    Hello! I'd like to introduce our second game - Wheel & Deal.

    [​IMG]

    Wheel & Deal is a retro-futuristic arcade shooter. It's coming to the App Store January 22nd 2015!

    Controls are simple - pressing left side of the screen turns your vehicle left and vice versa. Your ride shoots and goes forward automatically, but you'll be able to hit the brakes by pressing both sides of the screen simultaneously.

    What makes the gameplay really interesting though, is a plethora of upgrades and malfunction viruses the enemies may drop when destroyed.

    Game has a global Game Center leaderboard.

    Wheel & Deal launch price is $1,99 for a limited time and it will become available worldwide exclusively through the App Store on January 22nd, 2015.

    Oh and here's a trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-PZ9FeDTj0

    Hope you guys like this one!

    Nice!

    Looks simple & stylish, but it's not fancy and this cuts a lot of potential interest and profits from the mass crowd. +1 for the soundtrack as well.

    Thank you very much! Yeah tell us about it, we can't wait the launch ourselves! :D

    We need to finish some final stuff, hence 22nd.

    Thank you!

    You are right. We are aware this game may not appeal to the masses, but there's a surprising amount of old school arcade fans browsing the App Store and we hope those guys and gals find our game! That being said, we are also working on something a bit... different which is shaping up to be our game 3, which will hopefully interest a bit bigger crowd. We'll see.

    Anyways, yeah the soundtrack _is_ rad, we tells you! We really concentrated on it this time. It's coming out soonish after the launch so you can listen to it without the game ambience!

    if this has a lot of cars and upgrades, it will be an instabuy for me too! And will there be different backgrounds/ enemies? I get a sort of Robot Unicorn Attack 2 vibe from it, in a very pleasant way!

    Thank you! At launch the game features four cars with different guns and stats which you can unlock by playing the game and earning cash. The last one - Knight Ace - is the point where the game really starts - you can expect some surprises regarding new, harder, enemies when you play with it! ;) Also it is hard to really dominate the leaderboard without your Knight Ace. You can score decent scores with earlier vehicles tho, if you are lucky and get the right upgrades!

    We are already planning an update with extra content, if the sales are good enough. The updates will be free of charge - we are strictly against IAPs and ads in our games.

    Sorry, not this time! That being said, we are planning to raffle some promocodes before the launch - check us out on Twitter @robotegames - to get in when we do!

    Thanks! If you do that soon I'll keep an eye if it's near the launch I'll wait and buy it.

    Looks interesting, but it would appeal to me more if it had environmental obstacles, such as in a city, or in Berzerk-like levels. Nothing too cramped or restrictive, but enough to give more of a sense of driving to match the car.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We actually toyed around with small obstacles during the development, but decided to scrap them as we really wanted to focus on different cars, guns, enemies and upgrades instead of the arena.

    However, we really would like to add some more content, so it's possible we'll revisit that side later... we'll see!
