Default Droppyship - (by Tapnik)

Hey folks,

Check out "Droppyship", free in the app store right now:




Pilot your dropship through a series of gates in this fast and intense infinite flyer. Tap for a quick burst of lift, or drop to dodge between low gates.

Here's a gameplay video:

EDIT: The v1.1 update is out! Gamecenter leaderboards! Improved graphics and interface. More stuff!

Thanks for checking it out!
Joel

One of my favorite Flaplikes. Needs GC built in though.

Thanks! You're right, it definitely needs Gamecenter, i'm working on an update right now that will add that.

I don't know what it is, but the way the ship "flaps" just feels good. Like a paper airplane almost.

That's probably the weirdest thing I've typed all week, but there ya go.

Also it'd be nice to tap anywhere to restart.

That's great. I was going for a paper airplane feel. I hope to add a few more ships, each with different mechanics, in an update (like a 'gravity ship' that works like the gravity boots in Jetpack, for example).

Tap anywhere to restart is a great idea too. It seems obvious now that you suggested it. I'll add that.

Hey folks,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I turned off the interstitial (popup) ads in the current appstore version. They were just too annoying and intrusive to be worthwhile. I'll probably have to add them back in a much more limited way in the future, but for now there's only banner ads active.

Also in my dev build I've got GameCenter leaderboards working, as well as supporting the new iOS7 controllers (even though it's just one button, I still prefer to play with a gamepad). Going to wrap that up and submit it to apple this week or next.

For everyone who's tried the game, thanks for playing!

Hey everybody! The v1.1 update is approved by apple and live in the store! Has a bunch of improvements (including a few ideas from this thread):

* GameCenter Leaderboards and Achievements
* Get back in the action: Tap anywhere to restart game
* Challenge your friends to beat your score
* Particle Effects and Explosions
* Better user interface
* Gamepad Support
* Improved Graphics

Give it a try! Any feedback is welcome! If you like it, spread the word and leave a good review so I won't have to add an annoying "Rate this app" popup.

Thanks everyone!
Joel
