    Buster Boy is out! Info from appshopper.com

    [​IMG]

    FINALLY!
    FOR THE IPHONE!

    Buster Boy is based on the arcade classic "Buster Bros." (known as "Pang" in Asia and parts of Europe), a hugely popular game played around the world!

    You control Buster Boy, a little kid with a big problem: there are gigantic, bouncing balls all over downtown Tokyo!

    Shoot the balls to split them in two, until they are small enough to disappear. The action is fast and furious, and extremely addictive.

    The game features smooth animation, cool effects, and great music and sound.

    Note: The first update will have a global high-score list.

    Restart your iPhone/iPod Touch for best performance

    Remember: It's a old school, retro arcade game ;)

    Which is exactly why I think Devs should stop putting them up in threads. I know it's their choice and that they put them up for people on here in exchange for an honest review on iTunes, but those stupid, greedy lurkers decend on them like a pack of hungry wolves and they're all gone before any honest, dedicated TA's get the chance to download and leave a review.

    Personally, I'm from the UK so I'm s**t outta luck either way when it comes to Promo Codes, but I think it's almost decending into a farce these days! I mean seriously, look at it... six codes and not one "Thank You" or review from the people who have taken them. And lets face it, a game like this wont take too long to form an opinion/review of.

    The best ways to give out promos are having members PM them or doing a Trivia Contest

    Ok well I didn't get a promo code but I just had to get this game. I loved the old arcade version, used to play it all the time. And this is only $.99!

    Ok so first thing I noticed, the volume doesn't respect the silent on/off switch.
    I like if My phone is on silent, the games should be too until I wanna hear it. Like if I'm in class, can't open it because of the noise.

    Ok so the game is controlled by tilt controls to move left and right which works fine for this game. Which limits this game to where I can play it though. It'd be cool if holding the bottom right half of the screen was "move right" and holding the bottom left half of the screen was "move left" while keeping the whole top half of the screen "shoot" like it is now. But currently touching the top half of the screen shoots and the bottom half does nothing. So this would be a really could feature to add in please :D. Leave it in the options so we can switch to which controls we would like to use.
    If not, at least make the whole screen a shoot button not just the top half.

    Ok for gameplay, you get health. If you get hit by a ball, you don't die, you lose percentage. This makes the game easier, but makes it less frustrating for users as well.

    So far I have received a couple items. X2, Health, and a 3 ball shooter.
    And there is also a time bonus for finishing a level fast.

    Overall this is a good game to get at $.99. Well made and smooth gameplay. I am not disappointed at all, and can see myself playing this a lot more in the future. Just better controls so far is my only suggestion. I'll keep them coming.

    It's not weird. But yes it's like bubble trouble, except you have health and one hit by a ball doesn't kill you. I'm sure there are other differences as well...

    No pause button?! :eek::eek: aww

    Also, here's another thought, 2 player local wifi mode, where the other player is on the screen helping you out. And each iDevice can only control that one player obviously. This would be sooo cool! :cool::D

    Zincous, thanks for your feedback. The silence glitch is unfortunate, that'll be fixed soon.

    As for input: a lot of thought went into that and I'm pretty sure this is just about the best solution; but if enough people want another option I'll consider it.

    As for pausing: just press the lock button!

    i was just able to download the game after being out all day. and i must say it is a very fun game to play. i some what remember playing a game like this when i was a kid so it gives me a good feeling when i play it.

    down to the game,
    i think it is constructed very well and the controls handle extremely good. my only downfall, and this might just be because im not so good at it, the game seems extremely hard to me. again this may just be me. but other then that. this game has everything you could ask for! its truly a good title! if you have any questions about it, ill be happy to answer them
