Wandake Announes Robokill 2!

Hey guys, Wandake is just about set to release Robokill 2, the highly-anticipated follow-up to one of the hottest games of 2010. We're introducing a bunch of new weapons, 25 new enemy types and 12 missions spread over three episodes. That translates into over 600 rooms to explore full of enemies, loot and mayhem. We're putting out a video next week, but here are a few screens to hold you over for now.

Enjoy, you're the FIRST to see the new game, we haven't even shared this stuff with the gaming media yet.

Cool, I did finish the first game, but then there wasn't much more to do with it.

Hmm looks like part 1? Why again the huge border?

The first Robokill has never left my ipad, so I'm definitely going to pick this one up. Is there a release date and a price?

Hey folks!

First up, thanks for the support for Robokill! We're very excited to bring you the sequel and are so happy to see the fan support!

To answer a few questions that have been posed; we're hoping to release the game by the end of the month and we're still debating the price. If anyone has suggestions we'd be happy to hear them. Just know that unfortunately "free" isn't an option, sorry.

There was a question about the screen border, and the main reason we do that is so that the controls don't overlap the play space. We want to create a buffer where you can stick your thumbs and not be covering up any of the gameplay. Nothing worse than not being able to see an enemy or pit because your finger was in the way.

We'll also be posting the video in this thread once it's ready so keep your peepers peeled for that one!

This is the iPad version, right? Is it basically a sequel that you expect to sell to people who've played the first game, or is it like a self-contained replacement for the first game? It seems to me that if you're selling it to people who've already played through the first game, then $2.99 would be a reasonable price.

Hey guys, thanks for the support! Here's the link to a quick teaser trailer to get you even more excited and give you a first glimpse of the game in action. We're also hoping to have a more in-depth gameplay walkthrough soon, so I'll be sure to post that as well.
