    EDIT: Just saw artonskyblue and your post so yeah definitely get iads in your game

    Cheers, Weswog

    Thats really awesome, wish you the best of luck. I really wish it could have been made with GS though :/
    How did you get started with corona?
  • rob.ertrob.ert Posts: 42Member
    I had looked at it before, but when GS introduced Direct, i went to Corona for good. Lua is really easy to learn, and it's just so fast! No gs splash screen or load time between scenes. I do miss some of the drag and drop ease, though.
  • RHRH Posts: 1,079Member
    wow, that's amazing! Congrats! Hope my first game will have even a fraction of the success you have had. And yep, I'd stick some iAds in there if I were you :P
  • rob.ertrob.ert Posts: 42Member
    Thanks, RH! I wasn't expecting it to do nearly as well as it has. Good luck with your game!
  • BramHoddssdBramHoddssd Posts: 414Member
