Is there a way to add more gifts and bombs into the game? Thank you.

yes, definitely. It is explained in the tutorial.

Thank you for answering my last question. I was just wondering what dpi for the images would you suggest for the app? Is 72 dpi alright for the gifts, bomb, etc?

I suggest you keep the same resolution. When it comes to images, the smaller dpi the better for speed. So, a good strategy would be to try a small dpi and then use a larger one if it doesn’t look good.

Hello, pls kindly guide me how to add custom background to the app? Thanks.

How about custom image background?

What should I do with this? I have new music, but show error //initialise music and sound fx activity.setVolumeControlStream(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC); sp = new SoundPool(5, AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC, 0);

Hi, I’m afraid custom images can’t be added without customization of the app. The error maybe because you have a long music file or a sound file that is too small. If you haven’t solved it yet feel free to send me the error log.

I want to buy But there is a problem When you play I was surprised to get out of the game without the pressure bomb

Brother, now I want to purchase Is the issue is resolved

Hi, The game is over only when the player hits the pressure bomb. I tried it again just now. There might be a bug which I’m not seeing. Is the game exiting to the ‘gameover’ menu or the main menu?


When I import the Eclipse to Android SDK,I changed the version to the latest version of Android SDK.I encounter an error where it said “error:package.com.google.android.gms.appstate does not exist.”

Thanks for the help.

Hi, The problem is occurring because the code uses an older version of google play services. In your build.gradle file try and change:
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:7.8.0'
to an older version like:
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:4.8.x'
