Looks great! Are you going to add a drawing feature in-game? Because I dont have an iPhone and its a big hassle to import pictures to my iPod... otherwise, good job!

In Sketch Nation you can create your own shooter by drawing game objects on a piece of paper and taking a picture of them. The video shows the creation of a space shooter using drawings of ships, enemies and a level.


I would love to hear feedback about the game. Keep in mind the game is Pre-Alpha and all the art is engineer-created place-holder art.
Cool, reminds me of Shoot Em Up Contstruction Set, Blast Works, or even A Doodle Flight

Will keep an eye out for this!

Wow! That looks amazing.
This is definately worthy of a front page mention (where are you, mods?).
So have you thought about adding different mini games?
For example, you could have the space/arcade shooter, a top down racer, a platformer etc. Some variety would be nice, but it looks great as it is.
I will definately be keeping track/following the progress of this game.

I have thought of how to apply this to almost every genre, but "top down 2d shooter" seemed like the easiest place to start.
If this game is successful expect to see plenty of Sketch Nation <Insert Genre Here>.

Looks great but you should take a look at the control system from Lazrhog's Nois2za, pixel perfect control and it's easy to keep your fingers away from the action. Very easy to implement too.
