Hello,

today I released my new game: "FlyCraft Herbie: Crazy Machines" for most mobile platforms (iOS, Android and BlackBerry).

Your goal in the game is to help little Herbie fly his crazy flying machines through the forest without running into the bamboo trees and crashing.

Herbie is the coolest male ladybug in the forest, and flies on turbine and rocket powered vehicles, collecting coins, gems and more gas to keep flying. This skill based game will keep the player engaged with its numerous vehicles and endless gameplay.

Below you can watch the trailer I put together:



These are some of the reviews I am getting until now:

So this is actually really cool. The rocket mechanics feel really solid and fun. The only problem is a pretty harsh energy system preventing you from playing more than a few minutes.

Thank you! You are probably right, I will be tuning that in new updates. It's a little hard on new players right now. Once you start flying for more than a minute in conjunction with the gems you collect, it becomes more balanced...

People are starting to post some really cool flight over at Everyplay:

I'm totally curious how far i could get in this game but unfortunately i ran out of energy in the tutorial, rofl, in the tutorial. Sorry devs, worst strategy to sell your game, imho. Deleted.
Think about to get rid of this crappy energy system and i would buy it the very next minute.

I don't understand what you mean exactly, as this is the game. You don't fly until you crash. You fly until you crash or run out of fuel (and therefore crash again). It's not about just flying, but flying economically so you reach the next fuel. I guess it would be much easier for Armstrong to have infinite fuel when landing the lunar module! Better machines will have better fuel efficiency also (it's one of the specs they have, along with weight and strength). So as you unlock better machines you can play differently.

But anyway the point is that there is no need to be upset or sorry about my selling strategy. I make games I love to play. And this game I love to play. That is all!
