(playable preview!) One Spear Savage -- Arcade Arena Action [Universal]

One Spear Savage is an action arena spear-em-up. Fight a bunch of savages on randomly generated maps with JUST ONE SPEAR.

The game was originally built for the recent Ludum Dare game jam (#28: You Only Get One) -- in December 2014. Between festive celebrations and a bit of downtime from bigger projects, we've polished it up and it's being submitted to the App Store late January - it'll be available as a paid universal app.

On launch it'll have 3 maps (Jungle, Snowstorm and Volcano), with two versions of each and 3 game modes (Death Match, Capture the Flag and Death Race), with Game Center leaderboards for each.

Go get your spear, savage!

The game will be released 27th February, and will be $1 for the launch week. $3 thereafter. More about the game at the One Spear Savage website.

Is there a single player mode? How is multiplayer with international players? As an example, Fright Fight is impossible for competitive play in the Philippines.

Echoen -- it's all single player. Player vs spawned enemies/savages. Depending on game mode, you go up against a different number of them -- and they respawn on different timers/conditions.

MikeNintendo -- me too though it won't be v1. If we can get some traction though we'll be trying it out to see how it works... I think it'll work really well on certain game modes.

Ah cool. Sounds like something I'd play. I'll be watching this!

Update: there's a web-based (Unity plugin required) playable preview of the game available at http://game.36peas.com/onespearsavage/oss-preview.html -- this will be up for at least the next week or two while the app's in review. It's effectively complete, but won't show progress against map & mode achievements, nor will it show you global high scores. Enjoy
