The Creeps! Needs Beta Testers!

UPDATE:
The beta is now closed. We're almost done!!


Hi Everyone in Touch Arcade land! I'm the Dev of "The Creeps!", one of the App Store's original Tower Defense Games. I'm excited to tell you that I'm nearing completion of the newest update to The Creeps!... version 1.4.0!!

So what's new?

1. You will no longer be required to choose a name to play offline.
2. More Awards (Achievements) for a total of 1750 Pocket Score (up from the current 1000)

And most importantly...
3. New levels and new Creeps! Three new level packs will be available for purchase (@ $.99 each). The level packs will add a total of 30 new levels (18 unique maps)... This will DOUBLE the number of available maps!

Which brings me to the purpose of this post... I need help testing all these levels!

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester, DO NOT POST HERE and please DO NOT PM ME on TouchArcade. Instead, email me at betatesting@supersquawksoftware.com. Make sure to tell me why you think you'll be a good tester.

I'm looking for people who have experience testing games, and specifically people who are already really good at The Creeps. I'm talking about people who have gotten a gold star on every level on Hard. I'll be expecting actual feedback about the difficulty and fun factor of each level... and if you find any bugs (although I'm not expecting many). I'll pick up to 25 qualified applicants right away (I want to get the update done as soon as possible!). Arn, Eli, Ryan... any of you TA guys are welcome to participate just to check it out (I know you don't have time to do actual beta testing!).

Anyway, here's a teaser screen . I just love the art for the new DINOSAUR enemies! I'm not showing you the MegaBoss just yet, I don't want to spoil the surprise!

HOORAY! That's good news! I love The Creeps, did nearly all levels on hard now and I am really looking forward to new levels and new creeps!

Is there an in-app-purchase and will all levels implemented in the main game?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Great news on the upcoming update. Creeps is one of my favorite TD games. Any screens on the new levels for the public?

Just this one, I think.

Hey, you're close to 3.000 posts!


Awww... I don't know if I would be a good beta tester. Maybe I'll just wait for the level packs.

Will 1.4.0 be a free update or will it be DLC?

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Quoting Regularstormy:

Looks like the new maps will be DLC.

I have gotten so many hours of enjoyment out of Creeps and the dev has added so much free contents to the game since version 1.0 and the fact that the game cost only $0.99 to begin with, I would be more than happy to buy the new maps.

Now, hurry up with the testing phase!

I sent an email! Hope you let me test! There's one level on hard that I can't seem to get the Gold Star on, though. Will that hurt my chances?

Lol...I'm pretty sure you're fine. I can barely get gold on half of the hard levels, so I'm just gonna wait for the update to come.

It's cool, refreshing, and irresistibly tantalizing...ChocoVanilla Ice-Cream!

ah, I'd like to test something, never tested anything before, so I have no experience really plus I really suck at the Creeps
