all codes gone

After looking at your video on youtube, my only suggestion is to have a different background for the roach to run around on...like a desk or kitchen counter.

Good job on the roach animation. Have you ever seen the movie Joe's Apartment? Check it out for inspiration if you haven't .

Aww missed all the promo codes
I think more of a cartoon style would work for the cockroach and the ball/water/food
Maybe the menus can have a menu [like a drop down menu but it goes up?]
Different food, different ways to play?
Again like a post earlier, maybe a desk background.
Maybe you could name your cockroach?
Use wifi connectivity to connect to other ipods to meet other cockroaches.

wow Glowz how many tips!

More background and food are on roadmap for the version 1.1,
for the name of cockroach and multiplayer we have to wait for os3.0 and new version of middleware we use.
Anyway good tips thx to all.
