What you think about this game?

Hi guys!

I'm on the final polishing stage of my new game Brush Master and I was planning on releasing it next month for IOS, Android and W8P.

But before releasing the game, It would be amazing if you could play it and let me know you thoughts about it. I have seen great feedback in this forum and though on giving it a try!

A demo of the game can be played on the web browser at:
http://inter-illusion.com/games/brus...sh-master-demo

Here is some more information and screenshots:

[EDIT] Gameplay Preview:

The game is going to be free for the first 6-9 levels and with options to buy the Room Expansion Pack and Asia Expansion Pack. Both packs add several Characters and Levels.

Also, at all times you can join other online players and cooperate to beat 3 missions that are changed every 1-3 days (similar to the Clashmobs in Infinite Blade).

Any feedback will be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
Frank

Hi!
Wow! I loved that game!
I remember the old times when I was at the university and we organized tournaments with the other room-mates!! Lot of good memories!

I couldn't find any similar game in any mobile store so Brush Master is trying to expand the painting with a full campaign, clashmobs, obstacles, bosses, etc!

I hope you like it and if you have any feedbacks it will be awesome!

Thanks,
Frank

I found it incredibly frustrating to control and gave up.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

Really?
Did you tried using the mouse or just tried to move by using the left/right key?

The default control is by using the mouse. Once you start playing you just move the mouse to where you want the brush to go and it goes there.
No need to click or anything, just move the mouse and the brush will follow it.

Can you please, let me know if you feel that even the mouse feels wrong or if you didn't realize that mouse movement was an option?

Maybe I should add small tutorial indicating that?

Thanks,
Frank

I used the mouse and tried the keys a bit after I didn't like the mouse.

I found the mouse just wasn't really fun. It was just frustrating for me.

Hi,
Thanks a lot for everyone who has played the game!
I have been using GameAnalytics to collect the progression and the score accomplished in each level. Hopefully that will help me balance a bit more the campaign! Thanks!!

BTW, I was planning on using a reduced version of this video for the itunes preview. Any feedbacks on whatever the video shows the good about the game or if I should replace any section will be awesome.

I tried the browser version and here's some feedback:

Seven power-up icons are shown, but it’s not clear what they mean or what the different colors mean.

There's quite a few English translation issues. For example:
- “More cover in time” doesn’t make sense.
Perhaps: "Paint more than your opponent!"

- “When the time rans out. Wins the player that has painted the most“
Should say: “When the time runs out, the player who has painted the most wins!”
Or: "Paint the most to win!"

- It says: “An explotion of paint splashing the canvas”
Should say: “explosion”

- During the game, the word “Social” appears. This is a strange word to display. Not sure what it means.

- “Random splashes into the entire canvas. It boost your color and its hard to erase.”
Should say: “ Randomly splashes across the canvas. It boosts your color and is hard to erase”

“Loose and you will slide back”
Should be: “Lose and you will slide back”

Hi,
Thanks for the feedback! I corrected those phrases!

Also, the powerups were meant to be discovered one every couple levels while playing the campaign. So that you get used to what it does, how to use it properly, etc.
But when playing the local battle, they are all shown from the very beginning. Its true that could be a bit confusing. Thanks for pointing that up. I will try adding a tooltip when hovering the icons!

Thanks,
Frank
