Sparrow Dash by Tranzend

Hi Guys,

We'd like to introduce ourselves at Tranzend. We're a two man production team working on our first mobile game; Sparrow Dash.

Co-founded by Chai.T and Shawn.T -- we've always appreciated the art of making games in general and decided to get into the action ourselves.

We started off brainstorming a few ideas and somehow ended up with Birds & Eggs being our theme for the game. Shawn pitched the idea of catching them in a basket, I pitched the idea of using Sparrows to drop them into the canyon. We wanted this game to be more than just your average 'catch' game, so we decided to spice things up with a few power ups.

We ended up with three power ups that we think will improve your longevity in the game. These included:
The Slow Mo Egg - which decreases gravity so the eggs don't fall down as fast
The Enlarger Egg - makes your basket a little bigger for improved catching
The Magnet Egg - this is a no brainer - your basket just sucks in all the eggs

We also wanted to give our players the chance to use different basket types. So we included a shop where you can spend the eggs you've collected to buy basket skins.

We're 5 weeks into development now and already, we've got a working version on the iPhone. We don't have a release date as yet, but seeing as how smoothly our production has been going so far, it looks to be released sometime in April.

We hope you have some time to go through our facebook and twitter sites just to give us a comment and what you think of our game so far.

Here is more tidbits on our game:

THE STORY

"In a realm where Sparrows are precious beings... a mysterious disease is infecting their eggs, unfortunately once infected, the eggs become rotten and contagious;
Nova, God of everything has advised all birds to save their eggs! In a bid to save all the eggs, the birds are flying hysterically over a canyon and dropping it into the holy catcher.... IT IS YOUR JOB TO SAVE THEM ALL!!"

THE DETAILS

SPARROW DASH puts you in control of the HOLY CATCHER, tilt your device left and right to catch the Sparrows most precious eggs before they become infected.

* Includes addictive gameplay
* 3 power ups to help you Holy Catcher save the eggs
* 9 Holy Catcher skins to choose from!
* Achievements / Goals

We're getting close to the final phase of SPARROW DASH game development. Will keep you guys posted on future updates and definitely announce the long awaited release date so you guys can enjoy this exciting new game!

Sparrow Dash wallpaper

Hi guys,

Thanks for having a look at our thread, we at Tranzend really appreciate it.

We're almost near completion and we're just testing the beta at the moment and ironing all the bugs out.

I've made a SPARROW DASH wallpaper for those that have iPhone 4's. If you want any modifications, or even an iPad version, feel free to ask me
