Status report!

It took us a little longer to make sure the game engine's upgrade was stable, but we're submitting our first update tonight!

The potential bad news: Achievements may not make it in this update. The potential good news in case of potential bad news happening: we'll just submit a new version with Achievements as soon as we put them in. That means at some point during next week. By the way, the two Achievements that you guys suggested will be in!

Now, here's what you'll get in this first update for sure:
  • The much requested PAUSE button!
  • 15 new Spookling Formations!
  • Tweaks to some formations to prevent overlapping. You can now perform longer Pack Kill combo streaks!!
  • And of course, the game engine's upgrade. Graphics look now more crisp, specially on iPhones, and the game runs more smoothly.

We'll begin work on our next update on Monday: that will be a new kind of Spookling, a tweaked (read: more rewarding) Score System, and Google Play Services for Android.

Thanks for caring

Check out Attack of the Spooklings.

Great news !
Very looking forward, especially the overlapping stuff.
Though i never beaten my highscore again, i'm still in the top twenty.
(wonders about that)
Well then, i will attack and defend again as soon as the update is alive.

Btw, nice score Capricornman and what a body list.

And thanks to you, Devs !

Update is live for iOS and Android! Check out this gorgeous changelog:

- FullHD screen devices are now supported for Android devices!
- Upgraded the game's engine. It now runs smoother. Oh, yeah!
- The much requested Pause button has been added for iOS! You can get on and off the bus without having to start over again!
-And for Android, you can now hit the Back button during play to Pause the game-- but wait!
- Android's Back button has even more surprises! You can now exit the app hitting the Back button from the main menu.
- Fixed some Spookling formations to prevent overlapping. Now you can make even longer Pack Kill combos. Sweet!
- 15 new Spookling formations! Just to mess with the muscle memory of our hardcore fans.

Coming very soon:
- You asked for it: Game Center Achievements!
- You also asked for it: Google Play Services support with Leaderboards and Achievements!
- You kinda expected this: A new Spookling type!
- And of course: New formations, Game Over messages and Tweets!
- And more!

Have fun! And remember-- no matter what you do, the Spooklings will eat you alive in the end!

PS. We have to go to Game Center Sandbox mode for testing, so we devs have been out of the official leaderboards for a while... But we're back again <3

Check out Attack of the Spooklings.

Good stuff!

Here's a suggestion if you're looking for things to add - a rechargeable Spookling Zapper that charges as your combo multiplier increases. At some point the charge meter hits full and then if a Spookling touches the fence, ZAP! If it happens to be the first Spookling in a formation, the whole formation gets zapped. The multiplier needed for a full charge could increase each time the zapper is used, making it harder and harder to charge as the game progresses...

Thanks for the update! I haven't checked it out yet but I'm definitely looking forward to doing so. I've re-submitted my 5 stars iTunes review; don't forget to do likewise, guys.

Man, I can not play this game on the iphone. Its so much harder to take out formations. The Ipad Mini is perfect - big enough for accurate swiping but not so big that you have to move your hand too much. I've got the iphone5, mini, and Ipad2 and the mini is the dogs danglies for this game...
