Payload: 2D Physics Truck Driving Game, Pre-release testers needed

Payload 2D Physics Truck Driving Game

We just submitted a physics-based game I worked on as the developer called Payload. Pending Apple's approval, we're looking to launch very soon.

In the meantime, I am looking to recruit some early adopters to help us get the word out and test out a pre-release version of Payload.

PM me or e-mail (buck@prop.gr) your iPhone UDID and we'll send you a pre-release copy of Payload.

More info about Payload:

Website: http://prop.gr/payload/
Twitter: http://twitter.com/payload_Buck/
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Payload-Buck/187672481552

How to play
Drive Buck and his truck across the landscape from job to job, catching falling items to earn his Payload. Drive through Quarries, Forests, Cities, and the Arctic Tundra (More levels to come!). Catch as many items as you can, but beware of items too big to catch. A two ton boulder could crush the truck.

Thanks!
Rod

wish I'd seen the request earlier, it does look like it will be fun

There is still a chance to sign up for testing 1.1, with some improvements we worked on the last 2 weeks.
PM me your UDIDs :-)

Can I suggest real quick to tighten the controls up? Seems like no matter how carefully I tilt my device, I either roll full speed to the left or right.

I can see the game needs this just from watching the video.

Accelerometer Controls

We worked on tuning the accelerometer for quite a while, some players liked it more sensitive, other less. In the video Ben is purposely tilting the iPod quite a bit for effect. In the current version you don't have to tilt it very much, it is sensitive, but not overly so as to be shaky, the truck ramps up in speed with the angle of tilt.

I hear you though, I will add a accelerometer sensitivity and damping setting in the control panel in the next update.

We extended the promotion with http://appventcalendar.com for a another day, Payload is FREE again today for a final day.
