    It's a great story. For new Gamesalad users you should get Roll Turtle. It's a fun game and take the time to study it as it's a great example of game design.

    A very goood inspiration to help out of the bad days making your game. Keep you motivated.

    At that time, the movies Kira watched, the books he read and the songs he listened were all about realizing dreams, for example The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by Ben Stiller. Every coincidence in life told him—now is the time.

    Congrats! I love that film too.

    Ground Control to Major Tom!

    Btw, there is a rule for being feature on Googleplay,

    • You should be ready to integrate Google Play Game Services + Player Analytics/ App Licensing.

    How did you achieve it with Gamesalad?

    @Toque @BazookaTime @Hopscotch @jamie_c @RowdyPants @Braydon_SFX @neoman Thank you guys, you guys and GS forums like my family, I always thank and look forward to seeing your comment.

    @mhedges The Flash is my favorite album, every week I will be fixed to watch, and I really like to hear D.r Wilson said "Run Barry Run" :D

    @unbeatenpixel This song is one of my favorite songs!
    And your question is really very good!!
    Please forgive my English is very basic, but I will try to describe it.
    This is also the Roll Turtle to get featured, I have been very worried about the problem.
    Everyone knows Gamesalad can't support Google Play Game Services, and Roll Turtle does not support Google Play Game Services, I thought Roll Turtle could not get Google Play featured, I do not know gamesalad produced the game has not been google play featured, Perhaps Roll Turtle is the first, I spent a lot of time communicating with the google play editor team, and here are some experiences to share with you guys.

    This info is google play editor team reply to me and ask me to adjust the work,
    I try to meet every requirement, but there is something I can not reach, like "- After minimizing the game, either via Home, Recent Apps, and/or locking the device, gameplay is not paused upon returning to the game. On screens where a Pause button is selectable, the player must return to the game in the Pause menu when navigating back to the game." It made me hate the gamesalad, this is must resolve before feature consideration, Google Play Services is Optional suggestions, Roll Turtle has not reached these two, But they love Roll Turtle, They made a case for Roll Turtle, I can not believe it, but it really happened, they told me that once the gamesalad update support these function, Roll Turtle must also be updated immediately.

    I. Must resolve before feature consideration:

    • The app is using visual elements from older platforms in some areas (for example Gingerbread or Holo visual elements on Android 5.0+ devices). On Android 5.0+, all activities must inherit Theme.AppCompat, Theme.Material, or one of their descendants. All UI elements must use styles from the Material/AppCompat palette (e.g. Widget.Material…, Widget.AppCompat... or ?android:attr/...). Please refer the attached screenshot for more details.
      For more info:
      http://developer.android.com/design/material/index.html

    • After minimizing the game, either via Home, Recent Apps, and/or locking the device, gameplay is not paused upon returning to the game. On screens where a Pause button is selectable, the player must return to the game in the Pause menu when navigating back to the game.

    • To maintain a consistent user experience, the Android Back button must:
      • Have the same functionality as any on-screen back or close button
      • Dismiss all dialog windows
      For more info:
      https://developer.android.com/distribute/essentials/quality/core.html#ux
      https://developer.android.com/design/patterns/navigation.html

    II. Optional suggestions and other feedback:

    • Consider implementing Play Games services into your game. Adding features like achievements, leaderboards, and saved games can lead to increased user retention and engagement. Play Games services can encourage users to compete with friends or approach gameplay in new and interesting ways. To get started, please see the following:
      http://developer.android.com/google/play-services/games.html

    These info are publicly available on the Internet and can be easily queried. this is not a secret, but I really hope that gamesalad can be updated as soon as possible.
    Even if the Roll Turtle was featured, it still needs these features in order to get a better player experience and better position.
    If Roll Turtle want to do "editor choice", these features must be necessary!
    Hope that info helpful to everyone, thank you.

    Thank you for the explanation.

    If they meet these requirements, this is a win-win situation for us and gamesalad. They get some attention from more customers/developers than ever with featured games. @ForumNinja
