TailBomb - It's not a shooting game!

Hi, TA guys! This is PingPongFactory.
We are planning to launch a new game named "TailBomb" for iOS.

It's sort of twisted shooting gamelike arcade. Instead of using missiles and bullets like any other shooting games, this uses tail to destroy enemies.
It is inspired by very-well-known old retro Snake game

TailBomb is ready with 10 skills to strengthen the plane and you have to choose 2.
Depending on the skills you choose to play with, you can be either an offensive player, or defensive, (or maybe both).
Skills will let you enjoy the game in so many ways. Every people we asked to play choosed different skillsets.

For example, shield and invincible will let you survive a little longer, missile and whirlwind can clean up the map a little faster(which by the way will let you move around the map freely).

You'll be able to choose skills by making your own card. It is first purchasable with coins in gameplay.
Than you can upgrade your card by using cards you have as ingredients. You know how it is, higher the level gets, stronger the skills will be.
Basically, you get coins from playing, which can be used to buy cards, in turn will be used to upgrade whatever ship you choose to play.

Another distinctive feature of the game is "EventZone".

Event opens up in certain places of the map. You have to stay on the zone for a while to active it(which means you have to defend yourself from enemies without moving much, tricky).
Event activation will give you a certain powerful effect so that you can breath a little easier. Oh, well, we design the game so that activating event is a challenge worth trying for.
Tried our best to make it spectacular, and useful. Sure, one effect was hard enough, so we decided to make several.

Enough said, watch the clip below. You'll understand.
(Oh, our player choosed slow and invincible)

TailBomb is nearly done.
We have to clean up a few things, run some tests, get permission from Apple. Surely it will available in March.
Sooner in Google market(Hopefully!)

Yeah we really want to see how people enjoy our game. Though it's like Snake, we tried to add more fun into it.
