    Hi Everyone :)

    We have released LoveCatch, our cute game for Android where you have to draw numbers on the touch screen in order to collect flying hearts of the same colors in a raw, the game is built using NDK ( native development kit) for best performances.

    * Amazing vivid graphic and High Quality & Stunning Visual Effects.
    * Up to 40 levels with progressive difficulty.
    * Bonus stages.
    * Hit-bonus scheme.
    * Single Play or Couple Mode play for "Love Test".
    * State of the art Gesture recognition.

    . This game will not run properly if the APK is found or located in your sdcard (wont work with rooted phone with the app-private linked to sdcard for example) but will just use 600KB from your main phone memory.

    Thank you .

    We spent hard time developing and optimizing LoveCatch for the android platform in order to provide the best performances and gameplay using the NDK 1.6 and show that Android can do as good as....Iphone in that matters.

    This game is a "real native code" game experience and a polished title including animation, animated background, realtime pattern recognition, 16 channels sound effect and stereo music (why choose between music ,sound effect or frame rate when you can have all using native code :p )

    LoveCatch may look "cute and childish" from the screenshot at the first glance but the gameplay is very addictive and really fun to play for everybody, this is not just a "touch" game but a combination of drawing numbers (0-9) on the screen and touch to collect items or change colors of hearts or reveals them, etc..., the game also features a realtime worldwide leaderboard where you see how is your ranking going along as you are playing.

    The game is listed at 350 yen which should be around $3.50 to $3.88 at the today's rate.... with the Google's refund policiy you have no risk to give it a try :) game should install smoothly if your device fill the listed requirement.

    Wow game looks interesting. I think I'll go look for it in the market. Will it work for the Droid? I like the way you guys only put some of the game on the internal while the rest is downloaded on the SD card. I don't know why more game developers don't try this method instead of just giving us half ass games and blaming it on memory. Now all we need us a good action/platform game like this.

    Thank you :)

    Yes the game is working very well on Motorola Droid and Milestone, in fact, we have 3 game packages, one for the Qualcom chipset, one for the PowerVR chipset (like on the Droid) and a neutral one. The game decides which package to download/install based on your device in order to give the user the best experience (GPU optimization side). At the end, LoveCatch is "just" using 600KB from your "precious" internal memory while deploying the 22MB needed on the sdcard. This solution came naturally to us. While i cannot answer for the other game developers, from our side, we will stick to it until the regular "APK" package will allow a direct install of the asset folder to sdcard :p

    I just downloaded this game from the market. Yes this game is fun! This is definatly a must buy for anybody looking for a decent game to play on The Droid without having to use those emulators. Very fun. I hope this developer makes more games that are this fun for the market. You gotta try this out guys.

Finally someone that knows how to make quality product for the android platform. You guys need to teach these other Developers. Anyway I'll be looking forward to this games release. Love Catch is really fun and still great.

    Then Thank you very much for your support, we, developer, need support from you. I think Android platform is going to "rock&roll" in 2010, clearly the combination of Android OS + GPU support (available on the newest phone) is opening an exciting new era :)

    Unfortunately no, the reason is quite simple, LoveCatch is built upon the native NDK 1.6 in order to give the best OpenGL, sound and speed experience to the user (the game is not a Java game), this NDK is not supported for Android OS prior 1.6 . In our youtube video, i am showing LoveCatch running very smoothly on a first generation G1, but this G1 was upgraded to 1.6.
