Geometry War coming

i have spent more than one month develop the game which popular on XBOX360(Geometry War).

So i have some question about the game ?

1. Can i use the name "Geometry War"for the application on appstore?
2. Should i need to complete all the levels before release the game? so far, i have
complete about 15 levels now.
3. Should i release sale version first, or free version?

and do you like the game ? two month ago, i give up my job, and full-time develop iPhone game --- "Hook Me-The Creatures Of The Deep" , i have release the sale version after i finished all the 49 levels. but it's sale badly, and
2 month's work get nothing income!


so this time for the game , Should i need to complete the all the levels(30 in all), then release it, or now?

Which game theme do you like? background with image? or background with black color?


Any advise for the game ICON ?

many thanks!

are you the Geometry Wars creator?? if so...

release it as a full game. we would rather wait for the complete game than wait for updates.

there is nothing wrong with you naming the game geometry wars because it is your game after all.

i like the one with the backgound.

I havent tried geometry wars but guarantee you I'd buy it for the idevices.

nice icon

Goodluck!

i dont think you can name it geometry wars (without wanting someone to jump on you for it) because you are not the original creator (at least i dont think so..).
You should release the two versions (full and free) at the same time, allowing people to try it out before they buy it Happy customers means more refferals
More levels the better! Haha

Yes, it would be copyright infringement. Don't use that name.

no, because...

one: people will expect too much for it, they will think that it is indeed made by the same creators of Geometry wars for the 360!

Two: it's still has Geometry wars in it.

Use a completely different name. Using a name like iGeometry War, gives the impression you're trying to make money off the Geometry Wars name... and that could lead to copyright problems...

The game looks very nice.
