    Super Super - Mad Pig Games

    Hi everyone, this is Derrick aka Mad Pig. I'm an animator by day and an indie dev when I can find free time at night. Originally started with two people, Mad Pig Games is now just myself.

    I'm working on my second game and thought I'd share some pre-release gameplay. Let me know what you think.



    The video doesn't show all the super waves. I'll be adding more enemies and super waves.

    I've got some bugs to squash. Just today, I found it crashed a lot on my wife's faster iPad mini (I'm using the first iPad mini). I've fixed that bug. I'm writing everything in Apple's Swift. So much easier than Objective-C.

    I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the difficulty as it is, or start of easier and ramp it up as the player plays.

    Gameplay:
    Swipe up from base to fire base's ball.
    Tap in paddle area to create up to three paddles.
    Keep Super Super letters for higher multiplier.
    Earn a letter from 20 bars (5 bars if special is lit).

    Feedback is appreciated.

    Private message me with your First Name, Last Name and email address if you'd like to test the Super Super.
    IOS 8.x only


    Cheers,
    Derrick / Mad Pig

    Here's the original prototype I did in Objective-C

    Update and let me know if you want to be a tester.

    Thanks for the input on the icon. I lean toward number 1 also.

    Update:

    I have found and fixed a bug where the cpu performance kept degrading every super wave. Tracked it down to how I was turning off and on collisions for the bars.

    I've also finally figured out how to get the game to scale properly for the iPhone. I'll stick to playing on the iPad mini. Feels like the perfect size. At least people without iPads will be able to play if they want.

    Now to add more enemies! Oh, and more stuff for the game over screen like high score.

    Private message me with your First Name, Last Name and email address if you'd like to test the Super Super.

    Next Beta coming out soon. Looking for testers.

    Send me a PM with email address if you'd like to beta test.

    It was a nightmare, but I tracked down all of the cpu degradation bugs. Painful to find when it takes 5 minutes to show 1% degrade.

    Beta 1.0 build 3
    bug - Fixed Title Letter improper scale after dead.
    bug - Fixed Title Letter crash after super wave.
    bug - Fixed Bars still collided after hit and marked for death. Added die anim sprites for bars.
    bug - Removed all dynamics editing after creation which caused cpu degrade over time. Required new sprites for all death animations and new sprites when the ball changes color/settings.
    bug - Not removing all actions on number digits caused cpu degrade over time.
    bug - Fixed drop ship bars counting error.
    bug - Fixed base animation after shield get's hit.
    bug - Believe I fixed the bug where the score added up after game over and would not end up as a high score.
    bug - Fixed base not reloading ball when converted to yellow ball dies.
    new - Added Speed Bonus Text.
    new - Super Waves now have a timer.
    new - Added Purple Bar.
    new - Clear a Super Wave turns on Special and spawns 6 Bar Drop Ships.
    new - Enemy spawn loop now includes group drop ship spawns.
    tweak - Now less impulse push to correct when balls are moving too straight up/down or side/side.
    tweak - Bar Drop ship now only takes 1 hit to kill, making it easier to enable Special.
    tweak - Now color bars are a little more likely to spawn.
    tweak - Blue bar no longer splits ball, but upgrades base. Purple now splits ball.

    issue - If Super Wave Ship spawns during block animation, it will not suck in those bars. (short spawning loop causes issue)
