TIMELINE a FPS, coming soon

Hello,

I'm JL Calouro of Crazy Robot Games,

We have been working on a First Person Shooter game which we will submit to the App Store in a few weeks and should be released in September, it has been tested and optimized to run smoothly on an iPhone 3G.

"TIMELINE" is a FPS with an exciting story line. It's set in the year 2248 on a space station called Infinity station, a research and development station developing controversial technologies and military weapons. The problem is, Earth has lost contact with the station and sends you to investigate.

The game will feature multiple weapons to choose from, to include grenades and rocket launchers. The player's heath will slowly regenerate after getting hit, and we have included a bunch of different enemies as well as end level bosses. The player will progress through checkpoints that automatically save progression as they complete 5 levels of game play.

The player can adjust the sensitivity of the controls, choose between 3 different fire button positions, and select between Easy, Med, and Hard game play. We have also included a stat screen that counts deaths and kills. In the future, one of our updates will be to post your stats on an on-line leader board.

We are working on a video trailer that will be viewable on our website www.crazyrobotgames.com The video should be up by this weekend. We will also keep adding screenshots to the site.

Comments, suggestions, and questions are always welcome!

Players can also keep informed of our progress via our Facebook account http://www.facebook.com/pages/Crazy-...s/250789015542

Thanks,

JL Calouro,
Crazy Robot Games

Cool, that should make it look a bit hipper

If I were you, I'd put some serious work into the control scheme. Placing the fire button directly above a single digital-style pad makes little sense... perhaps consider a dual-stick solution like Dropship?

I'm also a big advocate for auto-fire (on a mobile device without buttons) when the crosshairs hover over an enemy, though many disagree on that point.

If the game is good, you should be able to get away with 3 dollars or more. Your best bet would be launching before Ngmoco's shooter - I think that game is going to overshadow a lot of other releases.

Good luck on your game!
