    Hey everyone! After releasing Checkpoint Champion in November last year, Dean and I are in the final stages of making our second game, Sling Kong.

    [​IMG]



    It's an Endless Slinger (for lack of a better term). The aim to is to sling one of 50 cute, collectable characters through a vertical gauntlet of mayhem. It probably won't be finished for at least another month, so you can expect a release sometime in August, but we'll be adding new info to this thread as we go.

    Check out our sneak peek video, or better yet, if you've got a device with iOS8, you can sign up to help us test the game right now. :)

    Yeah, thanks Roger. It's a lot more accessible than Checkpoint Champion, but I think there's still a lot to like for more skillful players. It kinda goes from easy to pretty damn impossible in 60 seconds. Beating your friends scores and challenging them to beat yours will be a good way to earn extra coins too. :)

    Thanks for the promo!!! This is a really well polished casual game. I cannot tell if it's going to be released for free or paid. Honestly I would be fine with either. It has a coin system that is only used for new characters that are cosmetic only. It's super fair like crossy roads but I didn't see any ads or any offers for ads. It's a nice super cute game.✌️

    It will be a free game, so no pressure on the IAPs. :) We appreciate any support though, and if you like the game please be sure to put a review on the store (although I'm not sure you can do this until Thursday).

    This looks cute, plus any CR comparison perks me right up. I figured all the promo codes were gone, but I snagged
    AXYLMT9K3XX3?! Thanks!

    Edit: Wow, this is fun! Slingshot mechanic is great and I unlocked the lion. Can't wait to play some more tomorrow. Congratulations and Good Luck on the game.

    Excellent game! Surprisingly good and addictive, I really like it. I usually don't like free to play games and can't bother playing those more than 2 minutes

    I have been beta testing this one and it has been one of my favorites!
    Very cute free to play game with ads by choice. So there's no pressure. You earn coins in the game and can use them for earning different characters by playing an extra little side game or, watch a video ad for extra coins.

    Get ready to giggle in this super fun and super easy to play game. Even the name sounds a little bit funny. Sling Kong is quite literal. You 'Sling' Kong, or other animals by using a rubber band type mechanism to pull back, aim and let go.
    If you aim correctly, your character will grab a peg. Then you pull back again, and grab another.
    If you do it incorrectly, your character will come crashing down and maybe shatter into pieces or maybe something else. But; look out for dangerous obstacles like fire or walls. It's a jungle out there and anything could happen.
    Creative and unique, Sling Kong is filled with cute graphics and fun noises.
    Fantastic for Young and young at heart.
    Definitely a game you will come back to again and again, just like me. I'm going back to it now. After all, I have a monkey to save. :)

    Thanks for...a code. I surprisingly caught a code this morning and just after downloading, my iphone 5s died. For the next 2-3 weeks i'm stuck with a replacement iphone 5 with no GB at all. Three games are installed now, including yours, lol.

    Incredibly polished, super easy and responsive controls, cute characters to unlock, and if you like this climbing higher genre, than there's no reason to not try the game out once it's released.

    Good luck!
