Jumpin Monster - Beta Testers Requested

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for beta testers to my upcoming game. It's a retro platform jumping game and I'm looking for anyone that has devices that can run iOS 8 and above.

Here is a little gameplay video:

So far game seems to run fine. A few questions thou.

1. Game Center is currently disable? Because it said am not sign in when I tap on it. Just wanna be sure it's not a bug.

2. I kinda feel that the touch response sorta need a little improvement? You need double tap to jump to next platform but there are times where it does not register my 2nd tap and at times i do feel like there seems to be some input lag once awhile thou the FPS looks fine running at 60fps

Thanks kopicha for taking the time to pay test my game.

1. Game Center still hooks to the sandbox. If you don't have a sandbox account it won't connect. If you need one I can create one for you. Let me know.

2. I got the same feedback from other testers. I'v changed the way the touch is handled and I think( I hope) the controls feel a little bit more responsive now.

I will be submitting a new build to testflight in a couple of days.

nice to hear. The Game Center thing is not important. Just trying to test it for you but since it is not working, so I thought I should let you know. Since you explained that I think it's fine. But if you wanna create one for me to test out that is fine too. Looking forward to your next build to see if I can do better score

@kopicha

Just realized that you can login into GameCenter Sandbox yourself. Logout and when login again you'll see the option to login into the sandbox.

You mean logout from where? Within the game or on my device?

Much better with the new update. But think the newly added instruction screen at the start of the game very distracting thou is will auto disappear after few sec.

I think you've nailed it with the new version. The control lag is totally gone and the game now feels fast and responsive. I do agree with kopicha that the instruction screen gets in the way for those first few seconds, but it's not a big problem. You've got a great little casual game here. I've just been at the dentist and it was the perfect game to tap away at for a few minutes in the waiting room.
