    Hello there!
    Today I saw a new game in the store, Apocalypse, anyone tried it yet? The description and pictures in the app-store don´t really convey what the game is about or what it plays like. Like an example to developers how not to present your game:)

    Well, I saw a video of it, and it looks like a great game! As far as I know, you control the little thing looking like a ball on wheels, and you tilt the ipod/phone left and right to turn that way, you tilt it forward to accelerate, and you are supposed to collect orb things or cubes or something lol. I'll buy it and tell you what I think of it.

    What's this for a game? At first, it looked like a nice adventure or RPG, but after not only looking the the image in the Mobile AppStore, but also the ones in iTunes AppStore, I'm really not sure what type of game this is... :( And the homepage of the developer is broken, most of the links don't work, the game does not seem to exist on their homepage.

    Devs, please do your homework. Give us a nice accurate description on the game and a working homepage with a gameplay video.
     
  6. Where did you see the video? Can you post a link please?

    I saw the video last night. I couldn't see the screen well and thought it was a panda on a sled. I think it's an eyeball now, though.

    I tried playing it and it was sad.

    I got through the story which takes awhile because you can't skip it at all.

    After the story they give you the basic directions on how to move Go Go....

    But nothing I did moved him. So I would get hit by a falling monster and had to go through the story again! =(

    Stupid me bought the game:( Broken sound that cracks up and broken controls making the little Go Go thingy twirl around like a maniac. Can´t recommend this to anyone and I want my money back. 3d graphics, where?

    I just noticed that myself :(
     
  14. Sounds like one to avoid then people (thanks to those who posted on the gameplay). I am curious as to why it isn't compatible with the 1st gen Touch though.

    And now the price is down by half. Still not worth 99 cents as this game is BROKEN. Avoid!

    Gameplay

    I am confused about your coments on the gameplay, the controls are very simple.

    tilt left: rotate go go left

    tilt right: rotate go go right

    tilt top of phone toward you 45 degree: accelorate

    hold flat: brake

    you can see game play videos at www.youtube.com/leuvsion

    Sound

    sound should be crystal clear for music and voice, what ipod / iphone are you using? are you using speakers / headphones?

    Story
    The game has 10 chapters / levels,
    The 'story' you played through was the intro to chapter 1 / tutorial.

    I will work on a better tutorial mode it is obviously need my apolagies guys.

    Background
    This game was made as part of a 30 day challenge, you can view it here:
    www.youtube.com/leuvsion



    I will be update this game will new features and content, feel free to make suggestion I always take on board what people suggest.

    Remember that this guy made it in only 30 days, so it's bound to not be perfect. I'm sure with a little more time, it'll get better.

    Lack of time is not my problem. If it's in the store it must be a finished and working software. Period.
     
  20. I've been thinking about this for a while and agree with you. A developer shouldn't play games with people's money. He gave himself a time limit to get the app done. What if it was even less complete than it is now- would he still have submitted it?
