Tappy Lander! Tricks, Traps, Trailer!

Hello everyone!

Since 2011, Eggroll Games has been making kids apps for iOS. However, this year we're ready to branch out and make the kinds of games that we personally love.

I'd like to announce our first non-kids app.

You can find updates on Tappy's progress, read my dev diaries or ask questions at the Tappy Lander page on Facebook

I'm also happy to answer your questions here and will update this thread as much as possible.

Thanks for supporting us!

I just wanted to update everyone on the game features. I will do my best to continue updating this post. The game is coming along and we are expecting to submit within a week or two. You can also keep up to date by subscribing to the dev diary or liking Tappy Lander on Facebook


Endless gameplay! Cash in your points to level up at the end of each run or go for a big score by risking it! One wrong move and you lose everything!

Trick landings! Use the game physics to slide or bounce your way to big bonus points!

Traps and Pickups! Maneuver through random trap screens to survive another run and pick up hard to reach items for more points.

Disks and Rocket Styles! Collect all the disks, each with their own unique message. Unlock new rocket styles when you level up!

Game Center! Leaderboards for high score, biggest bounce and longest slide! Achievements too!

Here is Tappy Lander Dev Diary #1. It's about why I chose the name "Tappy Lander".

In other news, I am currently adding new ship designs. There are rocket designs inspired by Mass Effect, Star Trek, NASA, The 80s, etc. that you will unlock by leveling up.

Today I added more achievements and I'm experimenting with adding a "Best Run" Game Center leaderboard that tracks each landing one at a time. This gives you another high score to shoot for.

Just added a fifth entry to the dev diary about physics and tricks where I talk about the physics engine, emergent gameplay tricks and achievements.
