Snowfinch's comments:





You play a very large and very stupid moose who has decided he can take on oncoming trains. (This is, by the way, an unfortunate real-world occurrence - moose tend to believe they are invincible and will "stand down" locomotives from time to time).

Swipe trains out of your way, smash them into the surrounding environment to destroy everything around you, and accumulate a moose-sized score. It's not easy to survive long against the many-ton metal locomotive beasts constantly coming your way.

It's our very first game, so be gentle We are, of course, welcoming feedback.

Downloading this one now. I'll give it a shot.

UPDATE: Ok, so I gave this a go. It's a fun little high score chaser. There's not much to it. Just holding your thumb down and swiping, but it doesn't claim to be anything more.

For a first game, it's really good! The controls work well and it has really good artwork. Great job!

Controls etc.

App Info is working now, so all the App Store metadata should be in the top post.

Curious about the controls. So far one liked them, and one didn't. Local play-testers are mostly positive on controls but occasionally some folks seem to find the timing a lot harder than others do. We did spend a lot of time on tweaking and balancing controls and tried to make them as simple as possible. To those that don't think the controls are good, what would you like to see different? Thanks for the feedback.

It's all about timing with the controls IMO. It's pretty much just swiping up when you see a train. Like I said, great job for a first game. I do like the artwork.
