Whac-a-Mole, official thread

Hey guys. Just wanted to post a little information about our new title, ”Whac-a-Mole – Raise Your Mallets.” The game is based on the official brand by Mattel and is launching on iPhone and iPod Touch.

Features:

4 different game modes: Standard, Cork mode, Follow the leader and Mastermind.
3 mini-games
Special power-ups and weapons
The only official whac-a-mole gameplay.

More info here:

We can provide promo codes and would very much like any feedback you guys have to offer. Only way to improve!

Reviews:
TouchGen: "[...]a complete package with good production values."
"Bright and colourful with a splash of retro thrown in."
"Superfun to play[...]way better than all the clones out there."

Capsule Computers: "You can't go wrong with Whac-a-Mole."

GearDiary: "Whac a Mole is very graphically impressive. The animated little moles are well done, and all the transitions are very smooth. It’s also extremely responsive, even on my first-gen iPhone."

"I could easily see handing this game to a kid and not seeing them for hours as they get lost playing. But this game is for more than just kids…my friends enjoyed playing this so much I had to steal my phone back to complete the review!"

Keep whacking those moles!

I think this may be the only officially licensed Whac-a-Mole video game I've ever seen. Looks good, Ill admit, but I suspect this is more of the same Filler story: An original will be overshadowed by the many imitators that have already come before it.

Isn't this way too expensive? It looks ok I guess, but the price seems a little too excessive...

I think it is a pretty fair price. We have really paid an attention to detail in this very first release. However, we have noted your comment ;-)

This is actually surprisingly good for a simple whac a mole game. You can get upgrades by playing little mini games. It's actually really good.

I'd love a promo code. I have two kids 4 and 7, and I'll include their thoughts in an itunes review.

Price is outrageous. For a simple app like this I'd have expected the price to be free or $0.99.
GL with your sales I suppose.

I agree with the high price. Possibly 1.99 would be fair. But I think I would pay $1 for this, and I really would, as I have been looking for a nice wac a mole game. One thing you have to keep in mind is that this is the Appstore, as of now the game pricing is ridiculous; people are only willing to pay $1 for most games. Anything priced above that must be an awesome, large game.
