    Hi Guys,

    I'm the developer of iGangster, which I submitted to the app store yesterday!

    Now the long wait of approvel starts, I'll let you guys know when it's out!

    Game info:

    iGangster - You might want to sleep, but somethings always up at the streets of iGangster!

    Get ready to rule the streets of the big city. What gang will overthrow all others, and what gang will be forced into submission?

    Run your dough in the casino, test your luck in the lottery, spin the roulette and maybe even cash in the jackpot!

    Manage a myriad of stocks, but be on alert for bankruptcy.

    Decorate your gang thugs with fat rides and giant guns.

    Control your assets by bank accounts and build op your reputation by employing more gang thugs.

    Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

    Igangster is mandatory from now on!

    Let the games begin..


    Gameplay

    iGangster is a tactical game that is playing in real time even when you are not online.

    Try to make as much money as possible by doing jobs and investing your money in properties. You can try a little gambling in the casino, or you can invest your money in stocks.

    Make sure you hire the right gang members, because each member has his own specialty!

    Steal, lie, cheat, and do everything possible to outgrow your opponents!

    * iGangster is NOT a spam-war game. You can have friends, but those are real friends and don't count as your gang members. You can check your friends stats and communicate via a pm (Private Message) system.

    * People with creditcards are NOT stronger. There is no way to buy yourself to the top of the boards in iGangster. Real money is worth nothing ingame!

    Oh, and you say it plays in real time when you are not online...
    Does that mean I can also play offline (I only have a Touch and am not always near wifi).

    No, it's online only. What I ment by that is that the game is always 'on', it continue's even when you're offline (as in not running the game) :) You can get attacked, stocks are going up, down or even go broke, the jackpot increases or gets payed, lotteries run etc etc :)

    I was just hoping, but I figured that's what you meant. :)

    Sure wish I had known about this game for beta testing, would have loved to help out as I'm a big fan of these mmo's but I'll definitely keep my eyes open!

    A legit MMO... hmmmm, interesting. Love the GUI, very polished, very nice. I give it an 8.5/10. Better keep my eyes open for this.

    I'm going to assume you know what you're talking about as you're name is on the leaderboards, which leads me to believe you must have been a beta-tester! ;)

    Crypton is indeed a beta tester of iGangster :)

    Are the leaderboards going to be reset with the release? ;)

    Yes, what you currently see are the beta leader boards. Shortly before the release everything will get reset.

    I've obviously now anticipating the game... ;)
    Am I correct to assume that although not a spamathon, it still plays the same way as other MMO's, in terms of time to regenerate health, property, energy etc.?
     
  15. VTX

    VTX Well-Known Member

    That is correct.

    BUT: You can hire (no, not with you creditcard ;) ) special gangsters who for example decrease waiting time for stamina reload.

    Huge difference are the stocks: They are a major part of the game, I don't know any other MMO which has such a system implemented :)

    Another very strong point (imo) is the startup time of the game. It's a game you start a lot and you don't want to wait 10 - 20 - 30 seconds before you're in the game and can do something.

    Depending on your internet connection speed iGangster starts up in 3 - 4 seconds, which is a must for a MMO imho.

    I really hope you guys will like it :)

    I want to thanks you for release this game, it is far better than an iSpam and iAddme game (you know what i mean) It is more like Cozzy Quest or another RPG.

    I will enjoy it of course, count on me the day of the release

    Do you plan to add push notification ? It will be a killer game with this, notified when someone attack you etc...

    Edit: But i think it will be good to rename the title, because iGangsters make the game like iMob etc.... it will be better to have a title like Gangwars or something else...

    Maybe I'll will add push notification at a later stage. I didn't add it as I didn't want to force users to upgrade to firmware 3.0. Especially for ipod touch users, as they have to pay for the 3.0 firmware.

    I agree on the title of the game. It will be blended in the horrible mix of addme games out there.

    Not for me though, cos I'll be there on the first day !

    Its too late for a name change :)

    Also I started to fall in love with the name. Im using it for a few months now. At first I didn't think it would be the final name, but it grew on me I guess :)

    I am beta tester too obviously since my name is in the leaderboards. I have to say I have never really been a huge fan of mmo's. I tried the playmesh ones but having to add people by codes to move ahead and being able to buy your way up infuriated me. I was intrigued by this game when I was told that those two annoying features would not be present. The stocks system, casino, PM set up, and ability to hire gangsters with special effects to help you really made thus unique from other mmo's I have tried. This game actually absorbed me like mmo's normally do with their fans, which until now I had never been. Truely a great game, well worth the $1.99 asking price.
