    Hi Everyone,

    Since we decided to push Car Jack back a month to ensure it really meets everyones expectations we've been thinking about a few additional features to add to the game. As usual we don't have time to add them all so we thought it would be fun to let YOU the Toucharcade forum users decide!

    Listed above are 5 options to choose from so take your pick...

    In addition if you have a really excellent idea for a mission/weapon/power-up/vehicle etc then PM me with you idea before the end of the weekend. If they are good enough we'll pick the three best ones, include them in the game and give you a free promo code! Winners will of course be announced on here for extra bragging rights ;-)

    Have fun!

    Paul

    Seems like you should try to incorporate two of the above features:

    1. Achievements: progress is good for the ego

    2. Day and Night effects: this cosmetic touch really separates the game from the masses wrt polish.

    Poll up now - took a few minutes to figure out!

    Vote away... and yes if you have thoughts about price point would be good to hear your thoughts too.

    Cheers

    I think achievements add a lot to the replayability of a game.

    I agree with this, definately

    I would also suggest staying well away from Godzilla, sump suits, monsters, anything like this. I think you want it to be a cool "mature" game IMO

    I love night and day effects really adds to the whole environment of a game... I have an idea for a weapon if you haven't already... RPG? I love em and I think it needs to have that in there if not already. Also you have to include an
    ice cream truck mission of some sort...

    Day and night lighting effects would be cool, but achievements give me more to do.

    I should point out that there shouldn't be any issues with replayability as the game is designed to last MONTHS! The idea is that you play for 20 mins or so a day and the game time is the same as real time, so when it says you have to make $50,000 that week it really means that actual week.

    (If you want to sit and play for hours thats cool - you can - but the best way to play is a little at a time.)

    There are two sets of mission types -

    "Always available" - there are 15 of these and you can do them as much as you like. Deliver pizzas, drive taxis, steal cars etc They don't pay much but hey, thats life!

    "Daily missions" - the game has an almost infinite number of missions available that are generated from over 60 mission templates. 5 or 6 of these daily missions are available each day and these are the real meaty ones like robbing banks etc

    Hope that wets your appetite for the game and provides some context for your ideas!

    Thanks
    Paul

    I'm stuck between day/night effects and achievements...

    However, you indicated that the game is in real-time. Since most of my play time is at night, I'm worried that it will always be night time, though I guess that adds an element of reality.

    Oh, which to pick....
    Achievements and element of replayability as mentioned above...
    Day/Night effect and element of reality....

    I'm conflicted...can't we just have both? Is that too greedy? :)

    are land mines in the game ? land mines are great especially if you place them in some place as a precautionary measure just in case you start getting chased by cops or something. just place them close by before a mission and make some sort of path for you to drive safely by them. you can even have claymores that you can put on walls with the option of detonating remotely. it would probably be good to place them in an alleyway so no pedestrians walk on them.

    Anyway to deposit cash at a bank and earn interest as time progresses? Also is there going to be a "hideout" or home where you can store your stuff?

    Why not go all GTA on us and let us navigate around the city via non road forms of transportation. For example, using a train to get the other areas of the city quicker, boats etc to cruise around the island and, even better, arial transportation. Have the view zoom out a bit so that you can fly around the city in a helicopter or something.

    Oh, day and night out of those options listed!

    Without trying to sound like a brown nose, I'm sure that if this game turns out to be as great as it's shaping up, then whatever price Tag Games choose will be ultimately justifiable.

    I'd much rather pay 7.99 ( or anything lower for that matter :eek:) because im used to turning away from 9.99 games due to the fact i rarely ever pay for them because they're expensive, 7.99 is much more appealing

    day and night definatly! Street lights (maybe even a few that flicker and shut off as you drive past them), stop lights that cast their aura on the pavement below, and neon signs. Maybe even have gangs come out and claim corners at night.
