Orbius v1.1 out now! ($0.99)

Hey guys! I'm one of the developers of this game, Orbius. I did the graphics while my Brother, Ricki, did the programming. Was meant to make a thread for this when we initially released the game, but I just never got around to it unfortunately. So with v1.1 now out I figured it was about time I made one.


Description:
The concept of the game is simple. Take control of your Ship and convert all Orbs in the level from Red, to Blue. But with moving orbs, a multitude of level designs, moving obstructions and much more, it soon becomes apparent that the simple concept evolves into a highly addictive and fun game!

Features:
  • Simple & easy to use Player controls
  • Over 20 levels to choose from
  • 3 different difficulty settings
  • Online and local high-score systems that give you an "I can do better" feeling, providing much additional replayability
  • Physics engine that provides realistic interaction between objects
  • Addictive gameplay that'll provide hours of enjoyment

Changelog (v1.1):
  • Addition of an online global highscore system
  • Frequent crashing problem should now be fixed, for those who experienced the problem
  • Fixed minor graphical HUD glitches
  • Fixed the "clicking" sound the menu button would make

Marc "Kathar" Hales: Graphics, Level Design
Game powered by: Cocos 2D Engine & Chipmunk 2D Physics Engine

The Lite version of the game contains 3 levels unique to it, which allow for at least 20 minutes of gameplay. I'd definitely suggest giving at least the Lite version a try, as the screenshots and video of the full game don't do it all that much justice.

Here's a few promo codes for you all:

R6WRRKPKA6E4

XNX3WPN43FHY


Thanks for any interest guys, and all feedback is of course very welcome!

Love the premise of this game, and the very simple touch-to-move aspect works nicely. Now the game doesn't crash, but there is a weird flashing of colors occuring (like flashing light) only with this game. And i did a reinstall but it still persists. It doesn't affect the game, but it is very odd.

Very smoothly run. I died about 20 times on the first level though, and now I might have the hang of it.

Hm, very odd. Glad to hear the crashing is no longer occuring though. We'll have a look into the flashing issue. Could I just ask what device and firmware you're using?

Anyone else experiencing the flashing problem?

sorry I didn't respond sooner, I hope orbius is still an ongoing project for you guys,

I'm using an iphone 3gs and the problem occured on both 3.0 and 3.1.2 firmware.

The problem is flashing white light in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. It is very strange. I love the premise and the graphics are simple + gorgeous, I am dying for a fix because this game rocks.
