Timmy Top Hat Escape From Disco Tech City - Beta Testers Wanted



Hey everyone,

I'm working towards wrapping up my next game called Timmy Top Hat Escape From Disco Tech City. It's a runner and you have to avoid disco balls of various sizes by jumping on different platforms. Timmy just wants to DANCE!

The bottom platform gives you 5 points and it also fills up your Top Hat Bonus gauge. When that fills up a colorful top hat appears that will make you temporarily invincible and turn on a bunch of color and music in the city. You can smash all the disco balls now for an EPIC GROOVY BONUS!

The middle and top platforms add to your existing points called GROOVE, sort of like a multiplier. If you miss one of the middle or top platforms it will reset your GROOVE.

If you can mange to keep you GROOVE from reseting and also collect the TOP HAT BONUS you can earn points quick. DY-NO-MITE!

I'd like to have a few people beta test Timmy if anyone is interested? Help me workout the final bugs, provide input - stuff like that. PM me with TestFlight info if interested. I'll also include you in the credits.

Thanks!
Matt

This looks really cool. I'll pick it up when released. I'm not into beta testing, but congrats on getting your game up and running

Just tried it out. One main thing I noticed is that the far right and left sides of the screen don't respond when I tap it (I'm on an iPhone 5). You may already be aware of this, but nevertheless, decided to inform you regardless.

Will keep you posted for more bugs/suggestions.

Great feedback! I wasn't aware - I had only tested on iPhone 4 and iPad.

Thanks!

I believe I may have found another bug as well: if you press the home button after playing the game and go do something else, then open the game back up, the in-game music won't play unless you restart the actual app.

Thanks for the catch! Keep them coming if you find anything else.
