My 12 year old made a simple game. I'm proud of him for finishing a game finally and putting himself out there by uploading it. Some of his unfinished games have simple but good game mechanics, so hopefully he keeps it up

@cangelodawg - I am amazed your 12 year old made this let alone interested in programming games. The game has potential, I recommended he keep it up while he is young and someday he will be a fine professional.

Thanks for the kind words...I'll pass them along...or feel free to put them in the comments section for his game. I can tell you that he checks the comments and it will motivate and encourage him...he was excited last night to tell me that it had been played over 100 times and what countries players were from who tried it :)

This is actually very good! Simple and intuitive and extremely playable. With a bit of polish I could see this on the app store no problem! Kid's got talent :D

Thank you all...my son loves all of the additional plays and comments. He added a high score leader board (which my 6 year old is first as guest). I think my 12 year old is hooked on game development now

@cangelodawg

with some graphical polish, this could easily be a mobile app game.

and tell your six year old, "there's a new sheriff in town...lol."
