Big Head Gunner //Beta Testers Needed

Update: Big Head Gunner is now officially available for download... http://bit.ly/1vzwJhy

Update: Big Head Gunner will be available for download on November 30, 2014! Also changed the video below, check the last post by eBattalion in this thread for the preview video.

We're finally near finished our latest project and need some feedback! Check out the preview below and read on for details.

Big head Gunner is a platformer with emphasis on content, variety, and most of all controls and level design. We feel we've achieved unprecedented platformer controls, never before experienced on pure touch. We are calling this Precision Touch. Of course we will refine all aspects of the game based on community feedback.

Interested in the beta build of the game? It runs on any device with iOS 7.0 or greater, that includes iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices. Send us your UDID in private message or to info@ebattalion.com and we will send you the beta build in a few days. If you need help locating your UDID or installing the beta build shoot us an email.

Love the art in this, man. It reminds me of old games from my youth on the Sega Genesis, really fun and cartoony.

Big Head Gunner and the Acorn Kingdom //Newsletter

After two years in development, eBattalion is finally showing off the first ever preview of Big Head Gunner! The game is a platformer set to break new ground in touchscreen controls. Gunner, also known as Big Head Gunner, is the hero of the Acorn Kingdom. After hearing that the evil King Chameleon kidnapped the prince, Gunner bravely set out on a rescue mission.

Precision Touch and Other Awesome Features
Big Head Gunner is a modern iOS game but also a totally retro 2D platformer. It brings the complex and accurate control systems of games like Super Mario Brothers to touch screen, without the use of an onscreen controller. This has never been done before on pure touch, and the result is an amazingly playable platformer!

Primary features include...

# Precision Touch
# Handcrafted levels
# Expert level design
# 9 magical worlds
# 36 unique levels with dozens of sub levels
# 180 stars to find and collect
# Dozens of other collectables
# 9 adrenaline pumping boss battles
# 9 Super Fun Bonus Games
# Fluid HD animation running at 60 FPS

Save the Acorn Kingdom from King Chameleon and rescue Prince Akoki. Over 50 hours of gameplay guaranteed! Big Head Gunner will be officially released in late November for all iOS devices, including iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. In the meantime check out the preview trailer.
