Ghoulish Hijinks - My First Game Released

Recommended Posts

Enchantainment    137

Hi everyone.

 

I've dabbled in game design since I was a boy at school, but last year I decided to begin creating my first proper game, intended for actual release. For the last year I've worked on it and it's finally out and ready to play. The game is called Ghoulish Hijinks.

 

As this is my first major game, I knew that I should take on a small game that wasn't too ambitious, especially being one man working on the game (however someone else did make the music!).

 

Here is a link to a trailer that I made for the game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cn0vedB_BxE

 

Like the trailer points out, Ghoulish Hijinks is an arcade style point scoring game. The goal is to try and get a high score on the different levels that you can unlock and play.

 

Here are some screenshots for you to look at too.

The game is only available on the iPhone/iPod 5, 5S and 5C right now, as I don't have the funds to bring it to other platforms. Maybe if this is successful enough, I could bring it to other platforms.

 

I should also point out that the game was designed for the iPhone/iPod 5 which it runs nicely on. I tried optimising it to run on the iPhone/iPod 4, but the game does not want to run properly on it. I can't say how it runs on the iPads, as I didn't have access to any while I was developing the game, so I can't recommend if it runs alright on them or not.

 

Here is a link to the iTunes page if anyone would like to visit it at all https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ghoulish-hijinks/id721754328?ls=1&mt=8

 

I'm on Twitter if anyone is interested in following me too https://twitter.com/Enchantainment

 

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks good, but I think the graphic is kinda messy. Hard to see the important items. Maybe you should do something to the color? fade? to visible the important aspects of the game.

 

Thanks for your feedback. I'll take that information into account!

It's very reminscent of classic arcade games..  Best endeavors...

Yeah my goal was to create a game where the objective is to get a high score, like Pac-Man or the original Donkey Kong. Not only because I find those types of games the most replayable, but because I'm a one man team, it was the most realistic thing to pursue.
