Default Scream`N`Run - Voice controlled jump`n`run game!

wow, apple works a lot faster than i expected; the game is in the appstore now!
i write this at my girlfriends computer, so i can`t post any screenshots or anything else.

back to the game:
the name is Scream`N`Run itunes link and you may guess which kind of game it is?! yes, a voice controlled jump`n`run! you have to scream to make your zombie jump.
i think, the game deserve the claim "most annoying game in the world" .

most people who saw the game loved it (expect our betatester, who ask ALL for a touchcontroll ^^).
so be warned: you really need tolerate neighbors/girlfriends/parents etc.

btw. we thought, that we were the first with a voice controll game in the store (that`s the reason, why i didn`t post the name or any other informations about the game), but imnosuperman told us, that there are different games with voice controll in the store. i was really a little bit depressed, because we had the idea and the basic programming in february and in march, Pah! reached the store. ah, never mind, that`s life.
i just mention it, so you don`t think, that scream`n`run is a clone.

ok, more tomorrow. it`s late here in germany.
and thanks again to our betatesters.

for more informations or promocontest, please use our facebooksite pink bunny games

Easily!

Most!
Annoying!
Game!
In!
The!
World!

Hehe, I was lucky enough to beta this (briefly )

The animation is top notch, and the gamplay is literally you screaming into the microphone to get the zombie to jump over the rabbits. You lose body parts if you fail to jump over them, all the way down to your head bouncing along! Fear not - sometimes you find spare body parts to rebuild yourself a bit.

Simple, but fun. Especially at parties. At least my daughter thought so. (She's two. )

thanks for the video!

we wanted to make a youtubevideo too.
but we didn`t have any time (oh, but we have great ideas for the video. same old story…).
and as i wrote, apple was too fast with the review this time. you see, it`s apple`s fault, that we haven`t a video.

too sad, that we can`t hear your screams. it`s really funny to look at people playing that game.

hm, as i watched the video, i notice a small bug: when your head`s rolling at the end of the game, there appears still new bunnies. we thought, that we have fixed that. well it`s not a problem, but things like that makes me mad (ok, i`m just the graphic-designer of this game. it`s sebi`s fault! yes! this damned coders! just kidding, he did a really good work).

nevertheless we need a update!
we also have some nice little ideas for the update.
how about a zombiebunny as a friend for our little zombie?

arg, stop talking about updates while i have so much work to do…

btw. you can still get a promo, if you follow our facebooksite.

I already liked your art in Blood Fever but these zombies seem to be even cooler.

I am wondering if it is possible to cheat the game with an amp, it would longer the life of my lungs.

Hello,

We took some precautions to make this not too easy :-)
What makes you fly is not only the noise but also how the noise changes over time. Technically speaking the uplift is a function of the first derivative of the sound level :-)
So a constant noise just doesn't make you fly all the time, gravity drags you down automatically and then you can jump off again. If you control the game by a random sound source (like music coming out of your amp) you are likely to jump off at the wrong time and then there is a good chance that you land on top of a bunny who rips you apart and there is nothing you can do about it. This provides also for some good fun if you watch someone playing it and you shout at the wrong moments to sabotage his gameplay :-)

Regards,
Sebastian Mecklenburg
(Programmer of this game)
