MonsterKill from Origin8 - featuring the cutest carnage ever. Submitted!

Hi all,

Do you like monsters? Do you like killing monsters? If so, I think we might have a game for you...


MonsterKill from Origin8 (Sentinel, Car Mania) has been submitted to Apple and is now in approval. Here are the highlights of the app description:
Quote:
They’re cute, they’re cheeky – you just want to squeeze the life out of the little monsters!

Hordes of tiny terrors have broken free of their chains and are running amok! Use cunning touchscreen gestures to summon a variety of spells as you battle against these classic mini-monsters. Don’t let them tear down your defenses, or you’ll have horror havoc on your hands!

* Slice and dice them - cut them in two with the cut spell!
* Summon lightning - give them a shocking experience!
* Turn up the heat by casting fireballs - watch 'em burn!
* Need to slow them? Sculpt an ice block and stun them!

•Simple gesture system to summon spells
•Stunning characters, animation, backgrounds & fx
•Multiple game modes: Normal, Endless and Onslaught
•With full online high scores and unlockable achievements using OpenFeint.
Here's a closer look at MonsterKill's super-satisfying gestural spellcasting! Simply draw a symbol as depicted in image A, and the chosen spell zaps the unliving heck out of the critters, as seen in image B:


As you progress you'll earn upgrade tokens - spend them at the shop to customise your powers:


We expect MonsterKill to launch at the $0.99/£0.59/€0.79 price point. Enjoy!

Neat!

Reminds me of joke.

There's this guy who has a monster, and one day someone comes knocking on his door, trying to sell magazine subscriptions. Guy thinks to himself about how annoying these type of people are, invites the man in and issues the commands, "Monster rise! Monster forward! Monster kill!" and it did.

Couple of days later, his landlord shows up asking for overdue rent. Remembering how well things last time he invites the landlord in on the pretext of getting his checkbook, but again says, "Monster rise! Monster forward! Monster kill!"

"Wow!" the man starts talking to himself, "This is great! Now all I have to do to avoid anything is to say, Monster rise! Monster forward! Monster kill!"

Rendering and exporting the video has taken a little longer than planned. Edit: So of course it goes up 30 seconds after I post this...
