Also get on facebook and find local communities that meet physically, it might be a way to meet some like minded people.

 

Do your self a huge favour and look at fiverr.com, you can get some graphics done REAL cheap. We've had some good luck on there.

Excellent game.

Make an iPhone & Facebook version with Facebook connected high score ladders. Get it on the app store!

Considering it's an iPhone game you can make use of the gestures.

Make each of the melee attacks activate using different gestures. Swipe up is upper cut, swipe down is hammer fist, swipe right is lunge bite, swipe left is swat the enemy.

Then make each of the buildings or opponents resistant to certain attacks so the player has to learn to mix it up. You could even make some building require a hammer fist to unsettle the walls then a swipe to bring them down. Not doing the correct combo will result in the monster being hit by the building and reducing health.

Each of the attacks might not destroy all the time, the swat could just make the opponent push back and do minimal damage but you structure the level so that the player has to swat some creatures away because they need to deal with the faster moving ones first and the one they just swatted needs multiple attacks to bring it down.

It feels more cluttered than the old system.

Would like less information being available by default. Post headings are enough for me, if the poster don't make good headings then bugger em.

Game looks great.

Did you blow the budget or were you expecting it to be 200k+?

I almost bought straight away but then I remembered I'm on MacOSX.. I'll try the demo virtualised... if it works, I'll buy ;)
