"The Rimward Migration" is a working title for my game, until I can think of something better. I was using the generator on Scifiideas.com to come up with cool names for aliens, spaceships etc but couldn't settle on one that I liked unfortunately. So the working title will stand for now, which is fine :-)

So the game is a basic stop/start game for mobiles. I got the idea of the simple game dynamic fro ma pixel-art game called "The Tapping Dead" in the Play store. It's simple, which for mobiles is excellent. I hate on-screen controls, they're just so difficult without any sort of tactile feedback.
So pressing and holding the screen haults the spaceship's progress. Unpressing resumes it's linear path. You have to pause to avoid colliding with the other spaceships.
The graphics are free, and were from Dan Cook's site here: http://www.lostgarden.com/2007/04/free-game-graphics-tyrian-ships-and.html
I know it's basic right now, but I have loads of changes planned. Right now he menu screen is a mess, it only has 2 levels, and the 2nd level looks pretty hideous with placeholder graphics.
The biggest thing I need to do is figure out how to make the gameplay smoother on mobile, as it's really slow on my Nexus 4, and I haven't quite figured out why.
