    if i understand your question correctly, minimum api level is set at "android 4.1 jelly bean" in my unity editor.
    for this game i've only tested on my phone so far which is android 6.0 and it runs fine.

    Looks like fun game! The point is to just beat the guys in line with various combos? I assume they will eventually fight back? :D

    yes! they won't just fight back they'll kill you :) if you press the wrong button or wait too long they will attack. i just don't have the animations and code for those yet. also more characters and attacks are coming :)

    I feel your dev pain. I am working a very simple "Rollaball" style game (yes it is the first game your taught in the beginners section) but with added meat and extra features which turn it into something enjoyable and not just "another rollaball game". Its out for alpha testing with a few people at the moment. It is not even 50% finished yet.

    Your game is solid and I am curious - what did you use for the art style/creation and the 3d models and animation?

    ↑ I guess you can call it pain but i very much enjoy the process :)
    originally i wanted to create everything. i used blender to make 3d models and only used shaders because i can't draw textures. the rest is programming which i can do as well.
    recently i bought some assets from the asset store because creating everything myself just took too much time. so right now a lot of props, environments and characters are from the asset store. ive modified the texture colors using mspaint trying to sort of make everything fit together.


    ↑ thank you! :)

    Wow, this looks better everytime I come back to check in! cracking job. I don;t want to even ask how long its taken to develop.

    My simple game is also shaping up but not out of Alpha test yet. Yielded some great feedback though.

    Good luck with your project, looking forward to a release! Keep going!

    Looking better and better! How does this perform on different mobile devices? It looks like quite a lot of polys on screen.

    yes in fact i've tried really hard to optimize this recently. on my lg g4 it runs at 60 fps no prob even with realtime shadows. i think the phone is well over 2 years old since release & it's not particularly well speced so most phones should be able to handle it.

    Visuals are very nice and I really like the shader changes you've made.

    So would this be considered a 'clicker' game? Or does the player actually have to have some type of skill to progress?

    From what has been shown so far it appears this might be fun for about 5 minutes at which time it would start to feel quite redundant and repetitive, like most clicker games.
    Maybe you can explain how this is not correct, and detail a little more about the game/progression and mechanics/story, if it is not just a pretty clicker game. ;)

    Ive designed this to be as simple as possible with some twists. There will be other mechanics other than simple clicks like special enemies and bosses, but the core gameplay will remain simple. Next game i will have a bigger scope. For this minimum :)
