    It reminds me Destruction Derby of PS1.
    This game got me the good memories of this kind of game!

    We're also working on this.
    Current SFX balance is not working well and crash sounds are cheap. We made new ones that are just waiting for implementation :)

    Hi Pehel,

    I just want to say thank you for such an honest reply. Once you get the update out I will be spending an additional $10 going over my normal $20 max cap because you have been so completely honest and not shied away from even tough questions. Right now I'm focusing on getting to level 36 for that car so when you do drop the update I can get the most upgrades for my buck. I just really want to be able to upgrade my cars.

    Thank you again for being so open and honest. You really have my respect and my money. I do love your game even with its issues.

    Oh and have you had any complaints about the ads? I've noticed a tremendous drop in the number of ads I can watch daily. They've dropped significantly.

    Billy

    I'm a quite new here guys. I would just like to say that this game is superb. I actually love it by the way. You can consider me as an avid fan of this game but then again it is not so perfect, however I believe that with some minor updates this game will actually exceed your expectations.

    Yes we will continue to update the game at least up to the 1.4/1.5.

    Then we will see what we will do.

    In fact, our first objective was to have more updates than this, but the game did very poorly (it cost us far more than the revenues it makes) and due to bad ratings in key countries at launch (especially in US and Germany), the few partners and publishers we had abandoned us (and the game) in a not very elegant way (as we had contracts signed ... So we are really mad at them.).

    We will try to continue to update the game as most as we can, do some advertising and see what happens (even if we are alone now). We really believe we can "save" the game and do better.

    That's BS. Go with Crescent Moon. They are an awesome publisher. Josh is all over this site. Crescent Moon would support you guys completely. They are a good publisher. I purchase a lot of their games and beta test their games as well.

    This is so damn sad to hear. You guys have a great game and are such honest and good developers. You deserve to be successful. If you want Josh's info please let me know. Look up the game Hammer Bomb on this site. That's the latest game they released. You will see how well they back up their developers. I beta tested it too. JoshCM is the lead for Crescent Moon. They wouldn't abandon you.

    Hey Pehel, I'm following the thread in the shadows just in case the iOS 7 compatibility appears, but reading your last post made me come out. I fully agree with Billy, you should really contact Josh to see what/how they can help. I don't know if they sign contracts or not, but I'm pretty sure his word is much worthier than those contracts your supporter companies overrid/cancelled when things went bad. You won't lose anything by sending him a PM through TA.

    Thanks for help, That's very kind of you :)
    But I already submitted EGDA (at the time game's name was Dead Gear) to Josh from Crescent Moon many months ago. And he wasn't interested in it. I don't really believe he will change his mind now.

    Like I said in a Question/Answers video in our Youtube channel, we contacted a lot of publishers (including Crescent Moon). Maybe 40 or 50 all around the world, and they weren't interested in the game for various reasons. That's why we finally choose at the time to work with small local publishers/partners for different areas in the world.

    I made a list of all thoses reasons and maybe one day I'll show it as some are really funny. :D

    But whatever, we continue to work on the game till the 1.4 update (the game will make significant progress until this version ...) and then we'll see.

    Well you are getting atleast an additional $10 from me plus the ad revenue. You could get some lunch atleast lol

    You should actually sell the cars for $2 each. I'd probably buy that level 36 car today at that price if I could.

    For information, we lowered price of golds in app purchases and infinite fuel this week end to see if it changes something.

    Oh cool!

    Let me go buy some gold then. You should lower the cash too I'd probably buy 200k for upgrades with the gold.

    This is awesome! Thank you!

    People this is the time to get that unlimited fuel! Go get it! It's worth it!

    Also again the ads have definitely dropped off. I'm watching 2 to 3 ads and then it says no more available. Sometimes I just watch 1 and then it says none available. Then 6 hours later I get 2 or 3 again.

    If you guys lower the price of cash I've already purchased the 25 pack of gold. I'd like to also get 200k in crash if you lower those prices. You also need to have a way to leave a message in the game so everyone knows when you have sales like this!

    I will investigate about this. That's very weird.

    We can't leave messages in the game as we need to improve again our server sync. That's a lot of work for us (as we already have so much things to improve ...). But I hope we'll be able to work on this sooner as possible.

    Here's some screenshots from one of the next arena (W.I.P. ...)

    [​IMG]

    The containers will be moved by the crane and change shape of the arena during the game.
    It will not be in 1.2 as we implemented an other arena which is finished, but it may be for 1.3. :)

    Wow! I love the screenshots! It looks fantastic. I just finally made level 23 and unlocked the new car. It's really fast. Now I have to work on upgrading it.

    Do you have a set date and possible change log for the next update? Will you have another sale? I'd make some more purchases if there was a sale. I'm running low on gold hehehe.

    I can't wait to be able to move the controls. I really can't. I'm still struggling with the position.

    I also havent been able to unlock the warship level. I can't wait for more gold to be fairly given out while playing to earn it. Now I have a new car to upgrade and it cost me 4 gold to buy it. Shouldn't I be making more cash the higher level I am? The most I ever get from playing a match is $1,600 to 3,600 per match. It's never gone higher and the upgrades are so expensive. The ads I could watch have been so few that I can't even go that route and it's very expensive to purchase via IAP. I would think the amount you make should increase the higher level you are and what position you make in the match.

    I know I'm a pain in the ass. I need you to understand I really like this game. I don't want things for free. I paid for things like unlimited fuel and gold. I just want more fair pricing or since I've paid a fair way to actually play and earn it more. I really do love this game.

    Better than a sale, as we are working on "achievement/missions" aspect of the game that help players win more Cr and Golds, but it takes a lot of time, we will make some minor changes for very soon :

    - Lower in app prices and they will all give more content.
    - Leveling up will sometimes give more Golds than currently.
    - Daily rewards will give way more Credits and Golds (nearly twice as currently)

    It's not very important changes, but we hope it will help people to wait a bit for later big updates.

    Yes I know, and you're not the only one unfortunately .. :/
    It will come a bit later. We want to add this but we are really overwhelmed by things that need to be improved. I think you can count on it for 1.4 version.

    I hope the next improvements I talked to you about will help you !

    Currently, Credits you win at the end of a match are calculated like this :
    - The higher level you are, more you'll win bonus cash
    - Your overall result at the end of a game
    - The number of cars your destroyed (+100 for each car if I remember well)
    - There's also a bonus that depends on the arena you played with (the more the arena is expensive, the more the bonus we'll give you is big. It goes from 300Cr to 2500 Cr for the latest arenas.)

    I hope this can help :)

    Don't worry, it's no problem for me :)
    I prefer people that tell us what is wrong, so it help us to improve the game than people that just say "This game is shit !" :D
    So that's cool :)

    For the 1.2 Update, unless we are far from perfection, I think we made a first improvement step.

    - Some in-App purchase are far less expensives (Credits are Up to 5 times less expensive and you will have more gold in each Gold pack. Some fuel in-apps are also less expensive.), while some confusing in-apps related to XP or fuel have been deleted.
    - Server synchronization have been hugely improved. That's now far better for people playing the game on many different devices. This also allow us be more reactive in case of cheaters or if a player need support. This aspect will be also very important for the next updates and improvements :)
    - A new arena with 2 height levels : The Parking
    - Lot of bug fixes related to compatibility problems on some devices. (And a bit of optimization work :) )

    We will continue to work on the game in following months. Many 1.3 update elements are already ready (thanks to our top team !) and now we work on biggest improvements :)
