Rocket Gold, upcoming caveflyer

Publisher Announcement:

"Rocket Gold" is a cave-flying game, complete with thrust and inertia. You having to tow around a rather massive weight behind your ship, which makes flying and shooting rather trickier than your regular asteroids flight mechanics!

Looks really fun.
How is the mission/story portion of the game structured?
How many missions are there?
Will there be achievements of sorts or a rating system based on how fast you complete a mission?
Are there leaderboards, if so, will there be global leaderboards?
Are you planning any future content/feature updates?

There are fifteen missions spread across three planets of increasing difficulty. After that, the levels are duplicated but with an anti-gravity orb to collect. These levels can be very tricky indeed!

High scores are tracked per game and per level, and you are rewarded for speed of level completion.

Levels are locked initially, but quickly unlock to the point where you can choose to play any level, so you don't have to replay the initial levels you've mastered in order to try again at the mission causing you grief :-)

15 missions doesn't sound like a heck of a lot.
You answered most of my questions except the global leaderboards and future plans of content/feature updates. If their are global leaderboards, that gives players a reason to go back and re-play levels, which essentially adds longevity to the game.
What will be the asking price of the game?

I don't care much for games like this, but the first 30-45 seconds of that demo were hysterical - thanks for a good laugh

There's 15 missions, with normal and anti-gravity for each. So in a way, 30 missions. A somewhat related game, ngmoco's Dropship, has 18 levels. So 15-30 sounds reasonable.

Currently there are no global score tables. As for the future, no comment :-)

Price: $3.99.

PointOfLight: glad you liked it!!
