In this daily blog (and video)-series I take a first impressions look at the best mobile games that I come by. Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below!

FootRock 2 is either horrible or actually kinda genius. Or maybe the game is actually both. Think Goat Simulator crazy. 

The game has you run from one end to the other of an American Football field filled with giant wheels, enormous playing cards, dangerous circular saw blades and other obstacles. Your goal is to navigate your way through the map, while shooting everything that stands in your way with an American football that occasionally will turn into a teleport ball or bazooka ball. 

Yes, I know, straight out crazy. And the monetization has you sit through skippable video ads (although very rarely), but I still couldn't help but laugh out loud as I played this game.   

My thoughts on FootRock 2:

      Royalty Free Music for Game Developers
      If you found this page, you probably wondered at some point, "Why is it called Royalty Free Music when none of it is FREE?!" and maybe you already learned the definition of Royalty Free does not necessarily mean the content itself is free but rather refers to the "right to use copyrighted material without the need to pay license fees or usage fees."
      To put it simply, Royalty Free just means you don't have to pay to use the content. So why do so many people charge for it, and isn't that exactly the opposite of what Royalty Free means? Obviously artists and content makers who spend a lot of effort making something should be rewarded for their time, but in my opinion, they should not use the term "Royalty Free" to refer to their paid content.
      That is why I developed a FREE Royalty Free Music for YouTube Library for anyone and everyone who is looking for free professional music to use in their films, television shows, youtube promos, video games, you get the picture.
      How to Download
      To begin, simply choose a category of music from the list on the website linked above:

      Once you have selected your desired category of music, hover your mouse or finger over it and click the red button that appears to open up a small window with a media player in it that will look something like this:

      Click a song to listen to it, and click the down arrow to download the song, it's that easy!
      Licensing & Copyright Information
      If you like the song and you want to use it in a non-commercial project (something that does not earn you money) you can do that for free simply by attributing me in your credits somewhere! Just put "Music by Jordan Winslow on https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic" or simply "Music Downloaded from https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic"
      If you would like to use the music in a commercial project (something that earns you money) there is still no charge, but one more step: simply fill out the Royalty Free Music Commercial License Request Form.
      Downloading Free Royalty Free Music for your YouTube creations has never been so easy!

      I've created a HTML5 2D canvas game and I'm now ready to take the step and convert it to a native Android (and iOS) app. The game works perfectly fine in any desktop or mobile browser. Animations are fast and smooth.
      After some research, I decided Cordova was the way to go to create native apps for Android and iOS. My first priority is Android, simply because I have an Android phone myself and I don't have a Mac (which apparently is required to build iOS apps).
      I have looked at Cocoon.io and although that might be an even better option than Cordova (since it's actually build on top of Cordova), the thing that made me run from it is the fact that it costs $500 just to remove the "build with Cocoon" splash screen...
      After installing all prerequisites (cordova, Android Studio, nodes.js) building my first APK was easy.
      When I ran my game in the Android emulator, the game was abysmally slow... Testing it on my device yielded the same slow results. After searching the internet, I figured it was because on some devices, an old and slow WebView is used by native apps to display HTML5 content. Still strange since my phone uses Android 7.0.0 and the emulator uses Android 8.0.0...
      I quickly found FastCanvas, a PhoneGap/Cordova plugin that adds a very fast canvas "compatible" rendering surface. But it was last updated in 2013 and after trying to get it to work for almost 16 hours straight, I came to the conclusion there's no way to get this to work with the current version of Cordova.
      I then found CrossWalk-WebView. This too was pretty old and a pain to get it to work with the current version of Cordova. And when I did get it to work, I quickly found out it created a few new problems making my game unplayable (noticeably a strange lag when touching the screen. Not the famous 300ms input lag, but after touching the screen, the entire game would freeze for 200ms-300ms). So I had to give up on Crosswalk as well.
      So now I am at a loss. Can anyone offer me suggestions on how to speed up canvas rendering in Cordova? It's pretty darn frustrating that my HTML5 game is finished and I'm ready for publication, only to find out that's not as easy everyone says it is...
      (BTW, I've posted the same question on a few other forums to reach as many game developers as possible.)

      Hi, I want to present my game called "Stick Bunny" – arrcade game in which you have to help Bunny to go from one platform to another.   Download from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.threemgames.stickbunny   Youtube video gameplay:             Funny Bunny wants to go from one platform to another. Use stick and help Bunny. Stick can increase the length. Be careful, if the stick is too long Bunny will be knocked and if it is too short Bunny will fall down.   Try to go as far as you can.   Collect carrots and exchane them for new characters of Bunny. Tap the screen to change size of the stick.   Are you ready to reach 100 platforms or mayby you want to go even farther?   So tap the screen, join platforms with sticks, and collect carrots.   It is FREE!   I am waiting for your comments.   Please, give me feedback. If you notice any bugs please tell me.   Thanks !
