Pixel Machines for tvOS/iOS. Beta testers welcome!

I'm almost done with my take on retro games. Fast, top down racing game for both iOS and tvOS. PM me your Apple ID if you want to try it out!


Youtube link | Pop Up


Feature overview:
  • Top down, retro style racing game
  • Fun tracks with many pitfalls, obstacles and dangerous objects
  • Tournament play against bots, or go head to head against other players
  • Online multiplayer on Game Center
  • Challenge other players by sending them your "ghost" gameplay
  • Leaderboards and Achievements galore!

What makes it special:
  • Fast! (60fps) Even on older devices.
  • Play local multiplayer using an MFI controller with your friends
  • No controller? No problem! You can still use your iPhone as a controller
  • Very simple gameplay with the Siri Remote. Just direct the car by touching the pad
  • Can go up to 8 players! Just think how crowded the couch will be
  • Not exactly a couch person? Then challenge the planet by completing races and climbing the leaderboards, saving your ghost for others to play against
  • Fancy effects with many custom shaders. You can feel the car explosion!
  • Seamless controller connectivity between tvOS and iOS

Yes please!

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

this game looks so cool, I love how that piano roads sounds when cars pass over it.
is this just multiplayer game only? or can we play against bots?
also if the game is a multiplayer only, can we play against game center friends (random player)? thanks

Sorry I couldn't respond quick enough, but thanks copaeci! You can play against bots or local players with MFi controllers (you can use another iPhone as a controller).

I'm working on Game Center multiplayer as of this moment and it's looking very promising!

Tried!
I have to say it's a nice Micro Machines clone.
MFi controls have some problems in menu navigation (I can't choose in which challenge play), in game they seem ok.
