    I've been working on Jump To Moon, a game with a similar gameplay to the popular iPhone game Doodle Jump.
    Your lil' cosmonaut jumps from platforms to platform while you tilt the Caanoo to give him a general direction.

    The goal is the reach the moon...

    Few WIP screen shots:

    Final release coming soon :)

    This looks very awesome! Is it the first homebrew to use the accelerometer?

    I hope i will get my caanoo back from GPH before :)

    Hey kouky, i haven't played the game yet so i don't know what you already had implemented, but i do own an android phone, there's a game on there named "abduction" see you tube video here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R75mle0uFeg

    It might give you a few idea's to add to your game, from my head these are things they added :

    - bomb packages dropping from the sky which you can't thouch (you can use a variation on this for your theme like comets or something)
    - Breakable platforms, like platforms you can only touch once or two / three times ...
    - super jumps or something along those lines, like take a certain item and you can then jump higher or further
    - Collecting items like each level has a star on a difficult place to capture and you need to collect those for some purpose (unlock new levels ???)
    - the android game also let you buy certain items to "dress" your character (in the android game you have a cow and you can "dress" it with diffrent kind of hats etc) (= unlockables)
    - i'm sure you could invent many other things when it comes to power ups that either affect you in a positive way or negative way...

    but as i said i don't know what is implemented already :)

    You could always put up an alpha/beta demo and field the community for ideas!

    Thank you for the input Joyrider,

    I will add falling meteors!

    Other suggestions such as special platform & speed bonus are already in.

    Hey, just finally played your game! I had a load of fun!
    Very good design overall ... is the the first portrait homebrew game?

    I would love to see this game taken further with power ups and mechanics that build on what you have created.

    I suppose that you want know "where you can download the game"...
    here: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/caanoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,35,628
    or inside the App Store of official GPH website ( http://www.fungp.com )... ;)

    Hi,
    nice game you've made. It's a real time killer...
    Last time I saw a game similar to Doodle Jump, but instead of jumping to the top you have to fall down, but if you get too fast you'll die.
    Maybe you can do a game like that. "Fall to the Earth" or so. :)

    This looks also nice.
    What I mean is a game looking similar to Doodle Jump, with the difference that you jump down.
    And if you have time and like the idea, I would like to see a game (from you) with similar graphics to this game (Jump to the Moon) and the same game idea like in the game mentioned above. I think this would be a nice alternative. And the brown red color scheme seems also to fit good. ;)
