Nice. I actually tried the umbrella idea but didn't stick with it. But let me try out a few ideas and see what I'll find for a future update
For the controls I see what you mean with being able to touch anywhere on the left and right side. I'll try fo fix that as well. The game was actually controlled with the tilt function at the beginning but I changed it because I wanted more precise controls and to be honest I hate to play games based on the tilt function So hard to play when you're laying down.
I will update the first post here tomorrow with some info about the making of this game. I used a very straight forward workflow and I actually made this and got it up and running on the market in only like 4-5 hours.
I'm not crazy about tilt control myself.. but some people are I guess.
4-5 hours sounds really short! Including artwork?
I got a game pretty much going yesterday, including artwork, in about 5 hours but then lost the whole thing in a crash
