I made a mobile game

You can play it here (Android)

It's a school project, so do not expect quality.

I might release the desktop version someday.


Any deets about how you made it? Engine? Home rolled?

C# (because I had to), MonoGame, Visual Studio, Xamarin.

I gave this a spin.

Art is fantastic and teeming with personality of course, I'd expect nothing less from a Jani game. But I thought it could do with a few tweaks:

1. Some sort of instructions would be nice. I really wasn't sure what I was supposed to be doing or even tapping on.
2. The controls are too precise for a mobile game IMO. For this sort of tile matching I'd much prefer swipe controls like in 2048.
3. I also think detonation was a bit clunky with that button you had to hit all the way on the other side of the screen. Maybe something like a double-tap to detonate would be better?

What was your experience using Xamarin? I have different people telling me that its worth the time-savings versus others who say it would be too limiting for serious apps. I'm leaning more on the side that it would be too limiting, but could be wrong.
