Jetpack Joust (by RondoRocket Games)

Hey all,

I'm working on wrapping up my latest game called Jetpack Joust. You fly from floor to floor trying to defeat enemies by attacking them from above. As you reach the higher floors there are more enemies and they move faster.

Updated with video and I'm also looking for beta testers!

Thanks!
-RR

Game looks pretty cool. Well done.

You can also include accelerometer controls in this. So just tapping and holding lets you use the jetpack and tilting left and right makes him move sideways. Just a suggestion, as generally i like to avoid on screen buttons.


Besides that, the floors concept is really cool. Looking forward to playing this :-).

Hey All in a Days Play, thanks for the feedback, the accelerometer idea is a good one! If I can get the accelerometer controls working smoothly I'll add them in - I'm actually testing it right now.
