It says it's not compatible with any of my devices. Also it says it needs to be android 4 or up, maybe that;s why

Thanks for trying. I'm fairly sure I chose the lowest level I could.

Just changed it to add UK and Ireland. Since this is our first game I wasn't sure what the rules were. Does anyone know if you have to translate your text into the language of the country that you want to sell it in, or since English is fairly common, can you offer it anywhere without translation. Pretty sure  you don't need translation for UK and Ireland although when I went to Ireland there was some Gaelic spoken that I didn't understand :) .

Hi Pleichty

I'm just in the middle of playing it and so far it's very enjoyable :)

It works fine on my S9 and I am here in the UK...
Part of me loves the graphics, very quirky... but also part of me wonders if it would be better with updated graphics...
Other than that it's very cool
Good Job

Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for checking it out and giving me your impressions. So far you're the first. I'm glad I changed it to offer it in the UK. 
My son Joe did most of the graphics, which are better than anything I could do.  I think he was going for a sort of retro look. Although both of us can code fairly well, unfortunately neither one of us is an accomplished artist. I'm not even a good critic, I can't even envision what would make them look better (shinier, more 3d looking?). When we put a demo version out on itch.io a few months back, others commented on the graphics too so you're not alone.
Thanks again,
Phil

No problems at all mate.
It is really nice game and you both should be proud...
It's not that the graphics are bad, I can see hes gone for a retro/pixelish look...
I just think sharper more cartoonish graphics would really make it stand out as the gameplay is good.
Reminds me of The Incredible Machine years ago
I too have had problems with art but now have someone on board  for my next project thank God.

Keep up the great work
And I look forward to more from you both

Cheers
Mike
