earthing - (Universal app by synapsemassage) +images +video




I hope you like what you see. If you have any ideas, critics, anything else, you're welcome to share this with me. Thanks

One more thing: If you try the game with iPad, you should hold the device in portrait orientation because bouncing up (jumping) will work much better, I advise you not to play in Portrait Upsidedown(!). This is a restriction due to hardware. I unfortunately discovered this very late in development :-( and there is not a lot developers can do about: The accelerometer is not centered but in the upper right corner causing different acceleration values in Portrait and Portrait Upsidedown due to different momentum when bouncing.

earthing free almost ready

earthing free is almost ready. The icon needs to be adapted. I guess I will able to upload it today. Couldn't figure out a (very very stupid) bug with localization and a missing semicolon, so it's a bit delayed.

momentum

The free version seems to get quite a momentum in some countries. Mostly for iPad. It's at least ranked 13 countries Top 200 All Games iPad (of which 3 countries Top 100 All Games). Really wondering why where is such a big difference between iPad and the small devices.

playing in portrait mode vs portrait upsidedown
