    Just a quick post to let everyone know I ported the controls of my LD game Vol to a touch interface and did an Android build. Do note though that the Android version isn’t guaranteed to run or run very well on your device. I have a HTC OneX and it performs okay, at least for the purposes that I created it for, which is mainly to test the control scheme on a touch device.

    You can download the .APK here.

    Vol on Ludum Dare


    Also here are some analytics because they’re fun.


    Average time (in seconds) spent on levels 1-7 and Session Time.

    Session Time is time spent from starting a new game to game over, and the average is 388 seconds or 6 minutes 28 seconds. Not bad! I wish I was tracking analytics on my last LD game, had reports of over an hour before finishing.

    More diverse than I expected!

    More stats!

    • The number of unique players in the last week is 166.
    • 52% of players have 4GB of RAM
    • Average RAM is 5041MB
    • Windows 88% and Mac 12%
    • 48% of players have 1GB VRAM
    • Average VRAM is 925MB

    Anyway, analytics are fun. You should use them in the next LD.
