They're Coming Back! : SpikeDislike3


Youtube link | Pop Up


I had to get a new MacMini to compile this, so it'd better be worth it!!

The Spikes are back, and I'm heading back to the style of the original.
There are NO EXTRA LIVES! This game is as hard as nails!
But don't worry, there's oodles of stuff to keep you entertained, like a whole bunch of great-ish looking themes, and all manner of wonderful oddities sprinkled throughout.
SpikeDislike3 takes everything that was good about the original, and turns it up a notch.

Game Development Progress : Although the engine is wonderfully complete, there are menu tweaks to be made, (I'm still not happy about that Scoreboard layout) and a whole lot of fixings to the various gameplay styles. I'm also working on a set of levels, which need balancing out, and made more "obvious" to new players.
Hopefully I should get everything done in a fairly short amount of time.

Estimated Release : Mid-June 2015

Nearly ready for that upload, now!
I've spent the past few hours filling in all the appropriate iTunesConnect data, and am putting the final touches to the game.
All appears to be going well, which is usually about the time when it all inexplicably falls apart, due to some insanely stupid thing that nobody could ever have predicted!!



Soon, there will be bouncing

Current Status : Still waiting for Review... Gah!

I uploaded Invisible Munky 2 last Sunday, and that's not even "In Review" yet. SpikeDislike3 was uploaded on Wednesday, so expect a few days between one showing up, and then the other.
After that, I'll probably also be releasing ChuckABall, too, because I've become somewhat addicted to that over the past couple of days!

*sigh*
Coding games, Composing music, Creating art, even making trailers and uploading everything, I can cope with.. But .. Then there's that waiting.. .. Ugh.

Shouldn't be too long. *fingers crossed*

The waiting game.
I hate this game!
I'm now waiting for THREE games to get through Apple Review, and given we're now knee deep in WWDC-City, I can't see that happening any time soon!
Bah, humbug.

Hopefully I did everything correctly, otherwise I've got 3 games to fix!!

Unfortunately, Apple have rejected the first upload.

The reason : I added "SpikeDislike" and "SpikeDislike2" to the metadata keyword list.
Apparently, I'm not allowed to name the previous editions of the very same game that I'm uploading.
A ludicrously dumb rule, especially given the number of clones/rip-offs and other things that are flooding the AppStore... and a rule which has probably set the thing back another entire week or so.

Very annoyed, right now.
