    haha! Good one.
    Chicks'n'Vixens looks great. A few questions:
    How long did it take to develop?
    Are you planning on adding more levels?
    Was/is it just you working on it, or do you have a small team?

    I've just downloaded the NoDo version. Just wondering why you couldn't just update the last one?

    Yeah it was a (very) tough call, pushing the 'update' for the old version would require I delete previous saves on existing versions of the game...

    I will convert this update into a paid (ad-free) game as well as release another permanant ad supported version in the near future.

    Would love to see a paid version or at least make the current ads smaller (if that's even possible). It really gets in the way.

    I know I'm sorry :( I'll look into making it smaller. Just don't tell anyone because that breaks the terms of use of the ad service :p

    I have no idea what the terms are for ad supported games. But if its not possible to make them smaller, perhaps just place ads in screens other than actual game play. Like menus and level select. Im not trying to tell you how to push your paper. I understand devs gotta make a living. Just my suggestion.

    OK I've made the ad smaller and re-submitted it.

    I've also added an option so you can change between a trajectory display and arrow, you can modify it from the options screen.

    To be perfectly honest with you I hated the ads from the start and now I've found they're not paying me nearly well enough for me to give a damn what size they are. I've made the ads 30% smaller and they now live on the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

    Alright the update should now be on the market place :)

    I'm in the process of submitting the next update which will fix up some of the buttons responsiveness, tweak some levels which fell apart on their own before and add hats to the foes to wear (just as a nice little graphical effect).

    I'll try and add more levels for 0.12A and new gameplay elements.
