Galaxy Bowl is my first real game for Android (I created a Sudoku game called Endless Sudoku in the early days and it flopped. Actually, now that I think of it, my more recent Sudoku game, Starlight Sudoku, also flopped. I’m staying away from Sudoku from now on!) It’s also the first game I’ve created entirely in 3D.
It’s a bowling game with a space theme. You can unlock bowling balls that look like the planets (complete with bump and specular maps for the nerd-dev-bowlers out there), and earn interstellar achievements like “Pale Blue Dot”.
Galaxy Bowl really came out of nowhere. I usually pick something fun to work on to learn a new development paradigm, but this is the first time my “Hello World” program became a product!
