    Our new game Buster Boy is nearing completion. It'll be available sometime this month. It's inspired by the classic arcade game "Buster Bros.", but way slicker :)

    Welcome:)
    its great to have another dev on the forums
    the game looks like it could be fun, and i really like the backgrounds.

    one thing though...the graphics on the ball popper thing look out of place amidst the much nicer graphics for the character, balls, and background

    It's funny, when I made the screenshot I also felt it looked a bit uninspired. But now that I know others think that, I think I'll update it :)

    The first version will be fully-featured and a "complete" game, but feature requests and feedback from gamers will definitely shape future development. I want to release the essential game before I spend a lot of time on extra level development, adding obstacles, etc.

    If a ball falls on you, do you die?

    It takes away from your health/life percentage. The bigger the ball, the bigger the hurt!

    Buster Bros. came out in 1989 so I guess there are a lot of younger gamers today who are unfamiliar with it. Although in the original game, one ball contact would kill you! (Buster Boy has more bouncing balls though)

    This month.

    Touch directional controls would obscure too much of the screen. The accelerometer controls are fine for almost any playing position, as long as you aren't on your side.

    IMO, that should be the name of the player character. That dude is a tub of lard.

    Looks great. I'm all for that $.99 for a short time then raising the price. That always sucks me in, cause I know if I'm ever going to buy it, I better get it now, before the price goes up.
