Bacon May Die - pig based beat em up & shoot em up (beta testing)

Hello hello,

I'd like to show you my new game! Bacon May Die is a mixture of various arcade and action game subgenres, it has a bit of running, dodging, brawling and shooting in it. With multiple of melee and ranged weapons to use (more being added every update) and tons of outfits to make your potato-like character to look as silly as possible.



No on-screen buttons. Game is tap and swipe controlled to ensure that even chaotic screen mashing can produce a spectacularly messy results. There's no tutorial at the moment, so I would like to mention a couple of important things:

  1. Swiping down does a roll, which helps dodge through enemies
  2. Swipe forward will dash with a spin attack
  3. Holding side of the screen will slow time and shoot at the closest enemy



At the moment it only has a single level, which go endlessly with checkpoints (your progress is saved!) which increase the enemy "pressure" and count. I plan to add ways to transition to different environments.



Game is in active development and any feedback or suggestions for weapons, enemies or even gameplay mechanics are welcome!



I'm not saying that player will definitely be able to pilot that plane in the GIF above, but what if it could..? Wouldn't that be cool..? *wink wink*

Hit me up with your email and a short line why you'd like to try the game to be added to Testflight! I'd love to hear what you think about this gameplay, controls, enemies and weapons, so I could make the game better for everyone!

P.S. If you're looking for something different, maybe try my Iron Snout fighting game (TA thread)?



Also, check out my Twitter and all other games I released on iOS!

Cheers!
