Default Star Hound - (by Kieffer Bros.) [Universal]




I beta tested this and enjoyed it. The game play is quite different from the usual faire from this quality developer (awesome matching / puzzle games), but it is quite interesting.

Looks good, I'm always interested in a new endless runner.
@slewis is there a shop to buy power-ups? GC-achievements?

So, this is an "endless swinger"?

The game has both swinging and flying and running segments and it is endless. It has been a few weeks, since I last played it. I never connect up to Game Center in testing because I do not know how to use the "sandbox" test account and I do not recall whether this one has Game Center support or not. I do not remember there being any in-game shops. Mainly you can grab fuel refills along the way. The game, at least when I tested it was pretty bare bones, but the play mechanic worked really well and was fun. The developer mentioned they will add more features in the future based on feedback and sales.

Default Game Impressions

This is very much unfinished. Early beta stage at best. Had it been released for free for some reason, you could just about give it a pass, but charging for something in this state, particularly coming from a supposedly reputable developer, just feels obnoxious.

surprising to see an endless runner type game from a dev that typically does puzzle games. but considering how high quality their other works are, i bet this game will be awesome.

The game doesn't like to be Kieffer Bros' style.

Umm, did Kiefer fire BOTH their art AND business director?

I was excited to see Kieffer Bros as their games are some of my favorites. I am not into swinging or endless anything so I am disappointed.
