|Crabby Ball ( Click to enlarge )|
My game development dream has reborn thanks to Unreal Engine 4.
On December 3th, 2014 I re-subscribed to download 4.6 (before going free!), and decided to be serious this time in learning blueprint programming with UE4 editor. I tried before, but only watched some videos and sample demos. This time, after an intense week of tutorials and examples exploration, I decided to start my first simple 2D game for Android devices, experimenting with this gameplay:
Then with only 20 days of full work I could release a modest Beta version and even publish it to Google Play, here it is a game-play demo:
Crabby Ball is a simple 2D physics platformer in which you have to control the ball with little Crabby’s head, and the objective is to try to cross it over or trough a colorful sign. It currently has 12 levels.
Remember the game is still Work In Progress! But you can try the first 12 levels.
NOTE: This game will run well in similar devices to Samsumg Galaxy S2 and better. (See UE4 Andoird compatibility list here )
Thanks! Any comments or questions would be very appreciated!

If you want to begin with Unreal Engine the good starting point is Unreal Engine Youtube Channel, then download UE4 and start playing with it! (Literally speaking, beacuse you play your game inside the Editor)
