-----------------
Thank you all for participating our first Testflight Beta! We got a lot of valuable feedback from you guys. Thank you so much!

If you participated in the first one, you will receive the invitation for the second one as well.






Hi everyone,

We are a new indie game studio from Finland and we have been developing a mobile game called Shadow Bug.
It's an action adventure game for both iPad and iPhone.

What we are most excited about in Shadow Bug is the unique core game mechanic. In the game you attack and jump at the same time by tapping on the enemies in the game world. This way the game doesn't need any digital buttons for the movement.

The best description so far we have heard from a player testing the game is: "It's like Badland meets Super Meat Boy."
What do you think, is that description anywhere close?

We are aiming to release in early 2016.

Please tell us what you think of the game. All feedback is much appreciated. Hope you guys like Shadow Bug!

Thanks a lot!

Much can still change, but we are planning to have around 50 levels when we release the game. The levels will have varying sizes.

A very interesting gameplay, from the video it seems too dark to me, but I've signed up for beta to see how it really looks on the device. Anyways good job and good luck!
