So, apparently the game didn't work on phones with different screen sizes...

We fixed that!

It also works on Tablets now!

Download Off-Switch V0.1

  1. Download Offswitch.apk
  2. Email the file to whichever email you have linked to your phone
  3. Open the email on your phone, click install (May have to confirm that you want to allow untrusted apps)
  4. Enjoy!

Feel free to post any suggestions/critiques/bug reports either as comments on this post or emailed to (Art/level design) or (programming/bugs).

Known Issues

  • Standing inside/slightly under the thin platforms
  • Light gates misbehave a bit when turned off and back on
  • Shadow's head may pass through blocks when hit from the side

1. Q: Why won't this run on my device? 
    A: If it doesn't install at all, it's possible that your phone is running on an older version of Android. To make multitouch work correctly, the app supports Android 2.2 and later. 

2. Q: Why can't I save my game?
    A: Saved games aren't in yet.. However, if you hit your phones menu button, there's a skip level button to help you get back to where you left off. No cheating!

3. Q: Can I play on my PC?
    A: Unfortunately, no. The only way to run android apps on a PC is with the AVD Emulator, which is build into the SDK and more for debugging than anything. It lags TERRIBLY.

4. Q: Are you going to make an iPhone version?
    A: Short answer: No. Long answer.. The Android API is built on java, and the iOS API uses Objective C. This means essentially rewriting all of my code. On top of that, my understanding is that Apple charges a 100 dollar developer license fee to write apps, along with requiring the programmer to have an iMac and an iOS device for testing. Finally, apps can't be installed on phones unless approved by Apple, so I wouldn't be able to send you a development version anyways!
