Waste in Space (by Moony Baboon)

Hi guys!
The time has come to present you our upcoming game: Waste in Space!

Story
In year 2026 the issue of space debris has degenerated to a problematic level, therefore a team of selected scavengers is assembled and sent into space to solve it.
Your job is to help this crazy team to destroy the orbiting pollution, make the space a cleaner place and possibly survive in the process.

Here's the brand new teaser:



Gameplay
Waste in Space is a physics based endless arcade shooter in which you control a space sweeper with a Gravity Hat (tm), orbiting around planet earth.
Your target is to score as much points as possible, performing insane acrobatics (we will have a ton of different acrobatic figures to collect) and scoring awesome combos while collecting coins that will win you prizes, like other characters and Gravity Hats with different features.
It's a one touch game that uses three basic actions: hold, tap and swipe.
When you hold your finger on the screen an harpoon is shot to the nearest space rock and this gives you the ability to swing between rocks to collect coins.
While doing that you have to tap to destroy the space pollution and quickly attach to another rock to prevent yourself from getting lost in space.
If you score a combo without getting smashed in a rock or something you can enter the boost mode that will let you dive into space destroying every piece of trash you encounter just by touching it.

Features
- Endless gameplay
- Easy to learn one-touch controls, but difficult to master
- Physics based
- Awesome combos
- Insane acrobatics
- Improbable commentary
- 30 different characters
- 30 different gravity hats
- Hall of trash to show off your collected trash

Platforms
iOS and Android.

Thanks!
Marco

Hi guys!
Here we are with our monthly meeting for Waste in Space updates... :-)
We are working really hard to meet our January 2016 deadline while dealing with all the stuff a small indie studio has to deal with.
I spent a long time working on cloud sync of game progress and Facebook integration, to create a smooth play experience across all devices.
Simone instead worked on the our new site (by the way, give it a look if you like: www.moonybaboon.com), and created a ton of artwork to be implemented in the game and for the press.
Currently I'm working on adding the remaining features while squashing some bugs.
We haven't a new beta to let you try because things mainly changed under the hood, but we will have it in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
But, we can show you the brand new teaser video (you can find it in the first post, replacing the horrible one), that made it into the upcoming section of TouchArcade!
(We're really super-excited about that, but we're trying to act cool...)
Thanks!

Marco

Hey there,
a month has gone by, it's time for Waste in Space updates!
Release date is getting near, we are expecting to send the game to Apple for their review next week.
It has been a month of hard, hard work for us here at Moony Baboon, mainly adjusting the gameplay, squashing bugs and trying to make it the best game it can be.
We have a last beta for you to test before release, PM us or just reply here if you'd like to participate.
Thanks!

Marco

This looks fantastically fun!

I'll be buying that's for sure!

I'd love to beta test this on my iPod 6 if I could!

Thanks!
Just send us a PM here on TouchArcade with your email and we'll enable you to beta test it via testflight.
The game will be free to play, Crossy Road style.
We hope that people will show their appreciation buying some character or gravity hat (all of them unlockable just by playing anyway..).
No need to buy anything to progress through the game, just to be clear.

Marco

Hi guys!
6 months of hard work after the first line of code, we just submitted Waste in Space for Apple review!
It should take a week therefore we are planning release somewhere in the middle of next week.
I would like to thank everyone who participated at the beta test: your feedback has been invaluable!
When the review process will be done (let's hope we'll pass it..) we'll let you know the actual release date.
