StarFly (by TechBee Software)

Hi TouchArcade community!

I’m here today because I like to show you guys our last game, costed endless hour of work and almost depleted our real life “stamina” bar. It’s called StarFly and we really hope that you can like it!

Sign up to beta-testing => http://goo.gl/forms/bHcN4yIOLL



Initially inspired by the classic old school arcade game we decided to develop something fresh and stilish that best suits the mobile controls and market. It’s a 3D “racing” game where you have to drive two symmetrical stars into a space tunnel (that of course gravitate toward the void of the galaxy ) avoiding obstacles. While you fly you have to collect “sparks” of different color that can boost your speed or lower it, so that you can face complex patterns of the track with calm or simply fly like a boss with maximum speed!!!

We were having so much fun playing the game challenging the other devs at the office that we thought that a multiplayer mode could do the trick better. So we did it, you can connect with your Facebook account and challenge people around the world in a real time multiplayer race with ranking! Honestly we’re very proud of this game mode and we hope it can guarantee endless hour of fun to all the ppl.



I hope you guys can enjoy our (big) efforts, here is the trailer.





We welcome any feedback from this community, so just write what you think about the game here, we will take it into serious consideration.

I’ll leave with this quote that I really love:

The game is still in development and if any of you guys want to try it send me a mail at vladimir[at]techbee.company.

Thanks
- Vladimir

As I can see on screens and the trailer, the game uses different styles for the tunnel. Can I customize styles or the game uses random ones?

The game has shop of customization. You can set new style for stars, obstacles and walls of tunnel. The new style costs several sparks. You can collect the sparks in the tunnel. All is easy.

Energy system and monetization is going to ruin this game for me. And I'm not the only one. This will invite endless criticism on this forum. Maybe it's just not for me. The game is great fun, undoubtedly. I don't do monetized energy or consumable iaps or any combination of the two. Only saving of any grace for me would be one fairly priced buy out of said energy system, period. This will be the first post and first request if you launch as is. To offer ad buy out along with consumable energy in packages is a major downer. Ppl will rage, just saying. If I can't get a straight premium buy out of ads or energy, I don't give a game a second look. The games are really fast and my 5 energies were burnt in less than 2 min. The 800 energy + ad buy out is lack luster. I'm not going to do a mathematical breakdown of how long that would last along with the recharge time, but it doesn't work for me. Me and many many others just want one purchase to drop energy systems 100%. Anyways, just my sentiments, thanks.

The game really looks awesome, at least the graphics rocks!

I don't get perfectly what H4nd0fg0d is saying with his reply but for sure if there is no free way to play for hourse ppl will hate the game. If i have to spend money just for playing your game i will surely uninstall it after some seconds.

Anyway the most interesting thing is the multiplayer: the possibility to race against real people will surely make me mad about the game and i will play for hours trying to beat everyone (i love racing games ). About that, the only thing i can suggest is to make possible to challenge a friend and not only random people. What i hate about clash royale is that is not possible to challenge a friend of mine that is connected at the same time in a friendly battle. I don't know if it's possible for you to make such a thing but... just my 2 cents.

That said, i'm impressed: real good work guys! look forward to play the game when it will be released.

H4nd0fg0d, thanks a lot for your feedback.

We really want to do so that the player had a lot of fun of the game. indeed, the energy system is not configured completely. We would like to know the opinion from the beta testers about this system and configure it.

MasterRron, thanks you too, for your words.
Game is free, if you lost all energy, you can watch a short rewarded video and refill all energy and play again and again.

Maybe, five energy is not enough for players.

Personally, I'd like a one time iap to completely disable the energy system and leave a choice to watch ads for currency if there are going to be available upgrades. Great game tho.

H4nd0fg0d, Thanks.

We think that need to set max energy to 10, the player can play more matches before waiting new energy or watching a video.
As I said, is not problem to watch a rewarded video. It's free and takes only several seconds for the player.

And we will think about unlimited system of energy.
