Hello everybody!

I have used my spare time after work to try out Sprite Kit and create a multiplayer game. It is still in a quite early stage but I would like you to give me some feedback. Mainly for lag issues or gesture controls or gameplay.

Any feedback would be very valuable

Game: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fog-of-fear/id669922905?mt=8

About the controls:
Move: Just hold the finger either side of the screen.
To jump: Swipe diagonally in the facing direction.
To attack up: Swipe horizontally in the facing direction.
To attack down: Swipe diagonally down in the facing direction.
To block: Touch the screen with one finger first and hold. And then do the same with second finger. If the second finger is higher than first, it will block upper attacks. If it's lower it will block lower attacks.

Thank You in advance,
Timo Kallaste

I know it's an iPhone game but I only have my iPad 2 right now. :P With that in mind, I've got a few things to say.

I can block with one finger by pushing my finger all the way down or rolling it a little.
Landing after a jump is really bouncy!
Target on the left. Swiping from the right half of the screen to the left half makes your character dash backwards while attacking the left side. Is that intended? If so, then cool, but there should be a lunge attack too. EDIT: backward distance was more than double. Bug? EDIT2: holding down your finger after that large swipe causes your character to moon walk endlessly

Matchmaking constantly goes on even while in the background. I swapped back to the game while typing this in the TA app and found myself in a match with (null). :P I quit and it returned me to the practice screen but everything was frozen. Quit did nothing.

Edit: you didn't mention holding your finger down after a jump swipe made you ninja roll! 8D

Thank you very much echoen for trying it out and finding some new bugs I wasn't aware of.

Actually this swithcing the facing direction in the middle of the attack was not intended. I will definietly consider doing it and making it as a lunge attack.

You probably won't find any matches unless more people have the app open. I played with the dev earlier and I found it pretty fun. It's a sword duel where you go at each other a few rounds. But like he said, it's still in the really early stages. I sent him some feedback.

Yes, this is the problem right now because there is no userbase. If you could try it with your friend or write me PM to try it at the same time
