Waste Paper Basket Ball Diaries - WPBBD

The teaser video is out!!!

Youtube link | Pop Up


So... this is my second game for the iPhone / iPod Touch.

It's basically an office basketball game. It's in the same vein as PaperToss, but I tried to put my own spin. In PT you flick the ball, but it only registers angle not power. Mine does both. This makes things a little more complex, but you can also be more accurate. I also have a lot more ways to score. You get points by shooting memos into a basket or inbox. You can get even more points by shooting your work assignments into a coworkers inbox. Here are some screen shots and the description. Hope you like it.







Time to start slacking!

Sometimes sitting at the back of the office is like sitting in the back of a classroom. Simply crush incoming memos into balls and make some quick imaginary points by shooting them into the surrounding waste paper baskets. Better yet, crush your incoming assignments and get them into a co-workers inbox. They'll have to do the work for you! Bounce one off a coworkers head for some consecutive bonus points or hit the AC for a wind multiplier. Now you're making some real imaginary points.

The axe is probably going to get you sooner or later. When it does come submit your imaginary points to an online leaderboard!
atures:
  • 3d environment/camera
  • interactive 2d cutout characters
  • 3d paper crushing action
  • online scoreboard (OpenFeint: One of the few that supports unity )
  • intuitive crush, shoot and you don't have to flick if you don't want to controls.
  • wind
  • a guy sleeping
  • an angry co-worker
  • uh... cute posters with cats

Oh, it's under review right now and it'll be 99 cents.

I INSIST you by my game and not PaperToss!

Thanks for the heads up eggzbacon. I'm glad you like the graphics. I just don't understand who wouldn't want to spend 99 cents on a game that included this motivational poster?



Your desire for this game just went up a couple notches, didn't it!

lol@apppanther suggesting a graphical makeover. All his entries in the iDrop Dead competition seem to be intentionally aimed at making the game look worse.

I should have a gameplay video out soon. I know it's hard to convey the gameplay only through screens.


Any ideas about promoting the game? I'm pretty new to TA. Do devs start WIP threads?

one reason i never upgraded from paper toss is i felt it had no character so this looks great

besides that a thread is good enough and if you dont have one a twitter account is usually nice to have

Take a look at this link. It has top 30 sites where one can promote his apps.

cool, thanks! I'll start submitting once the gameplay video is done. It should be soon.

I've put up a large version of the motivational poster. You can now download it and use it as a wallpaper.
