My First Android Game: Koala Bubble Shooter

without comments

Within the last year I switched my focus on native Java programming for Android. Surprisingly most of my programming skills from ActionScript 3 programming were quite useful and could be applied to this new area. Except I had to fight with fragmentation, one of the reasons I preferred Flash over HTML+CSS back in the days. Anyways, my first game that came out at the beginning of this year was a simple match-three bubble shooter: Koala Bubble Shooter
It has 44.000 downloads and is still going strong. I just added advertising to it, because the in-game-purchases were not really what I expected. I guess I won’t retire anytime soon. But is a really nice learning experience. Keep coming back to hear about my next games.
