Wouldn't 2.59NZ be 1.99US? Regardless looks good and comes from super crossfire devs so I'm on board

Hmmm... seems like a mix between Silverfish and Tilt to Live.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Fireball Special Edition

Hey guys,

I put the game on sale for $0.99 for the first week of availability. It will normally be $1.99 March 22nd and beyond. I think I got it on sale before most people would have had a chance to buy it.

And yes, it is sort of like Tilt to Live, except it uses touch controls. I made the original version (for XBLIG) well before I knew TtL existed, but I was influenced to make the game by Geometry Wars 2's Pacifism Mode.

Major differences from the XBLIG version:
* Survival mode is all new.
* Achievements added.
* Meltdown mode instead of boost (slow down the action vs. go really fast).
* Bombs don't kill you if you run into them. Adds more strategy to how you can use them, makes game less frustrating too.
* UI is completely customized to iOS.
* And lots of smaller tweaks/changes.

(I'll have a couple new videos up later today.)

Let me know what you guys (honestly) think. Since this game is self-published, it's a bit easier to make small updates/tweaks based on feedback. Hope you enjoy it! There will be many more iOS games coming this year from Radiangames.
