Joe & Milo [Universal] -a frisbee arcade game-

Loosely based on the frisbee game of California Games!

Use Joe to launch the frisbee and Milo the pug to grab it in the air, very easy

    Took me a while to work out what I was doing (!!!) but it's a fun game! Nice twist with the dog!

    A couple of points:

    I found the initial tap for power/angle stuff to be a bit fidgety…
    There's a tiny gap in the ground on the beach level (I'm on a 5s - not sure if that's helpful)
    Sometimes I couldn't see where the dog was as he was under my thumb (controls!).

    Overall though, it's a very nice game!

    QS =D

    Thanks a lot @quantumsheep ! It's always a pleasure to hear suggestions from a nice game designer/game creator like you !

    For the tiny gap I'm dying!!! There're no gaps on the mac creator, but sometimes they appear on devices (even on the kindle fire).
    This is a very old bug, I remember this bug in some of my GS games of 2010.

    For the control system you're right, lots of people told me it's not so easy, I was thinking in something like Angry Birds gameplay..

    Don't worry about it *too* much! It's not that big of a deal, I only mention it because you got so much more *right* with the game than wrong! It's a minor detail, don't worry!

    I get what you're saying. I think what I found tricky was that I would sometimes tap when I wasn't ready to, or it wouldn't register a tap completely, or stuff like that.

    There are solutions, and I wouldn't worry too much about it. It just sometimes got a bit annoying.

    Lovely graphics and as I mentioned, having the dog in it was a lovely touch/addition to this kind of game.
