    It doesn't look like you actually control anything. Just pressing the fire button and it launching a dart is not much of an actual game.

    Unless I missed something in that video.

    It needs to allow you to aim the dart holding it on screen then maybe jerking the phone to toss it, or something like that. It needs to have some type of skill involved.

    I watched the video. It appears that moving the phone around changes where the dart is thrown.

    I guess a bit but it really should do a bit more. Maybe that is just me. ii

    i have a feeling "i discovered a new game" means he is the developer but doesn't want to show that he is promoting his own app. also, seeing as he only has 1 post also leads me to believe that he created an account just to post this. its been over 12 hours without a response from him as well.

    guys be careful if you decide to buy the game. im pretty skeptical when it comes to these kind of threads

    You have reason, I am the developer and I try to promote a little bit the game.
    It`s my first game and I have a lot of ilusion on it.
    In a week I release a lite free version.

    There is nothing wrong with promoting your game at all. Next time just say so up front, I also suspected.

    I will try the free version and if it is even remotely fun I will buy it just to support you since you were honest. I just hope there is some control to it using the accelerometer etc... and not just an aim and fire.

    Without playing it I have no idea but I can picture it using a flip of the phone to toss the dart, that would be fun as that can change on each toss.

    I like dart games and had a good one on PalmOS.

    To aim the darts you must tilt the device(accelerometer), the throw button shoot the dart.
    Im introducing the wind to make the game more difficult.
    When publish the free version i posted it.
    In lite version you can play 301 and 501 in my opinion the most simply games.
    I accept suggestions to the lite version.

    Well I cannot really judge it until I play it. ii


    One thing that is important, to me at least, is the ability to move the app to the SD card.

    Cricket is my favorite game type. How about cricket and 301? You could also just have it work for all types but a limited time.

    301 and 501 or 301 and around the clock 1 to 20 simple?
    I think that aorund the clock it is one of the most funny game modes.

    I'd keep the wind in the free version ,
    It would be good if you have the ablity to save the game to your SD card
    I read where the lite version would have the 301 and 501 included ,guess there would be different levles in the 301 part and the 501 part?
    The fact that you posted back a reply to explain it more meant alot .

    I do not understand this "would be different levles in the 301 part and the 501 part?"
    The game have 3 different styles of background.
    The option to save the game into SD, in a mounth XD.
    If anybody have any question do not doubt to post it.

    Yeah it was a typo on my first post to ha . I guess what I am trying to ask is:

    If you are playing the game in the 301 section of the game ?

    Would there be different skill levels, for example : easy, medium, expert? In the different game sections (301 section , easy, medium ,expert skill levels), (501 section ,easy, medium, expert skill levels)

    Thanks

    There is not different skill levels because in first moment I implement it but shows a pointer to aim the darts be very very easy.
    If you disable the wind the game it is more easy, the wind make a little variation in the trayectory of the dart to prevent that the user point to the 20 triple every time easyly.

    If you have any ideas to the game, plese post it.

    Actually I am working to make more backgorunds styles, If any one make a great background in 480x320 I include it in the next upgrade.

    Not having played it yet, I still think having to aim by touching the screen and then"flicking" the phone would be the closest to real darts. Exactly how you flick, direction and speed, should determine the darts path just like that was your arm tossing the dart! This would make it require some skill. ii

    This shoot method it is very difficult to aim properly, and the device was in danger XD.

    No, you aim by selecting the spot on screen. I mean using the accelerometer to "toss" it.
    That determines how much force is used etc... I can envision it but cannot seem to describe it properly.
    Never mind..

    I just got it, sorry about that. I will download it and give you any feedback.

    Got it... Okay I am going to be honest here the controls are really bad.

    First what is with the wind option? Darts is an indoor game, there is no wind. Take that out.

    Second I cannot seem to aim this thing at all. I see nothing on screen to let me know if I am aiming it and I cannot get it to shoot the dart higher than the bottom of the screen no matter how much I tilt it. I tried tapping the screen, nothing.

    The control is bad, I really think it needs to be redone.

    I do like the graphics of the dartboard. The darts themselves could use some work, maybe even have various options later on.

    I would work on the control first. You need to get realistic physics in there as much as you can.

    I think this will be a really good game once the control is worked out.

    You are doing a great job so don't give up!
