    "Stickman Vs Computer"

    Your a stickman stuck in a computer. The computer has a virus and is trying to destroy you! I think the game is intense and fun to play.

    I have submitted it to Google Play and the AppStore:
    Google Play (available Here)
    App Store (Waiting for review)

    Im hoping to get some feedback once they go live to see if there is interest in this type of game and to make the gameplay better from the feedback received from here (the forums or by email). Hope to update this tread soon! :D

    Solid idea for a game! Controls are a little hard to work with but cool concept.

    @Machine Rises Thank You!

    @mojpoj Greatly appreciated!
    The controls are a little difficult. I tried using the joystick but that was really bad. I also thought about making it an endless runner where the character runs automatically but then I think it would be impossible to complete levels. I'll continue to think of a better way with what BB has and of course if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them.

    Amazing forums!

    I was working on a similar style game. You could try, as a suggestion, drop a control button, make it a third of the screen and assign it left direction. Same with right, and then Jump in the middle third. I'm not a fan of the joystick when needing to go back and forth.

    There are lots of options when working with controls. And it's tough building a game using a keyboard and mouse and trying to imagine how the controls will feel on a mobile device. BB needs a true "save to apk" feature, or a "send to phone" menu option. Maybe 2.0?

    I placed large invisible control buttons behind the ones you see on screen and it really did help a lot but its still a little finicky... I greatly appreciate the advice :D

    @netkomm
    Im so glad you like it! Thank you and I agree (using a mac right now).

    I'm working right now on changing the game play to an infinite runner style and it seems to be working quite well (a bunch of levels complete) many more to go (minimal sleep until I push out an update out :)) I think or hope everyone will really like the newer version seems to be much more user friendly.

    I hope to have a progress update soon I'll let everyone know when I update the android version (top priority).

    Ok, so its finally available on the Appstore but I seriously need to make some changes with the controls and just noticed when the app is downloaded it shows up as PZPlayer which also needs to be fixed. So plenty of work still to do but time is not my friend and in hine sight at the 300 ft level I shouldn't have released it until these things were complete but lessons are being learned and I'll put out an update asap and strive to make the next one better and complete before rushing into release (growing pains) ;)

    Oh.. the link CLICK HERE

    Very interesting and cool concept. Tweeking controls and sizing should help, but overall very nice!

    Hi @pfg215, Yes, but I got the idea from seeing Animator vs Animation :) I love the videos and thought it would be cool to make a game somewhat similar but its very difficult to capture whats in the videos with the functionality of buildbox so I did what I could with what I had :)
    Hopefully if time permits and as buildbox gets more awesomer than it already is I'll be able to improve upon the game play.
