Bold going with a higher price tag with your first game. Looks good. Wouldn't mind seeing a video of it first though

Thanks! I added a video a player made which should hopefully boost the game.

Does anybody else have anything to say about the game? Buying it and/or telling others would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I purchased it yesterday and was reviewing it. I see you dropped the price. Do you plan to give the people who paid 3 times that some special unlock or something?

There are issues that need to be addressed before I would recommend it.

1) sometimes the character will turn backwards and it's impossible to turn back.

2) the auto aiming is way way way off. Why is it targeting the boxes? Why not let me click the target if it is obstructed and then it doesn't change targets unless I click another target or the target dies.

3) unbelievably I had a run where the terrain went all the way up to the top of the screen, I can't even see my soldier. I died because all I could see was dirt. There were enemy soldiers shooting me but I couldn't see them.

4) please please please move the knife button to the right side. It's right where your fingers are I have to stop moving and firing to use my right thumb to knife attack.

5)please move the grenade button to the right side it's right where your fingers are I have to stop moving and firing to use my right thumb to knife attack.

I will say if you fix the targeting as I suggest, the combat and sounds and explosions are very satisfying.

I'm running an IPhone 5s running IOS 8.2 I have plenty of storage and I make sure to shut down any other apps running in the background before playing.

Thank you for the review Billy! Let me address some of your concerns:
1. If you turn backwards, it is probably because you did not press the button but pressed the screen, so the player aimed backwards. If you just do the same thing but tap behind the player, it will make him aim forward again. The aiming angle of the player is based on where you tap. So if you tap above the player position, he will aim up, and if you tap behind him, he will turn around
2. The aiming works like this: the code searches through all the enemies, and selects the one that is closest to the player. It then adjusts your aim to aim at the location of the enemy's head, but only for that instance. So if you press the aim button and keep walking, your aim angle will not change. If you wanted to keep your aim always focused on the closest enemy, you would need to press the aim button consecutively.
3. What do you mean "all I could see was dirt"? Do you mean you were aiming a certain direction so the player was on the edge of the screen? Or what?
4 and 5. Hmm, I'm not sure how I would move the knife and grenade button to the right of the screen because there are already 3 buttons there (fire, aim to enemy, jump) and mostly the player is running to the right, so it might be harder to aim. And it seems like the buttons might be too far away from the fire button...


Thank you again for the review. Please respond and tell me any suggestions that could solve what you said while also working with the comments I had.


Thank you

Any other reviews would be much appreciated, as I am trying to get this game out there for people to enjoy. The game is only $0.99 with no IAP's.


Thanks, and have a nice day.

I updated Armed Combat! The update should be live in about a week. Here is what I changed:

Enemies can now shoot you even if you are not on the screen. Added gamer tags in Multiplayer, and you get points for killing each other and getting headshots. Moved grenade and knife button to the right of the screen. Player has less health now. Also added an automatic sniper rifle and shotgun grenade launcher for purchase.

It's probably the production values. The game looks fun but the presentation is not the best.
