Smashed - 2.5d Physics Destruction Game

"Smashed" is a 2.5d physics game where you get to solve physics puzzles by destroying things.

We've just submitted it to the store, so I would appreciate some feedback on these pics and vids - we need to find out if we have delusions of adequacy or not.







Lots more images at our gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/hackdirt

Game Details:
  • 60+ Levels over 7 episodes.
  • Interesting destructive tools to use.
  • Play in both landscape and portrait modes.
  • Awesomely fun level selection screens where you get to chuck levels around.
  • 30 mins of originally composed dubstep and drum n bass music.
  • Interesting storyline, featuring a demolition company, a crooked city council, a young journalist, a mysterious artist, corruption, and intrigue.

Not sure what price we'll settle on yet.

This looks very cool. I love destruction / block games. I used to use real blocks, but now I'm too old and the items in my house are too expensive to warrant throwing a tennis ball at block structures. Now I can get these games on my iPhone and nobody can catch me at it.

Looks really good!

Text is very hard to read in some of the screenshots though.

I take it you get to break things with a real physics engine and there's a storyline too? Now that's a well rounded game!

All done with your finger - tap to smash, tap to pan around levels, pinch to zoom, tap and drag blocks, etc.

Thanks!

I reduced the images so I could fit more in - here's how the text will appear in the game:

I love the way this looks so far, I have yet to buy a block destroying game because they all seem so mediocre, but this one takes the cake. I would've liked it more if the characters seem more animated and less real. But that's probably just me.

Nice graphics! The textures remind me of the levels in Sway
