UPDATE 11-13-13

Hi there folks!

So I've hit some delays with old Apple

Bad news: I have to push back to the 21st.
Good News: This means the first update which adds some cool new stuff will come out very very shortly after launch.

This might all be serendipitous anyhow, I didn't know if I was able to launch this week I'd be going up against Oceanhorn!
I really wanna play it, but I don't want to try (and fail) to compete with it

Here is a new review of the game in the meantime:

I'll have video shortly, but SteamPunks is basically if MegaMan X combined with the world of Steampunk.
I learned a lot about fine tuning platformers while developing HEAVY sword, and I think this game puts HS to shame So I'm excited for you guys to be able to try it out! (Not to say I dislike HS of course, I still think it's a fun game)

More details soon.
Feedback and questions always welcomed

I saw HS, and I'd never guess this is from the same developer. It looks quite good. Any more information on the gameplay?

@coderkid

This is very much inspired by MegaMan X, so you have your basic run and jump, Dash, wall slide, wall jump.
6 main stages with 6 bosses, levels can be played in any order.
(There are also smaller sub levels and mini bosses)

7 main weapons, 6 of which are unlocked by defeating bosses.
with those weapons you'll be able to access different parts of levels to unlock secrets! (replay value!)

Then you can upgrade your standard gun by locating hidden parts scattered throughout all the levels. shot faster, reload faster, increased damage. then other cool gun add-ons which can be turned on/off, "Weaver shot" etc.

I will keep this IAP FREE!
I'm was considering including IAP for lazy people who don't want to unlock things by playing, but it's built just like the classics, if you explore and put in the time you can get all the secrets unlocked without the all powerful $0.99
what are peoples thoughts on this type of IAP? a big part of me doesn't even want to even have a cheat to win option included. do you guys like having the option to get all the power-ups without playing?

Thanks again!
More details soon

The pixel art looks great, and really has the look of the old retro stuff like mega man, rather than the re-imagined new school pixel art. Looking forward to it!

Personally, I never (or rarely) act on IAP options, but for the casual gamer, IAP may be desired. I don't think there's a problem with putting IAP in it, my usual issue with it is if it's constantly shoved in my face like "BUY STUFF!"

Wow. I'm in love with the pixel art, the palette, the Mega Man approach, all of it. I really can't wait to play this.

As for IAP, I don't usually use it unless I'm doing it to reward the dev, or buying major content. Cheats? No thanks.
