    Asteroid Dodger - deceivingly addictive mechanics

    I just released my game Asteroid Dodger on Google Play (link to Google Play).

    You navigate a constantly accelerating space ship through a dark asteroid field, trying to get as far as possible and climb the Google Play leaderboard.

    At first glance it looks like any other simple endless runner type game and that first glance is right! What I hope to have achieved though is very addictive mechanics, it is as simple as it gets. You can apply momentum upwards or downwards by lightly tapping on the screen. I have spent many hours tweaking the acceleration, motion and frequency of shield recharge power ups to try to find the optimal difficulty, now I am hooked on it myself and I hope you guys and girls will enjoy it just as much and I am looking forward to any advice on how to improve the game.

    Hey - Mobile Editor here! Thanks for posting about your game in the forums.

    Just wanted to let you know that a writer is now working on a news article for you. I'll post a link to the article a little later when it's gone live!
