    Hello community,

    I want to introduce you to my latest project. CopperTop: Greed is a 2D platform game with lots of action. I am hoping for a cute like Mario but tough like <insert any really hard game here>.

    If you enjoy jumping on walls, discovering secrets, stomping enemies and collecting gold, Copper Top: Greed may just be your game!



    Thanks for reading

    T.

    Hi community,

    Hope we are all well.

    It's almost time for me to come around with my begging bowl and ask you would be interested testing this bad boy.:D

    Testing is likely to commence in 2 weeks time, I am just finishing off the next few map segments.

    If you're interested in testing please reply to this thread and as soon as it's ready I'll let you all know.

    Here is the world map, the area names are WIP so please don't judge me, yet...;)

    Just a quick update... I have setup the beta as an open beta with 10 IOS slots available.

    The build has been submitted to test flight, I am just waiting on Apple's beta review approval and then I will post the public beta link

    Thanks in advance and happy testing :) (eventually)

    Dear Beta Testers,

    Firstly, thanks to everyone who took the time to download the beta.

    If you have any feedback, please let me know, I am working on ironing out a few bugs but would be very keen to hear anything about the gameplay, level design or difficulty.

    Regards,

    T.

    Unable to play it on my iPad Mini 2. The game keeps closing by itself every time I attempt to open it.

    Hi J05H,

    I am really sorry the game isn't working on your iPad Mini2. I will look into this ASAP (I have an iPad Mini 1st Gen). The lowest device I have tested on is an iPhone 5.

    I will get this working ASAP and let you know once I have submitted the new build; once again please accept my apologies.

    T.

    Hi community,

    So finally some good news :) I have corrected the game to ensure it works on an iPad AIR (1st Gen) so J05H you should have no problems in running it on your AIR now :)

    I had made several other improvements based on feedback from this awesome community, here are some of the highlights:
    1. Increased the hit boxes on the buttons so it should be that little bit easies to control the character
    2. Implemented a hidden virtual joystick (2nd control option), kinda like Oddmar so you can play the game without visible buttons (the joystick is active anywhere on the left side of the screen, the jump button is anywhere on the right side of the screen)
    3. Increased the jump button hit box to cover the entire right hand side of the screen
    4. A few minor level tweaks, just a little balancing
    5. I have enabled "The Tower"
    6. SoundFX and background music can now be independently controlled via sliders on the options menu

    and there is a bunch more stuff.

    I am just waiting on the latest build to be processed by Apple and then I'll release it on testflight (build number 0.94).

    All 10 existing beta testing slots have been taken (thanks), I have enabled a further 5 slots so if you didn't get a slot hopefully now you will, if you miss out please just DM me and I will get you added STAT!

    There are still items I am working on such as a stronger character (I think I have got one, it's not in this build as I am still testing/tweaking to make sure I am happy with it)
    There is a minor issue on text rendering on my iPad AIR 1st gen, so I am looking into that but thanksfully it doesn't affect gameplay

    Once again thanks for all the excellent feedback, you peeps rock!

    Yes:D:D, Apple have finally approved my latest Beat build for testing (v0.95) and to celebrate heres a little video of some of the fun in store...

    [youtube]

    The video is using the new dynamic virtual joystick :D no more need for those pesky virtual buttons, but they are still there as a controller option is you prefer them.

    Once again thanks to this awesome community for all the feedback, gold!

    There is another build in the works, some of the feedback I received didn't make it to this build but suffice to say the next build will include mid-level checkpoints to hopefully make some of the trickier levels a little easier to overcome and hopefully perhaps appeal to an audience which isn't in the category of platforming gods.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Hi Simoqsa,

    Yep:), I have just ordered my Gamevice Controller for "testing" purposes.

    I will test (and tweak) as needed over the weekend and hopefully have an MFI enabled build out early next week.

    I have spent bloody ages getting the controls just right for the touchscreen so an mfi controller isn't needed:D but will surely help!

    All the best,

    Terry
