  1. very much creative sir it is verymuch helpfulll……….. but i have some issue that it has good quality video but it is very dificult to see text u were typing in coding if it was clear in 480P so more helpful 🙂 Thanku very Much

  2. You stated in the end around the 12 minutes in, " getting big money". How can you do this if the game is free to download?

  3. I have encountered an error that occurs when I mgs.what = 1 [DEATH]. The sound that I call starts on a loop for aproximately 7times. Also my msg.what = 0 [LOST] sound does not execute. The code is identical and resources are working. Is this a common issue?

  4. I have downloaded his game on my Nexus 6 but my screen had a to high resolution that the "Start Game" text is bigger than the button
