Why $1? It's a free game.

I need to pay for the server. Every day is downloaded several GB. It is very expensive.

Why sources not on github?

I was planning to go on github soon. So I'll update the source code after each change.

It costs $15 to get a developer account on Google Play, so a charge could be justifoed to cover that - but it isn't that much money.

Reg on Google Play Dev = $25.
And I pay for the server (download cache). 10GB = $1.

It does not matter. I can make money on this, the main thing that I published the source code and does not violate the license.
Is there a problem?

Not at all. Go ahead.

The only objections I have is when:
1) GPL is not followed (code is not given)
2) It is not clear that to the user that it is a paid version of a free game. (Your description makes this clear. Also, Minetest doesn't have an offical app on the store, so it's fine)

You do well in both of these.

I hate Google Translate ... If the description is something wrong, correct me.
Besides, I always intend to publish the source code. I will be glad if my achievements will be used in future versions. Besides, I plan to open a second branch of the code and suggest improvements unpacker code without using a server (with unpacking assets).

Not bad for a Android port. However, i have to appoint some details:
*NVIDIA Shield, OUYA, M.O.J.O. and Gamepad users: DO NOT DOWNLOAD/BUY IT. It doesn't have a gamepad support and i don't recommend to use gamepad mappers, which will be hard to write texts on the gamepad.
*Keyboard is compatible, which is a very positive point, HOWEVER, it DOESN'T has full suport. You can't use specific characters, like question mark or tilde. In this case, i don't recommend to play it on Multiplayer.
*You can use a mouse, but it will work like you were actually touching on the screen instead of a full mouse function (as seen on QI4A)
*it runs fine on Tegra devices.

I hope to see at least the gamepad support.

Otherwise, nice job.

What about donating the 10% of the money you win with this (to Minetest of course)? So you can support the comunity and win some money with this.

I would like to donate even more. But I want to sacrifice the whole team Minetest, not just celeron55
