Hi Everyone, After over 2+ years of sweat, blood and tears, we are proud to present Monster Medic a 2P Local Co-op Shooter. I loved SNES game like Contra, Double Dragon, Final Fight, 1942.. actually any game with 2P so I can play with a friend. For our first game, I wanted to create a game that best friends would love playing together.

Monster Medic is an area shooter similar to Geometry Wars, where you need to survive enemy waves in order to beat a level. The twist is that 2 players control the same ship.

We designed Monster Medic with game mechanics to promote communication and teamwork. There are ship upgrades that adds bonuses if both players drive or shoots in the same direction. The mini-cannon weapon require both players to hold down their sights for two seconds to determine the target area and lay down a barrage of bullets.

Our inspiration for enemy design and generation came from Left4Dead. Our goal was to try to provide peaks and valley of excitement. We did this by adding an AI director to manage enemy spawn generation. We also played around with different types of controls and observed that players had the most fun with our current touch controls (instead of virtual joysticks).

We hope that Monster Medic can bring friends and family closer together through gaming!

Very interesting party game! First time we have an app that won't cause alienation, but rather improve relationship with friends.
The word "2P" really awaken my wonder memory during childhood.

Someone already redeemed the code. That person will probably not post anything. The best way to make sure that doesn't happen is to send them to people through PM. BTW I'm interest in giving feedback on you game. I've visited a friend in Taiwan. Where in Taiwan are you located?

Thanks for the tip and I just sent a PM with the code. Thanks in advance for your feedback. I'm living in Taipei not that far from Shih-Lin night market (in case you visited there).

Btw, we are showing Monster Medic at Indie House at the Taipei Game Show for the next 2 days. Locals can drop by our booth and try it out. Hopefully I can make it to the States on day to show the game, but it is quite expensive.

Currently our downloads have been from South East Asia, since we are fortunately enough to get Apple's "Best New Games" section features there.
