Hi all,

Check it out on facebook:

It'll be free so please download it when it come out!

Thanks,

Will.

Check your game on Facebook and its looks fun.

- Will this have Game Center integration?
- Can we used our own music from our library?
- Its freemium. Which one will we get? ads, IAP? if there's IAP. What does IAP used for?

Last one, a trailer video or gameplay trailer will be nice to attract more audience.




Hmm, I have no idea with the control. Can be tilt? Or touch?

Hi Copaeci,

Thanks for the reply.

Currently GeoBeat does not have game center integration, although this is a high priority feature for the first update. It is a score attack game in some ways so leader boards will be added.

Unfortunately you can't use music from your own library. This is a feature I would love to implement however doing so would be frought with technical challenges. I think it is unlikely this feature will appear anytime soon.

GeoBeat is actually not freemium and nor is it supported by adds. It is just free, plain and simple. My aim in releasing the game is personal satisfaction and exposure. It is, however, possible that in app purchanses will be added in future for extra levels. I find the business practices of many freemium products pretty objectionable, so if I do add any IAPs I will try to make them worth the money spent! But like I say, for now it will just be free.

I'm going to try to make a video of the game shortly so watch this space.

Thanks,

Will.

Great...
It's free and no ads... Sold.. I'll download this one once it hits App Store.
So, this game is level based? If yes, how many levels right now? Also, what kind of control do you use for this game? Thanks
Looking forward for the trailer video.

Hi Copaeci,

Yes- GeoBeat is level based. The inial release will have 3 levels and a tutorial, however you can expect more levels to be added over time. The more popular the game is the more attention I will be able to give it!

Currently all the music was written by myself. I am speaking to other musicians at the moment tho who are interested in creating for GeoBeat!

The controls of the game are purely touch based.

Thanks for your interest and I hope you like it when it comes out! Do let me know what u think!

Thanks,

Will
