    I've just published my first application, the "Life on Steroids". It's a life-simulation game.

    Develop your character, upgrade skills, buy items, manage your education, job and don't hesitate to use the safe box because robbers are everywhere!
    You start as a young person with big ambitions. But first, you have to take care of the primary needs - Food, health, energy and happiness.
    There are intriguing career paths to be discovered, each involving special engagement.
    If you are in a trouble, you can always turn to the dark side. But beware of consequences!!!

    NOTE: This app is still in development, stay tuned for new updates!
    NOTE2: Night mode for black-lovers has been released!

    Feedback and suggestions are very appreciated

    NOTE: I'm just starting out my journey with mobile development.

    Hi, two things.

    1. We have a procedure for developers to announce their apps. Read this thread for instructions.
      Developer Announcement Procedure
      1. Install the forum app
      2. Sign in to the forum using the app
      3. Goto the forums tab
      4. Select "My Apps & Games"
      5. Select your app from the list
      6. Tap the green icon in the bottom right to start a new thread
      7. Add a thread title / content and hit the post button (right pointing arrow in the top right of the screen)
      8. Once this is done you can use your PC to create or modify threads in your channel
      Once you create the channel using the app I will move your thread and move it to the channel.
    2. I think you may run into copyright problems with the title "Game of Life" and the description of the game. It sounds like your game may be ok from a theme, gameplay standpoint, but I'm no lawyer. My gut tells me the combination of the title "Game of Life" and the how you described the game could get you into hot water with Google developer stuffs.

    Well, first of all thank you very much for the reply and the honest opinion.
    Instead of reading the rules I have just got wrongly inspired by others. My mistake, I will fix it ASAP.
    Secondly, I'm focused mostly about coding a robust and well-designed app. I didn't take much time to write a description - but I will definitely improve it as you suggested.
    I'm just wondering what may be wrong with the title? Do you think really someone migh connect it with Conway's Game of Life?
    Regards,
    HowkyBrother

    Maybe not the Conway one, but someone might connect it with the Hasbro one.

    You might want to change the name before you get a copyright lawsuit.

    Thank you guys for the rename suggestion.
    The whole app has been refactored!
    This time, I double-checked for any possible similar trademarks :rob:

    EDIT. Is it possible to change name on forum app listing?

    Steroids suck.

    Why?
    You mean the app name or just the word?

    As the Wiktionary.org suggest, 'on steroids' means 'to a greater degree'. What's wrong with that?

    The word Steroids.
    They don't help reproduction.
    Side effects.

    Oh yeah, I'm well aware of that. My best friend had to take those and as a result, his face become very.. deformed.
    But they also have a huge amount of advantages :)
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to your feedback about the app itself 😁😇
    Right now I plan to introduce the public high score ranking system. What do you think about that?

    Follow the same steps with the app downloaded from the new package name to create a channel with the new app name. I'll move the relevant info from this thread to the new channel or just delete this if it no longer makes sense.

    How about "type of risk?"
