Hi, take a look at my first game. It’s been made over the last 5 months by a friend and myself.

I’m an Industrial / Product Designer by day and an app developer by night (when my wife and kids are asleep) and my friend is a Graphic Designer.

I won’t take credit, it is based on my friends idea that actually started out as an idea for a physical toy.. However I saw it as a video game. So Laserbreak was born!

We launched this 2 weeks ago on the Play store and thus far the response has been good. Check it out if you get a chance. Love to hear your comments / feedback!

This looks good for a first game. What did you use to build it?

 

Some constructive feedback, I hope: maybe put a scroll indicator or down arrow on your website? Initially it just looks like a title and link on a plain background.

 

Secondly, your trailer doesn't make it clear what you do in the game. It seems like a cool tom-n-jerry trap system, a little like mousetrap the game. But I don't understand whether you need to aim the laser to set off that reaction, or set up the layout of the pieces?

I used Corona SDK. I choose it because you can deploy to Android and IOS "relatively" easily.
The trailer / video was supposed to create some intrigue but this is not my department :) I'll pass your feedback onto my friend the Graphics guy. Hes on holiday at the moment.
Yeah it is a bit like the mousetrap game, it evolved from a very simple concept until I started adding in all sorts of new physics objects to play around with. I hope it didnt get too lost in the process.
 
Thanks for the taking the time to reply to my post, your feedback is valued.
