I coded this simple but challenging free game in about 4 days.  Graphically it is very simple, but as the game progresses, it gets very challenging.  The controls are simple...touch either half of the screen to make the block in that half "jump".


The iOS version incorporates Game Center leaderboards, achievements, and iAds.  The Android version uses Chartboost.

Android:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zlicious.duality





I'm a high school student and this was my second launched game.  Give it a play and let me know your thoughts...I've seen some of my friends get a bit addicted to this.


To date, it's had about 2500 downloads...the majority on iOS.

Pretty cool also how did you get those 2500 downloads were you just telling all your friends or did you do more than that?

I see about 1,200 on gamecenter leaderboards.. Tho I didn't see a gamecenter button in-game, or maybe I missed it?  Anyways - for these type games, having a gamecenter quick link in-game would be nice.  Also, have some goals... Like bronze, silver and gold depending how well you do.

Interesting concept , think I seen other app games that are similar.. not a fan of the font either

Not sure how I received that many.  I didn't really market this app...just got lucky with it.

Not sure why only 1200 on Game Center as iTunesConnect shows about 1900 downloads (plus 600 on Google Play).  Good suggestion about the Game Center button and ranks.  I'll incorporate that into the next version.

I think it's simply cause some people don't care to have gamecenter or sometimes when you delete , they can delete their gamecenter info for the App.  Either way, congrats on the success.  It's a nice little challenge of a game and no glaring bugs / issues.
