The Wave [Universal]

Dear TouchArcade Community,

while i was developing my next Title "Forgotten Treasures", i came to the idea to port my Web Html5 game "The Wave" for iOS Devices.

It nearly finished currently working on the last parts & also waiting for new Game Music & Sounds.

If you want to test it you can play the web version here:
The Wave - Newgrounds.com

PS: The iOS Port will have more Features inGame and the name will not be "The Wave" because it was already taken .

The gameplay concept is really unique excellent work! However, the presentation/polish needs a lot of work if it's going to succeed in the App Store. What did you use to port this? Ejecta?

Thanks, yes using Ejecta but planning to write the inner live natively to avoid Score Hacks or something similar , only need Ejecta for rendering ^^

Well these screens are take after 1-2 days of development, if you have any tips for better style or polishing just let me know it.

It will also be free! ( maybe with ads but not sure... )

Alternativ Style

Maybe this is a more polished design?

Making all to shapes of a single color with different depth...

Ejecta Failed in rendering performance -.-

While i was debugging Meta Wave with my iPhone 5 I have decided to test it with my other devices and was shocked!

I was thinking that Ejecta is rendering in a performant way but the fps dropped extremely with few draw calls, this why Meta Wave will take a while until release. I have started developing my Engine Leaf2D for it to replace Ejecta with my very own engine ^^.

Meta Wave (via Ejecta Rendering) FPS:

iPhone 5 - 60 FPS
iPad Mini - 40-45 FPS
iPod Touch 4g - 12FPS

Couldn't play the Newgrounds version (arrows keys kept moving the screen and not the ball). Is your game on any other sites, would like to try it

You can try this link but it is only a embed from newgrounds ^^.

Try clicking into the canvas maybe it wasn't focused?

Running throught level? I think it need a cool sound design, because that can make it better than.
