Rocket Boy - Fast paced action side scroller

I'm very proud to announce that Rocket Boy, my first game, released today.

It's a 2D action side-scoller with fast paced, non-stop action. You are equipped with one weapon, a rocket launcher with unlimited ammo. To help your in your question for destruction, you can purchase airstrikes, blow up dynamite, reflect bullets and much more.

iTunes link : http://itunes.apple.com/app/RocketBoy/id338505371?mt=8

Features:

- Regular mode : Get to the end of the level before the time runs out. If it does, you will get crushed by an army of enemies.

- Survival mode : The game gets harder as you progress and it never ends. Time doesn't matter, get as far as you can possibly can.

- Tilt to walk : Buttons are for difference attacks. To walk, tilt your iPhone left or right.

- Jet pack : Who needs jumping when you have a jet pack. Don't hold the button too long or you might get a nasty surprise.

- Shake to call airstrikes : To buy an airstrike, you can press the airstrike button or shake the iPhone. Shaking to call an air strike keeps your other fingers ready for action.

- Online leaderboard : Each level has a table in the leaderboard. Compare your times or distances with the rest of the world.

Here are a couple promo codes. Please leave a review if you use one of them.

Since yesterday I've been trying to add the youtube video directly into the forum. Can anyone please tell me how? Most threads are like that.

Thanks!

BTW, after sending promo codes to review websites and such, I will add more here. I'm not too sure on how much to keep for them.

The code is:

...minus the space in -> [ youtube]

Edit that into your first post and I will remove it from this one.

PS> I'd love to try this if you have any codes left!

Thanks for your support all. 1.0.1 with a few fixed bugs is coming soon (Submitting today) & 1.1 with Zombies & a couple features will come soon after.

As for the fast pace, yes it's very fast If you don't use the buttons at the bottom of the screen (Powers), you won't get far so yes, fast thinking is required.

I hope you enjoy!

Here are 2 new codes:

Hi,

Since my update to Rocket Boy + Lite versions are coming very soon, I have plenty of promo codes left to give out.

If you want one, reply here and I will send you a private message. I will reply here once I don't have anymore.

If you use one, please come back here and tell me what you think about it. An iTunes review would be nice too.

I have approximately 30 codes to give out.

Enjoy!
