Your game looks awfully interesting. What engine did you use? On the fence on whether to buy it or not. Looks way better than Radiation Island...

So I bought the game. Pretty disappointed at the moment. First off, the graphics in the game do not look like the graphics in the screen shots. I'm on an iPad Air 2, full resolution etc. The graphics are very choppy. The controls need a ton of work. Even after adjusting the sensitivity, I was walking around as well I had come off a 48 hour binger. The monster looking thing was kicking my ass, and left me no chance of surviving.

How do I use the gun? I see a pistol and some bullets, but I can't seem to use them. Please let me know. Regardless, I do appreciate the effort you put forth in this title.

Hi. Apologies for your initial run. You use the gun by sliding it in the boxes on the bottom. Then after you close the menu you can use the items by tapping on the box. To equip clothing you slide it over the character model. I didn't get any graphical issue suggestions from any of my iPad Air 2 Test flight testers, so I might have missed something. My store screen shots are from my test builds with an iPad Air.

I have graphical settings that you can adjust on the title screen under the options menu. Try adjusting the resolution or turning off the camera effects. That may help initially. On the top left of the screen are two numbers. One is the FPS. The other is your ping. What is the FPS? Does it fluctuate wildly?

fishdixgaming ran a 14+ hour stream on the game. He looked like he had a pretty good time to get that amount of hours out of it. If you jump around his stream you can see around 6:29 a bunch of guys he is interacting with in the stream. And he has generaly gameplay, interaction, shooting other players all around his stream.

Be aware his stream is for mature audiences only.
