Stellar Alien is about a young heroic alien named “Starbli” as he travels through the galaxy saving stars from an evil alien named “Rosso”.
The game was written in HTML5 which Android does not natively support. Polhill selected Ludei’s cloud compiler Cocoon to compile the mobile version of Stellar Alien to allow the game to launch on mobile devices like Android as a native application.
The teen game developer also made a custom level creator he could use to produce and update the Stellar Alien game levels quicker for players. Polhill hopes to encourage other young game developers to embrace and support the independent game development industry. “This was fun for me and I think it could be even more fun with more people my age sharing with each other and learning from each other.”
