Demonstration of the game plays as a client on Android and as a server on windows.

After some issues that led me to believe that it was impossible to have a two ways UDP communication on Android(how silly of me), I finally was able to make a multiplayer game between my Android phone and my PC.


I am working torward an Alpha so people will be able to play against each other, it should be fun. :)
I didn't make a terribley a lot of progress lately, so I don't have that much to show. If anyone needs help with doing UDP communication on Android and if there is intereset I might be able to help from my experience. Just tell me if you are interested.

That's it for now.

great advance.. the android interface seems to be a bit hard to handle - not really an issue for me as pc user.
I hope there will be an alpha soon so i can give feedback to help the development get forward :D

Thanks both of you.
loozzer, the controls for Android were only temporery.
I am going to focus on a playable alpha version for the PC. I don't want to keep you waiting for too long. :)
What takes me the most time are the animations and sprites, most of the gameplay is already coded. But I am making progress with the animations as well.
Thank you for the support.
