Well, maybe you need more infos about the game:

We have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GrubGame
A Twitter account: @GrubGame

The game is produced by Pixowl (www.pixowl.com)


We would like to finish it, and release it around the end of March.

So it's like classic Snake (collect pellets to get longer) + Tilt To Live (collect power-ups, avoid enemies)? Nice art style too

And you might want to just include the beta test link in the post, so people can just click on the link.

Yes, the tutorial is not implemented yet, to explain score mechanism.

But basically, when you eat an apple you get <your size> points.

An enemy can cut you or kill wether he touches the tail or the head.

We love Tilt to Live.

I'm really enjoying this. I do love my high-score games that provide you with short bursts of gameplay where a single mistake costs you everything.

A lot of what I'd like to address is most likely already on the way seeing as how this is currently an alpha build but I wouldn't be much of a tester if I didn't ask I guess!

Will there be Game Centre integration? I know this will be vital to some, especially in a high-score chaser and I'm also sure it's on the list, but I thought I'd check. Always good to have a bit of competition!
I noticed the coins I'm collecting are adding up in the menu so I assume there'll be some kind of shop. Are there any ideas on what that will include, whether practical or aesthetic?

I'd quite like it if the game opened up onto a menu rather than immediately into the game, though again, I'm sure that's alpha specific.

I absolutely love the graphical style though, it's like a cartoon but animated smoothly and crisply. It definitely lulls you into a false sense of security as the game can be pretty difficult, especially with the pigs that are out for blood!

Cheers for letting me beta test; looking forward to seeing the game grow!

Thank you for the feedback!

Yes we'll have a Game Centre integration. As well as Facebook.
Both are optional of course.

As you progress through the levels, you'll unlock new power ups.
Then, in the shop, you'll be able to pay to upgrade them.

We'll sell more (optional) content also, like costumes (for your friends to see)...

Thanks a lot for helping us!

We should add the names of all our testers in the credits.
