For the past few months we have been working hard on an awesome new 3d physics puzzler called “Save Toshi”. here is the current gameplay video of the game:
We believe in listening to our players, so when we started testing the game with some great testers from TouchArcade forums, we conducted all the beta activity as a public conversation on this forum thread:
This is where all of us shared thoughts and came up with great solutions and it was amazing. In a couple of weeks the game really improved and we couldn’t help thinking that maybe we should do something even bigger with this open beta approach. This is how we came up with the idea to conduct a massive open beta experiment, and here is how it’s gonna works:
1) You download the game for FREE from the appstore and join our beta list (via the game).
2) we send you some super simple instructions on how to suggest and vote for features using the awesome and easy to use www.uservoice.com
3) We polish the game using this massive and organized feedback
We will be limiting the number of testers to the first 1000 people who join the open beta list. Once we get there we will close the list and temporarily remove the game from the store until testing is over and an improved game is released as a paid game.
We just submitted the build and we don’t know when the game will be approved by apple. If you’re interested in joining this open beta project, subscribe to our fan list and we will send you an email alert once the beta version is in store.
Cant wait to start, this is going to be fun!
Today, Ive decided nitako really needs a new sit e so I’m checking to see whether wordpress would be the most painless way to create a site more lively than what we have now. Till now it looks like it’s the best platform for what I’m planning to do soon…
To celebrate the fact that our new game Eco Punk, is being featured on iTunes under “What’s Hot”,
We decided to make our previous iPhone hit Rasta Monkey FREE for the next 3 days!!!
Get now while you still can and bring your friends too!
Hi People !
We decided to release a web player version of the game using the help of our friend the Unity web player. We uploaded the game to GameJolt which is a great gaming portal with lots of great games!
The web version includes the Classic mode of Eco-Punk, the two other modes are -
- Blitz – a 1 minute version of the game that requires you to be uber fast.
- Time-bend – In which you also control the flow of time with your movement (You gotta see it, it’s really mind bending)
will be only available with the iPhone version of the game.
So , I present to you…. Eco-Punk the web version! http://gamejolt.com/online/games/action/eco-punk/1547/
Enjoy the game and send us your feedback!
Take the role of the insane blood-thirsty eco-friendly, skating punk bunny. Defend your neighborhood against pollution by cleaning up the streets and blowing up polluting vehicles in a raging killing spree…
E-Punk is a fast paced dodging and shooting game with a simple goal – you need to collect as many garbage items as fast as possible while avoiding collision with street traffic. Along the way you also collect different power ups like shield and guns with which you can blow up the polluting vehicles and get more points. While the game might seem pretty simple with its single level and ramping difficulty, it really strikes that addictive balance of casual pick-up gameplay that makes you keep try it “just one more time”.
E-Punk innovative touch controls are simple and intuitive. The only control you have in the game is over your character’s moving and sliding around. To move just click anywhere on the screen and drag your finger and the character will accurately follow that path . Swiping your finger causes the bunny to slide in the direction of the swipe. All in all, the controls were designed exclusively for the iPhone and make it feel like a natural iPhone game.
The official trailer offers a glimpse of the action:
There are 3 available game modes – Classic, Blitz and TimeBend. The Blitz is a “score as high as you can in under 1 minute” mode, A-la Bejeweled Blitz. TimeBend mode on the other hand is a brilliant twist on the game mechanics. In this mode the speed of all the surrounding vehicles increases or decreases based on your own character speed. The result is a mind bending and very unique gameplay that we found to be highly addictive.
The charming 3d art, which uses pre baked texture maps, is stylishly modern with a nostalgic isometric feel. You also have a choice of listening to the original hard rock soundtrack or to your own Music, and control the wacky voice talent that keeps shouting hilarious rude insults at the passing drivers (oy! you son of a nipple!)
Last but not least, 5% of all revenues will be donated to real eco causes, so you can actually SAVE the environment while blowing up cars.
We also released a web player version of the game using the help of our friend the Unity web player. We uploaded the game to GameJolt which is a great gaming portal with lots of great games! – The web version only includes the Classic mode of Eco-Punk – http://gamejolt.com/online/games/action/eco-punk/1547/
