John Mad Run (Happymagenta) - endless scroll shooter

Hi, there!

John Mad Run is the free (completely, NO IAP) version of our upcoming Joan Mad Run, probably the project some of you heard about. John has been just approved by Apple and will be released into public very soon after the final testing.



It includes the new character John, two new exclusive locations (sewers and metro) tied into an endless overcrowded with mobs hardcore level. Get ready to taste the upcoming game for free. Shoot your way through enemies, unlock the double sharp sabre and the incredible powerful laser gun with laser flare.



Watch the video - tell what you think, especially about the SLO-MO part

Thanks for the code! This game is so much fun, its kinda like a blend of Jetpack Joyride, and Strike Force Heroes: Extraction. Really good game and runs very smooth on my iPod 5

Yes, thanks for the code! The pixels look sooo good in this. Much sleeker than the Joan beta. And the kills are way cooler now too.

Sent you the code too :-)

I don't see a reason for delaying this one for long. If all goes well, then it will go public in a few days. We made it specially to provide earlier access to a limited game version.

The full game, although lot of things are already done, needs couple more months work to add not yet done features:
- cross-platform co-op multiplayer
- character customization
- weapon customization and crafting workbench
- pet companions
- morphing into werewulf/vampires
- two more type of weapons
- even more levels/locations and enemies

Will the weapon upgrades in the full version work the same way as they do in this? Or will it be a completely different system?

Different - there will be an option to change weapon components for some more customization - for example changing color crystals in lightsaber/plasmasword or laser to change it's color to your taste and so on.

Yes, got it after posting :-) We tried arrows and buttons, but it's not that dynamic then.
