App description: "If youre hungry for a classic gaming challenge that doesnt conform to the usual standards of app game platformers, Meganoid is worth a long look." - Appolicious 4/5

"If you enjoy platformers and especially if you played and enjoyed League of Evil, I highly recommend the game." - Pixelated sausage 4/5

"If you dont mind dying millions of times and love retro-style games, then be sure to give this decent platformer a shot." - Slidegamer

"For those of you that grew up on the Nintendo like I did, this game is for you." - PocketfulofMB - Game of the week


Meganoid gets most of its inspiration from 80s and 90s games, the pixel-art graphic style is on purpose!

** THIS GAME IS NOT EASY!

Each challenging level can be completed within a minute of gaming, making the pace of the game pretty fast, but many levels require multiply tries to complete. New levels will be added in updates!

On top of the OpenFeint achievement challenges, every level also rewards you with a Time star and a Diamond star to collect!

** CONTENTS:

90 hard levels, playable in three modes: Hero mode, Sarge mode and Oreah mode -- Sarge and Oreah mode need unlocking!

More levels are coming in updates soon, check our blog to keep informed!

** GAME STYLE

Meganoid comes in full 8bit retro pixelart style, complete with chiptune and sound effects, we personally love this style, and it fits the genre!

This could be the coolest 2d platform side scroller you can find ;)

Keep updated on this game by checking: http://www.orangepixel.net/meganoid/


** BUGS

if you run into problems or the game wont work on your device, instead of just rating 1 star, you could help us fix it by providing feedback!

Whoops, I should've been more clear in my post. It's the complete Meganoid 100% achievement. No, it didn't unlock in OF. Heh, there's actually 39/46 unlocked in OF, but I just care about the 45/46 for GC.

After the update, I can't play any stage, I click "play" on the level select screen, and the game crashes back to the home screen. I've tried doing a hard reset, clearing multitask blah blah... Also deleted (loosing my save... Blah) and reinstalled, with no luck.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Running on both a 4th gen touch and iPad 2 (happens on both devices) running iOS 5.1 and NOT jailbroken.

strange, that was not supposed to be the new feature of the game

Even more strange is that we can't recreate it, the game just works on our end. If anybody else has this please let us know as many details as you can (when does it crash, do you have openfeint, are you logged in to openfeint, etc)

Tried it again, deleting and reinstalling, and it's working now.

But I wasn't using OF.... Don't think that helps... I also can't sync my iPod to my pc to get the crash reports, cause Everytime I try to, iTunes wants to delete everything... =o/

Sorry I'm not any help whatsoever... But hopefully it's just me that had the issue. =oP

looking into it, have another person with the same bug..
09-11-2012, 02:03 PM
Alrighty... I restored my iPod, lost all my data, reinstalled Meganoid, ran it, beat the first level, closed it, cleared it from my multitasking bar, started it up again, tried playing level 2, and it crashed, just like it did in that video I sent your way. Then synced my iPod to my PC again...

Even worse? No crash report was saved or transferred. I even deleted all my past crash reports so that I could be sure if one was transferred over but not named 'meganoid'

=o/

But now I'm running it on iOS 5.1.1 - and still getting crashes
