    Game looks interesting, the art could use a bit more work. Also, the font at the end, large9, is my absolute favorite font. Take a look at my avatar for proof :)

    You are right...I suck at graphics....but the game IS interesting, there's a free version if you want to try, also, iphone version (both free and paid) are coming out in a matter of ours.
    Thanks for the comment anyway, I apreciate that you took a look at it, and express yourself!

    Ok I have a report for you to look at below. Hopefully it will help you to make the game better.

    Art - I know you said that you suck at graphics, that is why I think you should hire a graphic designer to take care of it. While I do know some great coders who are also great at art, It is not a common thing and I don't think you have that. Go out and hire a graphic designer to remake this and make it look good. In the long run it is going to be worth it. You can find some great graphic designers around here that wont break the bank.

    Music - Find some good music to put in this game. Ask yourself the genre of the game you have made and find something that will match your gameplay and keep the player listening. It doesn't need to be a fancy long custom track, just something nice and sweet that wont make the user want to mute the game. Make sure you have the rights to put it into the game as well.

    Game - The gameplay is nice and unique. I want to keep playing the game. I do not think you have a major problem in this area. Practice makes perfect and if you keep making games and watching the tutorials, you will get better. That is how we all learn.

    Summary - The actual coding on the game is not bad, but that is hard to tell because of the stuff that is lacking, like good art and music. I like your gameplay though and I think if you fix up the game a little by adding in better art and music, you might have a game that attracts a few people and does well. I hope I have helped you with this in some way. Good luck with your game and keep us updated on what you do. If you ever want to talk further, I have my email and Skype below.

    Cheers
