    Thanks @ZackGriset - let me tell you I've made some huge mistakes on this project. But having a ton of fun working on it full time all summer and now working on some updates to make it even better.

    Going to start working on Trixel Rocket 2 here soon as well (it's going to be mainly my game jam game since it is in the same realm but going to make it in my Trixel style).

    You're welcome @jerry, it's obvious that you put a ton of work into it. Right on, that sounds great. Looking forward to seeing it (and playing it of course). I am liking the Trixel style :)

    If it's going to be the game jam game next, call it differently :) trixel gun? Trixel war? Looking forward. Your polish is something a lot should emulate

    Thanks @DariusGuerrero working title. I'll definitely have to figure whatever it might be but definitely will be Trixel something. I'm anxious to start working on the new game but still things that need to be done to Trixel Rocket. Now I just need to learn to be a marketing master like you! lol

    I think someone was referring to Discord. Have you signed up for discord. Good place to go to get answers quicker. BB has a discord group.

    Thanks @Alterman29 @viking and @Lobsters - Man it's been a whirlwind. Been making updates to game. I'm going to admit that my last build I made some changes to the store and messed up leaderboard and store links. Ahhhh! Back in "Waiting for Review" queue to have those fixed plus updated the Main Menu to include a "Tips" button that takes you to my youtube channel for my "Tip of the Day" videos.

    Thanks for posting those Feature photos!!!!

    Stunning work @jerry. I love this game, the art style is incredible. I got hexels 3, but I suck with it. You should make hexels 3 tutorials.

    Thanks @mastermind131 and @5petersonzachary - People are still thinking game is too hard. So...??

    Actually sitting working on the game now. Changing things up. Going to build a first 4-5 random levels that the player can run through - then a UI says they have made it to the outside of our solar system, - then do a light speed level - then they will play the rest of the levels randomly. So I'll make some super easy levels that are our solar system and then after that they are on their own out there in the vastness of space!

    ... at least that's what I'm thinking as I stare at my BB doc.

    Thoughts?

    @jerry

    Your game has great graphics but as people have suggested, make the game way easier...

    I tried playing it, you have great obstacles and all different types. Plan a 10 to 30 levels and introduce enemies one by one every level.

    1 to 5 Rocks
    5 to 10 Rocks and Fire
    10 to 15 Rocks, Fire and Space ship.
    15 to 20 Rocks Fire Space Ship and Lightning.

    The first 5 levels should be easy enough even a small 5 year old kid can pass. Make each level around 30 seconds max.
    Make obstacles slower on some levels.
    or Make the Space Ship slower on the first few levels.

    Would also suggest to reward users, maybe give them a free shield on level 1
    Unlock a spaceship after Level 5
    Unlock a spaceship when they like facebook or twitter link.
    Coins at the end of levels

    I would suggest to do the point system in 1 digit instead of 4. Easy to do with invisible block which gives you points ;)

    Yep. Planning on using X number of points (1 per level) to then move to next series of levels.
