Don't Run With a Plasma Sword (iPad)

A fortune cookie was telling Cornelius about his destiny when the news of the Alien invasion struck him. Following the revelation of the cookie, he grabbed the plasma sword he had acquired through a lifetime worth of chewing gums comics savings and took the war back to the Aliens!



Hi there!

After a year in development, I'm thrilled to announce that Don't Run With a Plasma Sword is getting close to release.

The game is a runner type of game with an humoristic and retro-futuristic direction with several sci-fi references. The main features which make it stand out in this category are the depth of the level design/game mechanics, a story mode with boss fights and an upgrades system.

Since the game will be universal (with full HD support), an iPhone thread already exists, but we hope to gather comments more specific to iPad here.

Here's the first gameplay preview videos of the game being released (sorry for the low res quality):

I don't want to duplicate the other thread, so i'll just point toward the upcoming iphone games thread here.

But of course you can ask questions or comment here, especially if it is ipad related .

Generally speaking, the boss fights are almost completed. Then we'll fix the remaining glitchs on the ipad version. At this point we'll have a last 2 weeks of beta. The submission should be in 3 weeks .
