    Hi there!

    We are two guys working day and night with a hard-boiled arcade shooter for iOS and Android. The game is called Huntdown and is a bit of a cyberpunkish platformer with lots of action. We both grew up with Commodore-computers in the 80s and we have a passion for old retro games. So we´re designing the game with hand-drawn pixel animations and using old tracker-programs for the soundtrack.

    The game will feature action packed 60 fps gameplay, co-op multiplayer and lots of enemies and bosses.

    We would love to get some input from you guys!

    This looks like a game that was published by Devolver Digital, I can't remember the name.

    Looks amazing, reminds me of Robocop and Batman on Amiga a while ago.

    Thanks guys! We are thrilled you like it.
    That's great! We love the Warriors :)

    Awesome!

    We are thinking about going for a free version (play the full game as much as you like but if you die you start over) and a one time cost to always be able to continue at the level you die. We want as many people as possible to play the game but without doing the microtransaction stuff we don't like. We believe some hardcore players will love the challenge to beat the game with one life, and the rest of us will enjoy the game enough to buy the full version with unlimited continues.

    I hope you guys like this approach?

    Great!

    Oh you heard that, we put it in in the last minute :)

    Maybe Broforce? Great game!

    Thanks! We will try to get it out as soon as possible!

    Great references! We want to capture the vibe from all the 80s hardboiled action movies/games we watched and played as kids!

    The pricing system you're planning seems quite fair to me, at least.

    Yes!

    That pricing system is perfect. I will be paying for sure. Thank you!

    Billy

    I do have a question. How well is ammo placed? Is there a basic weapon that has unlimited ammo? Or do you really have to make every shot count?

    Definitely keeping my eye on this. Another solid looking premium game on the radar.

    Keep the updates coming.

    I'm not too big of a fan for old school retro platformers but I don't know how anyone could watch that trailer and not want to play it. The graphics are amazing. You guys are doing and insane job. Keep up the great work!
