Version 1.1 is now in the App Store!







Whoa, it's been a busy couple of months!

Coming Halloween, October 31, 2009!
Sign up on our mailing list & be the first to get it!
Also, keep updated on new versions, contests, etc.

YouTube Preview!





The downloadable PC game I released here in 2008 has been completely remade and souped up for the iPhone and iPod Touch! Kiss Not only is this my first iPhone game, but it's my first commercial game ever.

Of course, since I'm such a big-time amateur, this was only made possible by a couple of indie vets. These guys are creator of the iPhone/TIGCompo masterpiece Enviro-Bear, and the fantastic musician behind Bonesaw and The Spirit Engine 2.

I did nothing to deserve working with such awesome folks, so I'm wetting myself with excitement!

The game features:

  • More (awesome) powerups and several different enemies
  • 3 control schemes: Tilt, Seek, and 2-Button
  • We worked our asses off on polish & special effects.
  • Online highscores, and achievements
  • Come on, what other games can you drop nukes on Vampire Pigs?
  • It'll be cheap <3






Some extra ramblings for who it may interest:

Skullpogo is basically my efforts to create the ultimate coffee-break game. It is all about the gameplay, and thus offers no cinematics, no flashy cutscenes, no RPG elements, and no lengthy loading screens. When they've got 100 Apps on their iPhone, I want people to choose Skullpogo because it's: 1) Quick to start up. One-press and you're playing! 2) Fun in premise, easy to play, yet skillful to master. And 3) I can't think of an excuse not to want to battle hordes of the undead with nothing but a pogo stick. Really. When your friend leans over your shoulder and asks what you're playing, no summary or explanation of Skullpogo should have your friend leave that interaction without their interest piqued.

In a market full of clones, movie-based titles, novelty beer-drinking apps, and largely (though not wholly) uninspiring creations, I hope I can bring something fun and interesting that people can come back to again and again, whether they're bored, in-between chores, or looking to rock some  :shrug2:major combo chains. Not just play for two minutes and then hit up the App Store for something new.

Renton has a good point.. if you get someone to recode this into flash, im sure you could get it sponsored for around $2700, and it would have literally millions of plays all over the internet.

Its actually like a more polished version of Indestructotank or whatever that was called.. an that game got huge!

That's the exact same thing Cactus told me! (about looking into getting sponsored+recoded, not indestructotank)

You guys really thing it could be that popular?


You guys are too kind. Just because of that, I'm gonna give you all a special feature right now. Smiley

Okay! New downloads are up with online-score compaitibility! Everybody, download it again. If you want to keep your highscores so you can submit them online, just transfer the "SCORES.dat" file over and the game will automatically load up your scores from it.

Ha, fun game! Grin

44619 on first try. Something seems a little strange with the online highscore though; I hit Submit, and my score seems to be on the online highscore table, but it doesn't yet show up in the game when I hit Refresh.

I think it might have something to do with a cache or something like that. Because I programmed it to wipe the online score record clean and download a new one when refresh was pressed. I'll have to look into it more. You can get it refreshed if you quit the game and open it up again (for some reason). The online list is always updated, though.

I'll have to fix that refresh function.

I think you mean MB instead of KB in your first post there... o_O

Whoa what the fuck.  The transparency for the sprites is just uhh not working for me, and everything has a big ole white box around it.  Weird.

i think that too with flash + sponsoring...   Beer!

i say to you chevyravy: this polished game has real potential, so believe in yourself and your project and check it out.  Smiley
good chances to get sponsored and get some money for your brillant effort.  Gentleman

i myself prefer downloadable versions but hey they are hordes of people out there who love flash games...and i think they would appreciate such a quality game.

btw
my new hiscore 56.564
(waited every level until the timer was nearly over and only then i collected the level up thing.)

Oh, one small thing: it might be nice to have the option to turn off sound and/or music separately within the game.

So, here's some feedback that I went over with ChevyRay during the beta phase, but would like to convey to the public for thoughts:

  • Separating the good powerups from the bad and having them spawn separately, so that you don't end up getting the "reverse controls" and "rain" powerups four times in a row.
  • Add a timer which shows the duration time of the powerup that is currently active.
  • Add time to the timer after each hit in a significant combo- IE, adding a bit of time for each hit after 20 that you make.
