    Hey,

    after a lot of back and forward (Including a complete rewrite of the game) We are almost nearing launch! Exciting I know.

    Thought it would be good to show some of the work that's gone into making the game and will be posting more so if you're interested let us know.

    Thanks Rich! Glad you like it.

    Yes, definitely looking for Beta Testers. Two weeks until we are ready for that, but will send you an IM if you're still interested then.

    Be great to get your feedback.

    After more revisions than we can count, it's been approved and pending developer release on the App store!!

    Here is a quick screen capture of some game play. In the process of making a trailer and then we can release.
    Planning to do an article on the making of the game for those who are interested.

    Thanks so much

    Hey,

    thanks for your comment on the graphics, much appreciated.

    After extensive testing we were unable to get it working for ipad and iphone to the way we wanted in the time and budget we had available, so we made the runner. We're more than happy with it though and have tried to give it a new flare, hope you enjoy it if you choose to download.

    Thanks!

    Hey Andre,

    power-ups, score bonuses and leaderboard rankings.
    It's hard to collect Hoodsters though, after playing for a long time, I've just managed it recently.

    Thanks

    The original concept art for the main player characters, Tommy and Num Num. We changed their colour to red in the game as it better contrasted with the worlds. Future versions will have choose-able outfits!

    Remember, game will be available tomorrow! Made especially for iPad retina and iPhone.

    i really hope this game will turn to be a real platformer game like ducktales, im not saying that its a bad game as an auto runner, its just a game with great graphic and hugable character like this deserve more than just be an endless runner. well thats just my opinion.

    Hey Redribbon,

    thanks very much for your comments, it's fantastic you like the graphics and the characters. They've been a huge part of the development and it's been exciting to have an idea and see it developed into something we can be truly proud of.


    It's also very motivating to hear people wanting this to develop into the platformer we had originally intended it to be.
    All of the assets and game design for the platformer are complete, as mentioned earlier though we need to find a bigger budget to make sure that meets the very strict quality I want from this project. It's all been self-financed so far!


    Any proceeds from the runner (which we are also very proud of and sure will be enjoyed) will go into making the platformer, so fingers crossed for that.


    Thanks again and if you do decide to download it, make sure to leave a review, it helps more than you can imagine :)
