My games now work on Android (using touch controls if necessary), in addition to Windows and OSX. A .apk file for Android is available at both links.

Thanks I dig your Airtaxi, especially the level editor. Your game is very hard :)

In my game the level editing is done by just drawing a pixel mask in some paint program, the masks are in the source directory. The masks are loaded in addition to the background graphics, and are used to determine the meaning of each pixel. Currently, the colors of the pixels in the mask determine whether a pixel is a deadly wall, a fuel platform or a passenger platform. The idea is to use other colors in the pixel masks in the future for elevators and other gimmicks. Anybody with a paint program can in principle make new levels already. But I have no gimmicks yet (no elevators, no forcefields, no conveyor belts etc.)

Thanks, it's supposed to be hard and a bit more fast-paced then the original game :)

Yeah, sounds similar to the way the original game took (using bitmaps etc.) I'm still not sure which way I want to go for. I'd like to have simple line and slope collisions for the player but nothing fancy.
Good luck with your game, keep it coming :)

I added visible touch controls to Arne's SpaceTaxi, so both games work nicely on android phones now, with touch. Just download the .apk file.
