OmnomBot - the carnivorous robot by Milkman Games

Update: Added short gameplay video preview:


Hey guys,

I'm pretty new here but I wanted to share the game I'm working on (first iOS game.) It's about a hungry robot named OmnomBot who doesn't want to eat his vegetables. One-button, fast action, high-scoring game.

Here's some screenshots to check out! I look forward to getting involved with the TA community.







And a little something meaty:


This is a special tomato powerup:


The purple hula hoop with white polka dots is actually a broccoli proof forcefield.

hehe, very cool.
I really enjoy that full and rich prerendered 3d look you have going on there.
But I'm wondering they the robot itself is a big edgy around the top parts.
Would look so much better if it was rounded and highpolygonal as the rest looking.
But very polished quality you have so far. Interest exists for gameplay information or videos

Thanks Acumen!

Yeah, I like to make things kind of look somewhere between pixar and squishy claymation.

Good catch about the edges- I'll fix that up.

Video coming soon!

That is exactly the look I love too, however fail to realize due to lack of rendering or material knowledge and overall lazyness
The shiny parts are just enough to give away that "plastic look". Consider me being jealous

Made a video of some wave 1 gameplay (and so you can see what happens when you eat a broccoli- uh ohs!!)

Vegetables are healthy!

It looks like a fun game though.

Haha, thanks, TheCatsMeow, now you know my secret!

Thanks Photics. They are very healthy, OmnomBot is just ornery. He has a vegan cousin, Ted, I'll show you soon though - he loves his veg!!
