Slam Mania (accepting beta testers)

I've been prototyping a new wrestling game, loosely based on Mat Mania/Exciting Hour, and will be ready (this upcoming weekend) to start a public beta.

The biggest challenges have been mapping controls sensibly to the touch screen, and expanding old school core game mechanics to include more skill/timing/tactics based action. For anyone interested in this type of game, this is a great opportunity to provide wishlist features & feedback and help improve what's already shaping up to be a very fun game.

Better late than never! I'm ready to distribute beta of Slam Mania and begin soliciting feedback.

It currently supports three modes:

1. training, where you can practice moves against a passive compute opponent, that'll follow you around but otherwise let you beat the eggs out of him.
2. cpu: fight against an aggressive computer controller opponent.
3. player vs. player online - using game center networking based on GGPO.

Will aim to post some updated video later this week, but in the meantime am looking for some hardcode players to sign up and provide gameplay/controls feedback. Please shoot me your email and I'll add you as an external testers.
