Default Gameplay Video #1

We're glad to say we can now show you the first footage of the game!

There are two main gameplay styles. This first video (there will be more) shows our hero Ashley Ao in a couple of scenes which are all about action.

We won't give too much of the story away yet, but Ashley is on a planet which is part way to being terraformed for a foreign race. But the planet isn't quite as yielding as the scouting colony were led to believe.

In terms of controls, you can trigger combo attacks by timing successive hits using the two action buttons. We've designed the play mechanic so you can keep pulling out the chains of combos without stopping if you time it right. So you can keep cycling through the ground and air attacks which you'll need as you come across stronger hazards.

You can also swipe to change lanes and hold down one of the buttons to speed boost. But don't let too many of the aliens get past you or you'll be in for an unpleasant surprise.

We'll also be adding some more moves and abilities but we'll talk more about that another time.

So here you go, enjoy...!

Cheers, we'll have some more to show soon. We're working on some cool boss scenes at the moment.

The preview articles have started to come in. Here are a couple from Wrixel and Droidgamers and a post on PocketGamer.

Hopefully a few more places will pick up on the preview trailer and post it. If anyone reading contrubutes to gaming sites, you can download the press pack for Ashley Ao here. Also feel free to get in touch if you want different screenshots etc.

Default More previews

Some more preview articles coming in (no I don't sit here googling my own apps all day, I've got a google alert set up )

App Safari gave us a nice write up. Glad to hear the reviewer is enthustiastic about what they've seen (and heard!) so far. (We're still making the game so the 'available on the app store' button isn't quite accurate).

Also TheCareerGamer.com gave us a nice little post.

GameTrailers put the preview up too. I like the streets of rage comment. I suppose it's fair enough for what we've shown of the game so far.

So overall feedback so far is positive - seems like peeps are looking forward to playing Ashley Ao. Be interesting to see what comments we get when we show the other gameplay elements.

It looks amazing, but being a runner turns me off.
