Game idea for kids.. need help!

Postby stianjaco » Thu Apr 14, 2011 12:27 pm

Hi!
I have a 4 year old son who loves playing with my phone.. The problem is that is so few games that are simple enough to keep him bussy for a while. He is allways asking for help or getting bored. (This is problem when we are driving, can't help then..)

So, There's this TV-show (Disney) for kids, called "Phineas and Ferb"
In this show, Phineas and Ferb got a pet-platypus, who is a secret agent.
My game idea is a simple "run&jump" game. Where the only control is to press the screen to jump.
The plot:
"Help Agent P (Perry) to find Dr. Doofenshmirtz and stop his evil plan to steal and destroy all the garden gnomes in the world"
Perry will be on a skateboard, jumping over boxes, machines, diches etc. while collecting stars. (This earns you points). When each level ends, you'll see Doofenshmirtz leave/escapes (Video of some sort) and the next level begins.

I my self is no java-programmer. So, if anyone wants to help me create this game, all i can do is graphics and level design.. Anyways, I hope there is someone who can help me..

Whoa there, partner. This is *ANDROID*

...but ya, if you are making it just for your kid that is one thing, but I'd be wary about putting work into a title that has no commercial future unless it's a labor of love.
