Buddy Toss, a cube art ragdoll flicking target game

Hey there! New to posting on Touch Arcade, just a two developer team that are about to launch our new iOS game called Buddy Toss. It is a cube art ragdoll flicking target game. We really enjoy playing it and who doesn't like funny ragdoll physics right! Curious what everyone thought of the game because we are about to launch in the next few weeks.

I am excited to announce we are going to be on the App Store world wide on September 10th!

- 3 game levels (Wind, TNT, Buddy Pong)
- 51 winnable characters
- 32 winnable accessories
- Hundreds of configurations
- Realistic physics engine
- Game Center Achievements
- Game Center Leaderboards
- Random acts of gifts!

So that is Buddy Toss. I hope we hear some feedback, we would love to post some more gameplay videos for everyone on this thread .

Here is a gameplay video I recorded using everyplay that is in the Buddy Toss game. I missed the target and smashed his face off the front of the platform lol.

Just got App Store Approval - GamePlay Insight

We used Unity 3D for development and started Buddy Toss back in February 2015 and I am really happy to announce that we just received approval from the app store a few hours ago! So excited!

Wanted to talk a bit more about the gameplay, the Wind Level is similar to Paper Toss with the wind interacting with your buddy and the point is to rack up as many points as you can when flicking your buddy toward the target, the more bullseyes in a row multiply your points and those points turn into credits. Those credits are used to unlock the other two modes (TNT and Buddy Pong). We provide free random gifts with the exchange of 100 credits to win new characters and props to dress up your buddy.

Props will explode off your buddy on high impact or collision which is really fun to watch. TNT mode you have to be accurate with your toss toward the target because if you hit the TNT you are going for a ride and more than likely will get launched off the platform. Each successful point adds a new barrel of TNT to the platform.

My favorite mode is Buddy Pong which is a play on the popular drinking game beruit or "beer pong". Buddy Toss is a kids game so we used water in the cup . We spent a lot of time optimizing the flick to make it feel like you are completely in control of the flick of your buddy's distance and direction. Buddy Pong is a time trial based game sink all 10 cups as fast as you can.

Thanks freakernet! Me too! Myself and the other developer on the team have so many great ideas for other games we want to produce and if we were able to get featured by Apple we would be able to produce them much quicker. I'll post a video of the game modes later today...Everyplay makes that so convienent .

As promised here is a gameplay video sped up to 2X to show you an entire round of Buddy Pong...enjoy! Character used was Psycho Buddy with Tiger feet and Patriot Shield for accessories.

Next video I will post will be me trying to get to level 12 in TNT mode, it may take me a few tries because its tough with that many TNT barrels on the platform to avoid .

Posting a video of the TNT Level in Buddy Toss...I know I said I would make it to level 12, but only got to level 11 when I nailed a TNT barrel and it sent me flying. I did get two bullseyes in a row though! I will see if I can triple bullseye in the Wind Level next.

Redeemed ENMY3XMMAMH3. Thank you.

Looks like a fun game and interested to see if you have managed to deal with the lack of longevity for a game like this.

Will report back when I get a chance to fire it up
