But since more levels can be easily added...

Yes, and you can also add your custom levels!!! Take a look at the readme.txt file in the sar directory.

I might try that.

Btw, bug: When in endless mode and you fail the retry-option will forward you to the corresponding campaign level instead of retrying endless mode. E.g.
Endless mode Level 1 --> Campaign level 1
Endless mode Level 2 --> Campaign level 2
Endless mode Level 0 --> Campaign level 0
...

This might also happen with bonus/custom levels, but I don't have any to try it with at the moment.

You might also have to consider whether to let people start from the very beginning in endless mode or to have them restart the current level with the same amount of moves left as they had when entering that level.

Bad news fo the first comment, give me some minute and i'll fix it.  ::sm-08.gif::

For the second point [let continue in endless mode] i don't think it's a good idea cause it feel like cheating.  ^-^

Agreed! It would definitely be possible to use it in a way which could be considered cheating.  ::sm-13.gif::

Will be downloading the new version.  >:D

Try to make some levels and upload them in a post, it's easy!

What you think about the final levels descriptions? Do you like them?  8)

I found them hilarious. ^-^

How about adding an icon to the game? I mean like, when you're in the homebrew launcher menu and select the homebrew. A lot of games has got a cool icon. You should too, if you know how to do it.

If not... you better read up on it  ~sm-41.gif~
If you want to... :x

That's a good point!

i was sending you a PM, but i'm going to write it here so anyone can help.

Does someone have a better text to cheange my in the help screen? I think that's a little tricky to understand.
Any idea?

I might try to formulate something but others are welcome too since I'm the lazy kinda guy who supports from the background by talking and taking no action...  ::sm-01::  ~sm-37.gif~

First off: When I finish a bonus/custom level (I did one. A lousy one. Will edit it soon) I'm returned to the list of levels in the campaign. That's slightly irritating.

Your goal is to reach the batteries, while avoiding active cells as they drain your power.
Your color indicate which cell color is active. Only the active cells are visible by color on the upper screen. By pressing L or R you can change the active color by using up a move.
Refer to the color map on the bottom screen to see the cells colors. Note that every 3 moves the colors cycle in the order indicated and changes place.
As you have limited moves choose your route with care.

About game modes: I guess that's fine as is.
Credits: fine too.

Regarding the images which appear in the beginning at the moment. Either preserve them at the beginning or maybe have the upper screen snapshot on the upper screen while this text is on:

and have the other one on screen with this text: (upper or lower screen. Would be logical to keep pictures at the same screen, but at the same time gameplay wise it would belong at the bottom screen. Both could work I guess)

I don't know if it's any better than yours. It's always better to have third party evaluate that, I guess.
