Out Now.. take a look
This looks like it might be good. It appears that each level occupies more than 1 screen and it scrolls horizontally? If so, how many screen widths is a typical level?
Does anything but the Atom Ball move?
Looks good, any video?
I'd like some video too!
I decided to TOFTT because I'm a sucker for ball rollers. All I can say is, stay the HELL away from this, at least right now. I don't know if it's just broken on the iPhone 4 or everywhere, but the frame rate is like 3-4FPS. That's not even an exaggeration. It's quite unplayable. There's some strange twisting 3D organic tunnel or something animating in the background that seems to be sucking all the life out of the game. It's probably nice and all but it's mostly obscured by the level most of the time, and it's likely what's trashing the frame rate. (I'm guessing this was developed in an older version of Unity, which I seem to recall had this problem on Retina devices.) Furthermore the sound effects are terrible. Way, way too loud and abrupt, like they were just cut roughly out of a longer sample. The door opening sound when you collect all of the "corroded antimatter capsules" (the round things that look like buttons from a burberry sports blazer) is taken straight from the hydraulic platform sound effect in Quake. Also, some of the tile graphics are corrupted or just plain wrong.
It looks like it has promise and could be an entertaining little game if it weren't for the wretched frame rate and the incredibly annoying, overly loud sound effects. Pity. Maybe someone with a previous generation device can test and see if the problem is limited to Retina devices.
Looks interesting, but graphics is really ugly!
